October 13, 2021 Town of Bear Lake Meeting Mins.

Meeting minutes from September 8th, 2021th were read by the clerk. Paul makes a motion to accept the mins. 2nd by Dave no further discussion motion carried.
New Business: Clint reported that he had called CCF to change the address where the credit card bill is sent to so that it goes to the new clerks address. He was surprised that he was required to give his SSN to verify his identity- and was not aware that his personal information is tied into that account. The only times he uses the credit card generally is at Farm & Fleet – Paul recalled the reason the credit card was opened was due to Clint not wanting to pay for items and submit them at the meeting later for reimbursement. Clint wanted to close the account- it was decided to hold off on making any changes until the next meeting. Paul will check with Dairy State Bank to see what options are to have a credit card in the Town’s name only and report back at the next meeting.
The Clerk had received a printout from Citizen Community Federal Bank with the current balance and terms of our loan which is 2.9% interest and current balance as of 10/01/21 is $317,368.89. The address for that account needs to be changed so that the coupon book for the loan is mailed to the current clerk. Paul made a motion to have the mailing address for Dairy State Bank be changed to 1340 27th Ave Rice Lake, WI 54868 Dave seconded the motion no further discussion- motion carried.
There is a balance of $34,334.72 in the Grant Account at Dairy State- which is being held in that account while we wait for confirmation of the broadband expansion plans with Mosiac Broadband moving forward.
