  1. Filing for office for the March 2019 election will be from 8 am, January 1 to 5pm January 15. Offices open are Supervisor (3-year term) and Treasurer (2-year term).
  1. Thank-you letter received from the Duxbury Volunteer Department

for installing a new door and a door opener on the Cloverton Fire Hall.

ZONING REPORT: Zoning Adminstrator received a letter from the Carlton County Extension program stating that they had approved a permit for a property owner on Tamarack River Road to apply wood ash and lime on his property in order to raise the soil pH.


  1. The supervisors signed off on the 2018 Road Work Order.
  2. Matt Lourey Trail North- a property owner has verbally requested that this Minimum Maintenance road by opened by the township as a township road and be plowed this winter. Because the Board believes this road is in very poor condition at this time, consensus was to not remove snow on the road this year. The Board further expressed a need for the request to be made in writing and that all property owners on this road be in support of improving the road. The issue will be then be discussed by the Board again.
  3. NPAHD Report- Representative Fran Levings reported that at the November meeting of the Hospital District Board, the Facilities Manager Dave Fornengo gave an impressive rundown on the Safety and Environment of Care of Essentia Hospital to the Board. There has not been a safety violation at Essentia Hospital-Sandstone for the past 10 years. Every reported concern, no matter how insignificant it may seem, from a damaged floor tile to a TV remote that doesn’t work to a bed that doesn’t move up correctly is immediately reported on-line, then dealt with that day if possible. Sometimes as many as 60 repair reports come in each day. Following Mr. Fornengo’s report, Essentia CEO Micheal Hedrix reported that Medicare does periodic surveys of the quality of care in critical-access hospitals and for the last 3 surveys of Essentia-Sandstone, there have been zero deficiencies. Levings then distributed a handout of Suicide Prevention numbers to call for assistance if needed.

Meeting adjourned at 8:30 pm.

Respectfully submitted,

Fran Levings, Clerk Also signed by the Chair __________________ Date _________________
