Maintenance Report: Kevin is looking for feedback on what the “Mower Man” did in the ditches along the roads. The board agreed he did not do a very good job. He left a lot of large sticks and such, some in roadways. He won’t be back to do work for us. A resident left a large amount of dirt on the road, because it could cause injury to someone coming over the road Kevin told them it needed to be removed, they assured him it would be done. It has not been dealt with and this was over 2 weeks ago. Bob will talk with him and let him know that it needs to get done or we will take care of it and send him the bill. Mirrors on the truck are mounted in plastic which does not hold up well in the cold. Kevin has the approval to take it somewhere and get it taken care of, this motion was made by S. Nielsen, 2nd by K. Hackbarth. Approved.
Chairman Report: Bob has been active in the Boyceville Ambulance credit card issues. A Barron County detective is actively investigating this issue. Matt and Tessa Feeny are on paid administrative leave. Question was asked if they are bonded because of the amount of monies they handle. Bob will ask about this. Fire/Ambulance board will be meeting on Monday to discuss hiring someone who is willing to do the billing and payroll for the Ambulance Service.
LRIP (Local Road Improvement Program): Our township was not selected to get this money. Every year only 11 out of the 22 get selected, because we got it last year we did not get it again.
Supervisor Reports: Some discussion on the “mower man” job.
Question was asked about the townships agreement with Boyceville fire/ambulance. Our township currently owns 21% of the district. This percentage is based on equalized value.
Some discussion on Advanced Disposal and the three year contract we have with them.
