However apparent was the absence of a village finance director. The village’s web site now has an announcement to fill the place.
There were being no committee meeting or specific committee reviews, so the council moved to laws. The sole piece of laws to look at was an unexpected emergency for the order of the new utility billing application discussed in the past couple months.
The Village experienced resolved to go from an arrangement with Civica-CMI to a new just one with Muni-Hyperlink.

The grant would offer more than enough for 10-12 cameras that would supply stability protection for the park, the pool and the fountain. The present-day camera method has only two practical cameras and no motion cameras.divMayor Greg White asked for thought to near the alley in between Hollywood and Vine and the outdated Dime Shop on the west side of the square for an space exactly where there are children’s video games, tables and chairs and planters. A lot dialogue ensued above concern for residents of the properties.
”What about unexpected emergency entry for people in those structures? How can the fire division or EMS get accessibility?” asked council member Barbara Rife.
”I am anxious that folks won’t get deliveries mainly because there will be nowhere to park. What about deliveries for individuals who dwell in individuals buildings? Where will individuals park?” additional Councilwoman Lois Beamer.
Mayor White conceded that he could talk with Hearth Chief Todd Weidenhammer, introducing, “I really do not feel it is likely to be a challenge.” It was agreed that the program forward would be for Village Solicitor, Harvey Hyman to study the legalities, and the mayor would consult the fire main.
Local citizens Jon Snodgrass and Karen Sunday introduced to council the thought of introducing “hometown hero” banners on the light-weight and utility poles in the village.

Snodgrass and Sunday determined that they needed council acceptance in order to be permitted to put banners on AEP poles.
The banners in problem would be either 2’x3’ (at a expense of $100) or 2’x4’ (at a price of $115). Each and every one would include things like the identify and picture of an lively duty member of the armed forces or a veteran. Snodgrass and Sunday experienced fulfilled with the neighborhood VFW and claimed that the business was “onboard” with the concept.
Questioned how prolonged the banners would be up, Snodgrass explained, “We have imagined about putting them up on Memorial Day and using them down on Veterans’ Day. Of training course, as they get worn, we would just take them down.” Sunday added, “The banners generally past for two to a few many years.”
In get to have a banner on a single of the poles, an software has to be crammed out, evidence of military services service presented and a picture submitted. “The VFW has mentioned they would invest in brackets, and we believed we would talk to individuals to fork out for the banners,” said Sunday.
The mayor’s only concern was that the two continue to be in contact with Vance for any problems. Council accepted the proposal with the caveat that they proceed to do the job on logistics like who will cling/get down the banners, cooperation with other initiatives that use the exact poles for banners, and continue to be in contact with the metropolis administrator.
