Township roads:  Supervisor Zent said the township is anticipating increased income from building permits in the upcoming year and the board would like to direct that increased income into more gravel on township roads.  He said the board would like to look at applying recycled asphalt on subdivision roads.  He also said the board is intending to contract with private companies to haul gravel.

Weed control:  Supervisor Zent mentioned that if we have a dry summer, we may need to acquire a product called milestone to treat weeds in the township.  Supervisor Selzler indicated that there is a cost-share program with the county for township residents to purchase the milestone product and he encouraged residents to contact the county extension office for more information.
