DALE BISHOP’S REPORT
Water and sewer operations are normal. Water shutoff list was accomplished today. EPA report card from recent inspection had one write up for cross connection control survey. JFL concession stand at North Park has been painted and looks great. Dunlap Days was a success. Copperfield sidewalks need handicap retrofit to bring them up to code. The washout on French Drive has been repaired. Village trucks are in for maintenance and corrosion resolution.
Pradeep Kataria, owner of BP gas station, addressed the board regarding his request to be considered for a pour license. He would like to put gaming machines in a separate room within the gas station to help increase revenue. He indicated that he has endured hardship due to Hy-Vee, Casey’s, and Subway opening their doors in recent years. He has had a 23%-25% decrease in sales since 2014. He doesn’t want to give up, and would like the village to help by giving him a pour liquor license. He would place a small refrigerator with beer and wine only, no hard alcohol, for the gaming customers. Jack Fennell stated that the village would be able to vote on adding an additional pour license at next months regular meeting. Aaron Barrington asked how much Mr. Kataria stands to make from gaming machines. The answer is unclear as it is hard to predict profit, but Mr. Kataria would make 33% of the gaming machine profits. Discussion followed. The board had a consensus that they would like to see this item up for vote at next month’s meeting.
