Old Business –
PPSSD – Collin discussed the idea of advertising the bid package from October 11, 2014 and close the bidding on December 17, 2014. The treatment system and the collection system will be two separate bid packages. The bids will be sent to the SEH Grand Rapids office. The Township board has agreed to all of this. If all goes well with the bidding, the treatment system work could begin construction in the spring or early summer of 2015 and the collection system could begin construction in late summer or early Fall of 2015. Vice Chairman Kiner moved to approve a claim from Environmental Services (Scott Harder) in the amount of $787.50, seconded by Supervisor Stegmeir, motion carried. The JPB would like to hold their September meeting at the new town hall/community center here at Kabetogama on the 24th if the building is available. The schedule shows that the building is available for that date. A pontoon boat has been secured to take the board for a tour of our shoreline after this meeting.
Roads and Trails – Gravel was hauled to State Point Road and graded. A concern about a tree on State Point Road has been brought to the attention of the township board, Supervisor Stegmeir will research this matter and report back to the board at the next township meeting. A snowplow application has been submitted to SLC for this coming winter season. The Clerk will check on the contract with Greg House if this contract covers plowing of the State Point Road for this coming winter season.
Community Center Planning – Vitta’s Excavating will be at the new community center/ town hall site to install the holding tanks and connecting to the line running out of the building the week of September 15th if all goes as planned. Dave Cook has the materials to build the L brackets to hang the vanities up with. Nick Taylor will be contacted to hook up the water. The hood in the kitchen has been wired so that the top enclosure can be installed. Marlene has gotten a sample of the siding and a color has been chosen. The color of the rock has not been decided yet. Dave Cook says he may be able to get the upper siding on and the cement board on the lower portion of the building if the weather holds favorable.
New Business –
The November board meeting date has to be changed because of elections. This will be tabled to the October meeting.
Vice Chairman Kiner moved to adjourn the meeting at 8:15 pm, seconded by Supervisor Stegmeir, motion carried.
