  • In 2012, New Dosey Township purchased 6 culverts (12”by 30’) and 7 culverts (15” by 30’) for $2,875.80. Arna Township reimbursed New Dosey Township in 2012, $2113.80 for some of these culverts. Both Arna Township clerk Cheryl Wickham nor former New Dosey Township clerk Fran Levings can find a record of how many and what size culvers Arna ordered. Arna Township would like to pick up their culverts and store them in Markville. The current inventory of culverts stored at New Dosey are the following:
    • 7  – 15” by 30’
    • 6 – 10” by 30’
    • 1 – 16” by 30’
    • 4 – 12” by 30’
