PUBLIC HEARING ON 2000 STREET IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM.
President Day announced the opening of the public hearing on the 2000 Street Improvement Program. He stated that any citizen wishing to speak on this matter should come forward to the podium and state their name and address for the record.
Mr. Ken Pattow, 906 East Street, addressed the Council. Mr. Pattow stated that he was glad to see the needed street work being done by the City, however, he feels that the total cost of street improvement should be on the City tax roll and paid by everyone that lives in the City instead of part of the street work being charged to the homeowner. Mr. Pattow also stated that he did not believe that there needed to be sidewalk on both sides of the street since there is not that much foot traffic on East Street. Mr. Pattow further stated that he did not believe sidewalks should be laid on the south end of the proposed project on the west side of East Street indicating the parcel numbers of the empty lots in that area. He stated that the landscaping and the trees should not be disturbed.
Mr. Jim Baird, 916 East Street, addressed the City Council. Mr. Baird stated that he concurs with everything that Mr. Pattow said. Mr. Baird stated that he would be glad to have sidewalks on his side of the street but there is no need for sidewalk on both sides.
Mrs. Martha Ajango, 825 East Street, then addressed the City Council. Mrs. Ajango stated that she and her husband had put a lot of effort into making their lots look good and a sidewalk through their lots would disturb the plantings.
Mr. Helmut Ajango, 825 East Street, then stepped forward to address the City Council. Mr. Ajango stated that he does believe that infilling of missing sidewalks should be done in the City of Fort Atkinson but questions who should pay for that work. He proposed that the City declare all sidewalks to be grandfathered in as of a certain date and that the City should pay for all infilling. Mr. Ajango further stated that if that proposal was too expensive for the City, he would suggest a backup proposal of the City paying half and the homeowner paying half for the sidewalk to be installed with a maximum of $2,000 to be charged to the owner. Mr. Ajango stated that he felt there were probably many people that could not afford the current charges.
Mr. Curtis Abendroth, 1000 North Main, addressed the Council to state that he believes that all street work should be totally on the City tax roll and not have special assessment due to the fact that a special assessment is not necessarily tax deductible to the property owner. Mr. Abendroth further stated that he does believe in having sidewalks however, does agree that they are only needed on one side of East Street.
Ms. Harriet Scherer, 117 West Milwaukee Avenue then came forward to the podium to address the Council. She stated that her questions were on behalf of herself and the residents of 121 West Milwaukee, 123 and 123-1/2 West Milwaukee. Ms. Scherer asked for a clarification of what type of street work was to be done on her street, when it would occur and how long a span of time would go by before the residents could get in and out of their driveways again. City Engineer Woods explained the project to Ms. Scherer.
Ms. Barb Koele of 417 East Street, addressed the Council next. Mrs. Koele stated that she does believe East Street needs the sidewalks filled in. She stated that she does like to walk and has almost been hit by cars in the past when she has had to walk in the street.
Mrs. Barb Meyer, 1104 Mohawk Court, addressed the Council. She stated that she also believes that the charges for street work should be entirely on the tax roll and paid by all citizens. Mrs. Meyer also inquired on how the charges are determined when your home is on a corner lot and the City Engineer replied.
Hearing from no one else, President Day closed the public hearing on the 2000 Street Improvement Program.
PETITIONS, REQUESTS AND COMMUNICATIONS
REVIEW OF CITY OF FORT ATKINSON FINANCIAL STATEMENTS AND REPORT ON INTERNAL CONTROLS FOR YEAR ENDING DECEMBER 31, 1999.
City Manager Wilmet introduced Ms. Julie Schwingel of Virchow, Krause & Company, the City's auditing firm.
Ms. Schwingel addressed the Council and pointed out some major points to the 1999 audit. Ms. Schwingel stated that once again this year the independent auditors report will be giving the City of Fort Atkinson a clean opinion, which is the best opinion of financial record keeping that an auditing firm can hand out. Ms. Schwingel went on to point out the general fund balance for the City of Fort Atkinson was $1,305,000 in 1999 as compared to $1,377,000 in 1998. She further stated that the undesignated amount of funding is at $855,441 or 13% of the next year's budget. Ms. Schwingel stated that they believe that an amount between 12-20% of a community's next year's budget is a proper amount of undesignated funds to have available. Ms. Schwingel also pointed out the ending balance in 1999 of our general obligation debt. She stated that the City is now at 40% of its borrowing capacity which is a typical number for communities in the State of Wisconsin.
Cm. Flood, seconded by Cm. Zastrow moved to accept the City of Fort Atkinson financial statements and report on internal controls for the year ending December 31, 1999. The motion carried on a voice vote.
CONSIDERATION OF OFFER TO PURCHASE CITY OWNED VACANT LAND ON WHITEWATER AVENUE BETWEEN 1104 AND 1120 WHITEWATER AVENUE.
City Manager Wilmet stated that Habitat for Humanity has come forward with a vacant land offer to purchase of Lot 17 Pine Meadows Subdivision which is the vacant lot between 1104 and 1120 Whitewater Avenue that is owned by the City. He stated that they are offering $16,000 for the property.
The City Manager did review the five year history with the City Council stating that it had been determined in 1995 that the City had no use for this property and made it available for sale for $16,000 at that time. However, no buyer came forward and the property has remained vacant to today.
Cm. Johnston, seconded by Cm. Gray moved to accept the vacant land offer to purchase in the amount of $16,000 from Habitat for Humanity contingent upon the permitting/plan review and the use of licensed plumbers and electricians when their home is built. The motion further states that the proper City officials are authorized to sign the offer to purchase. On call of the roll the motion was carried unanimously.

Cm. Zastrow stated that he did not believe that it was necessary for the east side of East Street to have sidewalk.
Cm. Gray, seconded by Cm. Johnston moved to adopt Resolution 989 without the east side of East Street having the installation of new sidewalk. Therefore, paragraph E of the resolution stating the installation of new sidewalk on East Street by the following parcels would now only include Leslie Beavers, 434 McComb Street, Emily Hipchen at 431 Converse Street, and Jason Brawders at 922 East Street.

Museum Director Sue Hartwick was present for this portion of the meeting. Mrs. Hartwick stated that in August, 1999 an estimate was done on needed roof repairs for the Museum. The estimate had been $21,000. Therefore, the amount of funds requested in the year 2000 budget for the roof repair was set at $21,000. However, now bids were let by the Historical Society's Facilities Committee and the lowest bidder for the project is Maly Roofing at $28,543. Therefore, the Fort Atkinson Historical Society is requesting the City Council release an additional $8,000 from the City's portion of the Hoard Trust to allow completion of the roof project.
Cm. Johnston, seconded by Cm. Flood moved to release $8,000 of additional funds from the Hoard Trust to complete the roof project to be done by Maly Roofing of Madison in an amount not to exceed $28,543. On call of the roll, the motion carried unanimously.
City Manager Wilmet reviewed the three-party contract for the design of the street and storm sewer on North High Street with the Council. This contract is between Earth Tech, the Dept. of Transportation and the City and covers the design of North High Street from North Third Street to County Highway K.
The City Manager explained that the total contract for the work is in an amount not to exceed $238,761. This project will be designed and constructed using Federal STP Urban Program funding, with the City being responsible for 20% of the cost. The City Manager explained that our cost for the design would be about $48,000 and have to be budgeted in the years 2000 and 2001.
Cm. Gray, seconded by Cm. Flood moved to approve the three-party contract with the Dept. of Transportation and Earth Tech, Inc. for an amount not to exceed $238,761 and authorize the appropriate City officials to sign it. On call of the roll the motion carried unanimously.
City Manager Wilmet explained that in conjunction with the reconstruction of North
High Street the sanitary sewer and water mains are scheduled to be replaced and reviewed the contract for the design work with Earth Tech, Inc. The City Manager explained that in addition to the replacement on North High Street, water main will also be installed on portions of Ralph Street, Hake Street and East Blackhawk Drive to increase water flows in those area.
The City Manager further explained that the cost for this design was estimated to be $78,000 and therefore Earth Tech's contract in the amount of $55,600 is well within the anticipated amount.
Cm. Zastrow, seconded by Cm. Johnston moved to approve the design contract with Earth Tech, Inc. in an amount not to exceed $55,600 and authorize the appropriate City officials to sign it. On call of the roll the motion carried unanimously.
City Manager Wilmet stated that six bids were submitted to Fire Chief Emrick for architectural services. The Chief is requesting the approval of Design Alliance for the project. After a short review and discussion with Fire Chief Emrick, Cm. Johnston, seconded by Cm. Flood moved to approve the contract for architectural services from Design Alliance in amount not to exceed $24,000 and authorize the appropriate City officials to sign the contract. On call of the roll the motion carried unanimously.
Tourism Manager Carrie Chisholm from the Fort Atkinson Chamber of Commerce was in attendance to answer any questions the Council may have on the banners and/or the agreement.
Cm. Johnston, seconded by Cm. Zastrow moved to approve the agreement between the City of Fort Atkinson and the Chamber of Commerce for hanging banners along Main Street and Robert Street bridge. The motion carried on a voice vote.
Public Works Superintendent Tom Kramp came forward to review the bids for the aerial truck with the Council. Superintendent Kramp stated that he would like to recommend the approval of the bids from Capital City International for the chassis and from Utility Sales & Service for the aerial lift. The total cost of the aerial lift and chassis including trade-in would be $99,187. The budgeted amount for this purchase was $100,000.
Public Works Superintendent Kramp stated that he realizes that the bid from Utility Sales & Service was not the low bid for the aerial lift however, he explained that the bid from Dueco Inc. did not meet four of the specifications requested. They were the horizontal reach of the boom over center would only be 43.5 feet and the specifica-tions asked for 46 feet, the platform capacity is only 350 lbs. and the specifications were for 400 lbs., lower boom lift-eye capacity is only 1,000 lbs. and was specified at 1,500 lbs. and finally the insulation gap on the lower boom is 20 inches and the specs were for 24 inches. Superintendent Kramp further explained that he believes the aerial lift from Utility Sales & Service is the best purchase for our budget dollar. It is a piece of equipment that the Public Works Dept. will be keeping for 20 or more years. The aerial lift is of heavy construction and is designed to have a minimum of maintenance cost for this type of equipment.
Cm. Gray, seconded by Cm. Zastrow moved to award the bid for the aerial lift truck chassis to Capital City International in an amount not to exceed $45,983 and the bid for the aerial lift to Utility Sales & Service in an amount not to exceed $53,257. On call of the roll the motion carried unanimously.

REGULAR: Mary Ann Conroy
Amanda Mae Kaplan
Motion carried on a voice vote.
