Jerry and Doug Cox were present stating that they wanted to build an addition on to the existing garage. He was instructed to draw a map of the proposal and the superintendents would review it to make sure there was no interference with utility lines.

Andy Scholle would have a signed easement to the Town Hall by tomorrow for the alley closing.

Gas Department – Steve Wilhoit stated that 30% of the 2010 and 2011 winter gas will be purchased by May 1st. We have switched our supplier to Shell, which enables us to buy futures gas a couple of years ahead. USDI was in and replaced the regulator station at Napoleon. He will need to call them back in because of an auto accident that took out a farm tap.

Street Department – Steve Wilhoit stated that the parking lot is ready for blacktop. He also requested to have an auction on an X-Mark mower at the next Council Meeting. Information will be published in the paper.

Sewer Department – Tony Wood stated that they have rebuilt 3 modules. Also, with all the good weather the past two weeks, they are hauling fertilizer.

Osgood has still not received a signed contract from Holton Water. There is a possibility if we do not receive this contract the Water Project will not go thru. That will be a $778,000 loss of stimulus money. Council will request a meeting with the Town of Versailles to see if they would be interested in hooking up to Osgood for their water supply.
