Tracey made the motion, supported by Dotski to pay the monthly bills amounting to $3,079.70. Motion carried.

Scott Wendt of the Cheboygan County Planning Commission says that the next planning meeting will be Wednesday, December 18th at 7:30 p.m. It’s important that the groups get the information on the German and Denmark turbines.
NEW BUSINESS: Antkoviak asked the board about purchasing a new computer for his assessing work. He stated that the software would be hooked up to the Cheboygan County Equalization Department. Ginop suggested that he makes sure that the system is large enough to handle the software and that he gets support for the software and hardware. Ginop said she did not think there was any money budgeted for a computer in this fiscal year budget.
Antkoviak said it was too late for this year’s tax roll, he could wait and request a computer in next year’s budget. Cost for the software from BS & A would be $1800.00. Dotski made a motion to purchase a new computer as long as its in the current budget. Haig supported the motion.
