road that need to be re-done and get a more detailed response, the information in the letter was too vague. The supervisors

sheepsfoot compactor damage, culverts not yet done, etc. Dave will also explore the possibility of a bond. Dave will call
to set up a meeting time.

had with him. Mr. Neelan was given the okay to put up a fence up to 6ft in height on part of his property and he was asked
to attend a town board meeting to discuss the matter (which he has not done). Brad reported that a fence has been started.
Greg made a motion that a letter be sent to him requesting he attend a board meeting where supervisors can explain the legalities
of his violation fees and what he needs to do to get off the violation list.

meeting or give a board member a phone call to indicate when he will conclude removing items from the lot.

of the recycling dumpster and broke them all over the parking lot & lawn. Justin cleaned a lot of it up Wednesday when
he was here for PZ office hours, Randy continued clean up the following day.
Mark gave the cemetery report. He had 3 family members request lot transfers. Upon visiting the family cemetery lot
there is some confusion because a head stone does not match up with the actual location of the coffin. It is a very old site
and records do not reflect the information. Mark is working on concluding the transfer of sites with them within the same
