Public Input:  A.


Old Business: A. Salt/Sand shed: Simon has yet to make contact with Dave Wondra at the Village of Frederic; Tom Crane printed out lot lines for the current shed along the Boyer property.  Currently appears to be right on the edge of the driveway turn around.  The town will look into further.

B.  John Struck presented many options for the long arm mower.  The used one discussed at the last meeting is no longer a viable option as it was too light for our use.  The board will look into financing options and make a final decision at the September meeting.
