Enclosed is our resolution for road projects for 2004.  Since the updated request for crack seal and slag seal for Velte Road did not arrive until after our meeting, we will need to consider that request at our May 4 meeting.  I will fax our new resolution, if there is one, after that meeting.

In other board action, the gravel request of $10,285.00 was approved, with the county’s $1,000 appropriation applied to that.

The board also approved the application of chloride for one pass, 1000 gallons per mile for a cost of $7,800.00.  If funds allow, we may consider a second application later in the summer.

We look forward to working with you and will contact you after our May meeting regarding any changes to our road project resolution.

Whereas: The excellent maintenance of roads is a matter of pride in the township; and

Whereas: The township residents have approved extra voted millage for road maintenance; and

Whereas: Proper maintenance of both paved and gravel roads is a benefit to our residents;
