  3. Circulated copy of new letterhead stationery.


  1. Land Use Permit # 70 was issued to Gary Montgomery to move a mobile home onto his property.


  1. Update on ditches by Hay Creek Road near cemetery:  Clerk had sent a letter to Carlson Timber Products requesting $400.00 for damages done during logging this summer.  A Carlson employee spoke with supervisor Dave Baker and said they would repair the damage.  When it was done, Supervisor Baker was not satisfied with the work, and the Carlson employee said they would re-do it. Ditches had not been fixed as of this meeting. Dave Baker volunteered to call Carlson Timber again.  It is important that ditches be in good shape before winter.


  1. Discussion of Hessler Lane.  Two property owners on Hessler Lane contacted Supervisor Baker inquiring whether or not Hessler Lane was a township road and thus not subject to snowplowing fees from them.  The supervisors verified that it is indeed a townsite platted road and no plowing fees would be required.  Motion by Dave Fornengo, second by Dave Baker, to add Hessler Lane to the list of township certified roads. Carried. 
  2. Discussion of the gated road/trail west of the Wisconsin state line.  Dave Fornengo reported on conversations he has had with a property owner on this road/trail inquiring about the gate.  The Board reiterated its policy that the first thing property owners should do when this type of concern arises it to attempt to resolve any dispute among themselves.  It that does not work and a property owner is landlocked, he or she a may either (a) work out a legal easement with other property owner(s) or (b) petition the Board for a cartway.  Chair Fornengo will continue to use this policy in any further conversations with property owners on this road/trail.  

Meeting adjourned at 8:30 p.m. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Fran Levings, Clerk
