The Board discussed organizing a Group Meeting to discuss RECREATIONAL ACTIVITIES in the Town of Hunter.  There should be one person per group such as law enforcement, snowmobile alliance, ATV alliance, Resort Association, etc.  The Board will make a list of the groups they feel should be included and discuss it at the July meeting.  Laura will talk to Tim Davidson to possibly head the group meeting.

During the budget workshop last year, it had been decided to reconstruct Tiger Musky Lane.  That decision was changed to just do part of the reconstruction this year which includes culvert replacement, remove rocks, ditching and possible gravel.  The remainder of the project will be done in 2023.  That leaves room to CRACK SEAL 11 ROADS in 2022.  The Clerk will put the bid add in the June 22 and 29 Sawyer County Record.

MOTION: Moved by Ryan; 2nd Dier to APPROVE PAYMENT OF DISBURSEMENTS AND PAYROLL for checks #17500 to #17515, electronic payments and account transfers from 05/12/2022 to 06/08/2022 for a total expenditure of $25,340.52; all in favor; motion carried.
