*Purvis moved, Quinn seconded to approve the previous meetings minutes. (Carried).  

*Correspondence: Annual Firemen’s Banquet-February 16th.    

*Public Comment: Samantha Laskowski asked about flood proofing with a seawall barrier. If it’s like a retaining wall of sorts, it would not require a permit and we don’t have restrictions against it.     

*Utility business: PWM Wayne Haugrud gave a report on a few items.  

*No old business.

*Library Solar Project: Samantha Laskowski and Becky Comeau were present to explain the two of them, along with two others, have formed La Farge Solar, LLC, to purchase the solar array for the library.  

They pay the cost up front, saving the library money, then are paid back thru tax incentives, grant funds, etc. In the end of 6 years, the library will be clear of any costs. With this, they need a Renewable Energy Services Agency agreement. This will be taken to our Attorney for review, then brought back to the March meeting for approval. And, since they own the panels, they will need to pay the insurance coverage.
