Contractors shall become thoroughly familiar with the scope of the Project and all factors and items of work which will affect their Bid or the Work, whether shown or specified in documents primarily for Work of others or Work of this Contract.

Submission of a Bid shall be proof that such examinations have been made and that Bidder has recorded their own investigation and has become thoroughly familiar with all contract documents (including all addenda).

Open water along the shore with thin ice around the edges on the south shore of Lake Shamineau. Starting November 15, 2022 and into the early months of 2023. For inquiries call 763-535-1079.
Open water along the shore with thin ice around the edge on the West shores of Lake Shamineau. Starting November 2022 and early months of 2023. For inquiries call 218-821-1470.
This year, in addition to voting for the two Supervisor positions on your May Township Ballot, you will see the following two Ballot questions:
•Shall Option B, providing for the appointment of the Clerk by the Town Board be adopted for the Government of the Town? Yes/No
•Shall Option B, providing for the appointment of the Treasurer by the Town Board be adopted for the Government of the Town? Yes/No
A lack of interest by May township residents to seek the Office of Treasurer has prompted these two Ballot Questions. This would allow the Town Board to hire a non-resident of the Township to fill either of these positions. Currently, both Sylvan and Fairview Townships are successfully using these options.
If you have any questions in this regard, please contact the May Township Clerk or the May township Supervisors.
