Road Supervisor’s Report: Supervisor Wolf reported the county will not mow the ditch tops this summer because of the added responsibilities the county is experiencing due to the flooding. It will be up to the township to make sure the ditch tops are mowed. There will be a notice on the web page informing the township residents that they should mow their ditch tops this year. The township will look at contracting out the mowing of the ditch tops that are not mowed. Graveling and blading will be late this year also.

Rodney Ness has not gotten back to Supervisor Wolf about the water problem in Apple Meadows.

There has not been a decision on the culvert on 80th & Apple Creek Road and what should be done. There most likely will be no help from the Burleigh County Water Board. This item will be discussed further at the next meeting.

Chairman Olson said he had gotten a letter from FEMA regarding road damage from the flooding. It was determined to see if the township could get funds for Northgate, 80th & 106th. Chairman Olson and Supervisor Wolf will work on that.

Supervisor Zent thanked Supervisor Wolf for the great job he has done for the township and asked if he (Supervisor Wolf) would stay until a replacement can be found. Supervisor Wolf said he would stay until his replacement is hired. There will be an ad in the tribune and something will be put on the web page. The board hopes to fill the position in August.

Zoning Board Report: No report from the board. The new Zoning Regulations were signed and a copy will be taken to the auditor’s office for their file.

Supervisor Zent also attended the Bismarck Planning Meeting on June 22nd and at that meeting Copper Ridge 3rd Subdivision was approved.
