The November 12th, 2019 Township board meeting was called to order by Supervisor Clydus Gray. The meeting was held at the local Township building.

Minutes of the Previous Meeting

Minutes from the October meeting were read by the Clerk. As there were no corrections to be made, a motion to approve the minutes, as written, was made by Becky Cross and seconded by Dennis Johnson. Motion carried.

Old Business:

- As a follow-up to the November 6th Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan meeting, Road Commissioner Bob Drake indicated his initial objective is to document the need for funds to properly maintain Township roads. In the event of a natural disaster such as flooding, it is important that items such as road conditions, drainage issues and passibility be in as good of shape as possible. In that regard, one of the mitigation planning items will be to request as much as $1,000,000 for those items. In addition, Bob also indicated his intention to request $500,000 for railroad crossing safety.

New Business:

- The Supervisor indicated he was beginning the 2019 tax levy process for amounts to be paid in late 2020. He further indicated the levy will be due for submission to the County in late December.
