the meeting to order and the pledge to the flag was recited.
The requests for lights at 70th and 50th
Ave where they intersect with the highway were discussed. Greg had spoken with County Engineer Tim Bray. He will also get
information on traffic counts and other research that the county did prior to selecting the St. Mathias Road/371 intersection
for a light. Greg will bring this information to the next meeting.
Greg also spoke with Tim Bray about the water problems
in the Burr Lane/Lone Oak Road area. Tim recommended not moving any of the water to alleviate these problems because once
the township would start moving water, it then becomes the township’s responsibility. Pam Fitch was present and said
that when the wetland overflowed last year into the ditch of Ravenswood Road, she had the problem of water reaching her house.
Greg noted that even when the water overflowed into the ditch it did not fill the ditch to the point where water backed up,
so a culvert wouldn’t have done anything to lower the water in her yard. Mark will loan them an auger to try drilling
holes on their property to drain some of the water. This has worked elsewhere and may provide some relief.
The Anthony property was discussed. The board would like
to hear from them about what the intend to do. The deadline for either bringing the salvage yard into compliance with the
ordinance or completing cleanup is approaching. A letter will be sent asking that they contact the board.
Dave gave the road report. Crack
filling was not begun by Anderson Brothers, so it will be postponed until fall when the weather is cooler.
The CTAS accounting program is going to require rewriting.
The charge to each city or town is $300, Greg made a motion to send in the fee. The motion was seconded by Dave and passed
Mark made a motion to approve the June 25th minutes as
written. The motion was seconded by Greg and passed unanimously.
Correspondence was reviewed and the meeting adjourned by
general consent at 8:20 p.m.
