Citizen Concerns: A request was made by Mr. Joe Bozich, Fairview Road for the Town Board to consider lowering the speed limit on Fairview Road. This item will be added to the September 10, 2007 Town Board Meeting agenda for consideration. Henry Schneider asked the Board how much money has been spent by the Town to research the Town gravel road/driveways being returned to the landowners and why the Town is considering returning these roads after all these years. The Town has not received all the bills for the attorney fees for the work done on this project so no definite amount could be determined at this time. They also explained that some of the gravel roads/driveways are not owned by the town and are therefore private drives that the town tax payers are paying for to grate, gravel, plow, etc. Larry Conger inquired as to the town having an opinion or an ordinance regarding the placement of paper boxes. The “Reporter/Action Advertisers” are being delivered by the same carriers and some of the carriers are moving the boxes to the opposite side of the road that the mail boxes are on. The Board will address this issue at the September 10th Town Board Meeting.
