Special Town Board Meeting February 11, 2010


Of February 11, 2010
Chair Lu Peet called the Special Town Board Meeting to order at 5:35PM. Roll call taken and all were present. The agenda for the meeting is as follows:
1)                Ordinances: The Town Board will review all ordinances and set new fees in Chapter 5.
2)                Discussion on Constable position.
Constable Mike O’Keefe was present for the meeting also, so the Board elected to discuss the Constable position first while he was present. There was discussion on what would be needed to make the constable position an appointed one, and Clerk-Treasurer Brustad will check with the requirements with the town’s attorney, John Carlson. O’Keefe said he basically thought it should be an appointed position because there is extensive training needed to keep it at the level it is currently at.  We basically are a police department according to the State DOJ. Mike said he didn’t agree with how it went down at the last Annual meeting but he did agree it should not be an elected position. The Board felt 50-60 hours per month would be required for an appointed position, mainly weekends. 
After starting to review the ordinances, it was felt that a few should check out the County’s ordinances first to see if we could delete some of ours. Chris, Donna and Lu will review the county ordinances and the Board will meet again to discuss how to proceed. 
Motion ( Webb/Meinke) to adjourn the meeting of February 11, 2010. Motion carried. The meeting adjourned at 7:15PM.
Respectfully Submitted,
Elaine Brustad
Dated this 18th day of February, 2010
