7.      We are still pumping well # 6. The turbidity was down to 19.2 last evening. It is slowly getting better. If it does not improve will have to meet with the Hydrogeologist.

8.      The auction results were reviewed. The mobile home bid went to $13, 500. The Roller was at $2,500 and the chipper was at $4,000. A Gunder/Bumbaugh motion approved liquidating the items and using the money to purchase a new chipper. Motion carried unanimously.

9.      Supervisor Gunder informed the Board that a lot of work has gone into justifying the $141,000 payout from the DCED/County Planning for the CDBG Grant period of 2011/12 for Furnace Road mainline. They want all of our surveys by a certain date for us to receive our CDBG money.

10.  Supervisor Bumbaugh informed the Board that when tarring and chipping, Washington Township has tarred and Chipped Blue Rock Road and we tarred and chipped Polidor Road for them. For years we have plowed all of Blue Rock Road and Polidor Road at no charge to Washington Township and they have been doing Fish & Game Road for us. Washington Township billed us for the tarring and chipping of our portion of Blue Rock Rod Which Supervisor Gunder did not appreciate considering that we have plowed that road for years and never charged them anything. Also Supervisor Bumbaugh would like to talk to Antrim Township about Fort Stouffer Road and possibly discontinuing the sharing of the plowing. A Bumbaugh/Gunder motion approved pursuing these two issues.

The meeting adjourned at 9:10 am. on a Gunder/Bumbaugh motion.
