Chair Gondeck reported that he and Bob Erickson met with the engineer and Scott Jarnot regarding the problems. They will have the base scraped and fabric placed on about 700 feet of the roadway. After considerable discussion, it was agreed that Bob Erickson should check several locations on the road for soil and base quality. This part of the road will not be ready for curb and gutter until spring. Supervisor Gondeck made a motion to have an addition made to the developerís agreement allowing the developer to remove brush trees from the road right of way and replace them with a berm and pine trees. The developer is also agreeing to maintain the ditch. The motion was seconded by Supervisor McIntosh and passed. The Chair will advise the developer and our building inspector that no building permits will be issued and the final plat will not be signed until the developerís agreement is signed.

Supervisor Gondeck will make copies of the application for each board member.
