Road Report:

Supervisor Abba reported

  • full mow starts late next week
  • 96/45 intersection is on track for an August 1 opening but some parts may open before then. All town signs that were added for additional traffic on other roads will be removed starting Aug 3, weight limit enforcement will start August 2 to ensure trucks are following the truck route, and Brehmer Rd will need just minor maintenance because it held up very well under the additional traffic.
  • The road striping on the hills works so well that striping will be added to Guhl and Kanaman in the hill areas at a cost of approximately $1,800.
  • Guhl/Magolski chip sealing has been postponed to 2019.
  • Klemp, Tamarack, and Whispering Winds subdivision chip sealing will be completed the week of August 13. Thank you to Go Green for the significant savings on chips.
  • Cut-Off’s culvert is scheduled to be replaced later this summer and will take 3 days due to the fact that the culvert is down 14 feet. The date of the work is unknown at this time.
  • Guhl Rd’s stretch from the railroad to Brehmer should be completed mid August.
  • Palmbach rebuild starts late this week with chip sealing the week of August 13.
  • Pines Rd experienced a washout in the recent heavy rainstorm and the Town Board is working to resolve a ditching/drain tile issue.
  • Kanaman Rd’s frost heave issue should be resolved permanently and the road repair is planned.


CEC Report:

Park Plan group is working on fund raising for the perimeter trail, playground expansion, and storage building.

Marketing: Star Communications will be allowed on the tower at Readfield school, which will hopefully help bring broadband options to areas of the town.


County Supervisor Report:

Pete Bosquez reported that:

  • There’s potential interest in the county-owned land for sale in Caledonia. He’s helping direct the interested party to the right people.
  • Parks & Rec: approved bike & pedestrian trail plan. Hartman’s Creek trails are used more than Door County trails. Caledonia can contact the county to have any of our current or proposed trails added to the Waupaca County trail map.
  • ATV/UTV trails are now allowed to use county roads to connect trails. While there are not many trails yet, this action enables trails to go in. This is part of the overall recreation plan.

Meeting adjourned at 8:25.

Respectfully Submitted,

Natalie Snyder, Clerk
