Old business:

Issue of defining the right-of-way of road the last ½ to ¾ mile of West Branch road: Mark does not think the trailer that has been discussed in the past is in the way for snow removal.  A resident offered to discuss the issue with the resident at the end of the road that owns the trailer.

Water level of the lakes:  Information from Amy Loiselle is that the boards appear to be 3” higher than authorized.  She recommended that if water monitoring is to be done, then it should be done at the dam.  Discussion about getting the water dam fixed.

Invasive Knapweed – Discussed attending a St. Louis County meeting and bringing up the issue for feedback.

Zoning line move from the old Pequaywan Rd along with the new Hwy 44 (Pequaywan Rd) built: Letter drafted to give written notice to St Louis County Planning Dept from the township.

Written notice given to the township of local aid to be given to the area of $40 per capita from Iron Range program.
