Gallagher:  Fence issue.  There is a 4 strand barb wire fence, but the fence is not in compliance with the 4 inches from the ground.  Gallagher asks that the fence be put in to comply with the statutes.  Clerk will send letter to landowner to let him know he will need to comply stating the statutes 90.02 (1J)(3).  Evenly spaced with the bottom wire 4 inches from the ground at the post.
