Present: Steve Root, Janine Jensen, Mark Brylski, Raandi Schmidt Also present: Eagle Scout candidate Garrett Frankson
The meeting was called to order by Steve Root.
The minutes from the previous meeting were read and approved.
Steve presented a list of possible Eagle Scout projects. One possible project, the proposed kiosk with maps of trails for the Town Park and Bicentennial Park, was not on the list. The reason is that there is a scout who has indicated interest in this project, so Steve didn't want to make it a public option.
Steve and Raandi individually walked through the Ravenoaks Park. There are several downed trees and the Town crew will be notified for removal. There are two unauthorized trails that have been created. They are hard-packed, but have no erosion bars. After walking the park, Steve recommends that the Town have the Ravenoaks Park re-surveyed to determine actual boundaries. This will make any Eagle Scout projects easier. Mark moved and Raandi seconded the motion to re-survey Ravenoaks Park and hire an arborist to determine and remove any dead or dying trees. Motion carried.
The Bicentennial Park has many overgrown trails. As of the last Town Board meeting, the proposed park maintenance list, including these overgrown trails had not yet been posted. Steve will present the list at the next meeting.
The Town Park looks good. The spraying for weeds has been done. However, the picnic table has been scorched and there was some graffiti. Steve sanded the top to remove both. There are also a couple of dead trees that the town crew should be able to take down.
Della Street Park also has been sprayed and the brush and tree has been removed. Kennedy Park has had the spraying done around the equipment and sign. The newly planted Linden trees appear to be stressed. Steve will contact Kathy Esch to get her opinion.
Garrett Frankson and his scoutmaster have met with a carpenter for the re-design of the gazebo. Garrett should have the re-design by the end of the month. Mark moved that Steve be authorized to sign off on the scout project for up to $3000 for expenses for the gazebo. Raandi seconded the motion. Motion carried.
Raandi will be attending Troop 168's meeting following this meeting.
The next meeting will be Monday, September 13, 2010 @ 6:30pm.
Mark moved to adjourn and Raandi seconded the motion. Motion carried.
