Called Tim Wyss about the cemetery plot. The lady that owns it is not interested in selling it to any individual. She wants it to go to an organization that will not be selling it. Rich will continue talking with Tim to get updates.

Clerk-Treasurer Report: Wondering if I can pull $25,000 from the Machinery Account so I can pay all the road costs, then in November when we get the shared revenue, pay it back. Action was approved by B. Anderson, 2nd by S. Nielsen. Approved.
Fire/Ambulance Committee Reports: Plan Commission-new schedule of fees was made and handed out to put in our binders. Town Board will discuss fees for the various ordinances at the November meeting.
Fire/Ambulance: Bob and Rich attended the Fire Meeting. There were quite a few people from the various towns in attendance. Both guys thought the meeting went well, we got a budget for year 2019 for both Fire and Ambulance.
New Business: Discussion on options for financing for Fire Dept. We have a signed contract with the fire district so if we pull out we are still liable for our share of costs. Rich will call a township attorney to see what our options are as far as what is the best way for our township to borrow/levy the costs of our portion of the new fire building. As of right now, we have no prices to go on for the new building. We will discuss further at the November meeting.
Public Comment: Some discussion on truck tires.
Motion to adjourn meeting was made by B. Anderson, 2nd by R. Monn. Approved.
