HUGH GUY, Land Surveying, presented a situation regarding Parcel
#018-00025.023 (Part of Gov Lot 4, Section 4, T32N-R21E).  The concern
involves an easement deeded to the Town of Middle Inlet for the
development of a Town road.  However, due to the location this
easement would never be considered for development of a road.  The
property owner, therefore, requests that the Town consider deeding
this described easement back to them.  Following a discussion the Town
Board indicated they would consider the request, if the necessary
legal paperwork and drafting of the Quit-Claim Deed be completed
without any expense for the Town.  Mr. Guy indicated this would be
done.  Motion to Approve the removal of said easement from the
description on Parcel #018-00025.023 made by Van and seconded by
Wenzel.  Motion carried.  (3 to 0)

carried.  (3 to 0)

Recent confusion regarding the salary for the municipal court judge
resulted in an extensive research and statutory clarification as to
the current salary situation.  The salary was originally set at
$100.00 per month.  At no time has there been any action by any
governing body(s) to increase the salary as per Wis. Statutes, CHAPTER

In addition, the municipal ordinances and the “Intergovernmental
Agreement” created as part of the formation of the NEAR NORTH JOINT
MUNICPAL COURT, states that the salary is to be shared equally by the
participating municipalities.  Therefore, the Town of Middle Inlet
will meet their obligation  (1/5 of $100.00 = $20.00) for the $100.00

To comply with the “Intergovernmental Agreement” – MUNICIPAL COURT
COMMITTEE, the following Board action was taken:

		Town Representative ……………… RICHARD M. WADE

		Alternate Representative ……………CHARLES D. STANEK

Motion to Approve by Van and seconded by Wenzel.  Motion carried.  (3
to 0)
