Road Supervisors Report: Supervisor Schneider reported he was contacted by the sheriff’s department about some garbage that was dumped in the ditch on 119th St SE  south  of  Alvin Braun's residence. The Brauns were asked to clean up the garbage and bill the township for the expenses. Chairman Selzler said there was garbage left on 66th St SE and he cleaned that up. He also said there needs to be a policy set up on how to deal with this problem at the next meeting. Ken said he will contact Lorin Wolf to see if there would be a possibility he would be willing to be the contact person in the future. Chad had 3 approach permits Thomas & Jessica Upham 1103 Meadow Run Dr.  ck #1126 $25.00, Daniel & Deanna Burgard 1915 Maple Lane  ck # 4544  $25.00 and Dustin Abraham 6605 Eric Ave cash $25.00. There has been questions about Mark Leingang’s oversize approach (80’).  He lives in Beacon Loop on the south side of Hwy 10 & 80th St SE. After discussion it was decided to let Mr. Leingang and the county work this out since 80th St is under Burleigh County authority.

The county has been pulling the gravel up off the side of the road on 22nd St SE and 10 Ave SE. There have been more complaints on 119th St SE about the dust and washboards. Chad will talk to Gene about mag chloride on the road but the downside to mag chloride is wash boarding of the roadway. Chad needs to work with the county to make sure the wash boarding is fixed before any mag chloride is applied to the road.   Chairman Selzler said the fix to the problem is to get the county to take over the road so it could be paved.

New Business: Dan Reis was at the meeting to bring to the boards attention the rocks on the approach on 93rd St SE across from Ken Selzler’s home. The rocks are very sharp and when riding horse people have to go up on the highway to cross, making it very hazardous for everyone. Chairman Selzler said he would check into it and report back @ the July meeting.

There were several bills submitted for payment, WSI insurance premium $250.00 and Shawn Whitney for inspections for May 4th through June 1st $412.58.  After discussion Supervisor Olson made a motion to approve all bills for payment, seconded by Chairman Selzler roll call vote Supervisor Olson yes, Chairman Selzler yes, and motion carried.

 Chairman Selzler asked if there was any further business to discuss being none the meeting was adjourned to reconvene Monday July 6th
