WILMA TOWNSHIP SPRING ROAD INSPECTION, MAY 6, 2009
The Board met at the Duxbury Store at 10 a.m., Chairman Glenford Williamson, Sr., Supervisor Gary Vink, Grader Operator Mark Pallow, and Clerk Paul Raymond.
EAGLE HEAD ROAD: Danforth Township is responsible for the West Range-Line Roads. The road needs some gravel the first 50 feet. The first culvert is plugged and has no screens. The second culvert is screened. Regular maintenance.
CROOKED LAKE ROAD: Needs gravel one mile down. There is some washout at the first culvert; there is a bad hole south of the first culvert. The second culvert is washed over. The culvert at Jason Palme’s has no screen. The road should have been ditched on the west side. When Danforth bladed the road they destroyed the crown and bladed it flat. The Kelch’s have agreed to move their trailer. They also need to move the dumpster which is in the right-of-way.
DOLLAR LAKE ROAD: Regular maintenance; no gravel.
VINK ROAD: Needs gravel the first quarter mile, and two loads of gravel at the north end. Regular maintenance.
MINK FARM ROAD: Regular maintenance; some gravel on the hill where it’s washed out.
MAYFIELD ROAD: Regular maintenance. Some gravel on the last culvert where it’s washed out (two loads). After grading, the road may need some gravel.
LITTLE TAMARACK LAKE ROAD: Regular maintenance. Maybe some gravel before the landing.
SHORT ROAD: Nothing needed.
LOST RIVER ROAD: One load Class 5 at the first low spot by first driveway. Regular blading. We will contact Quinn to confirm approval for the gravel.
RIVER CABIN ROAD: One load gravel at first quarter mile. Regular maintenance.
MONA DRIVE: Regular maintenance.
KENNY PETERSON ROAD: Needs four loads of Class 5 gravel. The road is under water after the first ½ mile. There was a discussion on vacating the road after this point if building it up would be too expensive.
HELLER DRIVE: Regular maintenance. Needs one or two loads of gravel at the first culvert where there is a hole.
TAMARACK PINE DRIVE: Regular maintenance.
MC CULLEN DRIVE: Regular maintenance.
LANGSTROM ROAD: Regular maintenace, plus the two loads of pit-run at the extension, as per our agreement. 2009 is Wilma’s maintenance year.
PETE ANDERSON ROAD: Regular maintenance, plus two loads of pit-run at end as per agreement.
SCHMEDEKE LANE: Regular maintenance.
FUST ROAD: Regular maintenance.
SOUTH DUNCAN ROAD: T & T Logging wrecked this road after we repaired it and used their escrow deposit. They filled in our ditch with wood chips and the road is rutted and flooded. The board discussed sending a bill to T & T with photos showing the damages. We still have over $400 in escrow monies from them for another road, which we could tell them we would use. The damages to S. Duncan could be more than this. We could tell them they can do no logging in our township until they pay for repairs.
NORTH DUNCAN ROAD: Gravel needed for holes. At ¾ mile up the road and 1 ¼ mile there may need to be gravel. Gary will inspect it again after Mark has bladed it to see how much gravel is needed after Mark has shaped it up. We got a letter from Allen Thiry, asking that there be some gravel put down at 1 ½ mile north going up the hill to his property; because of the mud and ruts he could barely get in. Also we will put down more pit-run gravel at the end of the road, where it turns into grass.
