Town of Sherman seeking bids for Abbott Drive road project work

SHERMAN — Advertisements will soon be published in the Random Lake Sounder soliciting bids for work on Abbott Drive.

Repavement of slightly over five miles is a joint project between the towns of Sherman and Scott. A little over a mile lies in Scott; the rest is in Sherman.

When the Sherman Board of Supervisors met Tuesday for its monthly meeting, the board was reminded of the special board meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 31, at 7 p.m., when received bids will be opened. Officials from town of Scott are also scheduled to be present. This special meeting will be open to the public.

The board unanimously approved a memo of understanding between Sherman and Scott, regarding the project.

The board discussed what kind of road maintenance project the town would do with shared revenue from the half-per cent sales tax Sheboygan County has implemented with the start of 2017.

The town needs to describe work which is above and beyond work covered by the town’s budget. The amount the town expects to receive from this shared revenue is a little under $24,000. The board decided to specify chip-sealing on Silver Creek-Cascade Road and Creek Road.

The transfer station continues its winter schedule through March, when it is only open the first and third Saturdays. It was open the fifth Saturday of December, but there will be no more fifth Saturdays in January, February, or March.

A dog running loose was brought to the board’s attention. It is not causing trouble, but concern was expressed that it could be hit by a car. The board agreed that for such a problem, it’s best to call the town constable, Jeff Kreutzinger, at (920) 447- 9255, so it can be addressed right away.

Clerk/Treasurer Rhonda Klatt would like to have walls constructed in the current town office, to create a secure area to accommodate growing storage needs. She and the board will work with the Fire Department on this. Once the walls are built, board meetings will take place in the fire hall instead of in the office.

Several board members encouraged residents to attend Town Board meetings, which are open to the public. They are typically scheduled for the first Tuesday of the month at 7 p.m.

Klatt said that Kreutzinger has received the radio that the town ordered for his use as town constable. Klatt added that Kreutzinger had needed to use the radio shortly after receiving it, when two cars driving in front of him hit ice and left the road, one rolling over.

Building permits in the past two months (a list of those from November had not been available at the December meeting): Russel Grothus, chimney; Phil Holk, plumbing; Jeff Hiller, razing; Christ Pond, electrical; Dale Wulff, electrical; Silver Creek Fire Department, electrical; Bob Michaels, plumbing. The building inspector’s report was unanimously approved.

The next regular town board meeting will be Tues., Feb. 7.
