At the February 2016 meeting we approve installing a new electric gate for the range
when it’s finished you will drive up to it put in a code and it will open for you and
close behind you after you enter. When you go to leave it will automatically open
when you approach the gate. The need for this gate is there were more and more
instances of the gate being left open. The cost for the gate was $6234.50 installed.
We also approved $45,000 to enclose the picnic shelter, replace the roof, put in 2 walk
through doors, 2 overhead doors, cement the floor and put 4 foot aprons all the way
around the building. The building will have dual use it will be to store the tractor and
skid steer in and also as an indoor shelter when needed.
We are getting bids to raise the berms up that have shrunk over the years.
The outhouses are being sided and roofed with steel.
We will have the website back up to date soon.
