Deb Host voiced her concerns about the snowmobiles making ruts at the end of her driveway. It has been an issue in the past 2 years. There is no way to stop them from using the right of way. She also asked if the township could help with the property owner to the south of her. He has cut down 2 trees in her yard and they disagree about the property line. Board gave her information on a surveyor that the township uses. The township has no authority concerning this issue. They need a clarification on the property line by a surveyor.
Clerk will get an updated router and contact the internet provider on upgrading the speed for internet. It should help with video meetings when needed. Roberts made a motion to give clerk authority to purchase and upgrade costs for internet and router. Seconded by Holstrom and carried.
Vance Sherman contacted the clerk and then Holstrom about high water levels on his property on 365th Ave. Holstrom will get back to him about placing a culvert, the old culvert may be plugged or caved in.
Roinez Beach sign was replaced. Jim Olson texted to thank the board for getting it done. Baumgartner had called the county and they replaced the sign.
Long discussion on the West Point Trail/Eldorado Beach Road trail issue. Dave Breuer would like to buy lot 17 but wants to access it from Eldorado Beach Road. It may not be possible unless there is an easement or the trail is reconstructed. Board would like to give the property owners on Oak Ridge Beach Road, West Point Trail, and Eldorado Beach Road from Amor Park going east to the dead end, an opportunity to voice their opinion on what to do with the trail and road access. The decisions made will impact all of the residents on these roads.
With no further business to discuss the meeting was adjourned at 8:25 pm.
