IRON COUNTY—At its regular Sept. 4 meeting, the Stambaugh Township Board discussed gravel issues on a hill on East Brule Lake Road and Big Bear Road.
During the discussion, a resident asked the board about paving Big Bear Road due to frequent gravel washouts. Supervisor Eugene Pellizzaro said that both roads will be brought to the attention of the Road Commission at its next meeting.
During public comment, a resident voiced his concerns about an ongoing ordinance violation near his home, concerning unlicensed vehicles.
Trustees said they would talk to the person once again. They could issue tickets for every violation on the lot and make a decision from there.
The township’s audit for the last two years was heard and accepted by the board. According to the auditor, the township has $263,155 in its general fund. No material weaknesses were found, but the auditor recommended an annual audit.
