LYONS TWP SPECIAL MEETING
AUGUST 24, 2023
The meeting was called to order with the Pledge to the Flag. There was 1 citizen, and 5 board members present.
TWP Business: The topic of this special meeting was to discuss roadwork to be done on Staley Road. The Ionia County Road Department sent out a quote to have fog and chip seal done on a portion of Staley Road. The letter was received after the August meeting, and they wanted to start the work in August. R Scheurer and C. Babcock had a meeting with B White and the engineer to discuss what was needed. There is a low spot on Staley Road where water sits when it rains and in the winter it is dangerously slippery. The quote that was sent out was over $12,000 and the purposed work to be done did not seem like it would fix the problem. After the meeting with B White and the engineer a new plan was drawn up to actually fix the problem and the cost was only going to cost $7600.00.
A motion to accept the bid of $7600.00 to fix the spot on Staley Road was made by R Scheurer and supported by A Hengesbach. A roll call vote was taken; R Scheurer yes, A Hengesbach yes, J Thelen yes, C Babcock yes, and J Heckman yes. Motion carried.
A motion to adjourn the meeting at 3:05 was made by R Scheurer and supported by A Hengesbach. Motion carried.
