Consider/Take action: Holding tank at 2776 LaRue Fields Lane: Wm Hallman appeared before the town board to request a holding tank for his warehouse building on LaRue Fields Lane.  They would like to add an office in one corner of the existing warehouse and a wash room for the employees.  There was a discussion for various options.  It was determined that the building sits on fill so there is no virgin ground to perk.  Moved by D Yelk, second by V Pogue to approve a holding tank at 2776 LaRue Fields Lane.

Chair, L Updike opened the sealed bids from Struck & Irwin and Scott’s Const.

A representative from Fahrner Asphalt was present at the bid opening. He attended the meeting to ask the board what Fahrner Asphalt needed to do to be able to bid on town projects again.

 Consider/Take action: Amend Weight Limits Ordinance; Implements of Husbandry weight limits and weight limit permits.  The town patrolman and the board discussed how the current ordinance is working and the permits that we issue.  The town patrolman feels that the meeting with the area farmers in March has made a difference.  The farmer or manure hauler is calling with their route plan. At the end of the discussion it was felt that there is no need to change the ordinance but some verbiage on the permit itself may need to be amended. No action taken.
