March 23, 2010 Regular Meeting
The Crow Wing Township
Board of Supervisors held its Regular Meeting on Tuesday, March 23, 2010 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 roster.
Greg called the
meeting to order.
There were no gopher
feet presented for bounty.
Dale and Nancy Rademacher
were present to request that the township take over Home Place Drive in Bobby Lee Acres. It was determined that they haven’t
quite met the 2/3 development requirement. Discussion followed. The current economic situation was considered and the lack
of development. It is likely that the plat will remain at this percentage for some time.
The resolution regarding
township maintenance of platted roads within the township was considered. Mark made a motion amend the resolution to read
“in addition to the minimum requirements set forth above, a minimum of two-thirds (2/3) of the abutting property serviced
by a proposed road must be developed; that is, contain a residential home and/or business activity for consideration, ready
for occupancy, thereby justifying public maintenance. In determing the 2/3 requirement any fraction of a number shall be rounded
down to the nearest whole number.” The motion was seconded by Dave and carried by unanimous vote.
Brad Arnold gave
the road report. He stated his appreciation of a supervisor sitting on the Planning Commission. He discussed the situation
with Big Wood and the smoke coming from their outdoor boiler system. The improvement has been minimal. The smoke still comes
down into neighboring yards. Mark Strobel was present to notify the board that the smoke is still in his yard and is of varying
colors. The issue will be discussed at the April 12th Planning Commission Meeting. Ginny was asked to notify Big
Wood that they need to submit their log of the attempts to improve the smoke situation and also should clarifying where they
are intending to place the 180’ of fencing they have proposed. Brad’s draft of the job description for Planning
Commission members were reviewed and found to be adequate. He will share those requirements at the April 6th meeting.
Brad also shared information on the proposed contract with CGI for the coming year.
Dave asked about
attempting to put a pipe in the beaver dam on Wetherbee Road to drain the water out. He received approval to do so. He also
asked about looking into renting a tractor and mower for ditch mowing. He was asked to bring information about availability
to the next meeting. Dave also asked about getting bids for 50th Ave and 80th Street. He was asked to
get a proposal for each job separately and also one combined price.
