REPORTS & COMMUNICATIONS
a. Road Report— Frank reported that the ditch mower is down and is in the shop for welding. If the weld doesn’t work, a new part will be needed for approximately $1400.00. Justin has been mowing grass, spraying Wild Parsnip and other weeds. He will be putting more gravel in the open culvert spots if the Scott Construction crew is not going to be in the township soon to do blacktopping. Frank informed the board that he got a phone call from Rich Buteyn asking if the board wanted to hire him to do the mowing part time for the town this summer. Discussion took place with the board feeling that Frank should notify Rich that the town did not currently need regular part time help. If and when Justin felt that he needed help he would offer the work to the part time plow drivers first.
