DALE BISHOP’S REPORT All water and sewer operations are normal. There are only 2 customers left on the water shutoff list. The village is using Master Meter for the first full month of billing since the water meter upgrade. Adam Septic has been cleaning the lift stations. New floats have been installed at the Copperfield lift station. Buskirk Tree Service came and trimmed several trees throughout the village. We are salting and plowing due to the winter weather. A resident on S. Maplewood complained about the lack of lighting on their street. The village had a light installed. Ameren has a new spokesperson for our area, and they are a welcome addition to the operations. The roof on the village hall was not replaced, but repaired due to the cold temperatures. The roof will be replaced in the spring. We received a letter from the roofing company in which they assume any responsibility for damage to the building due to the delay/rescheduling. The engineering for the sidewalk extension on Legion Hall Road has been completed and sent on to the school district for review and approval.
