to make costs reasonable, using another entity - possibly Little Falls, the possibility of repealing the ordinance, check
animal welfare statute, find out how many dogs were picked up last year and how many calls there were, information on giving
free dog licenses, so the township would have a record of licensed dogs and find out if unlicensed dogs could be euthanized.

with Blue Lakes Disposal to see what their charge would be for a 6 or 8 yard dumpster.
Dave gave the road report. He was
asked to talk to Dale and find out why some of the roads have not been scraped down.
The charges from CGI for sewer permits
