Holstrom gave the fire report. A water truck was bought for $47,000.00. It is a 1995 International. He also has some concerns about the workmanship on the new fire hall.

Holmgren gave the road report. Mowing has been difficult due to all the rain. The grass is growing very rapidly so he has had to mow more times.

The library box at Catherine Barner’s will need to be taken down in the winter. It will be an issue if the snow is bad. They have agreed to take it down so that it doesn’t get damaged.

With no further business to discuss the meeting was adjourned at 8:00 pm.
