Maynard reported for the Building and Grounds Committee that the water damage in the Police Department office may be coming from the adjacent building. A large washout spot has been located at the back of the adjacent building, which has been caused by rain running off the roof. Maynard discussed other hazards that were discovered as well at the adjacent building such as rotted stoop posts and exposed wires. Maynard stated that DMJ has removed the paneling from the office wall but not the plaster. The exposed brick is too unstable to have the plaster removed from it. Maynard was told by DMJ that the source of the moisture must be found before the inside wall can be replaced otherwise, the wall will deteriorate again quickly. Maynard will request a quote from DMJ for repairing the source of the moisture problem and the damaged brick. Jordan has agreed to research prices for dehumidifiers for the basement and Police Department.

Burgener reported for the Street and Alley Committee that some of the roots that were obstructing drainage on the South end of town have been cut away from the tile. The cost for work done so far is $4,000.00. Burgener reported that eight trees must be removed along South Main Street to prevent further root damage. Two other trees have been selected for removal that are decayed and causing property damage. After discussion Burgener made the motion to approve Hamilton Tree Service for removing a large tree at the corner of Cherry and Macon for $1,500.00 and a tree at the corner of West Main and Ponting for $800.00. The Street and Alley Department will remove the remaining eight trees along South Main Street, Ruot seconded. Council voting Yes: Maynard, Burgener, Ruot, Mahone and Reschke. No: None.

Ruot reported for the Police Committee that Chief Maynard gave a very informative directive on the State rules for vehicle pursuit. All officers were in attendance. Ruot also informed Council that the part time officers will graduate on November 6th. Council members are invited to attend.

Mahone called on Jordan to report for the Water and Sewer Committee. Jordan stated that the lift station work is 98{d3bb7c3d20bb2c333f8bbb4cc4dee311415bccd1d2e8a98d1fef6c9530e85137} complete and the final payout for Curry Construction will be presented for approval at the next Regular Meeting if the bill has been received by then.

Attorney Antoline reported that Mr. Hudson has complied with the Village’s request to repair his downtown building. After discussion about the new laws pertaining to golf carts Attorney Antoline agreed to prepare an ordinance that will best suit the Village’s needs.
