Kay Ryan made a motion to approve the Treasures report as presented; 2nd Lee Wilmsen; motion carried.
ROAD REPORT – Randy Dennis has completed the blacktop patches on River, Tiger Musky, Conger and Gardner Roads; crack sealing is complete; the International had recalls and service work done; mowing and brushing has been started; pot holes will be filled on Town roads.
Dave Campbell from the FORESTERY SERVICE was present to address our request for gravel for Venison Creek Road and a culvert on Forest Road 304.  The Forest Service employees are booked for work until mid-October, but we could check the pit to see if they have what we need for the road.  They would charge the Town 30¢ per cubic yard reclamation fee to be applied in a Trust Fund.  When the pit is used up the Trust Fund money goes back into the Forestry Service.
They will also supply culverts at no charge if we supply the installation work.
Dave cannot guarantee that he can provide man power to deliver the gravel next year.  It all depends on their work load which will be discussed after October.  The Board has not decided on the gravel for this year.
Lee Wilmsen worked up SNOWPLOW COST ANALYSIS which includes truck purchase, depreciation, fuel, repairs and wages.  He found that our present driveway plow contract cost of $120 does not cover all the costs and recommended an increase.  The State Statues say the contract fees must cover all costs for snowplowing driveways.  Lee Wilmsen made a motion to increase driveway Snowplow Contracts from $120 to $180; 2nd Kay Ryan; motion carried.
A BARTENDER LICENSE FOR LISA JENKINS was approved on a motion from Kay Ryan; 2nd Lee Wilmsen; motion carried.
The EMPLOYEE REVIEW date was set form 09/15/2015 at 7:00 a.m.
The BUDGET WORKSHOP date was set for 10/21/2015 at 4:00 p.m.
Laura Rusk made a motion to APPROVE PAYMENT OF BILLS AND PAYROLL for checks #15938 to #15960 from 08/13/2015 to 09/09/2015 for a total expenditure of $25,012.32; 2nd Lee Wilmsen; motion carried.
