Town of Washburn

October 14, 2016

Special Board Meeting called to order at 1: P.M.. Present: Bruce Hokanson, Kerry Tetzner, John Hartzell, Mike Harvey and Buz Raspotnik.

Meeting notices were properly posted in the three public places and on the Town web site.

There was a discussion with Buz Raspotnik on what was being done due to a citizen complaint. Buz talked on what was happening with Northern clearing cleaning up the brush and removal of the tree tops. Buz will be cutting the timber. He was going to do a 40% clear cut, but the Forestry Department said it was better to do a 100% clear cut. They have found out that the regrowth of the forest is much better. He talked about the Aspen and Oak trees. Many of the Oak trees were dead and the Aspen was matured and ready to be cut. He said he would leave a 50 foot buffer along the landfill.

Bruce was going to check with the Forestry on the % of cutting.

A motion and a second to adjourn.

Kerry Tetzzner , Clerk
