Citizen Concerns:

A. Road Report—Frank reported that the recent heavy amounts of rain created some road problems. Rich has them taken care of. Rich has been grading some small areas. Frank if necessary will be contacting the wireless tower installers to come back and do the final grading work they need to complete in the township. Larry Conger completed the tiling of his farmland around the West Lane subdivision. The water drains to a sump pit and is pumped or discharged into the West Lane ditch. The water than drains into the Hwy 23 ditch and flows to the river. The DOT and Fond du Lac County will be cleaning the south Hwy 23 ditch from the Close Property to the river.
