The roads will have to dry out before any real work can be done and gravel added. In talking with Marcus Hall, he said the county is behind this year weather and a personnel shortage are the major reasons for the road problems this spring.

Weed Board Report: Weed Board Member Mauch said he had been out checking for leafy spurge and he did not find much in the township. His recommendation was to not have Fertilawn spray and he would get Milestone from the county and use his sprayer to do the spraying. He felt there was not enough spurge in the township to justify the cost.

Zoning Board Report: Chairman Springer asked Mr. Hoerer if he had any updates on his property on 9005 Lincoln Rd. He said he is disabled and was having a hard time moving things. He also stated he was operating a salvage business out of his home. Another point he made was he moved to the country so he could do what he wanted with his property. He was reminded he was living in a residential area and the township had ordinances against have junk and excess vehicles on his property. Chairman Springer reminded Mr. Hoerer that there are rules he needs to follow, and he needs to be respectful of his neighbors. He also stated the township has been patient with him in the past. Since he has chosen not to work with the board, the board will pursue what ever avenue available to get the matter settled.

Chairman Springer said he had gotten some information from the Bismarck Planning & Zoning Department regarding Morton Subdivision south of Hwy 10 and east of 52nd St SE. The Bismarck Planning and Zoning meeting will be June 26th and he is planning on attending and will report back @ the July meeting.

Other Business: Clerk Meidinger asked if she could take one of the old laptops home to move old floppy disks to usb sticks. Chairman Springer said he saw no problem with her using the old laptops.

48th Ave SE approach update Dusty Hasper was at the meeting an said he is not going to use the 48th Ave SE section line approach to access his new home. In talking with Marcus Hall his property is in 2 sections with 2 addresses. He will use the section line approach for the shop which will have the 5100 93rd St SE address (Paul Zent’s old address). The new house will have the approach south of the shop and its address will be 5206 93rd St SE. Mr. Hasper asked if he could put the road closed sign back up and the board agreed the road is closed due to damage in the back end of the section line.

Arnold Scheive update: Chairman Springer said he had done some checking about the section line dispute and he found out that as long as there is 33’ on the section line so a vehicle can pass that meets the requirements of the law so there is no issue since there is 33’ on either side of the fence. Since both parties are at times in violation the township will consider this issue closed and will not discuss the section line further.

Chairman Springer asked if there was any other business to discuss being none, he adjourned the meeting @ 8:28 PM

Respectfully Submitted
