Request to speak Amanda & Tim Swanson -  (Mike came in during this discussion at 6:36 pm) Tim said they have a hill in the front of their property, and they would like to landscape the hill to make it a more gradual slope instead of a drop off so that it is easier to mow.  Beth said she would be concerned with drainage issues.  Mike said they would need to make sure to put grass seed in before a big rain and if we know that it is not a driveway going in.
