Old Business: After a very long discussion amongst the board trustees and concerned members of the town on the cost of enforcing the proposed building ordinance to the township is was first decided to table the 2nd reading of the ordinance and then after even further discussion by a motion of Trudo/ 2nd by Kilian it was decided to totally scrap and get rid of the proposal. Motion passed.

By a motion of Kilian/2nd by Lembke it was decided that an ad will be placed for the demolition of the old brick school house.  This will include the tearing down of, hauling away all rubble and properly filling in the area after all rubble is removed. Motion passed.

New Business: By a motion of Kilian/2nd by Lembke a generator will be bought from the State. Ron Simon and Jim Lembke both looked at the condition of it and it will be a good investment for the town for the sewer system for a backup in case we lose power. Generator will be purchased for $4,500.00. Motion passed.

With there being no further business to discuss, by a motion of Trudo/2nd by Kilian, meeting was adjourned at 8:18pm.  Next monthly meeting will be held on Monday – May 7th at 8pm. Please make note of the time change.
