Approval of Minutes: The clerk provided copies of the March 4, 2019 minutes to the board. Ray made the motion to accept the minutes, Mike made the second. Minutes approved.
Bob Medinger presented information about the history of the property which was deeded to the Township in 1957 for the purpose of public use. Some issues as to where the property lies and what the survey says. It is still on record as an official access, but the property is not marketable as is. In the March 13, 2019 letter to the Township, they offer two options: the Township transfers the road to them and they facilitate the roadwork for access or the Township utilizes heavy equipment to service the road and widens the access into the bank. Medingers abstract shows deeded lake access of 7 ft. on the 1957 abstract. Ron felt that the survey that the Calls have and the one that the Medingers have need to show the same lines before anything can be done.
