Next regular meeting August 10, 2006

Carl Johnson who lives on Little Pelican Dr. stopped by late, he stated that where the highline was opened up there is now getting to be a great infestation of thistle. He said he did go and spray some of it. Was wondering why we only mowed so far down on Beaver Dam Rd. then stopped, if we would have mowed down a little further it would have mowed off the thistle. He lives further down on Little Pelican Lake. He also stated that where the garbage truck turns around it is breaking off the tar there. T. Rice will check with roadman about these issues.

Meeting adjourned by general consent.
