Road Report: T. Rice gave report. T. Rice checked on the tar pot, he said Lake Edwards Township was going to sell one of their tar pots for $300.00. T. Rice looked at our tar pot and it is quite a bit smaller and starting to crack in places and sort of obsolete. T. Rice will contact George Burnard from Lake Edwards Township and go and look at the tar pot and see if we can negotiate, possibly purchasing tar together to get a better deal. T. Rice will contact Anderson Brothers about getting them to bring Class 1 for shouldering on quite a few of our roads, this will be a separate road project. B. Galles will call Al Knowlen from Anderson Brothers to set up a time for him to come out and review the Sunset Valley Rd. project so the board can go over some of the specific things they would like see done such as possibly adding fill in the dips past Ruth Wallin’s house to the top of the hill to make as level as possible. Looking at scheduling for last week of April.
