Crysta Hanson asked the board to approve chloride treatment to the roads again this year. She asked why the Twin Lake property owners weren’t billed last year for treatment. Treasurer was unaware that they had gotten treatment because they were not on the list she received. She will send out bills this month. If they are unpaid then they will not get the treatment again until bill is paid Hanson will contact the same people and give a list to the treasurer of who wants the treatment and how much they owe. It will be the same as last year, property owners will pay ½ of the cost. No motion was made.
