Motion by Dave Fornengo, second by Beverly Carlin, to approve the Minutes of September 12, 2018, with an amended typo.  Carried.

Treasurer Mandy Fornengo presented the Treasurer’s Report.  It was apparent that the Road & Bridge Fund has a balance in the red.  Road repair work done on the huge washout on Rocky Blvd. was very expensive- it involved purchasing a large culvert, having that culvert installed, then repairing the rest of that section of road.  Chair Fornengo reminded the Board that he has applied to FEMA for reimbursement for this expense since it was due to a massive flood at the end of May.  Clerk Levings distributed a sheet stating what monies will still be coming in this year and what anticipated Road & Bridge expenses may be for the rest of 2018.   Motion by Dave Fornengo, second by Jason Fornengo, to cash in CD# 2016 in the amount of $28.000 and transfer that money to the Road & Bridge Fund. Carried.

  2. NPAHD report- Rep. Levings distributed a handout “Pine County Profile”. Ambulance services director Joe Newman had presented an excellent overview of his department at the Sept.

  1. Tri-Township Disposal District Report- Rep. Dave Baker reported that the District has a new garbage truck.  The old truck had become very expensive to maintain.  The District used the funds of a CD to make the purchase.  Supervisor Carlin asked if the District planned to trade the new truck in after a certain number of years.  Baker responded that this particular truck is “state of the art” and may not be traded in for quite a while.  Chair Fornengo recommended the District develop a 5-year plan regarding the new truck.

Respectfully submitted,

Fran Levings, Clerk
