August 4, 2009 Regular Meeting
The Crow Wing Township Board of
Supervisors held its Regular Meeting on Tuesday, August 4, 2009 at 7:00 p.m. at the Crow Wing Town Hall. Present were Chairman Greg Smith, Supervisor Dave Schultz, Clerk Virginia Rogers, Treasurer Susan Goodew
and those on the attached public roster.
There were no gopher bounties claimed.
A second petition requesting that
Jackson Street be vacated had been received. The petition was determined to be valid. A public hearing was set for Tuesday
August 25, 2009 at 6:30 p.m.
Jenny Grams has requested that speed limit be put in place on 70th Avenue, as well as children at play signs. Discussion
followed. It was determined that the speed limit is already at 30 m.p.h., posted further down, the new rural residential speed
limit has been changed to 35 m.p.h. and there seems to be no reason that a sign in this area could not be installed. It was
decided that the road will be posted at 35 m.p.h.
The roads in the Plat of Nature
Path were discussed. It was determined that, while there may be some issues to resolve with Tri-City Paving on the shouldering,
the roads are finished and ready for acceptance. Greg made a motion to adopt Resolution #2009-10, which is attached to these
minutes. The motion was seconded by Dave and passed by unanimous vote. This resolution accepts the roads in the plat of Nature
Path for township maintenance.
It was determined that the meeting
will be reconvened for the purpose of working on the five-year road plan, in order to allow adequate time. It was also decided
that Dave should gather information on mowing for next year and that bidding documents for mowing might be a good idea.
Randy informed the board that the
new outlet covers at the park have been broken off. He found a couple of them in the ditch. He is leaving the power to the
outlets unless they are needed.
Mike Eloranta, 10253 Depot Street,
requested the gravelling and maybe paving be provided on the unpaved portion of his street. It was decided that gravel should
be provided. Paving will be discussed at a later meeting.
The minutes of the July 28th Public
Hearing were read. Zack Jackson requested that the minutes be changed to remove the statement that no one other than the property
owners use the airstrip. It was changed to read "It was determined that the airstrip is private, except in the event of an
emergency landing.” Dave made a motion to accept the minutes as read with that change. The motion was seconded by Greg
and carried by unanimous vote.
