Discussion/Action-Ken Trzebiatowski came before the board to ask if the American Legion could be put on a different cleaning/pumping/inspection of their grease trap because their holding tank is a 1,0000-gal tank.  Also, the hall is not used very often for big events with cooking.  Most of the cooking is being done on the fire pit.
