The possibility of making improvements to the roads in the Nash Acres subdivision took a step forward Monday night at the
The board unanimously agreed to move forward with the project which would benefit the 65 parcels of private land estimated at more than $520,000. Without bonding for the project, it will be paid for by transferring payment from the general fund to other township reserves by a special assessment to property owners there. Several residents spoke in support of the project during the public hearing, to describe the difficulty in traversing the roads in their current state, as well as to deal with other entities in maintaining the roads.
Among other highlights:
- The board agreed to postpone a resolution to begin a program which would offer advertising for local businesses on new signs posted at key intersections within the township where cars frequently pass through. The program, which township employees hope will eventually fund more-elaborate stone signs, was postponed to allow for clarification on which businesses would be allowed to pay to sponsor the program.
- The board voted to approve a resolution to hire a Minnesota-based, information technology firm LBL Technology in the amount of $33,500 to to prepare a technology plan.
- The board voted to approve replacing an open position within the township Clerk's office.
