The first line of business was with David Bloxsom who was representing the Cub Scouts. The
Scouts would like to hold a Jousting Exhibition on the Friday of their day camp. This event would be open to the public and no admission fee would be charged. Mr. Bloxsom informed the Council the Scouts would be responsible for clean up after the horses and the divots they make. A motion to approve the Jousting event passed 3 – 0.

The next line of business was a lengthy discussion was a question/answer forum between residents in attendance and Mr. Ryan Trout a guest in attendance in reference to the May 14th Election. Resident Brian Laurich had great concerns about the campaigning that led up to the Election. The Council also spoke and answered all questions directed to them.

Commissioner Brakebill reported there was no April Planning and Zoning meeting held and he is still waiting on the updates for the WRE/MGE maps. He feels there may be some delays in the process with the change in Council.

Commissioner Rittelmeyer reported on and email he received in reference to the crosswalk signal at Liberty Rd and Rt. 194. Mary reported calling the State to have it fixed.

Burgess Smith reported the cost for fixing the drain pipe at Trout’s Restaurant would be $4800 and he had Bob Shoemaker lined up for the repair.

Commissioner Rensberger would like to meet with Burgess Smith to discuss Park projects. Burgess Smith will contact him to arrange a date and time.

Commissioner Rensberger reported on the following, the cub scouts will paint the tables in a pavilion on June 7th and will paint one table with their information on it. FY12 is approved for $32,000 for the Elementary School project. Burgess Smith will contact town attorney Clapp in reference to the Joint Users Agreement. FY13 is due in the coming months. We can apply for CPP grant money but not POS due to the 25% portion the town would have to pay. There is no progress on the fishing pier. Commissioner Rittelmeyer would like to install solid boarding across the access to it and Mary informed him the maintenance guys have already done that. Commissioner Rensberger indicated he would have something done in the next three weeks before his term ends.

Commissioner Rittelmeyer inquired on the sludge hauling RFP and Mary informed him it is out for bid. She also informed him she is working on an RFP for Plant Operator and it will soon be advertised. It was suggested having Marc Angleberger stay on as Plant Operator through July. Mary will contact him.

Burgess Smith reported he has informed the maintenance guys to place a temporary fence in the park where the creek bed is eroding and getting close to the walking path. He will also contact Stine to inquire on when they will begin working on the creek bed.

Burgess Smith reported the curb on Cornell Drive has been fixed.

Burgess Smith handed out a Budget to Actual report and reviewed it with the Commissioners.

There being no further business a motion to adjourn the meeting passed 4 – 0.
