WILMA TOWNSHIP BOARD OF REORGANIZATION 3-19-09
Chairman Gary Vink called the meeting to order at 12 noon at the Duxbury Bar with the Pledge of Allegiance. Also present were Supervisors Michael McCullen and Glenford Williamson, Sr., Treasurer Patrice Winfield and Clerk Paul Raymond.
Mike was sworn in as Supervisor for a three-year term; Patrice was sworn in as Treasurer for a two-year term. Paul read the record of last year’s Board of Reorganization.
Mike asked if the voters had voted zero levies, would this be legal? The voters have the authority to set any levy amounts, but we would not get any gas tax revenue if they voted less than $12,000 for Road and Bridge. Mike moved that the Board confirm the will of the citizens at our Annual Town Meeting regarding wages, fees, mileage payment, and snowplowing fees for 2009. Glen seconded. Glen said that the Supervisors were required to attend the Annual Meeting for the Board of Canvass and Gary for the Road Report, and therefore they should be paid. He moved for the record that any meeting that a township official is required to attend be reimbursed at the hourly rate, minimum one hour. Mike seconded.
2009 SHORT COURSES: Patrice has a conflict with the April 2nd Short Course in Grand Rapids, so she and Paul will attend the Short Course in St. Cloud on Monday, and Donna and Glen will go to Grand Rapids. Glen asked that Paul and Patrice get the information on township officer dental insurance when they go. We are still planning on attending the Pine County Township Officers meeting on March 28 in Hinckley. Glen will be picking up Paul and Patrice at 8 a.m.
FUST BRIDGE: Mike got a couple of calls from the Pine County Soil and Water District regarding the bridge on Fust’s private land. Mike said this is not a township bridge and we have no jurisdiction over it.
VINK ROAD SIGN: Glen moved that we replace the damaged Vink Road sign. Gary said the threat of damage has passed. Mike seconded. Paul will write to Steiben to get a new sign.
OFFICERS FOR 2009: Mike nominated Glen for Chairman for 2009. Gary seconded. There were no other nominations and Glen was elected.
Gary moved to adjourn; Mike seconded. Meeting adjourned at 1 p.m.

TOWN OF WILMA
A resolution of the Board of Supervisors of Wilma Township, Pine County, Minnesota, November 5, 2003
Whereas in January, 2003, the Pine County Board of Commissioners lifted the twelve-year ban on the importation and spreading of sludge (biosolids as a byproduct of municipal wastewater treatment plants) in Pine County and,
Whereas the safety of sludge in the Wilma Township watersheds has not been demonstrated or proved and,
Whereas the possibility exists of permanent contamination from sludge with mercury or cadmium, endangering the health and safety of Wilma Township residents,
Be it therefore resolved that: No sludge shall be imported, stored, or spread in any part of Wilma Township, Pine County, Minnesota.
