Helen Haney inquired if the Town had taken over Treptow Lane and if not she wondered if Larry Conger would be charged by the Town for grading of the gravel section of Treptow Lane as he had requested the Town do at the September Board Meeting. Frank stated that no the Town has not taken the road over. Helen stated that she felt that it was only fair that the Town bill Conger’s as the Town has made other developers pay for grading etc. on their subdivision roads.
