Old business:

 

Board Chair Wayne Olson was present with Earl Molin. They explained about testing roads for clay, sand, and rock content to make the best road mixture before dust control is applied. Mr. Molin stated he could test all twenty-seven miles of Royalton Township's Roads for $1620.00. He takes about 35 pounds of road gravel per mile, tests it and reports what needs to be added before dust control is applied. The planning commission will discuss how much money could be saved in grading costs by doing dust control on the roads. Member Schneider will contact Pokegama Township Clerk to discuss the figures Pokegama has on the grading savings. The town cost figures for grading Royalton roads will need to be done.

 

Building Inspector Marshall Lind has not replied to Zoning Administrator John Kemen about the current building inspector fees.

 

Motion by Member Swanson to pass a resolution recognizing all the years Jenny Peters devoted to the township, second by Member Schlaeger, motion carried unanimously.
