Road Report – Center stripping of Reif Mills Rd should get done in the next couple of weeks by Calumet County. Fisherville Rd chip seal is completed, still needs shouldering. Ditching request on Thunder Rd, not worth the effort at this time. North end of Poplar Rd needs ditching. Not emergency, but something to keep on our list. Culvert on Polifka Rd was blacktopped last week. Holschbach was working for them and their paving machine broke down, so they dumped blacktop on it, but did not do a very professional job. They will be redoing the work. Shouldering on Rockwood Rd is not done yet either, but should be soon.
Transfer Station – Security System is being sent back. They sent the wrong DVR. Wall on the west side/compactor side is all rotted out.
Constables Report – Dog found, think it was dropped – Q & Shoto Rd, dogs were out, killed a bunch of birds – Q & Shoto Rd, dogs not fed/watered complaint. Went every day for a week before and after work to verify that they were being fed and watered.
Claims 260 – 280 were allowed ordered paid.
Next meeting will be on Monday September 10th.
Motion by Supervisor Propson and seconded by Supervisor Grapentine to adjourn the August meeting.
