Francis Fruehan spoke regarding correction of term expiration for the Silver Lake Municipal Authority. It had come to his attention that there is an expired term on the Silver Lake Municipal Authority which is currently being fileld by a hold over member.  Ther term expired at the end of 2011 and is currently being filled by holdover member ick Demaree.  At the 2012 Organizational Meeting, we were not aware the term hd expired.  We need to either reappoint him or appoint someone else to fill the balance of this term, which has approximately 3 years, 4 months remaining.  This term will expire at the end of 2016.    Mr. Fruehan said each year one member’s term should expire.  It was discovered Mr. Demaree’s term had been overlooked. He would either need to be reappointed or appoint someone new.  The term will expire at the end of 2016.  No motion was received to reappoint Nick Demaree.  Francis Fruehan said he has had several individuals express an interest in serving on the Municipal Board.  Francis Fruehan made a motion to appoint Julie Perlick, Evan Everitt seconded; Sandy Brink abstained.  Motion approved.

Francis Fruehan spoke in regards to an advertised work session with Choconut Township and the Fire Company.  Mr. Fruehan said the Fire Company will be facing some large expenses in the future and has asked for Act 13 funds to assist in purchasing airpacks.  This will be looked at when budgets are being setup for 2014.

Francis Fruehan read the police report with 25 incidents for the month of August.

Evan Everitt gave the road report.  A Dirt/Gravel Road project has been awarded for Woodland Road in the amount of $45,000.  There are only a few roads left to finish up for the year.  Evan Everitt explained Silver Lake did not renew the agility agreement.  He said the state is behind on their projects with other municipalities and the only work Silver Lake requested with stone/oil roads.
