DALE BISHOP’S REPORT
All water and sewer operations are normal. There are many customers left on the water
shutoff list, but it is normal for this time of the year. The last of the big water meters is
being installed at the fire department. The last meter read, using Master Meter system,
took 25 minutes. The previous method took two days and more man-hours. Dirt work at
the lagoon on the west side will be seeded this spring. The south side of the lagoon will
be discussed later in the meeting. The Christmas light decorations were taken down. FS
building work has been complete and the building is usable. Village vehicles are being
maintained. A potential buyer for the Country Companies building contacted the village.
They would like to convert the building to a residential property and install a 6-foot
privacy fence. This will go to the zoning board for their recommendation. Ms. Slane
asked if we had looked into electronic water billing to save on paper products. The
water meter will follow up.
Chuck Fugitt, Josh Martin, and Steve Stecher, of the Peoria Fire Fighters Club,
addressed the board regarding the pending purchase of the property at 203 S. 4th
Street. The group will be buying the club, remodeling it, and using it as a private club for
meetings, and parties. Josh Martin asked if the village would need to pass an ordinance
to allow for a private club. Mr. Fennell answered no. Mr. Martin responded that they are
looking forward to being a part of the Dunlap Community and plan on playing an active
role as good neighbors to the surrounding homes and businesses. Ms. Slane asked if
they would be looking at putting in a beer garden. Mr. Martin answered no, but that they
would like to eventually put in a playground at the back of the building for their kids. Bob
Anderson asked how many members are currently involved at the club. The Board is
concerned with the parking issue at this property. The answer was 134, though not all
members would be at the club at any given time. They hope to open the club up to the
public eventually, with a kitchen and bar, in order to bring in more revenue. That is,
however, something to consider in the future after construction is complete. Some
Jack Fennell –Nothing to add regarding personnel.
Colleen Slane- Police Reports were reviewed.
Jack Esterdahl- The superintendent would like to purchase a Bobcat to replace several
other pieces of equipment. The Bobcat would cost $31,000, but with trade-in credits, the
cost would fall to $13,000. The Bobcat would be more versatile, and is equipped with air
conditioning, as well as heat.
The paperwork from Frank Sturm, village engineer, for the sidewalk project on Legion
Hall Road and First Street is complete. The request for bids will go out to determine the
total cost for the School District and village budget proposals for next fiscal year.
Lori Parkhill- Nothing to add. Jack Fennell added that two properties will be annexed
into the village.
Bob Anderson- The village attorney is working on new ordinances for free standing
decks and engineered buildings. The zoning board has passed the fee changes. The
zoning board has previously discussed implementing restrictions on growing and selling
marijuana for medical marijuana dispensaries. The board is currently looking at other
communities and policies.
