Trees down at the beach. First call should John Cullen about the best way to address the issue. Brooksville will contact DEP. Ben will contact Jeffery Bunt about clearing the downed trees.

John Kimball: We need to raise the height of the bridge and re-grade the path. Lawnmower isn’t working, and the battery for the tractor needs replacing. The talk with Ciona and Mike should be an opportunity to discuss the control of the water level. There’s a hole in the tarred road that needs to be repaired. John Gray will investigate filling the hole with cold patch. Cooper Farm Rd is washed out again; needs re-working of drainage. Ellsworth is paying inspectors $15/hr. We should be pro-active and increase.
