Surveyor Ward explained that he had received an email from Jim Thayer with concern that nothing has been started with this project.  He explained that last contact with Mike Conquest with Ozinga was about a month ago, and that they were then having problems finding contractors to do the work that they were needing done.  Attorney Loy suggested that they draft a letter to send to Ozinga.  Surveyor Ward will get with Attorney Loy to get that accomplished.


Surveyor provided an update as to what projects the office has been working on.  There have been to Bid Specification Packets sent out on two Maintenance Projects.  Surveyor Ward and Deputy Surveyor Sundy have surveyed 3 other ditches/tiles and are working on plans for those.

Surveyor Ward met with Mike Yelton with the Town of Wolcott.  Petitions were sent to Mr. Yelton for the Pugh Ditch and the Pugh Tile for work that they’re wanting to do involving some retention ponds, the office is still waiting for that to be returned.

Work has started on the Crowell Wells Project.

Surveyor Ward has a meeting scheduled this month in regards to the Fern McKillip permitting process.


There being no further business to come before the board, their meeting was adjourned.
