Report on roads from Randy Blechinger- the new road patrolman. It was windy on Sunday November 4th- he spent the following day cutting down trees. There was a stop sign that he put back up that had fallen off - as well as a stop ahead sign that was leaning that he took down north of B on 18th. The Fire Department completed their annual inspection and recommended overflowing oil barrels should be drained and moved outside as they are a fire hazard- he has already contacted a company to have the waste oil picked up. He has been in contact with Clint to meet to become more familiar with the equipment -Clint told him that he would not be available until likely December. The shop had no more sign posts so he picked a dozen up at Barron County. The salt spinner for the plow truck was damaged as well and needed to be replaced. He reported the other day he was backing the plow truck out at the shop- he got out to make sure the door was locked and the truck started rolling- he was able to stop it from rolling into the road. There was black patch road material that had not been cleaned off the dump truck- he wondered if that was causing a problem. He has been working on the wing for the plow truck that needed to be repaired before it could be used.

This request was reviewed- Dave made a motion to approve the request seconded by Steve. There was no further discussion the motion carried. The Chairman signed off on this checklist.
Old Business- The fire department is requesting that the Town sponsor their retirement plan as it is required to have a government entity approval. Steve said he would like to know what their plan is before approving. This will be tabled until the December meeting.

Fuel Delivery- Fuel for the grader had to be ordered. When Randy met the Synergy driver- he discovered the shell that covers the fuel tanks had locks that were left open- the driver advised him that they keep it unlocked because when he would come to make deliveries nobody could find the right key to open it. Randy will work on securing the fuel shed.
