Chairman Steve Dickinsen called the special meeting of the Town Board of the Town of Garfield to order on Thursday, May 10, at 6:30 p.m. in the town hall on Hillcrest Road.

The issue at hand is a complaint filed by Mike Taft regarding Larry Severson’s cattle getting out and causing problems for his farm.
Dickinsen explained, after consulting the town’s attorney, that the only people who can request a fence viewing by the town are the adjoining property owners. Mike Taft is not an adjoining property owner, nor is the town of Garfield. The attorney advised Taft can take civil legal action but the town cannot take any action. Dickinsen drafted a letter to Mike Taft advising him of this and also a letter to Mr. Severson. Motion to accept the letter to Mike Taft made by Fremstad, and seconded by Hanson. Motion to accept the letter to Mr. Severson made by Hanson, and seconded by Fremstad. Motion carried. David Call will hand deliver the letter to Mr. Severson. Dickinsen also read a letter he drafted to Gunther Werner advising him of the same. Motion by Hanson, seconded by Fremstad, and carried to approve the Gunther letter. Clerk to mail above letters, along with copies to Jackson County Sheriff Duane Waldera, with the exception of the Severson letter delivered by Call.
Motion to adjourn made by Hanson, seconded by Fremstad, and carried.
