March 16, 2011 Special Town Board Meeting

Special Town Board Meeting
Madge Town Hall

Chairman, Mike Baker, called the meeting to order at 7:00 pm. Board, clerk and Treasurer were present. Citizens present – Harley Wickware.

Harley and Kathy Wickware – property tax bill –
From 3/9/11 minutes – Town Board Meeting:
Dave Sovacool, assessor, received the permit for the trailer that was put on the property, investigated, and then failed to put in computer. Harley Wickware did eventually call Dave and it was put on the tax roll. Dave feels it was his fault (assessor error) and Harley should not be penalized. The Town can do an omitted tax, but can only go back two years. The improvements were not on the tax roll for three years. Zack Tranmer will contact Janet Ullum, county treasurer, and find out the towns options. Not action taken. Postpone until a special meeting or the next Town Board Meeting.

Board options: waive tax bill or do an omitted tax for the last two years. Board will be setting precedent. If waived it could come back in future to hurt the town.
Procedure for omitted tax – Has to go before the Board of Review. The County will then send a tax bill to property owners. The tax is applied to next years levy. Property owners can pay tax now and the town will set aside until the bill is out.
Wickware’s improvements are assessed at $71,300. The tax for 2009 and 2010 would be $2019.44.
Jay Hands made a motion to follow WI State Statues for omitted tax for the years 2009 and 2010 for Harley and Kathy Wickware. The amount of omitted tax will be $2019.44. Seconded by Bill Lennox. Motion passed with 3 yes and 0 no.

Meeting adjourned at 7:25 pm
