Paynesville Press - May 17, 2006

Area trail to be completed within two years

The Paynesville Township Board of Supervisors took the following actions at their meeting on Monday, May 8.

•The board was informed by chairman Don Pietsch that Meeker County is expected to provide the engineering for the section of trail to be built around the west end of Lake Koronis and along CSAH 20 on the south shore, to be built in 2007.

The section of trail from the city to Old Lake Road should be built this year, added Pietsch, while the section from the city to the Glacial Lakes State Trail might be built this year or it might need to wait until 2007 to be built.

The board also agreed to switch to the new city engineer, Bolton & Menk, for the remaining work on the trail from the city to Old Lake Road as long as the cost is the same.

•The board accepted the low quote for its crack filing project of 75 per pound from L&M Services of Belgrade. The board had requested that the quote from Astech of St. Cloud, which had been received along with the L&M quote in April, be doublechecked. Their revised bid was 80 per pound. The township plans to crack fill on four township roads this summer: 185th Street, 253rd Avenue, 283rd Avenue, and NW Koronis Road.

•The board approved an addendum to the annexation agreement for Keith and Mary Dombrovski and James and Mary Meyer, who have annexed 20.39 acres to the city. The addendum states that the taxes from an outlot, which will not be served by city sewer and water, will remain in the township until such services are needed and provided.

•The board approved the vacation of 210 feet of Third Avenue in Section 8 of the township. The street was platted parallel to the railroad in what was once North Paynesville. It was deeded to the adjoining landowner, Nate Bork.

•The board directed maintenance man Mike Jensen to remove the signs on 185th Street due to the lifting of spring weight restrictions. In order to allow haulers to access the gravel pits on 293rd Avenue, the township agreed to post a short section of 185th Street (from 293rd Avenue to Co. Rd. 130) as a seven-ton road this spring. The board agreed to continue this posting next year.

•The board approved an annual liquor license for Northern Lights Bistro and Spirits.

•The board recessed their meeting in order attend the Roseville Township Board of Supervisors meeting on Thursday, May 11, at 8 p.m. to discuss improving and maintaining Roseville Road.
