Re-numbering ordinance system on website:  Because of several different Finance Officers over the years of 1910 to present we have had different ways of numbering ordinances we would like to get these organized and on the website.  Mayor Keolker had contacted the municipal league and presented the question if we line out the old rescinded text ext. and change the numbers on them to correspond with the way we have been numbering them today.  Municipal league said this would be ok with the board’s approval and then an ordinance to repeal or amend an old ordinance and then gave us a procedure on how to go about it.  The board agreed to start this procedure.  Mayor Keolker said he would have Heather Kari who has been doing our web site start this system.  

Claims Associates on Karl Strohschein:  Mayor Keolker informed the Commissioners that we had received confirmation back that Claims Associates had declined claims on Karl Strohschein on his vehicle damage.
