ROAD REPORT – the 2006 Ford radio is no longer receiving and is not worth repairing according to Com-Tech of Rice Lake. Our Radios are outdated and will soon be illegal to use. It will be necessary to purchase a narrow band radio for all trucks. The drivers side seat belt of the 2006 Ford was repaired; Town roads are in good driving condition; road bans go on March 15, 2011.
Lee Wilmsen will be talking to the County to find out how they clean their trucks to be sure we are cleaning ours properly. The Board thought it would be beneficial to add a comment in the tax payer yearly letter to be sure large truck owners top off their tanks before the road bans go into affect.
GUEST SPEAKER, DAN LIEF discussed the new law regarding narrow band radios for our trucks. We do not have to purchase new radios until 2012. The Board decided to check the finances and then decide when we will purchase them.
