Old Business:

T. Hoffman attended the meeting and talked to the board about a conference they attended for LCDF.  She went over different ideas and different grants out there to help clean up the town. The first projects that she is looking at include trying to apply for grants and checking on what it would cost to work on cleaning up the lake and the ballpark.

The Board went over the water sample report. 

Letcher Summer Youth is waiting for their grant money, and the pitching mound is ready to be delivered.  The Town of Letcher will pay for the pitching mound and the LSY will reimburse the town once the grant money is received.  

Discussion was held on properties not being mowed in the town.  The board requested Meier to send letters out with the water bill to let them know what the charge would be if the Town would have to come in and mow the lawn.  

Gromer returned the John Deere tractor back to C&B Operations.  Gromer talked to the board about if they would like to have C&B reserve a tractor for the Town of Letcher for the 2022-2023 winter at the amount of $2,500.00. A motion was made by Chada, seconded by Larson, carried, to approve to have C&B reserve a tractor for the town. Gromer will call C&B and have this done.

1. Tornado Shelter;

2. Generator hook up for the big generator at the community center;

3. Access to emergency personnel because of the poor cell service in the Letcher area;

Some of the projects have been completed.
