Dennis Haugen was present and asked numerous questions on the multipurpose building. He was disappointed that neighboring landowners had not been contacted about this building being constructed, that there was no publication of meeting times and dates, that there were no grades on the land for drainage purposes, and that there was no performance bond required for the builder. Other questions he asked were: What is the plan for compaction of the soil? Is there a signed lease agreement with the school on the driveway use and proposed lease of the gym? Is the school lease a 9 or 12 month lease? Scott Foss was present and listened to the questions.
Discussion was held on the letter from Peterson Law Office on the use of sales tax dollars for the Kids on the Block child care facility. Mr.
