Public Comment: Sheriff Dan Bean gave his monthly report to the township. He also updated the board on the staff additions and changes in the Sheriff’s Department.

Gary Mortensen spoke to the Board about a letter sent to the Township asking for some small fees for the extra work he does on the township’s behalf. He makes trips to the cemeteries with people to show them what graves are available, where to put markers, etc. He has done these things for the Township for thirty four years for free. He also maintains records of the cemeteries and helps the Townships where their records are incomplete. The board agreed that he should be reimbursed for his efforts and we appreciate what he does.
