ordinance better.  Motion by Helen Dennis, second by Ronald Barnaby to
approve the proposed changes, motion carried.  Ronald Barnaby
expressed thanks to Lori for providing the various items to the board
early in the month so they would have plenty of time to review
everything, Helen Dennis and Chairman Kinsley agreed.  

Highway/Road Report:  Snow removal equipment has been removed from
equipment and grading of some roads has begun.  With conditions
permitting, ditching work has begun on Old J in non-wetland areas,
this has allowed the sun in and things are drying up nice and looking
good.  Plans are to move to Thornapple Grade next.  Roads are looking
good compared to the past 2 seasons.

A quote was received from Monroe Truck for the Hoist on the KW truck

approve Mary Lou Steel for the Library Board, motion carried.  

The USDA Wildlife control renewal contract has been received, Chairman
Kinsley stated this is basically for beaver damage control; the price
is the same as last year at $650.00.  The board all agree it is a
worthwhile program saving time and costs to the Town for all the
services the program provides.  Motion by Ronald Barnaby, second by
Helen Dennis to approve the renewal contract with USDA Wildlife
control, motion carried.

Regarding Resolution Opposing Property Assessments from municipality
to county control.  The Department of Revenue is proposing changes
from municipal assessments to county assessments that require 100%
assessment of every property every year, which basically means the
Town loses local control and it would be very expensive to the Town.

use opposing this change.  Lori read the information to the audience;
the board is in total agreement with their recommendation, motion by
Helen Dennis, second by Ronald Barnaby to approve the Resolution in

letters to our State representatives regarding the same and expressing
our opposition.

Board Concerns:  Chairman Kinsley stated hed like to advertise for
Blacktop work on a few roads for this year, price quotes only at this
time.  The roads mentioned were Bauer, Ehn, Doak, Simpson and Burlum. 
Helen Dennis also mentioned our town hall parking lot is in need of
work, it appears to be sinking in areas.  Ronald Barnaby spoke to the
crew this week about temporary repairs to the parking lot to be done
prior to the April election and then doing something more permanent
later this summer, they will work on it before Election Day.    

Due to conflicts with County Public hearing dates, we will need to
change our meeting dates back to the 2nd Wednesday of the month
beginning in April.  Our next meeting will be held April 8, 2015.  

Motion by Ronald Barnaby, second by Helen Dennis to adjourn the
meeting, motion carried.
