David Shipley, Riley Road – Riley Road concerns.

Need dust control for the road.  Dannette shared we applied for an Engineers estimate to solid surface the road.  Cost = $594,000.  Our township is required to put down 20%.  He acknowledged this and asked for ditch work, a better base, and dust control.  He stated that there is a place for us to dump spoils.  We can also borrow equipment if we need, just ask.

Patti and Tracy Gardner, 5808 Cat Run Road  – Cat Run Road concerns.  

The culvert is not working and water is running down the road.  They presented a petition from residents on the road that want the road paved.  Dannette expressed similar concern with costs as Riley Road.

Bethanie Wydick, State Route 661 – Responding to a Zoning Violation for using a camper at her home as a residence/dwelling in violation of Zoning Resolution Article 5.10, 5.17 and Article 10.4.   She stated her adult son lives with her but spends time in a camper on her property for temporary time out periods due to a mental health condition.
