MAINTENANCE MODIFICATION

J. Burget #619

This is a shared drain with Cass County, they have waived their rights. We advertised for $10/acre $10/minimum for 4 years then drop back to $3/ acre with a $10/ minimum. There is a pending project on this. There was a single phone call on the matter, Mark Hines who wanted to express that he is for the maintenance modification and the project. There are 13 landowners, 17 parcels and 615 acres.
