17. Public Input:  Rosanne Boyette requested that the town hall security lighting be placed on next month’s meeting agenda because she needed more than 3 minutes to discuss this issue.  Chairman Oliphant asked her to e-mail the Clerk the details and reasons.  Rosanne also requested (per her husband, Joe Swanson) enforcement issues and overall management of the UDC Building Code be placed on next month’s meeting agenda.  Chairman Oliphant stated that Wayne Haugrud, UDC Building Inspector, is the person in charge with the authority in dealing with these issues and that Oliphant was very pleased with Haugrud’s procedure.  Rosanne also questioned timeliness of agendas & minutes posting on the town’s website.  Clerk Yttri stated that the agendas are posted about 24 hours prior to the Board meeting, and that they are usually also e-mailed to the Town’s Web list of residents who have requested this service and who have provided the Clerk with email addresses.  The suggestion of earlier posting of the minutes will be taken under advisement.  She also mentioned that the current meeting agenda did not include the adoption or non-adoption from the prior meeting on revision of the Burning Ordinance.  She was assured this was an oversight by the Clerk and the Board and was thus unintentional.

March 17 – District WTA meeting in Richland Center

March 21—Monthly Board Meeting at 7 PM. 


19. Adjourn:  Parker moved to adjourn. Nemec seconded. Meeting adjourned.
