ROAD REPORT: T. Rice stated that maintenance person T. Loberg has dumped out the sand and has cleaned up the truck. He has also started sealing the cracks on the road. Discusson held about the Meixner property as he wants $900.00 before he will sign an agreement to be able to dump some dirt on his property & put up a guard rail on Sunset Valley Rd across from Wallins South Shore Dr. ( the $900.00 stems from driveway issue when we paved past his current residence on Sunset Valley Rd.)
