Old Business- A. A digital camera was purchased for the town.

                      B. The town purchased 400 yards of washed sand for $7.90/yard.

 

Patrolman/Hwy. Building/Hwy. Report  A. The town will not be getting a printer for the patrolmen at this time.  The town was not sure that there is a cost benefit for the printer versus getting copies made elsewhere.   

           

B.  Kevin checked into the topper for the pick up truck.  The town decided that it was more cost efficient to go with a roll top over the truck bed.  One has been purchased and installed

 

            C. The windshield on the dump truck was damaged when traveling on 360th on November 13th.  It appears that there was a wire that was across the road          by Larry Hackett’s property which had something hanging from it, most likely a glass/ceramic insulator.  This object then struck the windshield of the dump         truck, causing it to break.  A letter will be sent to Larry Hackett requesting the payment to fix the windshield.

 

            D. It was highly suggested that the air compressor in the dump truck needs to be replaced.  The cost would be about $800.  The board approved the            repair to be done on the dump truck.

 

Correspondence – none to note
