Regular Monthly Meeting
The Regular Board of Supervisors meeting was called to order at the Wood River Town Hall at 6:30 pm by Chairman Joel Johnson. Present were Chairman Joel Johnson, Supervisors: Daryl Wedin, John Hennessey, Clerk Raylene Swanson, Treasurer Laura McKeag, Jeff Erickson, Larry Knoebel, Dave Huff and Sharon Huff

Little Wood Lake Association: Larry Knoebel, from the Wood Lake Association, came to speak to the Board. Larry stated that the Wood Lake Association is grateful for the usage of the Town Hall for their Lake Association meetings. Larry brought up the fact that zebra mussels are becoming a very huge problem. So far they have not made it into Little Wood Lake. The Lake Association is proposing putting up a flashing LED/solar/radar sign that would deliver a message about checking watercraft and trailers for zebra mussels. The sign would be similar in size to a highway sign. They would install and also remove the radar during the winter. Larry said “if we do nothing, we send a message that we do not care”. They also wanted to know if the Board would consider purchasing the sign at a tax exempt rate. The Lake Association would pay the Town in full prior to purchase. The issue has been tabled until October where it can be formally addressed as it was not on the Agenda.

Dave Huff/Benson Law Firm: Dave Huff presented paperwork for the quit claim deed.

Citizen Input: No input.
