Public Comment:Licht – a few four wheels on Diamond Hill Road on two wheels and going too fast.
Patrolman’s Report: Brush grinding right now, about 7 days left of that. Some brush cutting left to do. De-winterize equipment, pothole patching, shoulder work, clean shop. Dump door lock had some issues a few week ago – have Brandon pick a new one up. Resident cut himself putting his own glass in the dumpster, have Brandon pick up a first aid kit to keep at the dump. Rehr - 4 Control $200ish a mile – Winfield Township uses them to control some of the brush after it gets cut back. Should look into using this company to help us maintain the brush. Zimmer – its more economical compared to the $10,000 we are spending on Brush Grinding. Rehr will check with Winfield and get more information on the company. Zimmer – seeing any areas that are prone to Spring Break Up? – Schmidt Road, Klein Road, Ruff Road. Happy Hill is posted already. Brandon will close Ruff Road. Zimmer – maybe consider double chip on a portion of Freedom Road.
Bridge Project: Rehr got an email from Joshua Sweno – everything is on to the state and right on track as planned.
2018 Highway Maintenance Program:Will redo once Road Tour is complete. Zimmer – should move forward with getting bids for pulverizing. Nehring – Weinke Road we need to address driveway culverts with the road construction, should discuss those culverts on Road Tour. Rehr – most will have to be done on a case to case basis but need a list to start with.
