OLD BUSINESS:

Signs are not here yet for the Archery Club gate and no keys have been distributed.  It was noted that the area really looks nice. 

 

REPORTS:

None.  Supervisor Rauch did his online training for the Board of Equalization so he is up to date on that.

Stone Lake Road discussed.  Wade would like to do some small work on two corners.  Discussion held.  Supervisor Moudry made a motion to allow Thoring’s Grading to do the work.  Supervisor Rauch seconded motion and it carried on unanimous voice call vote. 

 

It was brought to Wade Thoring’s attention that there is a lot of water on the Schroeder Road so it may have a false ditch.

 

A farmer wrecked Birch Hill Road.  Wade Thoring tried to fix it but he needs to do more.  Supervisor Moudry will check it out tonight and see what more needs to be done and try to figure out who did it as well.

 

The roads that were missing from the road log were added but do not have a schedule. 

 

Bemidji Township is paving 16th Street at the present time so Thorings were told to be careful at the intersection.  Paving procedures discussed.

 

 

As there was no further business, Supervisor Moudry made motion to adjourn. Supervisor Rauch seconded motion and it carried on unanimous voice call vote.  Meeting adjourned at 7:45 p.m.
