OTHER BUSINESS

 

Berlon Weeks spoke to the Board and presented a letter for their review from the Town of Bronson to FEMA proposing the Town of Bronson be allowed to gauge the ditches to determine if it does or does not flood.  If flooding is found to take place, they will pay the amounts assessed for flood insurance, and if not, then they will go back and look at it again to see if this is truly not what is happening.  If a moratorium is granted, it would allow Bronson to do a master stormwater plan on the ditch, to get rights to it and clean it out and use it as it was originally designed.

Comm. Rooks made a motion to join with the Town of Bronson in their letter of request to FEMA.  Second was made by Comm. Drew and the MOTION CARRIES.
