Mrs. Groskopf read Resolution No. 99-01.
WHEREAS, Jefferson County has approved participation in the Multi-County HOME Investment Partnership Program through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, and
WHEREAS, the Waukesha County Board of Supervisors has passed an Ordinance approving a change in program year from June 1 - May 31 to January 1 - December 31 to maintain consistency with its county fiscal year and improve audit reporting, and
WHEREAS, such a change requires cooperating HOME partners to agree to the change,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the annual program year for the HOME Investment Partnership be changed from a June 1 - May 31 program year to a January 1 - December 31 program year beginning January 1, 2000.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the terms of the HOME Investment Partnership Agreement be changed to be consistent with the new program year.
PROGRAM CHANGE FISCAL NOTE:
The Tri-County Home allocation from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development for the period from June 1, 1999 through May 31, 2000 is $793,000. The effect of a change in the HOME program year will be to move forward the timetable for receipt of the next HUD allocation of Tri-County HOME funds. Instead of the next funding allocation covering the period from June 1, 2000 through May 31, 2001, the funding will be moved forward to fund the period from January 1, 2000 through December 31, 2000. No additional funding will be received by the Tri-County HOME program; however, by changing the program year funding will be received on January 1 rather than May 31. For the initial year of this change, funding for the period from January 1, 2000 through May 31, 2000 will receive funding from both the 1999/2000 and the new 2000 program year.
Mrs. Groskopf moved that Resolution 99-01 be adopted. Seconded and carried.
Mr. Buchanan read Resolution No. 99-02.
WHEREAS, previous Jefferson County audits have recommended that all bank accounts opened by or credit cards issued to all County departments or employees be approved in advance to ensure proper accounting and expenditure control, and

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that all departments and employees shall be required to obtain Audit Committee approval before opening a bank account or obtaining a credit card in the name of the County.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that all department heads shall review existing accounts and credit cards and report that information to the County Clerk's office such that all accounts and credit cards are properly accounted for.
Mr. Buchanan moved that Resolution No. 99-02 be adopted. Seconded and carried.

WHEREAS, the public should be aware of the services performed by Jefferson County employees, and

WHEREAS, an objection to marking vehicles as being part of a particular department has been considered by the Committee,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the County Administrator shall arrange for the production of standardized decals incorporating the Jefferson County seal, which shall be displayed on each side of all currently unmarked and new County vehicles except those vehicles used for law enforcement purposes which shall be exempt herefrom at the discretion of the Sheriff.
Mr. Buchanan moved that Resolution No. 99-03 be adopted. Seconded and carried.
Mr. Kisow read the following report:
Jefferson County Fiber Installation
Consultant Summary Analysis
The following information is a collection of statements and recommendations gathered from several studies concerning the Jefferson County data network. The consultants providing this information were contracted from IKON Office solutions and Amelia Systems, Inc. The main focus of the project was to look at information resources, including data, voice, and video being transferred between the County Courthouse, Highway Department, ICC Data Processing, Human Services/ Health Department, Countryside Home and the new Workforce Development Building.
The limited network speed between sites at Jefferson County and ICC is a serious issue that causes ICC and Jefferson County to incur additional costs and reduces operational efficiency on a regular basis. This situation has developed as use of the network has increased and now needs to be addressed by increasing the speed to better support existing and new applications.
To create an efficient network design, ASI recommends the installation of single-mode fiber-optic cable between buildings to solve the speed issue. Installing twenty-four strands to each facility will accommodate a 300% growth, and will provide an insurance blanket for future County data transmission growth and technology changes.
Installation will allow for the support of a single high-speed data, voice and video network as well as the use of Internet and associated E-mail services. Consolidation of resources such as data servers, video matrix equipment and telephone equipment will result in increased network control and security.

WHEREAS, the Wisconsin Land Information Program currently enables counties to apply for grant funds through the Wisconsin Land Information Board to fund improvements without relying fully on the property tax levy, and

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED the County of Jefferson would support the Land Information Board portion of the budget bill if the Wisconsin Land Information Board retained its authority to allocate and supervise program funds for the statewide soils initiative and retained the funds under Land Information Board's control which would otherwise be used for a statewide land information system.
Mrs. Groskopf moved that Resolution No. 99-15 be adopted. Seconded and carried.
Mrs. Groskopf read Report No. 1 of the Zoning Committee.
TO THE HONORABLE MEMBERS OF THE JEFFERSON COUNTY BOARD OF SUPERVISORS
The Jefferson County Planning and Zoning Committee having considered petitions to amend the Zoning Ordinance of Jefferson County, filed for public hearing February 18 and March 18, 1999 as required by law pursuant to Wisconsin Statutes, notice thereof having been given, and being duly advised of the wishes of the town boards and persons in the areas affected, hereby makes the following recommendations:
APPROVAL OF PETITIONS 2063A-99, 2064A-99,
2065A-99, 2066A-99 AND 2067A-99
AND TEXT AMENDMENTS
ZONING ORDINANCE AMENDMENT REGULATING
The Zoning Ordinance previously dealt with telecommunications facilities in a very generic fashion. Congress enacted the Telecommunications Act of 1996 to promote expansion of the telecommunication industry. Local zoning is recognized by the federal law, but cannot unreasonably interfere with or delay expansion of the industry. Supervisor Nass introduced a proposed amendment to establish standards within the Zoning Ordinance. That proposed amendment has been reviewed by the Zoning Committee and a working group consisting of the Committee, town board members, interested County Board supervisors, telecommunication providers and public representatives. After several drafts, the proposed ordinance went to public hearing. Following public hearing, the proposed ordinance was again amended in several respects taking into consideration the comments of the public and the providers.
A summary of the more significant standards include:
1. Maximum tower height of 200 feet and minimum one-half mile separation between towers. The 200-foot height recognizes the Committee's goal of maximum colocation of telecommunication providers on a single tower. It is anticipated, with current technology, that a 200-foot tower will generally be able to carry at least four separate providers, which should minimize the number of towers necessary. A conditional use permit is required to site a tower.
2. Telecommunications antennas attached to existing buildings, silos, utility poles or other existing structures may be placed without the necessity of a conditional use permit. The Committee felt the lower level of regulation would be an incentive for providers to seek out existing structures rather than request creation of a tower site.
3. Towers are generally prohibited in residential zones, shoreland, floodplain areas and wetlands.
4. A party requesting a new tower must provide at least three technically feasible alternatives. The Committee may, at the applicant's expense, hire an engineer or other expert to assist it in determining the accuracy of an applicant's representations with regard to the technical aspects of the proposal and its proposed location.
5. All tower owners and operators are required to report changes in ownership or occupancy of towers, such that the Zoning Department may steer a company otherwise seeking to build a tower to an available colocation site.
6. The Ordinance contains provisions for removal of towers that have been abandoned. A new tower operator must post a bond sufficient to cover the expense of removal should the tower be abandoned at a later date.
After the public hearing on this matter, 15 of the 16 townships favored the proposed ordinance amendment. Adjustments to the text since that time have been made for the purpose of clarifying various areas, but have not changed the substance of the proposal heard at public hearing. The Committee requests approval of the ordinance amendment as proposed.
A-1 ZONE USE MODIFICATION
The Ordinance amendment as originally proposed by Supervisor Lehmann to eliminate residences and duplexes in the A-1 zone as a permitted use received an extensive public hearing. Township comments regarding the original proposal were 11 against and 5 in favor.
After consideration of the public comments and the townships' opinions, the original proposal has been modified to address issues raised by the hearing process. The proposal as it is before you now would allow reconstruction of a home currently in an A-1 zone if it were significantly damaged or destroyed. The original proposal would not have permitted reconstruction if the residence were damaged beyond 50 percent of its fair market value.
The modified proposal also allows for a single-family residence or a duplex as a conditional use in the A-1 zone as long as it is not located on prime soils. The conditional use process would allow the Committee to locate a home authorized in the A-1 zone in a fashion to minimize its impact on agricultural use of the balance of the property.
Finally, the modified proposal would allow a residence as a conditional use on substandard A-1 parcels created as a result of rezoning. The modified proposal before you thus allows for existing residences in the A-1 district to be rebuilt if significantly damaged and for new residences to be sited on non-prime soils as a conditional use in either the A-1 zone or on a substandard A-1 parcel.
Because the original proposal has been modified after the hearing process, should the County Board pass the modified version, the townships may, within 40 days of passage, file with the County Clerk certified copies of resolutions approving or disapproving the amendment. If a majority file resolutions disapproving the amendment, then it does not take effect. If a majority do not file disapprovals, the amendment is effective Countywide.
Dated this Ninth day of April, 1999
Kathleen Groskopf, Secretary
Mrs. Groskopf moved that the report be accepted and printed in the minutes. Seconded and carried.

3. W, Waterfront
4. S, Shoreland
5. N, Natural Resource
All maps except NEPA maps identifying the prohibitive areas are located within the Zoning Department and are available for public review and inspection.
(7) Conditional Use Application. Amendment of a prior conditional use permit or locating and constructing a telecommunications facility, including the telecommunications support facility or other supporting equipment used in connection with said telecommunications support facility shall require a conditional use permit. [Location of a colocator's telecommunications support facility may require a land use permit as set forth in subsections (3) and (14).] The Zoning and Planning Committee may issue a conditional use permit after review and a public hearing, provided that such conditional use is in accordance with the purpose and intent of this Ordinance.
(a) Submittal Information. For all telecommunications facilities, except exempt facilities as defined in subsection (3), the Zoning Department shall require the following information to accompany every application. Said information shall include, but may not be limited to:
1. Completed conditional use application and conditional use fee.
2. Original signature of applicant and owner (if the telecommunication facility is located in an easement, the beneficiaries of the easement and underlying property owner must authorize the application),
3. The identity of the carrier, provider, applicant, landowner and service provider and their legal status,
4. The name, address and telephone number of the officer, agent and/or employee responsible for the accuracy of the application,
5. A plat of survey, showing the parcel boundaries, tower, facilities, location, access, landscaping and fencing,
6. A written legal description of the site,
7. In the case of a leased site, a lease agreement, option or binding lease memorandum which shows on its face that it does not preclude the lessee from entering into leases on the site with other provider(s) and the legal description and amount of property leased. The lease shall not be structured so as to create a bar to colocation of other providers. Colocation lease terms, including rent, shall be subject to arbitration, as set forth elsewhere herein, in the event the parties are unable to reach agreement on the issue of rent or other terms.
8. A description of the telecommunications service that the applicant offers or provides, to persons, firms, businesses or institutions,
9. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) license numbers and registration numbers, if applicable,
10. Copies of Finding of No Significant Impacts (FONSI) statement from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) or Environmental Impact Study (EIS), if applicable,
11. An alternatives analysis shall be prepared by the actual applicant or on behalf of the applicant by its designated technical representative, except for exempt facilities as defined in subsection (3), subject to the review and approval of the Zoning and Planning Committee, which identifies at least three sites, technically feasible alternative locations and/or facilities which could provide the proposed telecommunication service. The intention of the alternative analysis is to present alternative strategies which could minimize the number, size, and adverse environmental impacts of facilities necessary to provide the needed services to the County. The analysis shall address the potential for colocation and the potential to locate facilities as close as possible to the intended service area. It shall also explain the rationale for selection of the proposed site in view of the relative merits of any of the feasible alternatives. Approval of the project is subject to the determination of the Zoning and Planning Committee that the site applied for is more advantageous than any available, feasible alternative site. Sites on prime agricultural land or County-approved environmental corridors shall be located to have least negative impact on agricultural use or the environmental corridor. The County may require independent verification of this analysis at the applicant's expense.
12. Plans indicating security measures (i.e. access, fencing, lighting, etc.),
13. Shall include a tabular and map inventory of all of the applicant's existing telecommunications facilities that are located within Jefferson County and including all of the existing facilities within fifteen hundred (1500) feet of the County boundary. The inventory shall specify the location, height, type, and design of each of the applicant's existing telecommunication facilities, and the ability of the tower or antenna structure to accommodate additional colocation antennas,
14. A report prepared by an engineer licensed by the State of Wisconsin certifying the structural design of the tower and its ability to accommodate additional antennas,
15. Proof of liability coverage,
16. Certified statement from an RF engineer showing the coverage of the proposed facility,
17. Copies of an Affidavit of Notification indicating that the airport operator and airport property owners, with the areas limiting telecommunication facility locations as identified under subsection (5), if applicable, have been notified via certified mail, and
18. Such other information as the Zoning and Planning Committee may reasonably require to complete processing the application.
(b) Colocation. All telecommunications facilities issued a conditional use permit on or after the effective date of this section and any telecommunication facility previously issued a conditional use permit requiring colocation sites shall make available unused space for colocation of other telecommunication facilities, including space for those entities providing similar, competing services. Colocation is not required if the host facility can demonstrate that the addition of the new service or facilities would impair existing service or cause the host to go offline for a significant period of time, such as would be occasioned by requiring a replacement tower or reconstruction of an existing tower to facilitate colocation. In general, it is anticipated that colocation will not result in any disruption of service. All colocated and multiple-user telecommunication facilities shall be designed to promote site sharing. Telecommunication towers and necessary appurtenances, including but not limited to parking areas, access roads, utilities shall be shared by the site users whenever possible. Space shall be reasonably available to colocators. In the event the parties are unable to reach agreement on the issue of rent, the parties shall arbitrate the dispute. Each party shall pick a representative for the arbitration panel. The two persons selected shall select a third person. The three persons chosen shall arbitrate the dispute. The parties shall split the costs of arbitration equally. The permittee shall make this arbitration provision known to any party with whom it is unable to reach agreement for colocation. The arbitrator shall consider prevailing market rates in the region, contractual provisions which are standard in the industry, or master colocation agreements on the issue subject arbitration. The arbitration provisions hereof shall be applicable to both the landowner and the telecommunications facility owner or operator when negotiating with a prospective colocator and shall be deemed a condition of any conditional use permit issued hereafter whether or not specifically set forth in said permit. Any party seeking arbitration may request arbitration from the appropriate other party after expiration of 90 days from commencement of negotiations. Arbitration shall be promptly completed. Failure to engage in arbitration as required hereunder shall constitute a violation of this section.
(c) Technical Review. The Zoning Department, upon direction of the Jefferson County Zoning and Planning Committee, shall employ on behalf of the County an independent technical expert to review materials submitted in those cases where a technical demonstration of unavoidable need or unavailability of alternatives has been determined necessary by the Committee. Applicant may provide a list of experts to the Committee. The Committee shall not be bound to employ one of the named experts. The applicant shall pay all the costs of said review. The payment to the Zoning Department shall be due upon receipt of the invoice. All invoices, fees and charges accumulated for the technical review must be paid in full prior to the issuance of the conditional use permit.
(d) Submittals Required Following the Conditional Use Approval. For each conditional use permit approved by the Jefferson County Zoning and Planning Committee the applicant shall submit the following before the conditional use permit will be issued:
1. Copies of the determination of no hazard from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) including any aeronautical study determination or other findings and the Wisconsin State Bureau of Aeronautics, if applicable.
2. Copies of any Environmental Assessment (EA) reports on Form 600 or Form 854 submitted to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), if applicable.
3. Copies of any filings relating to any telecommunications facility located in the County submitted to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) shall be submitted within 30 days of filing.
4. Application for County land use permit and applicable fee.
(8) Information Report. The purpose of the report under this subsection is to provide the County with accurate and current information concerning the telecommunications facility owners and providers who offer or provide telecommunications services within the County, or that own or operate telecommunications facilities within the County, to assist the County in enforcement of this subsection, and to assist the County in monitoring compliance with local, state and federal laws.
(a) Information Report. All telecommunications tower owners of any new telecommunications tower shall submit to the Planning and Zoning Department a Telecommunications Facility Information Report (the "Report") within 45 days: (1) following conditional use approval; (2) of receipt of a written request from the Jefferson County Department of Planning and Zoning; and (3) of any change in occupancy of the tower. The Report shall include the tower owner name(s), address(es), phone number(s), contact person(s), and proof of bond as security for removal. The tower owner shall supply the tower height or current occupancy, if applicable, the number of colocation positions designated, occupied or vacant. This information shall be submitted on the County form provided and designated for such use, and shall become evidence of compliance.
(b) Information Report Fee. Following the conditional use approval and with the initial filing of the Report, the tower owner shall submit to the Planning and Zoning Department a one time fee of $200 per tower site. The fee submittal is the responsibility of each tower owner. Failure to provide this information as required above may result in a civil forfeiture for each day elapsing until the information is received by the Jefferson County Department of Planning and Zoning.
(9) Removal/Security for Removal.
(a) It is the express policy of Jefferson County and this ordinance that telecommunications towers be removed once they are no longer in use and not a functional part of providing telecommunications service and that it is the telecommunications provider's responsibility to remove such telecommunications tower and restore the site to its original condition or a condition approved by the Jefferson County Zoning Department. This restoration shall include removal of any subsurface structure or foundation, including concrete, used to support the telecommunications tower down to 5 feet below the surface. After a telecommunications tower is no longer in operation, the provider shall have 180 days to effect removal and restoration unless weather prohibits such efforts. Permittee shall record a document with the Jefferson County Register of Deeds showing the existence of any subsurface structure remaining below grade. Such recording shall accurately set forth the location and describe the remaining structure.
(b) Security for Removal. The owner of any telecommunications tower shall provide to Jefferson County, prior to the issuance of the conditional use permit or the issuance of a zoning permit, a performance bond in an amount based on a written estimate of a qualified remover of said types of structures, or Twenty Thousand Dollars ($20,000), whichever is less, to guarantee that the telecommunications tower will be removed when no longer in operation. Jefferson County will be named as obligee in the bond and must approve the bonding company. The County may require an increase in the bond amount after five (5) year intervals to reflect increases in the Consumer Price Index. The provider shall supply any increased bond within a reasonable time, not exceeding sixty (60) days, after the County's request. A permittee may submit a letter of credit in the amount set forth above, or, in the alternative, a permittee with several sites in the County may submit a master bond to cover all of said sites. A master bond or a letter of credit may, in the Committee's discretion, be in an amount sufficient to secure removal from one site if the master bond or letter of credit provides for replenishing any amount used as the master bond or letter of credit covers any other site in the County.
(10) Preexisting Telecommunication Towers and Antennas.
(a) Nonconforming and conforming telecommunication towers, antennae and facilities may add, move or replace antennas, the tower and support facilities upon issuance of a land use permit. An existing telecommunication tower may be relocated or reconstructed within fifty (50) feet of its existing location to accommodate colocation subject to meeting all other sections of this Ordinance except subsection (7). Routine maintenance and repair on telecommunications facilities is permitted. See subsection (14)(2).
(b) Existing Use Review.
1. Existing Use Review for Those Towers Structurally Capable to Colocate -
Beginning July 31, 1999, within 45 days: (1) of receipt of a written request from the Jefferson County Department of Planning and Zoning; or (2) of any change in ownership or occupancy of the tower, all telecommunications tower owners operating in Jefferson County prior to the adoption of this section shall provide the information required under subsection (8) (except proof of bond and proof of insurance), of this section. By July 31, 1999 such owners shall pay a one time fee of $200 per tower site. Failure to provide this information as required above may result in a civil forfeiture for each day elapsing until the information is received by the Jefferson County Department of Planning and Zoning.
2. Existing Use Review for Those Towers Structurally Incapable for Colocation -
By July 31, 1999, within 45 days: (1) of receipt of a written request from the Jefferson County Department of Planning and Zoning; or (2) of any change in ownership or occupancy of the tower, all telecommunications tower owners operating in Jefferson County prior to the adoption of this section shall provide the information required under subsection (8) (except proof of bond and proof of insurance), and submit documents that the tower is structurally incapable of colocation. By July 31, 1999 such owners shall pay a one time fee of $200 per tower site. Failure to provide this information as required above may result in a civil forfeiture for each day elapsing until the information is received by the Jefferson County Department of Planning and Zoning.
(a) Revocation. Grounds for revocation of the conditional use permit shall be limited to one of the following findings:
1. The owner of such site, service provider and/or tower owner fails to comply with the requirements of this Ordinance as it existed at the time of the issuance of the conditional use permit;
2. The permittee has failed to comply with the conditions imposed by the conditional use permit.
(b) Revocation Process.
1. The owner of such site, service provider and/or tower owner shall be notified by certified mail of noncompliance by the Jefferson County Zoning Department.
2. The owner shall comply with such notice within 30 days to the satisfaction of the Jefferson County Zoning Department.
3. If compliance is not obtained within 30 days, the Jefferson County Zoning Department shall notify the Jefferson County Zoning and Planning Committee of the noncompliance and request permission to proceed with the revocation process. (This time period may be extended by the Zoning Committee to adjust for seasonal limitations or other legitimate factors.)
4. The Jefferson County Zoning Department shall petition the Jefferson County Board for a public hearing before the Jefferson County Zoning Committee following publication of a Class 2 notice in the legal newspaper of Jefferson County.
5. A copy of a hearing notice shall be mailed certified to the owner of record of the telecommunications facility at least two weeks prior to the hearing date.
6. An officer of the Jefferson County Zoning Department shall appear at the hearing before the Jefferson County Zoning and Planning Committee to present the evidence of noncompliance. All other interested parties may also give testimony to the Committee.
7. In compliance with the procedures of a conditional use hearing, a written decision of the Jefferson County Zoning and Planning Committee will be made.
(c) Abandonment. Any antenna or telecommunication tower that is not operated for a continuous period of twelve (12) months shall be considered abandoned. Upon application, the Committee may extend the time limit to abandon once for an additional twelve-month period. Such extension shall be based on the finding that the owner or permit holder is actively seeking tenants for the site. After the expiration of the time periods established above, the following shall apply:
1. The owner of such antenna or telecommunication tower shall remove said antenna or telecommunication tower including all supporting equipment, building(s) and foundations to the depth as otherwise herein required within ninety (90) days of receipt of notice from the Zoning Department notifying the owner of such abandonment. If removal to the satisfaction of the Zoning Department does not occur within said ninety (90) days, the Jefferson County Zoning Administrator may order removal utilizing the established bond as provided under subsection (9) and salvage said antenna or tower and all supporting equipment and building(s). If there are two or more users of a single tower, then this provision shall not become effective until all operations of the tower cease.
2. The recipient of a conditional use permit allowing a telecommunications tower under this section, or the current owner or operator, shall notify the Jefferson County Zoning Department within 45 days of the date when the telecommunication tower is no longer in operation.
(12) Structural, Design and Environmental Standards.
(a) Tower, Antenna and Facilities Requirements. All telecommunications facilities, except exempt facilities as defined in subsection (3), shall be designed to reduce the negative impact on the surrounding environment by implementing the measures set forth below:
1. All telecommunication facilities shall comply at all times with all Federal Communications Commission (FCC) rules, regulations, and standards. To that end no telecommunication facility or combinations of facilities shall produce at any time power densities in any inhabited area that exceed the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) adopted standard for human exposure, as amended, or any more restrictive standard subsequently adopted or promulgated by the Federal government. All telecommunication tower and antenna shall meet or exceed the standards and regulations, in place at the time of the issuance of the conditional use permit, of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the Wisconsin State Bureau of Aeronautics, Occupational Safety and Hazard Association (OSHA), the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and any other agency of the State and/or Federal government with the authority to regulate towers and antennas. Determinations by the State or Federal agencies responsible for enforcing the regulations set forth above shall be binding on the applicant and County.
2. Telecommunication towers shall be constructed of metal or other nonflammable material, unless specifically permitted by the County to be otherwise,
3. All ground mounted telecommunications towers shall be self-supporting monopoles or lattice towers except where satisfactory evidence is submitted to the Zoning and Planning Committee that a guyed tower is required,
4. Satellite dish and parabolic antennas shall be situated as close to the ground as possible to reduce visual impact without compromising their functions,
5. Telecommunication support facilities (i.e., equipment rooms, utilities, and equipment enclosures) shall be constructed of nonreflective materials (visible exterior surfaces only). Telecommunication support facilities shall be no taller than fifteen feet (15') in height, measured from the original grade at the base of the facility to the top of the structure, and shall be designed to blend with existing architecture in the area or shall be screened from sight by mature landscaping as required in subsection (12)(e)1., and shall be located or designed to minimize their visibility. Telecommunication support facilities for all tower users at one telecommunications facility shall not exceed a total of 1,000 square feet of floor area.
6. Telecommunications facilities and antennas shall be designed and constructed in accordance with the State of Wisconsin Uniform Building Code, National Electrical Code, Uniform Plumbing Code, Uniform Mechanical Code, and Uniform Fire Code, Jefferson County Subdivision Ordinance, Jefferson County Sanitation Ordinance, Electronic Industries Association (EIA), American National Steel Institute Standards (ANSI), American National Standards Institute (ANSI), and Electronic Industry Assoc/Telecommunication Industry Association (EITTFTIA) 222-E.3., in effect at the time of manufacture. The owner of a telecommunications facility or antenna shall submit to the Planning and Zoning Department a statement of compliance with the codes set forth herein.
7. The maximum height of an antenna platform located on a roof top shall be twenty (20) feet above the roof,
8. Telecommunication facilities shall not interfere with or obstruct existing or proposed public safety, fire protection or Supervisory Controlled Automated Data Acquisition (SCADA) operation telecommunication facilities. Any actual interference and/or obstruction shall be corrected by the applicant at no cost to the County.
(b) Height. The height of a telecommunication tower shall be measured from the original grade at the base of said tower to the highest part of the tower itself. In the case of building mounted towers the height of the tower includes the height of the portion of the building on which it is mounted. In the case of "crankup" or other similar towers whose height can be adjusted, the height of the tower shall be the maximum height to which it is capable of being raised.
Towers shall be permitted to a maximum height of 200 feet, not including antennas. Unless permitted by the Committee after review, towers shall be constructed so as to accommodate a minimum of three colocation sites. Colocation sites need not be available on the tower as initially placed or constructed, provided that the tower will support at the specified maximum height later addition of at least three colocation sites. Notwithstanding the height and number of colocation sites on the tower as initially placed or constructed, the tower design approved and permitted shall be for a tower capable of extension to 200 feet in height, including the required colocation sites. The Committee may vary the above requirements if use of a monopole is a condition of the permit.
(c) Lighting. Telecommunications towers shall be lighted in accordance with rules of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) or other applicable regulatory authority. The Committee may require lighting of towers in areas subject to localized air traffic concerns such as crop dusting.
(d) Site Development, Roads and Parking. A leased parcel intended for the location of new telecommunications facilities and telecommunication support facilities shall be located so as to permit expansion for telecommunication support facilities to serve all potential colocators. A parcel owned by the telecommunications carrier and/or provider and intended for the location of new telecommunication facilities and telecommunications support facilities shall meet the minimum size requirement of the zoning district. All sites must be served by an easement sufficient to provide a turnaround and shall use existing access points and roads whenever possible. The access point to the site shall be approved by the Jefferson County Highway Department, State of Wisconsin Department of Transportation, or the applicable township depending on road jurisdiction.
(e) Vegetation Protection and Facility Screening:
1. Except exempt facilities as defined in subsection (3), all telecommunications facilities shall be installed in such a manner so as to minimize disturbance to existing native vegetation and shall include suitable mature landscaping to screen the facility, where necessary. For purposes of this section, "mature landscaping" shall mean trees, shrubs or other vegetation of a minimum initial height of five (5) feet that will provide the appropriate level of visual screening immediately upon installation.
2. Upon project completion, the owner(s)/operator(s) of the facility shall be responsible for maintenance and replacement of all required landscaping as long as a telecommunication facility is maintained on the site.
(f) Fire Prevention. All telecommunication facilities shall be designed and operated in accordance with all applicable codes regarding fire prevention.
(g) Noise and Traffic. All telecommunication facilities shall be constructed and operated in such a manner as to minimize the amount of disruption caused to nearby properties. To that end all the following measures shall be implemented for all telecommunication facilities, except exempt facilities as defined in subsection (3):
1. Noise producing construction activities shall take place only on weekdays (Monday through Saturday, non-holiday) between the hours of 6:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m., except in times of emergency repair, and
2. Backup generators shall be operated only during power outages and for testing and maintenance purposes.
(13) Separation and Setback Requirements (except exempt facilities as defined in subsection (3).
(a) Minimum Separation Between Telecommunication Towers (by tower type).
Proposed tower types: Lattice Guyed Guyed Monopole 85 ft
in height or greater
Lattice 2,640 ft. 2,640 ft. 2,640 ft.
Guyed 2,640 ft. 2,640 ft. 2,640 ft.
Monopole 85 ft.
in height or greater 2,640 ft. 2,640 ft. 2,640 ft.
1. Notwithstanding the above separations, two (2) telecommunications towers may be permitted to be located within 100 feet of each other subject to conditional use review and approval of the Jefferson County Zoning and Planning Committee and subject to meeting the setback requirements.
2. Camouflaged towers are exempt from the separation between telecommunications towers requirement listed above.
(b) Setbacks. All setbacks shall be measured from the base of the tower or structure. Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Ordinance, the following minimum setbacks shall apply unless a greater distance is established by the Zoning Committee in a conditional use permit:
1. Setbacks from all habitable residential buildings, except buildings located on the subject parcel. All new towers shall be set back a distance at least 125% of the height of the tower.
2. Setbacks from all historic sites and districts. All new towers shall be set back a distance at least 125% of the height of the tower from historic sites and districts.
3. Set back from the road right of ways of all streets. All new towers shall be set back from all streets a minimum as defined in the Jefferson County Zoning Ordinance. Notwithstanding other provisions of the Zoning Ordinance, a tower shall be set back from all traveled portions of a street or highway a distance not less than its height, unless an engineer has provided a certified opinion that the mode of failure designed for said structure allows placement as close as one-half the height of the tower from the traveled portion of said street or highway.
4. Setbacks from property lines. All new towers shall be set back a minimum of fifty (50) feet from all property lines. (This requirement does not apply to the boundary of the leased parcel unless the leased parcel boundary is also a property line.)
5. Guy Wire Anchor Setback. All guy wire anchors shall be at least twenty-five (25) feet from all property lines.
6. So as to minimize the potential diminution of property value of neighboring properties, and recognize the economic value of a tower lease to the host property, telecommunications towers shall not be placed closer to a residence existing on April 20, 1999 on neighboring properties than the distance of the tower from the residence or principal structure on the host property. In the event the proposed tower is more than 1/4 mile from such existing residence on a neighboring property, the Committee may, in its discretion, waive the applicability of this paragraph.
7. The Committee may approve setbacks in an Industrial zone less than set forth above, except no such reduction may be allowed in a setback from a habitable residential building.
(14) Permits. A Jefferson County zoning permit is required from the Zoning Department for the location of all telecommunication facilities, except exempt facilities as defined in subsection (3) which do not specify the requirement of a land use permit. The applicant shall submit such information referred to under subsection (7)(a) as may be required by the Zoning Administrator, except the conditional use application and fee. Telecommunications facilities proposed to be colocated on facilities previously approved under this Ordinance shall be exempt from submitting information required under subsection (7)(a), but shall be required to submit a zoning permit application for review and approval if the telecommunications support facility exceeds 100 square feet in area.
(a) Permitted Uses:
1. Locating/installing an antenna that adds no more than fifty (50) feet to the height of an alternative support structure, including placement of additional buildings or other supporting equipment used in connection with said antenna subject to meeting all other sections of this Ordinance except subsection (7) shall require a land use permit.
2. A telecommunication tower which is being relocated or reconstructed to accommodate colocation may be relocated within fifty (50) feet of its existing location, with the review and approval of a zoning permit from the Zoning Department and shall be subject to meeting other sections of this Ordinance except subsection (7) and subject to meeting Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)/State Bureau of Aeronautics requirements. Routine maintenance and repair on telecommunications facilities is permitted.
Section 3. This ordinance shall be published in the manner and form required by the Wisconsin Statutes and shall be effective on the date of publication.
