Old Business – A. There were no county attendees for the discussion on County Road W.  Dennis was on a tour with the county highway committee. During that tour, the county thought that they would be able to repair the road in small segments.  The county invited the town board to attend the highway committee meeting on September 3rd at 3:30pm.  At least one of our town board members will attempt to attend.

New Business- A. Scott reported on the last fire meeting.  They will be purchasing new jackets for the firefighters.  Fire dues will remain the same for the next year.


                       B. Glenn reported on the last ambulance meeting.  The ambulance has been looking at establishing its own house to keep the ambulances, and for on call responders to stay.  The estimates to construct were costly, and they’ve decided to not proceed with the building at this time.  They are also looking at possibly purchasing a new ambulance and may combine with another ambulance department to reduce costs.


All bills paid and approved.
