MOTION to Approve Picnic License for the Legion Spaghetti Feed and Birthday Party by Hohmann/Turvaville VP Trustee Jesse Hohmann wanted to talk about the Federal Pilot Program and was concerned that the media did not understand that the Village of Bay City had entered into an agreement with DNR for the DNR and Army Corp of Engineers to apply for the grant. The board discussed the matter and are still concerned with the cost of dredging the Bay City Harbor. Discussion was that we would attempt to contact some of the corporations in our area to try and raise funds for the project. Clerk Lunda will continue to try and contact the businesses in the area regarding fund raising and donations. Resident Danny Weinzel and his companion asked to address the board. They are still concerned with the trains going through this area and having a quit zone. Discussion was about possibly contacting our congress men and women about the matter and attempting to procure funding to put up an additional arm so that we can obtain a quiet zone. Clerk Lunda will be sending additional letters and it was encouraged that other citizens do so as well as we all still would like this to be established as well.
Closed Session was tabled as we did not need it.
MOTION to pay bills by Niebeling/Ebensperger motion carried.
