UNFINISHED BUSINESS

VALLEY RD
Tim Bebee gave notes regarding Valley Road to the supervisor as he was absent.
Isabella Corporation gave him a cost of approx. $1000.00 to have the private drive on Valley Road graded to improve the drive until a special assessment is done. The board suggested the residents get together and pitch in for the cost. Since it is a private drive, the township cannot pay for it. The township attorney is working on writing up an agreement for the special assessment for the improvements to the drive.
