New Business:

A motion was made by Supervisor Fulcher , seconded by Chairman Aho to hold the regular December, January and February board meetings at the clerk’s address, 9998 East Lind Rd., Angora because of the colder temperatures. The kitchen at the town hall is warm but too small for meetings and the main part of the hall is kept at lower temps during winter and it is costly to bring the temp up for meetings. Motion passed unanimously. The clerk will publish and post the change.

Supervisor Chapman made a motion to adjourn at 7:54 p.m.. Seconded by Supervisor Fulcher.
Motion carried unanimously.

Chairman Keith Aho
Clerk Pat Chapman
