Minutes/Monthly Board Mtg. - 4/16/2009



The meeting was opened by Chairman Jim Melin, there were 11 in attendance.

The minutes of the March 12 meeting were read.  Motion by Jeff Lade to accept the minutes as read, second by Roger Hinrichs.  Motion carried.

The Treasurers report was reviewed.  Total assets in all accounts are $187910.03.  There was a motion made by Roger Hinrichs to accept the Treasurers report, second by Jeff Lade.  Carried.

Resident Issues: Mark Schulz was present to discuss the damage done to his property this past winter by the snowplow.  He also wished to discuss the removal of a fence from his parents property. He sited the letter Roger sent concerning this issue and the inaccuracy of the statute sited. There was much discussion concerning this issue with Dwight explaining why his is plowing the way he is and the need to remove the fence.  Also why the steps were destroyed.  It was determined that Chair. Melin will meet with Mr. Schulz at his property to look over the damage and determine if in fact the damage could have been avoided and if the town has any liability in this issue.  Dwight requested Mr. Schulz call Jim Flanigan at the County as he is the one who gave Dwight the information as to what rights and responsiblities the Town has concerning objects on the road right of way and it is apparent that the information Mr. Schulz has attained via an attoryney is in direct conflict as to what Mr. Flanigan has given Dwight.
