Gary got the grader batteries and according to Mark they did not work. Not cold cranking.
Glen heard from Ryberg regarding gravel pile and requested that Ryberg send his response in writing. We have not heard from him as of the meeting. According to Gary he stated that he took the sand and said “I should have asked permission”. Glen stated that the issue was addressed to him in writing and his response should be in writing. Gary will go through books on what was used, but Ryberg did not say how much was taken.
A question was posed by Mike if Mark will still be our main grader. Mark responded that he would.

BOARD OF AUDIT:

There were questions regarding a pay raise for Election Judges. Question was held and after later discussion, it was decided to keep the rate the same. There was discussion also on the Levy and per Patrice it came to $15,440. It was changed to $16,000.
Building Fund: It was suggested by Mike to keep the amount the same as there is leaking etc. in the Hall.

Road Report by Gary :
Heller Rd road work done on Jan 15, 2011, Bill was sent to New Dosey Clerk. Gary mentioned that on February 2nd, they only plowed driveways.
Mark spoke with Randy Buerman to do electric garage opener, weather stripping and misc. work. Bid was $1,160. There was discussion that the current doors are hard to open. It was mentioned by Glen that this will wipe out the fund, but that it was reasonable. Gary mentioned it would have to be done at some time. Mike mentioned that the dripping is bad. There is damage from a tornado several years ago. Weather stripping should also be done on all sides and it was noted to have the bid broken down and to get a second bid. Randy can have it done in two weeks.
Glen asked Mark how the plowing/Grader training was going with Frank Rehberger. Mark said that the training is going good and he handled the equipment very well. Mark asked if he was comfortable to have him do it alone if he was not available. Mark said yes and it was suggested that we give him a list of addresses to plow.
Glen gave condolences to Mark Pallow on the passing of his sister.
