Oberland Park


-Glen presented a letter and waiver to be signed he received from Inervest regarding damage caused to the parking lot and hay field when the well was pulled. Inverness claims they are not liable as there was no access road which they never put in when well installed. Glen will respond stating trustees will not sign waiver until damage is taken care of. He will request $500 to reseed hay field and$1089 to repair parking lot and clean up brush left.

-Les asked if it was OK to stockpile gravel or grinding at the NE corner of the parking lot which he can use to shore up ground by his sap collecting tanks.

-Electrical service not going to be completed this year as it has been too wet, will wait for spring to complete.

-Wayne and Glen attended the rec board meeting. Rec board agreed to cover ½ the cost of fertilizing the soccer fields. Next year plan to fertize 3x.

-the new field 5 was used by the high school football teanm for practice this year.


Rt. 87 and Auburn Corner/Veterans Park

-the fundraising committee would like some input on the plans for the park.

-Glen met with Dan McClelland of Impulliti Landscaping who will help stake out the Gazebo site so can get the driveway permit from the county. County will install the culvert pipe at a coat of $75.00.

-Driveway will be located opposite south end of the townhall parking lot.

-Gazebo has a 12” grade difference between ends so may not need steps. The pointed end of the gazebo will face north towards the tank.


Open board position :a couple applications have come in, trustees reviewing for the person with the right fit. Will make a decision after the first of the year.
