Supervisor Report – March 12, 2019

1. I would like to take a moment to express the township’s loss of our beloved board member Jim Krempa. Jim sat on the Township Board, Planning Commission, and Zoning Board of Appeals for many years and offered a unique perspective and insight. He will be missed.
As a result, we have a vacancy on the township board and will be taking letters of intent to fill this position. If you are interested in serving your community, please submit your letter to the Burt Township Board, P.O. Box 430, Grand Marais, MI 49839.

2. The US Coast Guard informed the township that they will be condemning their dock that was used by the NPS boat and the Burt 2. We are brainstorming ideas to keep the boats available for fast emergency response for log slide rescues, water rescues, and search and rescues. The township board has been asked to allow the National Park Service Sea Ark 23Ft. Rescue/Patrol boat to dock on our wall for a seasonal docking fee. We are proud to work with the National Park to ensure the safety of our boaters.

3. Burt Township was able to offer free classes to the community to encourage people to get out of their home, exercise, and socialize through the winter months.

– Balance Class taught by Barb Massey is scheduled to run until the end of April. Classes are currently Mondays, 10 AM at the Community Center. Barb likes to include healthy habits in her classes. She’s talked about food safety, heart failure, wellness checks, diabetes, and Medicare, and advance directives.

– Stretch Class taught by Toni Whaley is scheduled to run until the 20th of March. Classes are currently Wednesdays, 10 AM at the Community Center. This is a popular class using yoga stretches and other basic stretching techniques to keep your body flexible.

-Lite Weights taught by Leisa Dixon runs until the end of April. Classes are currently Thursday, 10 AM at the Community Center. A great workout using 3lb weights while moving to music.

I would personally like to thank all three of these talented instructors who took the time out of their busy schedules to commit to making our community healthier.
