Old Business:

Discussion was held on the water sample report and meters not working. Chada contacted Krohmer Plumbing for an estimate to fix water meters.  

Discussion was held on past due accounts. Letters have been mailed.  

The Board received one application for the custodian position. A motion was made by Gromer, seconded by Chada, carried to approve to hire Brooke Easton for the custodian position at $18.50 an hour. 

Meier will be contacting Brooke Easton and have her meet with Larson to go over all the duties for the custodian position.  

Backboards for Rossy Park have been purchased and should be delivered by the end of April.  

At that time, the Board will talk to 4-H about setting up a day to install the backboards. 

An ad was placed in the paper for a summer help position. No one has applied for the maintenance worker position at this time.  

K. Stach attended the meeting to discuss the roof on the fire department side. It looks as though there are some places that need to be sealed. Area Steel is going to have someone come out and look at it.  

P. Grassel attended the meeting regarding keeping vehicles from driving around the lake. The vehicles are leaving ruts in the path around the lake. The Board is going to look into signage that would say Authorized Vehicles Only. Samples will be brought to the next board meeting to decide which to order.  

New Business:

Discussion was held on the water sample report.  

Discussion was held on the TTHM Water Sample Report.  

Estimates were received from Mitchell Plumbing; they estimate it would be approximately $210 on up for installing, and Krohmer Plumbing estimated it would be approximately $550.00.  

The Board is going to call CorInsurance to see, if Chada or Gromer install, would they be covered under the town insurance.

Board members will see what District III has for loans for updating water meters for the town.
