Maintenance Report: Crack filling is complete.  Seal Coating should be completed by the end of the week/beginning of next. Roll off day is set for September 26. By consensus of board, Kevin will rent an arm mower again for 2 weeks.   Town of Springfield is wanting to possibly “share” the rent as they would like to mow for 2 weeks also. This will cut the cost for us.  Kevin will call the Eau Claire office and make sure the agreement is the same as they quoted for last year.

Roll off day is set for Saturday, September 19th 9am-1pm.
