A. Road report—

1. Update on the street lighting on Schaefer Drive and CTH Y—Ed spoke with Ted Schmitz and he assured him that the street lights would be put back up and the town would not have to pay for the installation of the lights. He asked the town to decide if where they would like the first of the three (3) lights on Schaefer to be placed. The Board felt that it should go by the tree next to the driveway where it was originally as long as the tree did not have to be removed. Ed will forward this information to Mr. Schmitz. Ed will also confirm that the streetlight(s) on County Highway Y and 151 will be put back up also. The placement of this light will be looked into in hopes that the placement will illuminate both the CTH Y & 151 intersection and the new road Thomaswood Trail that will come out on to CTH Y.

He asked if the Town would put a culvert in his driveway to help with the water. The Town will ditch out in the road right of way but Mr. Wagner will be responsible for the culvert.
