The Road Tour was completed and the roads look to be in good shape with not issues. There was little lose of gravel from winter snow plowing.


B.      Spraying of town road right of  ways:

Jesse & Charis Cox asked the board to allow them to maintain the town road right of way along their property rather than have the township spray or brush.  The Cox’s and the Town Board agreed that:  The Cox’s will maintain the town road right of way adjacent to their property, keeping it clear of brush and noxious weeds. They further agree that they will keep trees trimmed to prevent a vision barrier at the intersection of Big Hill Rd and Shoreline Trail. Note: the town road right of way extends 33 feet from the center of the road to both sides for a total of 66 feet in width.
