Sarah Everson introduced herself as the Town of Lamartine (District 5) Representative Fond du Lac County Board Supervisor. She will be attending a couple more board meetings this year. The Board welcomed her and thanked her for coming.

a. Road Report—Frank reported that the Foss Road issue has been settled. All documents (Quit Claim Deed) have been signed. Frank also reported a new standard has been signed into law by the state regarding Implements of Husbandry (IOH). It is a very complex law and will require training of farmers, county & town officials. No citations will be issued in 2014. Beginning in 2015 haulers using heavy / overweight limit IOH will need to get permits at no cost to travel on the roadways.
The Town received a list of noxious weeds that were found in the township. The town will need to take care of these weeds.
Rich has started the roadside mowing and is partway through the first pass.
i. Culvert Permit Report—No culvert permits were issued this past month.
ii. Discussion / Decision: Culvert on Giebel Road—Discussion took place regarding six culverts identified as needing to be replaced including the culvert on Giebel Road by Dan Pucker. Mike moved seconded by Bruce that the board approves the culvert replacements of six culverts including the culvert on Giebel Road; the culverts will be done at Frank’s discretion and will not be put out for bids because they will be done individually and will be at a lower cost. Motion carried 3-0.
Frank reported that Rich, himself and Brent Marchant (Marchant Excavating) looked at the two culverts on Palmer Road. Some excavation work was done on the culvert(s) but not as extensively as originally thought. Town will have to watch the culverts and see if this work helps with the area over the culvert “dipping” as the town has seen occur in the past. Northeast Asphalt will begin the TRIP project work on Palmer Road the end of June.
