This is to be spent between Sawyer County and LOC jointly. They again will be getting $100,000 in July and if it's not spent, it would be nice, if it could be used for walking and bike trails from County "B" to New Post. gaiash would like to see us getting a pilot program and apply for a Planning Grant together. A discussion on "float plane usage" and the transferring of invasive species and what it's doing to our waters now and in the future. Section 3.9, Transportation Goals, Objectives, Actions, Policies, and Programs will be done when we complete the Transportation section.
Utilities section was discussed and will have to be checked to see how many we have in Hunter Township. Again we will be looking at Edgewater and the LCO Plan's and seeing what utilities the town of New Post has. All other items have been looked at great length and will be discussed further.
