• The board authorized Administrator Kalms to send a letter of support to DC Planning for the proposed auto sales at Dovetail Acres, 10282 Highway 57.

• The board revised its determination as to when to accept Heritage Road nominations. Roads scheduled for improvements will be accepted in the future. As a result Cedar Shore Road in Ellison Bay has become a Heritage Road.

• Interviews to fill the supervisor vacancy will be held prior to the regular board meeting on April 17. The meeting is open to the public.

• A search for a town clerk was authorized by the board. The workload has become such that additional office staff has become a necessity. The finance committee had recommended to the board to seek additional office help. In discussions with Administrator Kalms, who currently is both the clerk and administrator, along with Treasurer Johnson it was decided to seek a person to fill the clerk’s position.

• The recommendation from the highway committee to award the paving contract to Northeast Asphalt was approved. Their bid came in at $451, 470 which was below what the town had budgeted. Isle View, Plateau, Wildwood and Sylvan Lane are scheduled for improvements this year.

• Reminder – the Annual Town Meeting is April 16 at 7 pm. The Business Roundtable is scheduled for April 23. All business owners in Liberty Grove are encouraged to participate in the session.
