ADAM KELLEY – CONTRACT:  All the main items (salt/sand) will be the same as last year.  Contract for the 2019/2020 season signed.  He also noticed sand from the lawn washing onto the new blacktop and rip tears from the roller should be fixed now.  Let him know if he can help out.

BUG TUSSEL – INFORMATION:  A search ring (with the Town Hall as a center point) was made.  Letters were sent to landowners whose property fell within that ring.  The proposed tower will be on the Vercimak’s property.  The tower will contain just Bug Tussel internet for now – plenty of room on the tower for cell service later.  If the County approves all plans, does the Town Board need any other information?  Cheryl will receive a final verification email as things proceed.

Painting bids – Joe Walters (lives on Fish Lake) is interested in painting.

Bob Sivick, Greg Erickson & Donna Kalata were present as part of their annual visit of municipality board meetings.  They reminded and informed of many county programs.

FISH LAKE MANAGEMENT DISTRICT – JOHN SIERK:  Due to high water level, a possible No Wake situation may arise.  Shore erosion and property destruction is a high possibility if left as is.  The lake district is sending out a letter with the annual meeting agenda explaining the situation.  John Olson, Land Conservation, assessed the situation.  Lake District members need to vote.  The Town Board agrees to No Wake until further notice.

COUNTY SPRAYING – DISCUSSION, GEORGE NIGH:  Chairman Whalley commented that Beechnut looks great.  Possibly earlier spraying due to too many leaves on trees and brush and spray was not able to penetrate as well last year.  Supervisor Stratton asked about cost – about the same but possibly even less.  Will spray again when board figures out the necessary spots.
