Road Report:

Superviser Abba reported vandalism on the Ernst Rd stop signs.

Brush cutting has been completed, improving visibility in intersections.

Snow plowing expenses have been higher this year than last year, largely due to the winter rain/ice storms. We will probably stay on budget, but spend the entire snow plow budget.

Weight limits are in effect.

New road is being added in the Whispering Winds subdivision.

Memorandum of Understanding for the Waupaca County Sheriff so they are able to enforce Class B and spring weight limits within the township.

There is one State Patrol weight enforcement position per county. Our county State Patrol is vacant and has been for some time. What can be done to get that filled?

           

CEC Report:

The outdoor restroom is ready for spring construction. $1,100 still needs to be raised.

The Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan was adopted tonight. The CEC will work to prioritize and implement the plan.

There will be a Marketing Plan meeting on Wednesday, February 22.

Any residents interested in joining are welcome to attend.

 

County Supervisor Report:

 

County Supervisor Kietzmann was absent from the meeting.

 

As follow up from last month, Pagel reported that she talked to Kietzmann regarding his “No” vote on the Waupaca County Budget. Kieztmann was concerned that it was too much money into the drugs program to combat the heroin/meth epidemic. Pagel said she asked him if he voted based on concern voiced by residents; Kieztmann said that no residents had contacted him with concerns.

 

Meeting was adjourned at 8:45pm

 

Respectfully Submitted,

 

Natalie Snyder, Clerk
