Old Business

-Ridge Road issues continue to be TABLED. The lady working for Equalization is only there two days a week with odd hours making it difficult to discuss and resolve these problems. To fix these issues will be more extensive and costly due to having to change maps and plot books. Work is still in progress.


New Business

-Manistique Senior Center is asking for support in the upcoming November election. They are asking for a five year, .62 mileage towards operational funding only. Past mileages have failed and Connie is concerned it could result in the doors closing. They are the busiest Senior Center in the U.P. and offer so much to our local seniors.



-F.D. – assisted with a truck fire at Tylene’s and also with rerouting traffic for the accident by Foxy’s Den.

-Corn Roast was a huge success. Thanked everyone who contributed and attended.


-EMS – Two individuals interested in taking the EMS class. It costs $800 per person and if they fail the class they are responsible for repayment. EMS is asking for help with funding towards sending these individuals to take the course. Motion B. Elliot Support S. Roberts AIF M/C

-State inspection went very well. Asked to put in Discrimination Practices in EMS policy Book and to put in the Township policy book as well. Motion B. Landis Support C. Watchorn AIF M/C
