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

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

Slaby reported on the Special Fire AdHoc meeting. The Town of Harmony is looking to join Phillips Fire Department with the rising cost of the Catawba Fire Department. However, Catawba can’t sustain the fire department alone so it was encouraged that Harmony, Catawba, Kennan, and Georgetown join together. The meeting was tabled to see if a better plan can be worked out.

There was discussion that Granberg is crushing gravel in the Skinner Creek Pit and Rob Grigsby will check on the quality of the gravel. Slaby made a motion to have Granberg gravel Up River Road with 1500 yds of crushed gravel at $12.25 per yd if it looks acceptable. Seconded by Boushon. Carried.

Motion was made by Galloway to buy the remaining crushed gravel of 2000 yds from Samuel’s Pit for $7.25 per yd as a stockpile. Seconded by Boushon. Carried.

There was a motion by Galloway/Boushon to investigate crushing 10,000 yds of gravel for 2023. Carried.

Galloway shared that a resident showed concern about the Rocky Carrie Park property lines and whether the new owners next to it have to cross into the park to get to the road. There seems to be confusion on where the southwest boundary line is. Motion by Galloway/Boushon to have Rocky Carrie & Crane Chase Park properties surveyed to find the corner posts. Carried.

Galloway shared there is concern about the dumpster filling up with building materials. After some discussion on options, the topic was tabled for now.

The town continues to seek assistance from the county sheriff’s office with enforcing ordinances especially with the no parking ordinance. Galloway mentioned making some changes to the current no parking ordinance on town roads and gave the board a copy of suggested changes to be discussed next month.

There was discussion about the improper installation of fiber optic by Telcom which resulted in damage to the town roads and culverts. Invoices have been sent to Tjader & Highstrom, who have been contracted by Norvado, for materials we need to make repairs and for some work we have already done. The Town of Flambeau and Guy Folsom with Norvado have not had any responses from Tjader & Highstrom or Telcom on these issues. The town board has agreed to pass these invoices directly onto Norvado.

Public Comment – none

Motion by Galloway/Boushon to adjourn. Carried.

Meeting adjourned at 8:45 pm.
