Present: Steve Root, Janine Jensen, Mark Brylski, Bob Johnson
Also present: Matt Weber
The meeting was called to order by Steve Root.
The minutes from the previous meeting were read. Motion made to approve as read. Motion carried.
Steve thanked Bob Johnson and Matt Weber for their efforts involved in helping with the cement for the picnic table and benches at the Town Hall and the seeding around the area.
Steve has been approached by one Boy Scout from Troop 50 for a possible Eagle Scout project. This scout has expressed some interest in building something for his project. Since the picnic tables in Ravenoaks Park are in poor condition, Steve will suggest building new tables for Ravenoaks and perhaps several new benches for some of the other parks, especially Ravenoaks, Kennedy and Della. The scout will be encouraged to attend the next meeting to discuss his proposal. There is one scout who has indicated interest in a project involving some prairie restoration in the Town Park.
Matt Weber reported that all seems well in the parks. There is no new vandalism to report. Other than a few broken bottles in the Town Park, he feels the parks are in good shape. Steve is going to suggest to the Town crew to move the winter road barriers that are currently stacked by the Town Park sign. This will enable Matt to mow around them, making the sign more visible.
Steve reported that it appears that the hard surface path in the Town Park is beginning to crack. The committee discussed possible remedies. Bob made the motion and Mark seconded it to get bids for seal coating of the path and also the parking lot. Motion carried.
Matt reported that he had had the opportunity to look at the pipe in the Della Park. It appears to be installed deeper than expected. Bob suggested that the town crew take a cutting torch and cut it off. Steve will mention it to Ron Outhouse.
The next meeting will be August 4, 2008 @ 6:30pm.
Mark moved to adjourn and Bob seconded the motion. Motion carried.
