- Final Plat Review – Wildenberg North. Mr. Jakel explained that Commission approval of the plat would be contingent on a number of issues – a ten-foot utility easement should be shown along Lots 17 through 27. An easement granting the City of Kaukauna property for storm water purposes should be labeled on the plat. If the electrical service and sewer and water are to be looped, an easement must be noted. A storm sewer easement from the road to the pond must be included. Wetlands need to be mitigated or evidence of WDNR approval shown. On-going issues related to Wildenberg 4 need to be resolved prior to approval of this plat. Mr. Sundelius explained that staff met with the applicant regarding the issues with Wildenberg 4 – they are working with their engineer to address them. Mr. Sundelius explained that this review does not mean that Mr. Dercks can start construction – this plat still needs final approval by the Council and the on-going issues with Wildenberg 4 need to be resolved. Mr. Jakel explained that he would draft a letter to Mr. Dercks defining the issues and clarifying the criteria for approval. The letter will be copied to Attorney Davidson. A motion to recommend to the Council approval of the plat subject to the conditions noted above was made by Sundelius, seconded by McGinnis. All members voted aye. Motion carried.
- Warranty Deed for STH 55 ROW. Mr. Jakel explained that the warranty deed would accommodate the acquisition of property for the reconstruction for STH 55. Once the four parcels of municipally-owned property as acquired by the City, costs will be reimbursed by the State as part of the project. Mr. Sundelius asked for clarification on why a parcel of land connecting US 41 and the on-ramp is not being acquired. Mr. Jakel will look into it and suggested that the property might be assembled and re-platted as right-of-way. A motion to recommend to the Council approval of the warranty deed as presented was made by Schoenike, seconded by Feldt. All members voted aye. Motion carried.
There being no further business to be brought before the Commission, a motion to adjourn the meeting at 4:20 p.m. was made by Sundelius, seconded by Feldt. All members voted aye. Motion carried.
