At this time, the township will send them a letter to state we are aware of the issue and give them an official warning.
Rich talked to someone loading a large street sweeper onto a flatbed dump truck on 890th; because of the road bans being on Rich told him he would need to leave the truck there. He claimed he didn’t know about any road bans but an hour later the truck and sweeper were gone.
Supervisor Reports: Question was asked about the fire call on Q and the bill. It will be the responsibility of the property owner.
