PLANNING & ZONING 

BIG WOOD TIMBER

Mike Nicklaus was present to represent Big Wood Timber. He indicated that he has been told that the twelve additional trees that were to be planted are in. Greg has stopped by and verified that the piles required to be moved have been moved. He did not see twelve new trees in place. Mike said that he will check into it and make sure they there and he will make certain that these areas are maintained. It was determined that the property is not in violation at this point if the trees have been planted as required.

 

Three training sessions had been suggested by the Planning Commission as most applicable to the township. The dates they are offered are July 7th, July 21st and August 18th.   Greg made a motion to send Linda and Zack to those three sessions. The motion was seconded by Dave and carried by unanimous vote.

 

BACHMAN WILDERNESS ACRES

The roads in the Bachman plat were discussed. Dave had met with Dale DeRosier and he bid a $2700 addition to the turnaround on Black Bear Trail to make it large enough for the snow plow. Mark stated a concern that the road is platted beyond this area, but has not been constructed. It was determined that if the road is accepted by the township, the description will have to be written to clearly show that the platted right of way beyond the end of the road is not being assumed by the township. Discussion followed regarding who will pay the costs for widening the turnaround, filling the cracks and mowing. Dave was asked to get bids for the entire project and bring them back to the July 13th meeting.

 

PARK - HORSEHOE PITS, PLAYGROUND SET

 

Mark made a motion to approve the two proposals from HyTec construction for the horseshoe pits in an amount not to exceed $4780 and the installation of the playground set and landscape boundary, in an amount not to exceed $4280. The motion was seconded by Greg and carried by unanimous vote.

 

Mark made a motion to approve the extension of the collection of property taxes on the Mills Property that was annexed into the city of Brainerd. The dedication of property taxes from this parcel to  park development on this same property has a proposed

                                                                                                                                                                     

Extension of an additional five years. Greg seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote. Mark mentioned the large piles of debris from the timber clearing on the Mills property. It was decided that he should look further into the requirements regarding this.

 

Carol Wermter had expressed concern about addressing and had sent an email reporting several people having mentioned to her that they had fire or ambulance calls where there was considerable difficulty in locating them. Kathy Karl at the Surveyor’s Office is looking into this and will let us know what she finds.

 

It was also noted that the County Commissioners voted to eliminate the Surveyor’s Department and cut the four staff positions there with a two week notice. Phil Trusty had been contacted by both Greg and Ginny, but had not responded. We will contact him again and ask him to attend a Town Board meeting so we can ask any questions that we have. It was noted that the Surveyor’s Office has been one of the easiest departments in the county to work with.

 

Jim Nix was present to report that Donny Girard on Robin Street has been burning garbage on his property. He has reported it to the Sheriff’s Department and the DNR. He also mentioned a couple of trees down that need to be removed.

 

The minutes of the June 8th and June 16th meetings were reviewed. Dave made a motion to accept the minutes as written. The motion was second by Greg and carried by unanimous vote.

 

Correspondence was reviewed and payroll was reviewed and approved.

 

The meeting adjourned by general consent at 8:00 p.m.
