New Business- Doug Uhland came to ask the board about his mom’s property to see if they would allow the cul-de-sac. He also was asking if the town would consider an ordinance against storage units as they are not very nice to look at. 

The board discussed double minimum charge for houses on one meter, and that if someone is living in an RV that is considered a dwelling and will be charged as a house. They said they have to stay the same for everyone. The water, sewer and trash ordinance is set every year in January and it’s been this way for years.

Chris Keplar came with his three daughters and Raina Lucero with her daughter. The four girls did a bake sale at the bash and raised money for the swimming pool. They presented a $320.00 check to the Town to go towards the new swimming pool.  The board was very appreciative of their kind gesture.
