Brenda Hildebrand gave a report on Amor Park. She had purchased an antique spring horse for the playground. A new one was $800-$1200 and this was $150.00 but needed to be painted. There was money donated for this. The cement picnic tables are in bad shape; some of the legs are cracked and could break. She had looked at the price of replacing them with metal framed and coated tables. Six tables would be needed. The cost ranged from $750 -$900/table. Roberts made a motion to get all six tables. It was seconded by Dietz and carried. The clerk will look for the best price. It was also discussed about a budget to be set at the annual meeting for the park. This is to help with replacing the playground equipment and improvements that are needed in the future. She also took the old well pump into 59 finishing to have it powder coated and it will be placed in the flower garden that is the old well.
With no further business to discuss the meeting was adjourned at 7:56 pm.

Brenda Hildebrand, Twp Clerk
