MINUTES OF THE CITY COUNCIL MEETING
FORT ATKINSON, WISCONSIN
JULY 6, 2000
A regular meeting of the City Council was called to order by President Day at 7:30 p.m. in the Council Chambers of the Municipal Building.
On call of the roll members present were:
Gordon Day, Jr.
Absent was Bruce Johnston.
Also present were the City Manager, City Attorney, City Clerk/Treasurer, City Engineer, Assistant City Engineer, Building Inspector and the Public Works Superintendent.
Cm. Flood moved to approve the minutes of the June 20, 2000 regular Council meeting. Motion seconded by Cm. Gray. Motion carried on a voice vote.
Cm. Flood, seconded by Cm. Zastrow, moved to approve the request by the Chamber of Commerce to put up the brat stand and block the parking stalls on East Milwaukee Avenue at South Main Street for Carnival Days on July 28 and 29, 2000. The motion carried on a voice vote.
Cm. Flood, seconded by Cm. Gray moved to accept and place on file the minutes of the Public Works Committee meeting held June 22, 2000; and the minutes of the Planning Commission meeting held June 27, 2000. The motion carried on a voice vote.
City Manager Wilmet stated that the Public Works Committee was unanimous in their approval to use slurry seal on the Level 1 and 2 streets this year. He stated that the slurry seal and precoated chip sealcoat were both submitted as alternate bids in the contract with B.R. Amon for the 2000 street program. The alternate bid for the sealcoat was $20,655.96 and the slurry seal alternate bid was $24,204.55. If the Public Works Committee recommendation is approved by the Council, then the monies or the slurry seal will need to be added to the contract. The City Manager further stated that the budget for the street program work includes monies for either process.
Cm. Zastrow, seconded by Cm. Gray moved to approve the recommendation from the Public Works Committee to use slurry seal on the Level 1 and 2 street mainte-nance program for the year 2000 and to evaluate the performance next year and to approve the change order.
Cm. Flood stated that since the slurry seal does provide the potential for a street to be closed overnight, he urged staff to please notify any and all residents involved with the project.
Roll was then called on the motion. On call of the roll, the motion carried unanimously.
City Manager Wilmet explained that at Planning Commission the motion to approve this Plat was defeated on a 3 to 4 roll call vote.
Pres. Day allowed Mr. James Hedrick to come forward to the podium to speak to the Council. Mr. Hedrick stated that his lots do fall into the guidelines set by the City for single family residential lots. He further stated that due to the objections of the neighbors for duplexes, he has agreed to go to single family. Mr. Hedrick also stated that he is prepared to up-front the cost of development including the portion adjacent to Mr. Linton's property.
The City Council also discussed the fact that ten of the 12 lots proposed by Mr. Hedrick are as big as any other City lots in our newer subdivisions.
Pres. Day then allowed Ms. Linda Scott-McCabe of 1414 Greene Street to speak to the Council. She noted that her lot borders on the area in question and stated her opposition to this Plat. Ms. Scott-McCabe noted that along Greene Street there are several over-sized lots that were created in that area and she wished to see the con-tunuity of those over-sized lots along the rest of Greene Street.
Ms. Scott-McCabe also questioned as to why Greene Street has to be extended at all, or even why Highland Avenue must go through?
Cm. Flood, seconded by Cm. Gray moved to reject the denial by the Planning Commission and approve the 12-lot Preliminary Plat for Highland Park Subdivision on the extension of Highland Avenue, east of South Main Street with the contingency that Mr. Hedrick negotiate and obtain the necessary road right-of-way from Mr. Linton for this project.
Cm. Flood stated that the City does have an interest in seeing Highland Avenue go through to Highway 12. It is designated in the Master Plan as a collector street. Cm. Flood also noted that when the neighbors did not want R-2 zoning in the neighborhood, Mr. Hedrick did comply and went to R-1 single family zoning and Cm. Flood also believes that the lots designated on this Plat are standard City lots and it is a good decision to allow this development to occur.
Cm. Gray asked what would happen if Mr. Linton does not agree to work with Mr. Hedrick for the right-of-way?
City Attorney Rogers stated that should the Council pass this motion, the Plat must be signed by the City Clerk before any development can occur, and the City Clerk will not sign the Plat until the contingencies are met.
Cm. Gray then inquired how we could ever get Highland Avenue through.
The City Attorney stated that there are other options which at the end of the list would be condemnation of the property.
Pres. Day also stated that he believed that this Plat does agree with out City's Master Plan and that the lots are of ample size and meet City specifications.
Roll was then called on the motion to reject the denial and approve the 12-lot Preliminary Plat for Highland Park Subdivision on the extension of Highland Avenue, east of South Main Street, with the contingency that Mr. Hedrick obtain the road right-of-way needed from Mr. Linton. On call of the roll, the motion carried unanimously.
City Manager Wilmet introduced Mr. Dave Vriezen and Mr. Eric Hands of the Department of Commerce. Mr. Vriezen stated that during his inspection in May he found the Department of Public Works, Water Department and Sewer Department to be in good shape. He also commented that there was no inspection done on the Police Department upon hearing that a new Police Department was in the process of being built.
After further discussion, Cm. Flood, seconded by Cm. Gray moved to accept and file the report on the City's occupational safety inspection. The motion carried on a voice vote.
Mr. Sheldon Mielke stepped forward to the podium to speak to the Council. Mr. Mielke stated that these covenants have been developed utilizing the input from City staff, City Attorney, John Stockham (the City's consultant), and the Executive Committee of the Fort Atkinson Industrial Development Corporation, as well as a review of the covenants from several other area industrial/business parks. Mr. Mielke stated that he believes the adoption of these covenants will insure that the Business Park will be developed according to standards that will enhance the future business growth of the City.
Cm. Gray inquired if any of our other industrial parks have covenants?
Mr. Mielke stated that there have been no other covenants and that the Development Corporation simply relied on our Zoning Ordinances in the City. Mr. Mielke further stated that he believes the City has been very lucky to have the quality of buildings established in the north business park.
When asked if there is anything in the covenants that would make Fort Atkinson unique or anything that would make a customer want to come to Fort Atkinson rather than another industrial park, Mr. Mielke stated that he thinks there are several good features. Mr. Mielke stated that he believes the treatment of the buildings along Highway 26 and setting them at a higher standard of design than those further into the Park is an appealing feature. Mr. Mielke further stated that perhaps the majority of the covenants are not exactly unique to our Business Park, but he does feel that to acquire high quality tenants in a business park it is important to simply have a set of covenants. A good prospect likes the fact that covenants are set in a business park.
Cm. Zastrow, seconded by Cm. Gray moved to approve the recommendation from the Industrial Development Corporation to approve the declaration of protective covenants for the Robert L. Klement Business Park. The motion carried on a voice vote.
Following a report that the applications had been reviewed and approved for accuracy by the Police Department, upon the motion of Cm. Flood, seconded by Cm. Gray moved to approve the following operator licenses:

The motion carried on a voice vote.
Cm. Gray, seconded by Cm. Zastrow moved to approve the Special Beer License for the Chamber of Commerce's brat stand on July28 and 29, 2000. The motion carried on a voice vote.
City Manager Wilmet stated that Public Works Superintendent Tom Kramp was present and willing to answer any questions the Council may have.
Mr. Kramp stated that in the 2000 budget, funds were set aside for the purchase of two oil transfer pumps at a cost of $1,400 and one hydraulic engine hoist at a cost of $700. Since that time, the shop staff has learned how to rebuild the existing transfer pumps and staff and also stated that for the few instances that it occurs that an engine hoist is needed, they can continue to do what they have done in the past.
Staff is therefore requesting that the $2,100 be allocated to purchase a diagnostic unit to assist them when working on the newer vehicles the City now has. The cost of the new unit would be $2,095. Mr. Kramp further stated that the new diagnostic unit would save the staff much time and the street machinery budget expenditures for sending the vehicles out to dealerships for diagnosis.
Cm. Zastrow, seconded by Cm. Flood moved to accept the reallocation of the City Garage capital outlay purchases. On call of the roll, motion carried unanimously.
