The meeting was called to order by Chair Freeman at 8:45 PM.

Regular Business

August board minutes read and approved by Supervisors Freeman & Landstrom. All ayes, motion carried.

Treasurer Report

Stoneburner reported that there was unexpected revenue that he contributed to the double levy in the year 2005. In relation to that Arndt reported that the deadline for filing of the Final Town Levies for 2006 to be collected in 2007 is September 15th.

∙ Freeman moved to file a zero final levy for 2006 to be collected in 2007 to correct the double levy imposed in 2005. Fry seconded. All ayes, motion carried.

Arndt will drop off the Final Town Levies form and speak with Richard Olson, Deputy St Louis County Auditor, to make sure the filing is done correctly and that a zero levy is appropriate as he stated verbally by the phone. The board agreed that if we loose our gas tax money when filing in this manner that it would be okay.

Old Business

Do we need to approve St Louis County All Hazard Mitigation Plan?

∙ Fry moved to approve the St Louis County All Hazard Mitigation Plan. Landstrom seconded. All ayes, motion carried.

Fire chief Lucia was consulted to see if we needed to file this form as the VFD had already done so. It was agreed that the Township should also approve the Plan.

Second Bid for Enclosed Portion for Town Sign

It was clarified that as previously discussed that a plastic sleeve would be used to protect any posting and it would be attached using the magnetic letters.

Auto Mark Voting Machine Insurance

Stoneburner is making inquiries about the insurance coverage for the Auto Mark voting machine and will report back at the October meeting.
