DALE BISHOP’S REPORT
All water and sewer operations are normal. The water shutoff list should be cleared by Thursday morning. We have one new pump ready for pickup, and waiting on one more from Linden and Company. A new generator is on order for the water tower. Whitacre Stephens will install it once it is delivered. We are ready to put down grass seed on the dirt at the lagoons. We will be spending $1500 on seed from Kelly Seed, Co. The accessories have been installed in the new village UTV. The water boxes are being replaced throughout the village so personnel have easier access for emergency/maintenance shutoff. The roof on village hall is scheduled for repair and replacement as weather permits.
Jack Fennell –Nothing to add regarding personnel. Colleen Slane- Police Reports were reviewed. Community Garage Sale is May 6th. We are looking into getting a dumpster for the village for any extra trash during the community wide garage sale. We would have someone sit with the dumpster to check residency of those wishing to use it. Jack Esterdahl- Regarding the sidewalk project on Legion Hall Road, the School District Superintendent has informed us that the District will be unable to help pay for the sidewalk. The original estimate was $48,000, but we received a bid from ICCI for $28,744.33. We have informed the district of the change in price in hopes that they will be able to help financially. No response yet. Brad Cooper and Tony Rapplean of the Dunlap Rec Association brought the plans for improvements at North Park. Plans include new fencing and a 4th baseball diamond. They will be getting bids for the work and get back to us. Jack Fennell added that we should be able to add another 4-5 acres to North Park. Bob Anderson- The zoning board is currently looking at ordinances regulating the number to vehicles parked on grassy areas of personal property, and signage for mini shopping centers. A motion was made by Aaron Barrington to approve Ordinance 17-04, An Ordinance Approving the Pre-Annexation Agreement Between the Village of Dunlap and Pam Probasco. Jack Esterdahl seconded the motion. Roll call vote- all approved. Motion carried. A motion was made by Bob Anderson to approve Ordinance 17-05, An Ordinance Providing for the Annexation of Certain Property owned by Pamela Probasco. Aaron Barrington seconded the motion. Roll call vote- all approved. Motion carried. Dwight Johnson reminded the board that he is currently looking for inputs for the budget for the next fiscal year. Aaron Barrington would like to add monies for lighting at dark intersections in the village. Jack Fennell added that he has been looking at new poles for the new lighting at the intersection of Legion Hall and Fourth Street. Dale added that Ameren charges $3000 per wooden pole, but decorative poles are available to less than half and would have to be metered. Discussion followed. Dale also added that he is currently investigating permanent speed bumps and speed dips for the village. Aaron Barrington made a motion to adjourn, and Sheila Taylor seconded the motion. Roll call vote- all approved. Motion carried. Meeting adjourned at 8:15 p.m. Dated April 12, 2017
