Clerk-Treasurer Report: Clerk currently has a computer that was purchased in 2011.  It is getting very low on memory and it has Windows 2007 software which (in January 2020)  will no longer be supported by Microsoft.  We will not be able to do any security updates which could leave us exposed to hackers.

Val is wondering about getting a new desktop computer with the 2010 Windows operating system. Will also need to purchase a newer version of Quickbooks and Word as that is what I use the most.  Motion was made to give Val permission to buy what she thinks will be best by S. Nielsen, 2nd by B. Anderson.  Approved.


Committee Reports: Fire Building will be opening soon.  Chairs were purchased by Peoples State Bank.

They have been slowly moving things in.

Ambulance district will be in the process of hiring a clerk/treasurer. They will start advertising next week.  Interviews will begin the first week in January.  This position will be approximately 2 hours/week or 15-17 hours per month and will pay $6,000 annually.


No New Business


Public Comment: Rich thanked Kevin for all his hard work.  Several agreed that the township roads are quite a bit better than others in the area.


If Bob is selected for chair of the fire/ambulance district he will respectfully decline for health reasons.


Motion to adjourn meeting was made by B. Anderson, 2nd by S. Nielsen. Approved.


Meeting adjourned at 7:30pm
