A discussion followed and Chairman Nehring said he would call and talk to Mr. Grabinger about the vehicles on the right of way and a letter will also be sent asking them to move the vehicles. Supervisor Selzler said the township will work with them about the road later, right now the most important issue is getting the vehicles off the right of way. Supervisor Selzler asked who will be responsible for the road. If the township had jurisdiction of the road it would have to be up to county specs. The board agreed there must be more discussion on this topic. But the vehicles on the right of way will be the 1st item to deal with. Brandon Schnook said Lincoln will work with ACT to come to an agreement regarding the road.

Chairman Nehring said the township has sent letter to Mr. Hoerer to clean up the property; Mr. Hoerer has been to a meeting stating he will clean up the property but not much has been done. The Health Department has been called and the township does not know what is being done on that end. Right now the township doesn’t have much they can do.
