The Pledge of Allegiance was said by all present. The agenda was approved. Town hall remodel: The remodel job was awarded to Bill Fossum, for a bid of $16,200.00. L Knecht made a motion to accept, second by G Castore, to allow B Pfahning to pay the invoices as they come due up to the bid amount. L Knecht brought up discussion of the possibility of taking out a float loan at the end of the year if needed to cover any expenses. Road update, Dennis Brown: Gravel and rock on the following roads: 140th, Dahle, 135th, Cabot to the salvage yard to Comos Junction, Decker has gravel to the cones, and from 59 to Dundas city limits, Baldwin, Dixon Trail, 115th and Cates. The barricades are still at Decker. DOT is sending all heavy trucks up 118th or Cabot because of HWY 3 detour. Upcoming material stabilization: will treat Cabot and Baseline from CSAH 1 to Cty 8, budget for treatment is $10,000.00. Dennis to keep track of extra costs for this due to the extra use from HWY 3 closure. Endwood Trail-look into cutting down the ridge for proper drainage so not to undermine the asphalt. Repair the soft spot on 147th.

B Pfahning spoke of the Minnesota Unemployment past due notices. All should be cleared up once the township files again. Apparently the filing stopped in 2005. Quarterly recap of all accounts, due by August meeting. Copy of all invoices to Brad to verify payments, all correspondence is to be sent to the PO Box 246.
