Steve Madison is currently working on his portion of the LRIP Project on Odden Rd. The board has stipulated the current drain system should remain accessible in case the system needs to be cleaned out.
Tyler Odden has mentioned that it may be in the towns’ best interest if road review was done in the fall instead of in the spring. It would give bidders more time to prepare for a project that would begin the following year instead of the current summer. Greg Odden will contact Steve Madison to choose a date to do the road review.
