Village President Bart Dann reported the following:
- Basement Remodel – purchase of AC/Heaters: The back room will be painted the same color as everything else in the basement. We will have no lower cabinets on the west side of the kitchen. We would like to go to 1 sink. Pam Sigler stated that due to Health Department regulations, we MUST have a minimum of 2 sinks. The second sink will remain. Everyone will take a look at the basement at the next meeting.
- Bart suggested looking into the AC/Heater combos for the basement. It stays really cool down there in the winter months. Menards has a AC/Heater unit for $489.49. Jeane Brieland made a motion to purchase 2 units using the Community Building Fund. Nancy seconded the motion, and the motion passed unanimously.
- Cameras for Head Start: Bart received a phone call from Dennis at Head Start. They would like to know if they could install cameras in the community building if they pay for them. Pam stated she would only accept this proposal if we could turn them off. Doug asked what about when we have renters using the facility? Will they be allowed to turn them off then? Head Start has only 5-6 employees. Nancy said she was not happy that they suggested using cameras if they are unhappy with 1 employee. We will also have to post that closed-circuit cameras would be used in our facility. Someone asked about voting regulations. Pam stated that if we put cameras us, we would lose our voting place. The Board agreed unanimously that we would NOT allow the cameras to be installed.
- Brad Drew (Leaf It To Us) will get a hold of Doug this week. He is going to transplant the donated Christmas tree from Villa Grove to Camargo at Opal Thompson Park.
- Verizon Tower Update: The architect’s drawings are complete. Once they are signed off, our project will be added to their pool of projects. If selected, construction will begin in the spring.
With no further business to come before the Board, Village President Bart Dann called for adjournment at 7:41 pm.
