Slaby noted that he received a call about the condition of River Road and gravel will be needed when frost is out. At the intersection of Crane Chase Road and Maple Road, ditching along the field and adding a culvert will help with the water issue. The culvert at the intersection of River, Crane Chase, and South Fork Road is in need of replacement and is scheduled for Tuesday April 13 so residents will be contacted that the road will be closed for a few hours to complete the work needed.

Galloway made a motion to spend $800 or less on a laptop and printer for the town garage. Seconded by Boushon. Carried. Matt Puhl has given recommendations and will set up the laptop once purchased.

Slaby noticed several municipalities that are using packers on their graders and believes it would be beneficial for our gravel roads. He shared quotes for a packer from McCoy and RDO Equipment. A motion was made by Galloway to take the proposal from RDO Equipment and purchase the Handy Hitch Packer for $28,500. Seconded by Boushon. Carried.

Public Comment – Cathy Mueller asked if the township has a policy for unattended possessions in someone’s yard, for example campers, cars, and miscellaneous garbage, in which the town does not.
