President Heideman recognized Shelly Ponton, a member of the Planning Commission who was present to update the board on activities of their board and to answer questions the board may have. Shelly did not have anything new to report and the board didn’t have any questions. Their board will be meeting tomorrow night.

President Heideman brought the following before the board for discussion and/or action:


Trustee April Lyons had no report.

Trustee Russ Hull had no report but asked if anyone has seen a young boy riding a segway electric scooter. Russ added the child wasn’t looking and almost got hit.

Trustee Jeremy Beherns had no report.

Trustee Angie Gray had no report.

Trustee Shannon Meier asked when Troy works at the village hall, who is supposed to check the messages on our answering machine and was advised it was set up for the utility clerk and Troy should check/answer the messages. Troy didn’t want anyone to think he was being nosey and wanted to make sure before he checked the messages. Shannon asked if a decision has been made on the request for a park bench in memory of Gary Hemp. Juanetta contacted Lisa Hanson (who has nothing to do with decision making) and asked when the board was going to make a decision. President Heideman reported he contacted Juanetta and advised her bench could not be put in the location she was requesting (facing the stage on the north side of the sidewalk) and another location would have to be selected.

Trustee Ed Tholen had no report.

Clerk Donna Schmitz had no report.

As there was no further business to come before the board Shannon Meier moved to adjourn the meeting at 7:45 p.m., seconded by April Lyons and the motion passed.

The next scheduled meeting will be Monday, July 2, 2018 at the village hall.
