Victor Twp. to offer dust control

Residents of Victor Township who would like dust control services should contact the township by Friday, May 22, clerk Sharon Glessing said. The cost is 50 cents per foot. The township will be sending out a letter with details, Glessing said.

At their meeting last Monday, township officials discussed the cost of gravel. “The cost is getting higher,” Glessing said. “Each year, between one-fourth and one-third of Victor Township roads need to be regraveled.”

Board members also mentioned that a culvert in the township may be plugged with dirt, and that township maintenance will be checking on it, Glessing said.

Starting Tuesday, May 12, Middleville Township meetings will take place at 7:30 p.m. instead of 8 p.m., clerk Joey Berg said. At the meeting Tuesday, Jim Raymond became the new township meeting chairman, Berg said.

Middleville Township also renewed a mining permit for Marvin and Jordan Ortquist.

Stockholm Township purchased a trailer for office space for $8,000, clerk Diane Johnson said. At the meeting last Monday, the township also accepted a gravel quote bid from Annandale Rock Products for $9.10 per cubic yard.

An appreciation party took place Thursday for board member Byron Sangren for his 40 years of dedicated service.

Bergen Twp. to rebuild Zero Avenue

Rebuilding Zero Avenue is Bergen Township’s summer project, clerk Amy Meyer said. At a special meeting Tuesday, Bergen Township officials approved the hiring of an engineer to develop specifications for the project. Meyer said the township board hopes to have the specifications ready for approval by its next meeting, Thursday, May 14.

Woodland Twp. enters road agreement

At a joint meeting between the Waverly City Council and Woodland Township March 30, officials discussed the renewal of an agreement with the City of Waverly for road maintenance on Emerson Avenue between Highway 12 and 70th Street. Woodland Township approved the agreement at its regular meeting last Monday, and the Waverly City Council approved it at its meeting April 14.

Under the agreement, Woodland Township will do routine inspections, graveling, mowing (grass and brush maintenance), grading, snowplowing, signing, and weed removal. The City of Waverly will pay Woodland for 50 percent of the expenses.

These one-mile stretches will remain gravel unless development in Waverly occurs near these roads. If the road is ever paved, it will become the city’s responsibility.

The agreement will be reviewed every three years.
