Charles Leighton stated that there was also sand hauled late at night and questioned what was delivered at that time, but stated that this is Roundy’s first year and it is a learning experience.
Don Carroll spoke with Roundy and his wife, they both apologized about the Coboro road and stated they were not sure how far to go on that road. Don explained and stated that both the Mt. Pleasant road and Coboro Road should be done by 6:30 AM.
There also have been many complaints dealing with the roughness of the road where it has suppossidly been fixed and lots of road funds invested, Gail Hipsky questioned why it was graded before the repairs, and the board questioned the same. Barriaut stated that the grader guy is a pain to deal with and that is just the way it happened. Barriault also stated that he has tried to fix the issue 3 times and felt that next year it should be fixed right, all that has been done this year is a few loads of gravel.
