Road Report:

Consider/Take Action re: Statz Farms, T Statz – installation of irrigation tubing under roads Twin Lane & Berlin: T Statz inquired as to what permits would be needed to install under the road irrigation tubing to their fields.  He described the fields that the proposed irrigation tubing would go to and the installation process.  After a short discussion the board instructed W Dorshorst to treat the proposed sites like a driveway permit; $50 permit fee with $1000 escrow.  T Statz was asked to contact W Dorshorst when they know the exact site.  W Dorshorst will give T Statz the specific measurements required by the town at that time. No action needed.
