June 14, 2011 Township Board Meeting

Present:  Mark Freeman, Scott Mead, Rick Fry, Keith Stoneburner

Absent: April Smitke

Next meeting set for July 12, 2011

Minutes from the May 10, 2011 meeting read and approved

Old business:

Follow up discussion on the Highway 44 road speed in the vicinity of the fire hall. The county feels that the current speed limit of 55 mph is correct and there is no need to post a slower speed.

New Business:

Motion was made by Supervisor Fry to sell the timber off the Township owned property with any proceeds going to replanting and capping of the seedlings. Motion approved unanimously.

Discussion of the high speed internet and that issue is still in the infant stage. A survey is needed to try and establish how many users desire the high-speed connection. Cost can be a factor.

Dan Dexter has authored a petition requesting a EAW, Environmental Assessment Worksheet, regarding the public access on Big Pequaywan Lake.
