James Stouffer stated everyone is happy in regard to their projects and the potential to

 move to the south with their PUD and to take it to the preliminary approval and the final approval and gave an overview of the work that has been in progress, the pond, etc.  Gary asked where the excess water goes from the pond.  James stated it flows the same place as it did before.  It also gets absorbed in the soils.  It also will still go to the Township pump station when it exceeds certain flow rates.  There also is a two stage drain.  Discussion followed in regard to drainage. 


Mrs. Joyce stated there is an urgency in the matter of the flooding of her home in Gem Beach.  She asked when the letters will be sent and when the project to correct this will  be started.  Gary Mortus stated the engineering has been done and it is a matter of final drawings  and he does not think easements will be a problem.  Pat Cerny also stated she has spoken to Dave Brunkhorst and he stated the project will be in September or October, as soon as the traffic slows down. 


Robert Schroeder stated we have a new fireman.  He will not have to go to school as he has been a fireman in Bainbridge for a sufficient time.  William Rofkar made a motion to approve Bryan Bobb for probationary volunteer fireman.  Gary Mortus seconded.  All voted aye.  Bob also stated he has been mowing the nature trail.
