The Village of Somerset typically communicates with St. Croix County regarding what they are doing and will go out anytime between 2:00 a.m. and 4:30 a.m. Rosburg asked if he could have a contact person to call early in the morning. Schachtner stated Neumann and Steel would be the people to contact. Rosburg was given both road crew employees cell phone numbers. Safeway Bus Company will communicate with Rosburg. Rosburg gave his cell phone number to the road crew employees. Safeway Bus Company representative gave maps of the bus route and the more difficult roads for travel.
Meeting adjourned at 11:15 a.m.
