Some of the Twin Bay residents were present to discuss the CONSTUCTION OF TWIN BAY ROAD. Len discussed 3 options which were: the Town will turn the road back to the responsibility of the residence living on the road; construct 22 feet from the center line of the road; go ahead with the proper construction of 33 feet from the center of the road. Gene said the shoulder could only be a foot on each side and further ditching would cause a problem. Lee Wilmsen suggested a 3 foot shoulder and a 4 foot ditch. Several of the towns people made comments and it was agreed that they do not want it blacktopped and just continue brushing as usual.
