On a request from Treeland Resorts, Len Eckerly made a motion to reduce the SPEED LIMIT ON TRELAND AND PINES ROAD from 25 to 15 mph; 2nd Lee Wilmsen; motion carried.

Treeland Resorts requested GOLF CART TRAVEL ON PINES ROAD for their RV park guests. This would allow the guests to cross straight across County Road B from the RV Park. Len Eckerly checked with WTA and was told that Golf Cart travel is not allowed on Town roads. He suggested to create a new path on their property and Harold Treland said they already have one, but it is 100 yards from where people would cross from the Park. Doug Kurtzweil suggested that the town vacate the Pines Road so Treeland’s can use the road as they see fit. Len made a motion to table the golf cart request to a later date in order to research the option of turning Pines Road over to Treeland Resorts; 2nd Laura Rusk; motion carried.
