Dumpster is in place for spring clean-up

Layout was completed, stalls delineated for different recycling items

Trailer was found, purchased and upgraded with sides, all under the $3500 budget

We are looking at signs for the fence to help direct people for what can be dropped off or not.

Aluminum signs are very expensive, $4600. Looking at other options i.e. hollow core board, or just banners. Maybe a 4-H project?


Road Maintenance

Continuing with culvert inventory per State regulations

Grader training was completed for Jeremy. He has started going out on his own, Mike is checking his work and he is doing very well. This should help ease some of the grading demand.

Roads graded: Airport, Muskeg, Hoover Line middle & north, Pudas, Oulu Pioneer, West Colby and Hokkanen. Also started to put gravel on Hokkanen Road

Fast pass of ditch mowing has been completed

North Hissa ditching project has turned into a project. We found some trees that need to be

removed, possibly utility poles that need to be moved to get the ditch into correct alignment. We

continue to work on this with alternative options. Scott Weyandt will discuss options with the Board.

No word yet on County estimate for crack-sealing, Airport Road and Boulevard Road

No major breakdowns, one hydraulic line

Small tractor and flair mower has been moved to its final resting place at the Heritage Center

LRIP planning is in progress o we can post the Request for Bids for completion in 2025
