TOWN BOARD MEETING

Larry Maloney reported that the state have permit applications sent directly to them by electronic format. By January 2, 2018 they will have a standard electonic form. It will be available in 2017, but it will go into effect in 2018. The builder has to come in with all the information such as the plans, energy work sheets like he always did. The only difference is that the builder can submit the application on line to the state but he still has to send it to the municipality. Once the municipality gets a permit form and they would be approved like always and electronically by the 15th of the following month after the permit has been finalized and issued, we would have to send that information to the state. A penalty if it is not done in that time the town would have to reimburse the builder for all the fees that he has paid except for the state seal. There are three ways to electronically submit these permits. Larry Maloney suggested that the builder file with the department so that all the information is filled out. Then they come to the town and bring their forms, plans, energy worksheet site plan and whatever we would require and that’s when the permit would be issued. Dale Markwardt signed the forms that authorizes Bill Jindra and Larry Maloney to act on the municipality’s behalf. The town has to alert the state that we are implementing the Act 211 prior to the 2nd of January, 2018. The state will send us an access code and on that access code gives information to who is able to issue the permit. A motion was made by George Luebke to have a second person, William Jindra on the form Delegation of Authority.

A motion was made by George Luebke to accept the 2015 Wisconsin Act 211 Municipality Delegation of Authority to both Larry Maloney and William Jindra. Seconded by Guy Gustafson. Motion carried.
