October 6, 2009  Regular Meeting

                                                                                   

The Crow Wing Township Board of Supervisors held its Regular Meeting on Tuesday, October 6, 2009 at 7:00 p.m. at the Crow Wing Town Hall.  Present were Chairman Greg Smith, Supervisors Mark Platta and Dave Schultz, Clerk Virginia Rogers, Treasurer Susan Goodew and those on the attached public roster.

 

There were 400 pair of gopher feet presented by Tom Fleischhacker for bounty.

 

JACKSON STREET

 

The petition to vacate Jackson Street was considered. Greg asked Jim and Zack Jackson if they had taken care of things with CGI in regard to their lot split. Zack cited the ordinance stating that he believes that their subdivision may not require going through planning and zoning for approval. CGI had sent a letter to them on September 1, 2009, but Zack said they did not receive it. A copy of the letter was provided to them at the meeting. Discussion followed regarding whether or not the lot split would be recognized by the township. It was decided that the Planning Commission should determine whether or not the lot split falls under the metes and bounds requirements of the ordinance.

 

5-YEAR ROAD PLAN

 

The five year road plan was considered. The following items were suggested as a basis for starting the plan: paving 80th Street and 50th Ave (N) (2010), brush cutting (2010 or 2011), correcting steep slopes on Cook Road, gravelling Roscoe Road, 40th Ave and Sweet Road and resurfacing of roads that require it such as Wetherbee and Cook as needed. For other paved roads crack filling would be done again in 2011 and following every other year, with patching done as needed.

 

BIG WOODS TIMBER

 

Brad shared information on the Big Woods Timber violations. He gave a brief history of the problems and noted that the owners say they are working at improving the property. There is currently a violation of the Conditional Use Permit. A site visit was made on October 1, 2009. It was determined that there are 22 shrubs that have not been planted and final erosion control has not been completed. As requested by the Town Board, the process of pulling the permit and closing the business down has been started. The owners indicated some confusion on the deadline date. They have since planted 22 shrubs and have stated that they have a contractor lined up to complete the erosion control. Roy Pokavich asked about the possibility of arsenic in the older treated lumber being processed. Brad stated that most of the wood there is not treated lumber, but that there is some older painted lumber there. The topic will be discussed in detail at the October 13th Planning Commission meeting and the owners will be invited to attend.

 

The minutes of the September 29, 2009 Regular Meeting were read. Mark added that Ginny had shared information from the NaTaT conference in Washington DC. Dave made a motion to accept the minutes with that addition. The motion was seconded by Mark and carried by unanimous vote.

 

Dave gave the road report. Joshua Road and 80th Street should have a stop sign. Depot Street is finished and Dave gave a summary of street signs that have been installed. Work on 50th Ave and 80th Street is completed.

 

Correspondence was reviewed and claims were approved and paid.

 

The meeting was adjourned at 9:30 p.m. by general consent.
