Citizen Concerns:


1. Road Report—the crack filling is finished in the township. The crack filling company has recommended to the town that a 2-inch cold mix overlay is applied from CTH Y up Hillcrest Road to Randallwood Lane as there are so many cracks it would be better than crack filling. Frank suggested that the town look into installing curb and gutter on Hillcrest Road from CTH Y to Randallwood Lane to stop the gravel shoulder from washing out. Discussion took place regarding culverts needing some work/replacing on Hillcrest Road, Townline Road, Karst Drive and Smith Road. The Town will decide if all the culvert work will be done this year or if one or so will be postponed until next year, depending on budget funds available. Rich has been working on Hageman Road grinding off bumps. He will then do some shouldering.

B. Report on purchasing a new Town truck—Frank referred to two tables he distributed to the other board members listing the companies and quotes for the purchase of a new town patrol truck. Discussion took place regarding which truck the town would like to purchase. Frank reported that Rich and he had researched the trucks and he recommended purchasing the truck chassis with Tandem Axle from Packer City International and the body and equipment to be purchased from Monroe Body & Equipment, all for approximately $ 130,790.00. Mike made a motion to recommend purchasing the International tandem axle chassis & the remainder from Monroe Body & Equipment. Bruce seconded the motion. Motion carried 3-0. Frank noted that the Town would hold a Special Town Meeting May 22, 2008 at 6:30 Pm @ the Lamartine Municipal Building Meeting Room to seek approval from the electors to spend over the approved highway budget in order for the Town to purchase the new patrol truck. The public is encouraged to attend. Discussion then took place regarding how the Town would like to pay for this truck. Frank made a motion to borrow $90,000 from the Board of Commissioners of Public Lands Trust Fund Loan for a five year loan and take the remainder of the money for the truck ($40,790.00) out of the town money market account. Bruce seconded the motion. Motion carried 2-1. Frank—YES, Bruce—YES and Mike—NO.

C. Update on Cemetery/Veterans Memorial Committee Meeting 4/28/08 & the Brat Fry—Greg reported that the brat fry made a profit of $2277.00. The event was considered a success. The hand made quilt raffle and the mini $40.00 give away raffle were not very successful. The vet memorial is about $23,000 away from being able to complete this project.
