Lutsen waiting for snow to go before making landscape decisions at town hall

The Lutsen Town Meeting on Tuesday, March 19 was fairly  quick, as the township had just held its annual meeting the week  before. As it was the last meeting for Supervisor Joe Buttweiler, who did not run for re-election, the board of supervisors wished him well. Tim Goettl will be sworn in as supervisor at the next town meeting.
At past meetings, changes to the town hall parking lot had been discussed, but supervisors decided to hold off on decisions about the parking area until the snow is gone and they can better assess the 
parking situation. There was also discussion about landscaping around the town hall and a few minor interior things to be done.
Treasurer John Groth once again said, “We are really happy to be under budget.”
Lutsen Fire Chief Paul Goettl said there will be a wildland firefighting course in May and June with the classroom portion of the training taking place at the Lutsen Fire Hall.
Groth said the township had received three checks for the Lutsen Fire Department, each for $1,000 from the three Caribou Highlands property owners associations. The town board gratefully accepted the donation.

The next Lutsen Town Meeting will be Tuesday, April 16 at 7 p.m. at  the Town Hall at 116 Caribou Trail.
