        Karl Busby stated he is interested in being an alternate  member of one of the Zoning Boards.  Bill Rofkar  thanked him for volunteering and  Pat has a list  and your name will be added.

        Jonathon Heigel representing the Mon Ami is just checking  on the music complaints and Bill stated they have not heard any more.

        Reggie Langford volunteered his services to  spread some chemicals in the pond  to get rid of the algae and make it nice and blue.

      Bill stated kind of playing by ear now to see how the algae develops and whether we need the blue in it.  Are trying to keep it as natural as possible.

      Pat Cerny stated  she received another applicant for the Zoning Boards to add to the list.

      Gary Mortus stated he had a complaint of all the mud on Northwest Catawba Road and it was just like a mud slick when it rained.  Being a County road he will call Bob Steinmiller to fix the problem

      Bill said he had a call on it too and he gave Mr. Brown a call  and they are trying get the lawn in.  Being they are up so much higher than anyone else it really creates a problem.

      Clerk stated you asked about advertising cost in the News Herald and we spent $2012.48 in year 2003.

      William Rofkar talked to Bob Kasper about an auction and he has August 7th open and their fee is 18.5%.   They will set it up and do the advertising and Township will pay for advertising.  Talked to Dan if  maintenance has anything and Bob Rogers has a big list beside the car so think there is too much stuff for us to handle an auction.

      A motion was made by Gary Mortus and seconded by William Rofkar to hold a public auction on

August 7, 2004 starting at 10:00 a.m. for excess equipment including police cruiser and police unclaimed properties with Bob Kasper and Dennis Timple as auctioneers.  Both voted aye.

      Gary Mortus made a motion to adjourn at 8:00 p.m.;  William Rofkar seconded and both voted aye
