FORT ATKINSON, WISCONSIN

On call of the roll the following Council members were present:
Gordon Day, Jr.
Also present were the City Manager, City Attorney, City Clerk/Treasurer, City Engineer, and Assistant City Engineer.
APPROVAL OF MAY 1, 2000 SPECIAL COUNCIL MEETING AND MAY 2, 2000 REGULAR COUNCIL MEETING.
Cm. Gray moved to approve the minutes of the May 1, 2000 Special Council meeting and the May 2, 2000 regular Council meeting. The motion was seconded by Cm. Johnston. Motion carried on a voice vote.
At this point in the meeting, President Day stated that if there is no objection from the Council we would move no. 9(b) on the agenda forward to be discussed next, due to the need of some of the parties involved to leave for another meeting. Hearing no objections from the Council, no. 9(b) was brought forward.
REVIEW AND APPROVE DEVELOPER'S AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE CITY AND HIGH POINTE PROPERTIES AND AUTHORIZE OBTAINING QUOTATIONS ON BORROWING $1,300,000 IN T.I.F. FINANCING FOR DOWNTOWN REDEVELOPMENT.
City Manager Wilmet introduced Mr. Craig Ellsworth, Architect for High Pointe Properties, and asked him to come forward to make his presentation.
Mr. Ellsworth walked everyone through the Phase I and Phase II proposed redevelop-ment plans for the downtown riverwalk area.
Mr. Ellsworth pointed out the following Phase I redevelopment plans for High Pointe Properties:
-the renovation of Funky's
-the renovation and creation of retail office space a 87 N. Main and 91 S. Main Streets and 121 N. Main Street
-the renovation and new construction of retail and office complexes along the river and adjacent to S. Water St. East
-the rebuilding of the historic hamburger stand to service the riverwalk
-the addition to the existing CBRF housing
-the renovation of the old police station into productive office space.
Some of the potential Phase II renovation and redevelopment included an assembly hall with approximately a 400 capacity which would be a new structure built on a remnant of the old police department land, new 40-unit river front apartment building on Water St. East, possible renovation of the Super 8 motel and further retail projects. Mr. Ellsworth stated there will be ample opportunities for other developers to come into the TIF District and to redevelop other properties in the area which will therefore help the TIF District to pay for itself sooner than projected.
Mr. Ellsworth also pointed out various parking lots and access points to the projects and the fact that approximately 3,000 linear feet of river walk renovation is included in their plan.
Mr. Ellsworth concluded by stating that several of the Phase I projects are relatively small and therefore many improvements will be seen in a relatively short period of time.
Cm. Zastrow, seconded by Cm. Johnston moved to approve the Developer's Agree-ment between the City and High Pointe Properties and authorize obtaining quotations on borrowing $1,300,000 in TIF financing for downtown redevelopment.
Cm. Gray asked for clarification of how this agreement protects the City on any environmental issues.
City Attorney Rogers stated that to his knowledge there will be no development on the areas that the City knows have problems.
Cm. Gray further asked about the properties that the City has been asked to purchase from High Pointe Properties.
City Attorney Rogers explained that there could be contingencies in the offers to purchase these properties that would protect the City.
Cm. Gray, seconded by Cm. Flood moved to amend the motion to allow the City to put contingencies on the offer to purchase any properties so that the City has the ability to inspect the properties for environmental problems, and if contamination is found, the clean-up costs to the City are not to exceed that which would be covered by any possible state or federal funding and the monies allocated in the TIF budget.
Cm. Flood stated that he believed that this amendment is a good addition to the motion and will help to protect the City and the developer.
President Day called for a roll call vote on the motion to amend. On call of the roll the motion carried unanimously.
Cm. Flood stated that a major question he had regarding the Developer's Agreement was whether the City would see an equitable return for the properties that the developer was asking the City to give up. Cm. Flood stated that staff did have an appraisal done on the old police station and the vacant lot on S. Water St. East and the value totaled approximately $450,000. The developer, on the other hand, has committee to the developer of over 2,000 linear feet of river walk at a cost of $200 per linear foot, which would be a total cost of over $400,000. Therefore, Cm. Flood concluded that he is satisfied that the exchange does have an equitable benefit for the City, especially since the City will not be spending any monies on the relocation and start up costs of any businesses.
Cm. Johnston stated that he believes this to be a complex project for the downtown however, it is complex in a positive way. Cm. Johnston stated that he believes the whole community will be pleased with the results.
Cm. Zastrow stated that the City and High Pointe Properties have worked very hard on developing this agreement and he wished to commend all parties for their diligent efforts. Cm. Zastrow also stated that he believes that this project will be an outstanding one for the community.
City Manager Wilmet stated that he would like to summarize some of the important points that the City is committing to with this Developer's Agreement and they are as follows:
Would acquire six properties owned by High Pointe Properties.
Vacant stub streets of Grant Street and Edward Street.
Create parking lots on the acquired properties.
Exchange the police station property and lot and the west City owned lot on S. Water Street East.
Various street scaping and river walk work.
City Manager stated that basically the City will be spending its money on infrastructure for parking, streets, and utilities. However, parking is much needed in the downtown area to help the businesses and the City Manager stated that he believed that the 1.3 million is really a small investment to get a strong downtown.
Cm. Gray stated that he also believes hat this is a very exciting plan for the downtown.
President Day also stated that he believed that this was a good plan for the City.
Roll was then called on the motion to accept the Developer's Agreement between the City and High Pointe Properties and authorize obtaining quotations on borrowing 1.3 million dollars in TIF financing for downtown development and allowing the City to put contingencies on the offers to purchase any properties so that the city has the ability to inspect for environmental problems and if contamination is found, the clean up costs are not to exceed any possible state or federal funding and the monies allocated in the TIF budget. On call of the roll the motion carried unanimously.
5. PETITIONS, REQUESTS AND COMMUNICATIONS
PETITION FOR DIRECT ANNEXATION FOR JAMES HEDRICK AND JOHN HEDRICK.
Cm. Flood, seconded by Cm. Gray moved to refer the Petition for Direct Annexation by James & John Hedrick to the Planning Commission. The motion carried on a voice vote.
REQUEST TO REZONE VACANT LOTS ON THE EXTENSION OF HIGHLAND AVENUE FROM R-1 TO R-2.
Cm. Johnston, seconded by Cm. Zastrow moved to refer the rezoning of vacant lots on the extension of Highland Avenue from R-1 to R-2 to the Planning Commission. The motion carried on a voice vote.
COMMUNICATION AND UPDATE BY CHARTER COMMUNICATIONS ON CABLE SYSTEM AND RATE INCREASE.
Ms. Michelle McConnaughay and Mr. Ray Jahn of Charter Communications stepped forward to the podium to address the Council.
Among the topics pointed out by the Charter Communications representatives were:
-that Charter Communications now has 24 hr. a day/7 days a week customer service
-fiberoptic cable is in place throughout Ft. Atkinson since 1998
-that in 1999 Charter Communications was up and running 99.9993% of the time. Further stating that they now have a battery backup system that will take over in case of power outages for up to three hours at a time.
Among the projects coming up in the future the representatives from Charter stated that digital service will be available in the next month or two and modem services are being tested now in Janesville.
The Charter representatives also explained that a rate increase of $2.95 for Broadcast Basic and extended basic was coming in June. Other services would also be increasing. The representatives stated that the rate increase is necessary due to the fact that Charter has made a large investment in new equipment and there has been a large increase in programming costs. Also due to the 18% increase in staff to offer the 24-hour customer service.
Cm. Flood, seconded by Cm. Zastrow moved to accept and file the communication and update by Charter Communications on cable system and rate increase.
Cm. Johnston stated that Charter Communications should realize that it is important to try and maintain the pricing for its product for the citizens of Fort Atkinson.
The motion to accept and file the communication and update by Charter was passed on a voice vote.

Dated: May 16, 2000.
Pres. of the City Council
Faith A. Elford, City Clerk, CMC
City Manager Wilmet stated that this change was unanimously recommended by the Traffic Review Committee.
Cm. Gray asked if there has been any discussion on creating angle parking along the first block of West Milwaukee Avenue.
The City Engineer stated that off the top of his head he believed angle parking would be no problem physically in that area, however, he felt that the volume of traffic in the area would make angle parking a detriment for West Milwaukee Avenue. After further discussion, it was stated that perhaps the Traffic Review Committee could take up the angle parking issue and discuss it.
Cm. Flood, seconded by Cm. Johnston moved to suspend the rules and pass this ordinance thru its second and third readings. The motion carried on a voice vote.
Cm. Flood, seconded by Cm. Johnston moved to adopt Ordinance No. 561 to designate a handicap parking stall and two loading/unloading zones adjacent to First Congregational Church on Grant Street and West Milwaukee Avenue. On call of the roll the motion carried unanimously.
RECOMMENDATION FROM TRAFFIC REVIEW COMMITTEE TO PLACE TWO YIELD SIGNS ON CASWELL STREET AT NELSON STREET.
City Manager Wilmet stated that this recommendation was voted on unanimously by the Traffic Review Committee. The City Manager further stated that the original request was for stop signs in the area, however, the Traffic Review Committee believes that yield signs are all that is necessary.
After discussion Cm. Flood, seconded by Cm. Gray moved to approve the recommendation from the Traffic Review Committee to place two yield signs on Caswell Street at Nelson Street. The motion carried on a voice vote.
RECOMMENDATION FROM LICENSE COMMITTEE TO SET PUBLIC HEARING ON RENEWAL OF APPLICATIONS FOR INTOXICATING LIQUOR AND FERMENTED MALT BEVERAGE LICENSES.
Cm. Gray, seconded by Cm. Flood moved to set the public hearing on the renewal of the applications for intoxicating liquor and fermented malt beverage licenses for June 6, 2000. The motion carried on a voice vote.
RECOMMENDATION FROM THE LICENSE COMMITTEE THAT THE QUOTA REQUIREMENT FOR "CLASS A" INTOXICATING LIQUOR LICENSES REMAIN UNCHANGED.
Cm. Flood, seconded by Cm. Gray for discussion purposes moved to direct staff to create an ordinance to change the quota requirement for "Class A" intoxicating liquor licenses from one for every 2,500 population to one for every 2,000 residents.
Cm. Johnston stated that he does not believe the citizens of Fort Atkinson are looking for the creation of more licenses for the City. He stated that he has not had a single resident call him on this topic requesting an increase in the liquor licenses.
Cm. Gray stated that there are currently two licenses issued that are questionable and he doesn't believe that we need to have more licenses available at this time.
Cm. Johnston stated that he believes it is a mistake to change our laws for individuals.
President Day stated that if the Council is going to consider dropping the quota again, then perhaps the quota should be dropped entirely. However, President Day did further state that he felt that would be a detriment to the community.
Cm. Zastrow asked City Attorney Rogers the status of the "Class A" license at the Fireside.
City Attorney Rogers stated that he has talked with the Fireside and they have expressed a desire to maintain their "Class A" intoxicating liquor license. Therefore, they intend to comply with state statute and create a liquor store in a separate building from the Fireside.
Cm. Flood stated that he does not know of another law in the City that is in place to cause competition restriction of businesses. He further stated that he believes it is not fair for the Council to dictate fair trade and restrict commerce in the City.
Roll was then called on the motion to direct staff to create a new ordinance to change the quota requirement for "Class A" intoxicating liquor licenses from one for every 2,500 population to one for every 2,000 population. On call of the roll, Cm. Flood and Cm. Gray voted aye; Cm. Johnston, Cm. Zastrow and President Day voted no. The motion was defeated on a 3-2 vote.
DISCUSSION ON PROPOSED SIDEWALK ON NORTH HIGH STREET FOR YEAR 2000 PROJECT.
City Manager Wilmet stated that as part of the reconstruction of North High Street in 2002, it is proposed to construct sidewalk on both sides of the street from North Third Street to CTH K. Currently sidewalk exists on the east side from North Third Street to North Fourth Street and on the west side from North Third Street to East Blackhawk Drive.
The City Manager stated that there is right-of-way available on the east side to place sidewalk, but over the years the property owners have planted trees, bushes and flowers or done other landscaping in this area. These items would need to be removed to construct the sidewalk and that may not be popular with the property owners.
The City Manager stated that staff would suggest as an alternative a five or six foot sidewalk on the west side of North High Street for the entire length and replace the existing sidewalk on the east side from North Third Street to North Fourth Street. The consultant will be starting the design work next month and is looking at sidewalks on both sides. The area across from 1123 - 1141 North High Street is being investigated, with the possibility of moving the street to the west to give it more room on the east side for sidewalk, guard rail and river bank stabilization. Even more if no sidewalk is constructed there, the street would still be moved to the west.
Cm. Zastrow stated he did not believe there needed to be a sidewalk on both sides of North High Street.
Cm. Johnston stated that he believed North High was a busy street and did need sidewalk at least on one side.
After further discussion Cm. Flood, seconded by Cm. Gray moved to approve a six foot sidewalk on the west side of North High Street from North Third to CTH K and to maintain a four foot sidewalk on both sides of North High between North Third and North Fourth Streets.
After further discussion, a voice vote was called on the motion to direct staff to create a six foot sidewalk on the west side of North High Street from North Third to Hwy. K and to maintain a four foot sidewalk on both sides of North High Street between North Third and North Fourth Street. Motion carried on a voice vote.
RECOMMENDATION FROM PLANNING COMMISSION TO APPROVE PRELIMINARY CERTIFIED SURVEY MAP CREATING ONE NEW PARCEL ON MEMORIAL DRIVE EXTRA-TERRITORIAL.
City Manager Wilmet stated this was a unanimous recommendation from the Planning Commission.
Cm. Gray, seconded by Cm. Zastrow moved to approve the Preliminary Certified Survey Map creating one new parcel on Memorial Drive (extra-territorial).
After further discussion, Cm. Gray, seconded by Cm. Zastrow moved to amend the motion to include that the City reserve the rights to the right-of-way for a future Handeyside Lane and Memorial Drive. The motion to amend carried on a voice vote.
A voice vote was then called to approve the Preliminary Certified Survey Map creating one new lot on Memorial Drive (extra-territorial) and to reserve the City's rights to the right-of-way for a future Handeyside Lane and Memorial Drive. The motion carried on a voice vote.
NOTIFICATION FROM POLICE CHIEF ON RETIREMENT EFFECTIVE AUGUST 1, 200.
Cm. Johnston, seconded by Cm. Gray to accept the notification of retirement from the Police Chief effective August 1, 2000 and to authorize the Police & Fire Commission to begin the hiring process for a new chief. The motion carried on a voice vote.
REVIEW AND APPROVE CONTRACT FOR ROBERT STREET DESIGN FOR 2001 PROJECT.
City Manager Wilmet stated that a design contract has been drawn up with Crispel-Snyder Inc. for the road construction and water main replacement on Robert Street between Madison Avenue and W. Cramer Street in the year 2001. Also included is the water main replacement on a section of Taft and Garfield Streets.
Cm. Zastrow, seconded by Cm. Flood moved to approve the contract with Crispel-Snyder Inc. for Robert Street design for the 2001 project in an amount not to exceed $39,000. On call of the roll the motion carried unanimously.
REVIEW AND APPROVE AGREEMENT WITH WISCONSIN ELECTRIC POWER COMPANY FOR CONSTRUCTION EMPLOYEES PARKING ON THEIR PROPERTY AT THE END OF SOUTH WATER STREET WEST.
City Manager Wilmet stated that in an effort to minimize the effect of construction employee parking in the vicinity of the new police department, the City has been in discussions with WI Electric to allow the use of their facility at the end of S. Water St. West.
The City Manager stated that the agreement has been worked out to allow construction employees to park on the WI Electric property.
Cm. Johnston, seconded by Cm. Gray moved to approve the agreement with WI Electric Power Company for construction employees parking on their property at the end of S. Water St. West. The motion carried on a voice vote.
SET DATE FOR BOARD OF REVIEW.
City Clerk/Treasurer Elford explained that according to state statute the Board of Review must convene within 30 days of the second Monday in May. To comply with this time frame staff is requesting a meeting to be set on May 23, 2000 at 3:45 p.m. at which time the Board will pick a chairperson and a vice-chairperson and note for the record that John Wilmet and Faith Elford have been through the new certification classes. The Board will then adjourn until after open book with the assessors and will reconvene on June 12, 2000 at 1:00 p.m. to hear property owner objections.
Cm. Gray, seconded by Cm. Zastrow moved to set the Board of Review meeting dates for May 23, 2000 at 3:45 p.m. and June 12, 2000 at 1:00 p.m. The motion carried on a voice vote.
