Both full and part-time maintenance employees worked on clean-up day; the board was
provided with the road counts for Floe Road and the Sheshebe circle

Bob Prow of Nuss Truck & Equipment will give the township an amount for a trade-in for the Sterling. There was discussion regarding selling both the Kodiak and the Sterling. It was stated that the township should keep one of the plows for a spare. The board noted that putting the trucks and one of the plows on State Bid as separate items would be a good selling option.

Tom Besch – provided the town board with a letter from his doctor allowing him to work without any restrictions
188th Avenue – Bob Beaver provided the board with a preliminary review and estimate. The project includes bituminous reclamation, bituminous overlay and a total reconstruction of a portion of the road. The project and costs were discussed in a section by section manner. Due to the size of the project, it was stated that the township could break it into two parts. By timing the project with the county’s road
project that will be completed in summer of 2018, the township would be able to save some money by piggy-backing on the county’s project bids. Bob will check with the county for further details of the planned road road.

Salt Shed – It was stated that the salt shed is getting into a deteriorated state. The board discussed the salt shed styles presented by Bob Beaver and preferred size that would accommodate current and possible future needs for the new shed.

Vorlicky Road Vacation – The board informed Bob Beaver of the road easement for the traveled 208th Place across the DNR property that will be required for the vacation of the platted 208th Place. It was stated that the other property owners on the platted road will have title issues on their property unless the entire road is vacated. They also are currently involved in trespass issue with the DNR traveling to
their properties and on their driveways. The currently traveled road will need to be surveyed for the easement application with the DNR. The board requested that Bob Beaver survey said road consisting of a 33’ road right-of-way. The board set the Hearing in regards to the Vorlicky Road Vacation Petition for August 10, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. Mr. Vorlicky was informed that there may not be a decision at the
Hearing, the Hearing may be continued at that time.

Charles Quale informed the board that he spoke with Kenny Boyd regarding his cost for fill provided to the township for a road project. His cost would be $0.50 per yard which would be very cost effective for the township.

The board was informed that as part of the Road Easement Application process for the DNR regarding 208th Place road vacation easement/vacation a resolution is needed to allow the board to complete and submit the easement application to the DNR.

requesting permission for, Loon Avenue, is not in Shamrock Township.

Aitkin County Zoning –Board members have been approached with concern regarding junk vehicles or trailer clean up within the township. The residents were informed to contact Aitkin County Zoning, the county has an ordinance regarding such issues.

Summer Short Course – June 29 Black Bear Casino – 1:00 registration

Mail Boxes – Allen Eld informed the board that the McGregor postal system will provide notes to residents who need their mailboxes moved to the proper distance off the road. The post master requested addresses from the township where there is are problems. Allen Eld will talk with the post office to have the mailpersons deliver the notes accordingly rather than the township searching out and providing a list of addresses.

The board has discovered a 12’ concrete driveway that has been installed on a township road. The board would like to send a letter to the property owners stating that the concrete has been installed on a public non-maintained portion of the road. It has been stated that any damage or accidents caused to or by the concrete will be the responsibility of the property owner. And if at any point in time in the future
that the township needs to remove said concrete, it will be at the expense of the property owner. It was stated that there are lots further down the non-maintained road that the concrete may cause issue for. The clerk will contact the township attorney to construct a letter regarding this issue.

Motion made by Charles Quale, seconded by Ron Smith, to change the June 8 meeting time from 1:00 p.m. to 9:00 a.m.; Motion carried.

The board will check on a couple lots that are for sale along a portion of Sheshebe Road that would be beneficial with some road maintenance in that area.

Charles Quale mentioned the purchase of a new lawn mower and if there has been any more research regarding this issue. No one has researched anything new, again it was stated that there is concern for the loading and unloading of the mower in order to transport the mower for use at the gravel pit property.
