Old Business – The informational Sewer meeting went well again. There were about 35 people in attendance. There have been about 11 total persons interested in becoming members of a steering committee.
PPSSD - On Thursday USA will be back in the area to do inspections on the grinder stations where there have been settling issues. Woodenfrog road needs more work done. A gate will be purchased to cut off access to the other road to the west mound.
Roads & Trails – Supervisor Stegmeir will look into a sign (Dead End) for the Puck’s Point Rd.
Community Building/Town Hall – Mesabi Sign Co. was contacted and they came here and moved the sign some but it would take more work and more money to have it moved any further. The township has decided they don’t want to put any more money into this. People can drive into the parking lot and read the sign if they need to.
Other – None
NEW BUSINESS – The November township meeting will be changed to Wednesday, November 7th due to elections being on the 6th which is our regular meeting day.
