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.

 

Jackson Street

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.

 

70th Avenue

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.

 

Nature Path

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.

 

Vandalism

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.

 

Depot Street

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.


The minutes of the July 28th regular meeting were read. It was noted that Mark Platta's name was omitted, but that he was present at the meeting. Greg made a motion to approve the minutes as read, with that change noted. The motion was seconded by Dave and carried by unanimous vote.

 

Dave gave the road report.

 

The meeting was recessed at 9:05 p.m. to be reconvened on Tuesday, August 18, 2009 at 7:30 p.m.
