Public Comments: 

Bill Adams, from CR 621 spoke to the commissioners about a severe drainage problem at his driveway and the County Road. The culvert has become clogged up because the drainage ditches need to be cleaned out.  He would like to talk with Randy Atkin about replacing the culvert with a larger one and cleaning out the ditches to allow them to work properly. He said that he would work with the County.  He was told that Randy Atkin would contact him and he was given assurance that something will be done. 


Commissioner Glavin asked to speak about CR 738.  He reported that people in Belle wanted to have CR738 extended across the railroad tracks to connect with HWY 28.  It will take about 250 of new road, Railroad and Highway Permits to get approval.  He did attend the meeting to see just what is wanted.  He stated that the County Road is outside of Belle City Limits.


With no further business, Commissioner Glavin made the motion to adjourn and the meeting was adjourned at 9:22 AM.
