OLD BUSINESS:
ROADS
Washout on Rocky Blvd. Chair Fornengo reported that the Pine County engineer has been on vacation, so he has not been able to confer with him on this washout. He will also research financial aid in assisting with repair of this road.

Other Road Issues- Don Mishler inquired as to who had dumped gravel on McDermott Creek Rd. past Lydia Mishler’s former home. A landowner who has property on the so- called “Kirchberg Road” said the DNR dumped 10 loads of gravel on that road free of charge. Ron Mosser inquired about Craig Summerland doing road work for the township. Chair Fornengo said he did not receive a bid from Mr. Summerland by the deadline of 5pm on June 13, 2018.

NPAHD Report:
Levings reported that she had attended the MN Rural Health Care Conference in Duluth recently. She learned that the City of New Ulm underwent a 10-year program to improve the health of its citizens and were successful. She attended many small sessions at the Conference also and said it was a very worthwhile conference.

NEW BUSINESS:
MAT Short Course Report- Levings attended this seminar in Duluth. She attended the section for Treasurers since the Clerk session was on elections and she has already gone through an election training with the Pine County Auditor. She learned that our township treasurer is doing everything correctly, but there were some pointers that would help her do even better.
Anything else to come before the Board?

Anthony Fornengo reported that roadside brushing went very well.

Ron Mosser asked about the possibility of the town hiring him to install the tire on Diana Stelmach’s driveway. Chair Fornengo said this job was on the 2018 Road Work Order for Roberts Excavating.

Don Schirmer suggested considering Miller Excavating for future road work.

Respectfully submitted,

Fran Levings, clerk
