Highway/Road Report: Currently they are ditching on Wiley Road and Old 70, moving on to Petit Road and Everson Road then to Slattery Road, then Wilderness Bay Road Corner and then West Lane. Audience member Chuck Kelley asked if some ditching could be done by his place. The vegetation was cut down and now the water flows more quickly, Helen Dennis responded that she and the crew had looked at it and west of the culvert they can ditch it some, but not real deep as the water would then run into the lake which cannot happen. They will be working on it. Unfinished Business: Regarding opening Cty Hwy W from Lake Winter Road to Slattery Road, Steve Koosman representing the ATV club called this week stating he spoke with Gary Gedart and they are on the County meeting agenda for September 10, 2014 and he will report back to us regarding the outcome.

Board Concerns: Chairman Kinsley commented that our crew is getting a lot done considering the weather conditions we’ve experienced. He also mentioned that we have allowed for gravel crushing in our budget and spoke with Dave Martin who feels we do not need to crush any gravel at our shop, but we do have the opportunity to crush from Strouf’s pit. Chairman Kinsley stated in his opinion he feels we should take advantage of it since gravel is getting hard to find. The board agreed and Ron Barnaby added the gravel from that pit is very good gravel. The price would be $1.00 per yard for stumpage which is in line and we would need 6,000 to 7,000 yards. . Since it is under $25,000 we do not have to bid it out so he asked the board if they were in favor of this, all were in agreement, Chairman Kinsley will talk to Mike Petrie regarding it. Chairman Kinsley will also contact the crack sealing company to check the status for our work to be done. Chairman Kinsley mentioned it seems the 3rd Wednesday of the month is working better for our meetings; the board agreed and set the next monthly meeting date for September 17, 2014. With no further business to discuss, motion by Ronald Barnaby, second by Helen Dennis to adjourn, motion carried, meeting adjourned. Lori Van Winkle, Clerk August 28, 2014.
