Add the #9PM Routine to lockup cars, close garage, shut windows and secure doors. Hope to post on facebook. The police department would like to reach out to young people with a Communication Program which hopes to include cartoon booklets available for kids K to Pre-K. The first responders have created a colored sticker program for residents with special needs (blind, non-verbal, deaf, etc.) to put on their front windows so when a first responder would be dispatched to that residence in an emergency, the stickers will help the first responders find the best way to help those in need.
JC distributed to us information on the Smart VMS, Variable Message Sign Trailer information. He discussed the options available on this equipment such as the license plate reader. This equipment may be useful to Wilbur Park and the County Police Department. The board members need to read and get more familiar with all of the options to make an educated decision.
JC is looking into investing some of the Village’s cash with Great Southern Bank.
5. Road & Building Commissioner’s Report presented by Mike Edwards.
A resident on Weber Road requested information needed to add a deck on their residence. Fence request on Overton. And Occupancy Permits for Philo and Rosemary.
Still waiting for a contract for the street signs requested.
Stone entrances at Wayne need a little maintenance. Bob checking into who is responsible for their maintenance.
6. Waste Management Report presented by Heidi Warren.
Nothing to report.
7. Village Clerk Report presented by Donna Gravatt.
Does anyone know any person who wants to run for the Board of Trustees? Do any of the current members want to perform in a different role than they are currently?
8. Chairman’s Report presented by Neal Vohsen.
Neal was notified of some residents burning trash and/or leaves. If this happens, call the police or fire departments.
Two positions are available in the next election which is April 7, 2020. Mike said he will run again for a Trustee position. Unfortunately, JC said he wants to retire and will not be running.
Still messing with the bushes on Kathleen. One more notice to be sent to make sure we give the home owner 10 days to respond. Then Dad and Lad will be called to trim the bush. Make sure we get pictures with a tape measure to back up what is trimmed. We may need paperwork/backup for a later date.
The trailer on Autumn is gone.
Neal put reflective tall markers in the circle on Autumn. Then someone put the current bottles in the circles on top of the reflective markers. Apparently a car crashed thru the circle breaking the markers and the bottles. Options for the circle: set a concrete curb; get rid of the circle altogether; keep replacing markers. Can
fire trucks and trash trucks get thru the circle when cars are parked there? We need to try to get residents to come to the meeting so they can resolve the circle issue to their satisfaction.
Apparently there is a day care center being conducted on Autumn.
9. Motion to adjourn the meeting made by Neal, JC seconded the motion. Meeting adjourned at 8:21.
