New Business
Town hall plans: It was brought up to change the doors on storage area to accordion style
doors. This would allow this space to be used for storage as well as a place for a band to set
up. Travis called wanting to do cathedral ceilings with spiral duct work with no change in the
cost because Hoholiks are concerned about having space issues with a flat ceiling and it will
be more difficult for the mechanical work. He is also going to add a header and doors on the
right side and stay within budget. Motion C. Watchorn Support B. Landis AIF M/C

Wind mill meeting proposal: We can not have elected officials meet as a sub committee as
this is a violation unless it is published. Inwood Township as no zoning for them, as this is
done thru the county. Inwood Township cannot change the zoning.

BOR update: We had 9 veteran exempts totaling a $400,000 write off of assessed value. The
