Clerk Report-Katie Moll
Ellen C. questioned why the proposal was for paving of 284th St. with LRIP money when she was promised paving on her road 12 years ago. Why was this chosen over other areas? The answer was based on actual location and probable funds to fit that specific distance.
Is the board planning to black top all gravel roads in the township? No.
Nextgen Grant Update: Tim Kusilek informed town that grant was approved for the project. Next step is to get contractors in place. Work should begin about a year from now. Cable and supplies have been ordered. Around the 1st of the year Nextgen will send out a mailing to all eligible homeowners about the installation. There is no cost to have lines run. They will offer a one-time special $50 hookup charge at that time. If homeowner chooses to NOT hook up at that time, regular hook up rates will apply after that.
Nextgen is looking for a small piece of land to build a “hut” on.
