A.    Dave Johnson handed out and reviewed a document listing all road projects and costs that have been completed during the last six years.  He also explained LLL Township’s view on road maintenance and repair.  The board and township citizens desire to keep roads in excellent shape and to do repairs in a timely manner.


B.  A discussion with the LaPrairie board was cordial and pleasant.  The LaPrairie board believes the shared portion of McKenzie Rd is in excellent shape and they saw no need for a full graveling. They explained that the township is having financial problems due to the destruction and replacement of their town hall.

The LaPrairie Board did agree to the following:

-          Pay half the cost of spot graveling, not to exceed 8 truck loads  at 15 yds  per load.

-          Pay up to 1 ˝ hours of road prep at $80 per hour.


C.   Further discussion by the LLL Board concerning the summer graveling project. 

Road bed reshaping will be done on all township roads and shared roads.  The shared portion of McKenzie Rd will be spot graveled.  The remaining gravel, originally planned for the shared portion of McKenzie, will be added to the portion used on other town roads. All roads will be bladed after gravel is spread.   Ardell Johnson will contact Dale Vogt and explain the change in graveling of the shared portion of McKenzie Rd.
