TOWN BUILDING, GROUNDS & EQUIPMENT: Discussion of backup generator for hall: Russ stated the contractor and Ameren were at the hall and discussed the meter box must be moved around the building. A pole by the road district building must be adjusted so it will be in compliance with regulations. The generator will not be water cooled. The unit is a Generac generator with natural gas, and this will take care of both buildings. Russ is hoping there will be bids next month.

COMMUNICATIONS & Correspondence:

TOWN BUSINESS ~ Supervisor: Russ is still trying to get the Ameren contractor to fill ruts in the yard when they replaced a pole. He left an information card about CO2 lines so everyone can read about it.

Seal- coating is still in the air and he is not aware when they will be here. Roads that will be affected will be Hollis, Sunflower, Tuscarora, and McCullough.
