The meeting was called to order at 7:00 p.m. by Mayor Gordon Johnson. Council members present: Roger Ekern, Dale Schwanke, Howard Otis - Zoning Administrator and Judy Graham - Clerk.

Citizens Present: Beth Mitchell, Attorney Jason Kuboushek, Floyd Dunn, Amy Hanson, Larry Hanson, Attorney Eric Corson, Scott Rislove, Robert Rislove, Joyce Iverson, Tim Murphy, Paul Sorum, Ruth Cranley, Skipper & Janet Rislove, Mike Murphy, Paul Sorum, Sam Stensgard, Mr. & Mrs. Fowler, and Attorney Tom Manion.

The agenda was approved on a motion by Schwanke, seconded by Ekern, and carried.

The minutes of June 2 were reviewed and approved as read on a motion by Schwanke, seconded by Ekern, carried.

The Cooperative Way punch list was reviewed with discussion on the meeting of 6/5/09 with Cory, Jason, Gordon and Dale. There are many areas still needing attention, and some areas of poor workmanship that will need to be addressed prior to the end of the extended warranty. Profilograph was completed on Friday. The findings report is not back as yet.

After some financial discussion and looking at the possibilities of delay on the road surface upgrades, a motion was made by Schwanke, seconded by Ekern, to go ahead with the widening to 20' and resurfacing by applying tack oil to existing power swept bituminous surface, then pave with mixed asphalt to an average compacted thickness of 2" placed in 1 layer on Sherwood Street 1310' at $24,275.00 and not to place a culvert under Sherwood at Goodrich due to the fact that the water naturally runs to the east here. Carried.

Johnson asked Attorney Kuboushek to open the Hearing for the Greenslade / Rislove access. Kuboushek explained this appeal was found to be arbitrary and capricious by the court in June 2008 under statute 435.37 and ordered a hearing to take place September 2008 at which time a 66' request was approved as 33 feet maximum at Greenslade's expense. An appraiser was to be hired, resulting in a $900 value for the land to be used by Greenslade as a private drive. Attorney Murphy asked for clarification of the legal costs involved in the process, he explained. Johnson asked about recording. These actions will be recorded at Greenslade's expense on the Rislove abstract. Dunn asked about the property tax for this portion of the Rislove property. It will be taxed to Rislove because the property is still his. Greenslade can only use it for a private drive and cann .....
