Loren is going to ask the mill about donating felt – TABLED


-Paving parking lot of the new hall to be done 7/2/17. It was questioned if Cross Construction included top soil for the edges of the parking lot in the contract. Kelly to contact Cross, but didn’t think it was included in price.


-Old cemetery has a lot of holes and ruts. Boys scouts and local Democrats to help with labor to fix the landscaping. DesJarden’s is going to donate top soil and Robere Farms is going to donate sand. Bill Anderson had asked if the Township would approve putting a sign up at the cemetery to recognize everyone that is going to help with the project.  Motion C. Watchorn Support B. Landis AIF M/C



-F.D. – assisted with two accidents on US2. Water is back on at the Fire Hall. One issue discussed. Apparently the issue was with the septic during the winter. Water was coming from the furnace and freezing the toilets causing them to not be used. Board to contact Hoholik’s for a holding tank to prevent issues in the future.


-EMS – Wants to advertise for an EMS class in October – looking for EMT and First Response. Also selling Corn Roast tickets via Cindy Swayer.



-T-Mobile wants to improve antennas, location on Fire Tower Road.
