2. Approval of Minutes

Motion (Thomsen/Fischer) to approve minutes of December 9, 1997 and special meeting of December 30, 1997. MOTION CARRIED

3. Update on (Redacted)

Burt Miller is still working on this. (Redacted) has retained outside legal assistance.

4. Update on Ganser property

Ganser is no longer interested in selling her property. She is willing to consider the sale of enough acreage for Generac to build a parking lot. The board thought it would set a bad precedent to buy only enough land for a Generac parking lot. General discussion about how to proceed. Discussed getting Guttenberg involved because she knows Estella. Olsen will draft a letter and get it to the board for their input.

5. Land Price Formula and Covenants for North Industrial Park

Jefferson Common Council approved new land price formula and covenant revisions for the North Industrial Park at their December 16, 1997 meeting. Motion (Fischer/Oppermann) to adopt the new North Industrial Park land price formula as the price formula for the South Industrial Park, setting the starting price at $25,000 per acre with reductions based on number of employees and their wages and the cost of the building with a minimum price of $13,000 per acre. MOTION CARRIED

Schornack said he would get the covenants for the North Industrial Park scanned onto a computer disk and then we need to do the legal filing of the revisions. It was decided that the board should review the covenants for the South Industrial Park.

6. Permitted Uses for Industrial Parks

This issue still needs to be addressed. The issue of permitted uses was discussed previously in regards to allowing a retail operation to be co-located with an industrial operation in the South Industrial Park. Specifically this was dealing with allowing W & S Concrete to allow their mechanics to work on third party vehicles. That sale did not follow our established procedures for the purchase of land. The board felt that Mr. Wendorf be treated the same as anyone else purchasing property in our industrial parks and he should be required to present a site plan and go through the normal process for getting permission to build a building.

7. North Industrial Park Site Plan

It was suggested that the rail spur be drawn in. Also, it was suggested that the road drawn to the north would not be able to be built as drawn. These requests will be forwarded to Dan Ludwig.

8. Local Business News

Health 2000, a vitamin and health care supplement sales company, has moved their operation from Madison into the building immediately south of the American Legion Post on North Main Street.

Olsen reported on the purchase of the former Water Perfect business on East Racine Street by Dr. David Volk. Dr. Volk will be operating his chiropractic clinic and is looking into leasing part of the building out to an automotive body repair shop. Olsen has referred Dr. Volk to Dan Ludwig to discuss the zoning.

Schornack gave an update on the progress of the Puerner Building since the fire. He discussed the proposed plaza and parking lot and said there are other developers who will be presenting different proposals.

9. Schweiger Office Building

Martin reported the old Schweiger Office Building has been sold through a Milwaukee broker. He is not sure of what their plans for the building are.

10. Adjourn Meeting adjourned at 8:10 a.m.
