Chairman Blank explained the proposed road maintenance
budget of $18,362 for 2009. Out of the $81,000 from
the State Road Budget, we are making a payment on
the Welsh Bridge project of $26,000, and using some
of the state monies to pay the snow plowing charges.
Questions raised as to the low monies set for maintenance.
It was explained that due to the payments that the
town has with loan payments and snow plowing, road
maintenance will be kept to a minimum this year. Dave
also explained that the town would not be seal coating
any roads this year.
The resolution to adopt the town tax levy of $131,144,
was passed by a vote of 8 ayes, 0 nays, and 2 abstained.
Motion by Joe Hasslinger, seconded by Sandy Thoma

TOWN OF CLYMAN
SPECIAL BUDGET MEETING
The Special town meeting to approve the 2009 proposed
budget was called to order at 7:30.
Motion by Nancy/Dave to approve the road maintenance
budget for 2009. A roll call vote was taken and unanimously
Treasurer Chris Spilker went through the line items
in the budget. Discussion was held on the police patrol
issue. Chairman Blank advised that he felt a police
patrol would curb vandalism in the cemeteries and
would also be available to help with accidents patrol.
Question was raised as to what the village makes back
vs. what is paid out. They were advised that the village
makes about $4,000 to $5,000. Question also asked
if the police would also be able to issue citations
for zoning violations and it was stated that they
would be able to issue the citations. Dave expects
that this will probably be brought up again at the
annual meeting. Questions were raised about the attorney
fees, especially Attorney Roder’s fees. It was
felt that Roder was not being fair to the Town with
everything he was doing and he was not including the
town board in discussions. Some felt that the board
did not have any input in the CUP conditions. Discussion
held on the condition in the CUP of ULWR being able
to choose the attorney for the town. Dave explained
that this meant that in the event ULWR and the town
gets sued over land spreading or issues pertaining
to the lagoons, ULWR has the right to choose the attorney
to represent the town and ULWR because ULWR would
be responsible. Discussion held on the upcoming appeals
board meeting. Marylee Peterman felt that the board
needs to advise Atty. Roder that the people are not
happy with the terms of the CUP. Question was raised
as to what was involved with cemetery maintenance.
It was explained that it involved fixing the head
stones, and possibly extending the gates of Eagle
