Township creates vice-chair position

By Michael Jacobson

The Paynesville Township Board of Supervisors took the following actions at their meeting on Monday, Nov. 14.

*The board passed a resolution to create the position of vice-chair of the board and then elected supervisor Pat Meagher as vice-chair.

*The board voted to share expenses for fixing some spots in the asphalt surface on Cyrilla Beach Road, which lies partly in Paynesville Township but serves only Eden Lake residents who live on the peninsula.

An agreement between Paynesville Township and Eden Lake Township on the road is several years old and has expired. Township clerk Don Wiese was asked to bring a new agreement back to each board for signing. They directed that the new agreement have no expiration date but could be cancelled by either board.

*The board approved allowing Bob Stoneburner to combine two lots into one in his Koronis Heights Development, increasing the size of the lot to about 30,000 square feet. The lot lies just east of Koronis Hills Golf Course. Stoneburner is also planning to improve the roads in the development.

The trail from the city of Paynesville to Veteran's Memorial Park, to be constructed in 2006, also runs through Koronis Heights. The board also discussed doing the dirt work for the trail while the machinery was on site to improve the roads, though no decision was made on this.

*The board passed a resolution requiring Stearns County not to process or record any subdivison of land which has not received from Paynesville Township a certification of compliance with the township's subdivision ordinance. This ensures that the township will be able to receive its new parkland dedication assessment.

*The board approved a gambling permit for the Koronis Chapter of Ducks Unlimited for their annual banquet in April 2006.

*The board will not meet again until Monday, Dec. 19, at 8 p.m. Its winter meeting schedule remains: Monday, Dec. 19, at 8 p.m.; Monday, Feb. 13, at 8 p.m.; Monday, March 13, at 8 p.m.; Tuesday, March 14, at 8 p.m. (annual meeting); and Thursday, March 16, at 8 p.m.

This year, the board has agreed to keep all their meetings at 8 p.m. Again this year, the board will not meet in January. They will resume holding two monthly meetings - on the second and fourth Mondays of the month - in April 2006.
