Clerk read the minutes from the Board Meeting held in January. Motion by Galloway/Boushon to receive and place on file as read. Carried.

Soberg read the Treasurers report for the month of January. Motion by Boushon/Galloway to receive and place on file as presented. Carried.

Slaby reported on the Fire Ad Hoc meeting. With 75 calls in 2021, about a quarter of them were for lift assists which at this point are not charged services so the department is assessing this as the number of calls in this area increase.

After attending the ambulance meeting, Slaby shared a couple things. The Phillips Ambulance is now billing the Prentice department $6800 when they assist calls for Prentice. The new ambulance should be arriving January 2023. Two stair assist beds were purchased for $15,000 with donations and savings. Prentice is considering selling their extra ambulance so Phillips wants to talk with them about sharing the maintenance of it so that its available for both units. Three people recently took the EMT class.

There was discussion on right-of-ways. A certified letter will be sent to the property owner on Crane Chase Road regarding the posts that were placed in the right-of-way by the owner with request to remove them. Popple Hill Road will be addressed at a later time.

Motion by Boushon/Galloway to increase all hourly employee wages and election workers pay by 2.5% per hour. Carried.

Motion by Galloway/Boushon to increase the Clerk/Treasurer salary by $150 per month. Carried.

Public Comment – Ernie Adam shared that Kathy Adam will not be mowing the ball field this year.

Motion by Galloway/Boushon to adjourn. Carried.
