Trail Committee:

  • The trail is in with the exception of a small area that Bob Grube’s group stakes.
  • Jeff Ehrhart used his vertical tiller to work the trails and smooth things out. Others have been out mulching as well.
  • Rick Rehberg filled in the bridge on the north end that crosses near Dahl’s property. It had some large holes where the soil had been washed away.
  • There are stakes left but they need to be looked through. There are many that could be tossed.
  • Al Oberhart and Justin Ehrhart shared that we are in need of new road signs. Al Oberhart made a motion to get new road signs made. Dustin Hegemann seconded the motion.
