Engineer Travis Malone updated the board on Secondary Roads projects. He is meeting with the City of Corning to go over easements for the Hull St. Bridge project and Malone presented the project title to be signed. We have received $50,000 for Juniper Ave from USDA. $40,000 from FEMA has been received with an additional $10,000 from FEMA coming this week. There were 20 applicants for the 2 open positions at Secondary Roads. Malone will be doing interviews this week and next. A motor grader is being brought to Secondary Road for a test drive as we are on schedule to replace one this year. Malone is also looking at getting rid of two older bulldozers that Secondary Roads currently has to upgrade to one vehicle.

Birt moved, seconded by Shipley to approve the 2020 Weed Commissioner Report. All supervisors voted aye.  Motion carried. 

             Beth Waddle discussed with the board the application to Iowa Great Places for the sidewalks and wayfinding signs.  As a result of the DOT pushing back the timeline for fixing Highway 148 running through Corning, Waddle recommended waiting until the projects could correlate and apply at that time.
