VILAS COUNTY ADDRESSING ORDINANCE ENFORCEMENT:  Becky Nordine, Vilas County Addressing Coordinator, Jim Galloway, Vilas County Emergency Management and Lt. Dale Soltow, Vilas County Sheriff were present to answer any questions about the Vilas County Addressing Ordinance and the towns failure to comply with 90 day notice on address changes done by the County. The County sends letters to affected property owners notifying them of an address change and telling them to get the new number up within the 90 day time frame. Because Arbor Vitae allows taxpayers to do their own posting, what can we do if they fail to do it within the 90 day time frame? Questions were asked on right-of-entry on easements, charges to have road crew put up the sign and so it will be on our next agenda to determine some of these answers. Nordine reassured the board that as soon as the Clerk notifies her that the street sign and fire numbers are posted she adds them to the map and updates the 911 emergency system.   

OPERATOR’S LICENSES:  There were 4 applications. 3 of them checked out. 1 has a felony for 6 OWI’s. It is before the Governor for forgiveness. Motion by Held, second by Nerdahl to except the 3 and deny the one until after he is excused before issuing.
