Darryl discussed placement of the current riding lawnmower used for the town hall and cemeteries. Currently Bob and Marilyn Maile cut the lawn at both cemeteries and at the town hall. Bob keeps the riding lawn mower at his residence on his trailer, parked in his shed for ease of use, maintenance and time. Darryl would like the lawn mower to be housed at the town hall so he can cut the ditches at the town hall. For the last 6 years Darryl has been using his lawn mower to cut the ditches. MSC by Gibler/Fischer to approve moving the lawn mower back to the municipal building permanently. Maile abstained from voting. Bob will have full access to the municipal building.
Darryl reported that the boom mower head needs repairs at a cost of $2,500. This will be discussed at the budget meeting in October.
Gordon Speirs utilizes a generator off of Keuer Road with unmarked electrical cords running through the culvert under Keuer Road. While cutting the ditch, Darryl cut the cords with the mower.
Old business: Supervisor Fischer talked with Commissioner Mike Berken from FJ Utilities regarding the installation of a culvert for Gordon Speirs on Rusch Road. FJ Utilities will pay for the culvert. The culvert would be used for field work with the intention of eliminating travel on the Forest Junction Utilities road to the lagoons by Mr. Spiers. Mike is working with their attorney to draft a letter to Mr. Speirs stating that any damage done to the roads would be Gordon’s financial responsibility. The town has the culvert and will install. Darryl will wait until Mike gets the letter signed from Gordon before installing.

MSC by Fischer/Gibler to adjourn the meeting @ 8:45 pm.
