Building Inspector’s Report – 4 permits were written; one pole barn, an addition to a garage, shelter and a new home at 5203 66th Street.

Road Supervisor’s Report:  Road is completed on Omar. Issue is that 16 semi-truck loads of gravel was emplaced instead of 10 as was estimated; bill is $11500 instead of the estimated $4300.  A request for a yield sign on Erik Ave has been submitted. Francis Place needs gravel; it was suggested that re-milled asphalt be used.  T & R contracting can haul the gravel, if gravel is chosen.  Estimated cost is $275 per ton.  Francis Place road would take about 15 to 16 tons plus $50 per load for trucking.  Cost is $3 per ton more than gravel to use re-milled asphalt. Northern Improvement does not sell class 5 however Knife River does sell class 5.

Supervisor Olson made a motion to gravel Francis Place using which ever material -gravel or re-milled asphalt-is cheapest.  Supervisor Selzler seconded the motion.  Supervisors Olson and Selzler and Chairman Zent approved.  Motion carried.

Supervisor Selzler made a motion to pay Hartze Construction Co. for building the road on Omar and Houston Engineering for re-setting the survey pins. Supervisor Olson seconded the motion.  Supervisors Olson and Selzler and Chairman Zent all approved. Motioned carried.

Easements for new road were signed by Chad Schneider, Russ Meyer, Dorris Yarbrough, Dustin Abraham, and Nathan Jenner and will be filed.

Ditches need to be seeded alongside the road. It will be about 2.5 acres which equates to about 250 pounds of seed for the ditch.  Supervisor Selzler made a motion to seed the ditches using Odell Hagel Construction for the seeding.  Supervisor Olson seconded the motion.  Supervisors Olson, Selzler and Chairman Zent all approved.  Motioned carried.

Citizen of Apple Creek Township, Cyndy Mittenger would like Dorris Yarborough to make the first payment for the road that now gives him access to his property as a show of good faith.  The township board indicated that a permit for Mr. Yarborough would not be granted until the payment for the road had been made.   Township board needs a list of people that property with property adjacent to the the road  so that bills can be sent for them to pay their portion of the cost.
