-Bruce Woods, James Matson, Ron Wallom, Jason Erickson and Kevin Pankonin were present to discuss the recent flooding issues at Carla Drive. Green County highway had recently replaced a culvert on Cty Hwy D with a 36” tube and it now discharges water into Carla Drive faster than the tube in Carla Dive can discharge out of the area. The town was not made a ware of the culvert replacement in advance and has discussed this with Green County Highway. The County will replace the culvert in Carla Drive with a 36” tube and will split the cost with the town. This is not a budgeted road project but the town will move forward with the replacement.
-Brian Julson inquired as to why the gates are closed off to the brush pile at the Recycling Center.

The town is only responsible for disposal of a resident’s normal household refuse.
