TREASURER’S REPORT Dwight Johnson reported a normal month of spending, and on budget. The Village received $30,000 in Real Estate Tax, and $3,000 in MFT monies.

DALE BISHOP’S REPORT All water and sewer operations are normal. Shell station had massive water leak in car wash. There are only 48 more water meters to be upgraded in the village. North Park window was vandalized, and has been replaced. The sidewalk by the school district bus barn holds water, so the drain was lowered. The sidewalk should be raised to alleviate the rest of the problem. The trucks for snowplow operations are ready for winter. Illinois American main water line blew apart 3 times this week, and was repaired each time. We are still working with them to monitor water tower.
COMMITTEE REPORTS Jack Fennell –Nothing to add regarding personnel. Colleen Slane- Police Reports were reviewed. Halloween trick or treating hours will be 5:30-8:00 pm. Christmas light contest will be from 15-24 December.
Jack Esterdahl- Marcus, park superintendent, has passed on some information for needed improvements. DRA would like to replace fencing on 1.5 baseball diamonds, and has $30K to spend. Although the village doesn’t have this expense in the budget, we may be able help with the worst parts. Also the mulch at Copperfield park has deteriorated, and is in need of replacement. Cost would be $2500 to replace with regular wood mulch, or $4500 for rubber mulch. Copperfield park is also in need of a new concrete trash can, at a cost of $1200. Copperfield HOA will be contacted regarding splitting the cost of expenditures.
Jack Fennell added Bob Anderson to the water committee and Sheila Taylor will head the animal protection committee. He also informed the board about the land south of Copperfield subdivision. Owners are looking to annex into the village and subdivide. Sheila Taylor would like to review all animal control reports before we renew their contract.
