Steve will meet with Nicholas Tree Services on February 22nd@9AM. Steve will present the proposal spending up to $2000 with Nicholas Tree Service to the Town Board for approval. It is hoped that approval will be granted and a contract can be in place with work being done soon.
Steve has met with Tom Richards about an Eagle Scout project involving a new trail in the Town Park. Steve will provide him with an aerial map of the park to begin some discussions about the proposed work.
Kathy Esch has sent Steve an email. At her suggestion, Steve contacted the Oasis Club at OHS. They are interested in doing a service project in the Town Park, in an area that hasn’t had a lot of work done. Kathy Esch and Jack Mitchell have agreed to mark plants that should be retained and then the Oasis Club would remove undesirable growth. Steve is setting up an appointment with Randal Smith, Oasis Club advisor, for a meeting to discuss possible spring work. Steve also indicated that he is getting other occasional phone calls about service projects.
Garrett Frankson is planning on attending the Town Board meeting on March 1stto give a report on his project.
The next meeting will be Monday, March 14, 2011 at 6:30 pm.
Mark moved to adjourn and Bob seconded the motion. Motion carried.
