After some discussion and documentation Les gave him, Rod said the Club fully intends to hold to its agreement to partner in dust control and road maintenance. Rod also requested that the township advise the club by early October of the anticipated costs for dust control and maintenance the following year so they can apply for funding from The Grant in Aid funding program.
