Lloyd Property – Agreement:  Supervisor Uhl discussed the “Draft” Burial Site Exchange Agreement and a few changes that had been made within it.  Originally the Lloyds had requested 40 grave sites but because the cemetery is sectioned with 6 graves in a section, it would be better to change the number of grave to 42 graves and set aside 7 sections for their family members.   Due to tax issue concerns, the Lloyds would like to complete this agreement before the end of 2018.  The Lloyds are to provide us with the list of deed holder names and addresses to be designated for each grave.   Trustee CJ moved to allow the Supervisor and Clerk to finalize the Burial Site Exchange Agreement to accept the property from the Lloyds Farms Inc. in exchange for giving them 42 burial sites as provided and named by them.  Treasurer Sontag supported.  Motion carried.
