Old Business –
PPSSD - Supervisor Stegmeir reported that the township received the service fee funds from the county but was short one property owner. The system shut down is still scheduled to happen in the near future. We have not received our contract back from Brian at Septic Check yet. For this winter shut down period we will be paying $500.00 a month to Septic Check. The heater will still be running in the building. Reimbursement checks were sent out to members who have not hooked up yet or removed a hook-up.
Community Sewer - Mia Thibodeau attended the December 6 meeting via conference line to discuss the organization structure. There were only two options that would work in our area. Subordinate Sewer District or Sewer District. The consensus was to go with a Subordinate Sewer District. Area F thinks they could get 50% plus one. Supervisor Stegmeir moved to accept a request for a petition for a subordinate sewer district, and we are committed to seeing it through, seconded by Chairman Tomczak, all voting aye motion carried. The next meeting of the committee will be held on February 7th, 7:00 pm at the Town Hall.
Roads & Trails – Nothing new at this time.
Community Building/Town Hall – Phil Hart fixed the lock on the door to the shed and also looked at the water system and suggested that we install another filter on the system. We would like to have Kolstad/Olson raise the pump up in the well to see of that helps first.
Other – None
NEW BUSINESS – Marlene Tomczak sent in the paperwork to IRRB for a grant for the Kabetogama Fire Department towards the electrical on the Heli pad. The grant was approved in the amount of $16,000.00.
