Pending Business:

                    Haberli Road Parking Lot– Tice reported there are 2 different projects going on at the Haberli Road Parking Lot site.  In regards to the Haberli Road Parking Lot project, we are making progress in the grant process.  The other project was by DNR order to remove all trees and woody vegetation from the town’s landfill site.  As of today that project is 90 percent complete.  The project will be complete by this weekend.



                    Clark Lake Level Dam– Haen reported he went down at the dam today and the lake level was 8.39.  Haen had mounted a mailbox at the dam to keep track of the water levels.  The level will be recorded at least once a week.  Currently, the water was free flowing and there is no ice on the dam.


                    Door Artisan Cheese Company/Reserve Liquor License– Woelfel provided an update stating Mike Brennenstuhl contacted us early last week and told us he is no longer going to pursue our reserve liquor license.  It is our understanding that Mike approached the Town of Jacksonport and their Plan Commission will make a recommendation to sell one of their reserve liquor licenses.


                    VanBellinger Status– Woelfel has received a request made by the Attorney’s to do a deposition, which is a preliminary step before it goes to trial.  We anticipate the deposition to happen on February 3rd.  The insurance company would represent the town.
