Slaby gave a briefing on the Fire Ad Hoc meeting. The PPE(Personal Protective Equipment such as protective clothing, helmets, and goggles) needs to be replaced every 10 years leaving about 30 sets of clothing needing to be replaced. An ordinance was also established to allow the fire department to do yearly safety checks with the towns.

Slaby commented that the ambulance service continues to look for new people to come on board as EMTs. There is opportunity for first responders to become EMTs as well. One challenge for the department is receiving a call and then the person refuses to take the ambulance, resulting in no pay for the service.

An additional motion was made by Lamoreaux to accept the chip seal bid from Scott Construction to double seal coat Lake Road at $49,298 and single/double seal coat a portion of South Fork Road at $27,433. Seconded by Boushon. Carried.

There were a couple road updates. First, there was a motion by Slaby, seconded by Boushon, to continue the regular maintenance of the chip seal on Price Lake Road for this year but in the near future, the chip seal will be removed and replaced with gravel in response to complaints about its condition. Carried. Also, Rob Grigsby shared an update on Popple Hill Road. An unacceptable culvert was installed and a letter will need to be sent to the landowner to correct the issue. Third, a motion was made by Slaby to look into security cameras to monitor areas in the township. Seconded by Boushon. Carried.

The school committee had mentioned that the roof was leaking and wanted to see if the road crew could take a look at it to see if they could fix it.

There was a discussion on snowplowing private driveways. Slaby made a motion to plow private driveways this year with an increase to $50 for the first 30 minutes and an additional $35 over 30 minutes. Seconded by Boushon. All in favor, motion carried.
