OTHER

Supervisor Smith stated that E. Baseline Rd from Loomis Rd. to Chippewa Rd. needs to be brined. The road is shared with Denver Township. There was a recent fatal accident on that road. The Isabella Road Commission won’t brine it because they say that Baseline Rd. is the responsibility of Denver Township and they don’t have the money to do it. Smith contacted Michigan Chloride and they would brine those two miles for a cost of $1365.00.
Motion by Smith supported by Quakenbush to pay Michigan Chloride $1365.00 to brine E. Baseline Rd from Loomis Rd. to Chippewa Rd.
Roll call vote—Yes: Gill, Ash, Huber, Smith, Quakenbush; No: None.
Motion unanimously carried.
