5. Road & Building Commissioner’s Report presented by Mike Edwards.
Looking for a second bid for the pothole and road repairs.
The first house on Dana has installed a shed/carport in their backyard. It was brought to the Board’s attention by another resident. No permits were issued. The same house has also installed Styrofoam on the exterior of the house. Do the residents of Wilbur Park want a house that has siding or stucco? Do we want a house that is not similar than the others? Mike will issue a stop order so we can review what is going on.
Sheds are ok if not blocking driveways or windows, are in good repair and have a vermin-proof floor.
One resident on Kathleen has complained that someone is parking over the curb on her property. Reflectors have been installed. Hopefully that will help the issue.
Two houses on Rosemary have applied for occupancy permits
One house on Weber is remodeling and replacing water lines.
Fast Signs need a schedule. Will add lines on their quote to accept to get started.
An Ordinance will need to be drawn up so Neal can sign for signs and street maintenance.
Do members of the board need to have ID badges so the residents know who they are when we knock on their doors?
6. Waste Management Report presented by Heidi Warren.
Nothing to report.
It seems that Waste Management will pick up yard waste this time of year.
7. Village Clerk Report presented by Donna Gravatt.
Three candidates filed for positions on the Board: JC, Mike and Kathleen.
All invoices to the Board of Election Commissioners need to be paid before election. All checks issued from Wilbur Park require two signatures.
8. Chairman’s Report presented by Neal Vohsen.
Shrubs on Kathleen have been taken care of by Dad and Lad. They did not charge us. But we need to send them a thank you note and a gift card for lunch. Homeowner has not responded to the shrub maintenance.
Still need to decide what to do with Prop P money. Should we increase patrols?
In the near future: look into moving the streetlight on Autumn and getting rid of the circle that has been causing so many issues.
The board discussed what type of police presence we had in the past. We cannot afford a full-time dedicated officer and car and don’t think having bikes is effective.
9. Motion to adjourn the meeting made by Neal and Heidi seconded the motion. Meeting adjourned at 8:31.
