Attorney Bill Reinsch will contact the County Inspectors for the requested inspections. It was reported, the owner of Lot #284 is continuing to improve the property and bring it into compliance.

Approval of adding rip rap to the Platte River Dike, has been received from the Corps of Engineers. G. Stauffer informed the board, R. Heimes will haul the rock and K. Fuxa will use his backhoe to move the rip rap. Prices and additional permit information will be presented at the March meeting.

MISCELLANEOUS BUSINESS:

The maintenance employee reported that repairs are needed for the village tractor. The board agrees, repairs are needed. After costs of repairs are compared, repairs will be made.

Property owners voiced their concern of potential fire hazards and contamination from two fuel storage tanks at Ault's Store. The board was informed, two tanks exist at the location, one under the street and one in the basement of the building.

After discussion, the board at the recommendation of the village attorney, will request inspections of the property by the State Fire Marshal and the Department of Environmental Quality.
