Middle Inlet Town Chair Richard Wade reported at the board's monthly meeting on Thursday, Feb. 9 that the town will be eligible in 2018 for both T.R.I.D. and T.R.I.P. grants for road work. Wade said he will have the applications submitted by the December, 2017 deadline. Approval of these could result in approximately $130,000 of aids for town highway projects.

Fire Chief John Coddington said that Kaelyn Wojcik is the new fire department secretary.
Coddington reported that a request had been made to use the area south of the Fire Station for a vintage snowmobile rally in December. This would also serve as a fund raising function for the Department. Board members had no objections.
Jerome Pillath of M & O Assessing, the town's contracted assessor, presented a brief report on the status of the town's compliance within the Major Class Comparisons from the state Department of Revenue. The board and Pillath agreed that the necessary adjustments will be initiated in 2018.
