NEW BUSINESS

A discussion was held on multiple issues pertaining to the renters of the house north of the library. The board agreed that a fence would ease a lot of the problems. Pins from the survey have been uncovered and Hopkins told the owner to leave the fence posts and rope in place as a request for a fence was in motion. Hopkins was directed to get fence bids and to acquire a building permit from the village.

A budget meeting was discussed and two members will take a look at the material and determine a date in the future for a budget meeting.
