Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye. (2) Warner discussed a project that he would like to focus on, but would need to see where the funds would come from. We have had two fatality accidents on 96th to 101st St., the ditches are narrow and deep and the fences are too close to the road. I cannot say the current incident had anything to do with the conditions of the roads, but we need to address the current issues. We do have plenty of easements, since this is a section line, but we would need help in the work. District #2 could not handle the daily work and take on this major project. Stephens stated that this area is a Lake Access Road and you can look at INCOG for a CDBG Grant as well. Warner stated I would like to see a small portion of the road to be straightened out as well. Warner also stated the road is part of the Major Collectors of the County Road System. Warner stated he will look into options of the funding and put item back on a future agenda.
Public Comment: NONE
Adjournment: Motion was made by Stephens and seconded by Warner at 9:59 a.m. to adjourn and meet again 3-20-23. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye.
