  • Micheal Hedrix, Essentia Administrator, has been laid off due to budget cuts and Heather O’Brien, RN, is interim administrator.

  • 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’
    • 1 – 30” by 30’
    • 1 – 13” by 30’

Former Clerk Levings proposes:  Have Arna Township take 5 – 15” by 30’ culverts that were purchased for $242.40 each and 4- 12” by 30’ culverts that were purchased for $196.50 each for a total of $1998.  This would leave a balance due to Arna Township for $115.00.

Motion by Dave Fornengo, second by AJ Fornengo, to approve reimbursement to Arna Township for $115.00 as well as pick up the proposed culverts.

  • Dave Fornengo is directing all calls to the Town hall phone number as he has been receiving negative calls that are not appropriate for his personal line.
