Trustee: Bob Steele reported that the Road Commission installed two new cross tubes on Mayville Road prior to new asphalt this summer.


Supervisor: We have had a couple of calls regarding dust control (chloride). It was scheduled with the Road Commission and the Road Commission graded the roads to prepare for dust control. Weather looked good, they spread the chloride and then we had two inches of rain, but they are holding up good. Bob found out the neighbors were going to have manure spreaders in the area on that Monday so Bob asked Wilkinson's not to spread dust control until they are done. They did so which saved the Township alot of money. By the way please keep Jim McMinn and Mary Harp in your prayers. Ernest Coleman is doing well.
