The Village Board of the Village of Camargo met in regular session on Monday, April 11, 2022 at the Camargo Community Building.  The meeting was called to order at 7:00 pm by Village President Bart Dann.  Roll call found the following trustees present: Nancy George, Jim Hardway, Jim Lansford, Jeane Brieland, Laura Miller, and Gary Gilpin.  Village Superintendent Doug Raymer and Village Water Superintendent Kyle Raymer were both present; as was Village Treasuer Shirley Badman.

  1. Jackie Wells, Camargo Township District Library: Jackie came to the meeting to share several things from the library.  To begin with she would like to explain that anyone that lives in the Villa Grove School District is eligible for a FREE library card.  She stated that pre-COVID, they were looking a between 2500-2700 rentals.  Now they are down to 1700-1800 rentals.  Secondly, they are starting some new programs and resurrecting some older ones.  Anyone over the age of 50 can play BINGO on the 1st Wednesday of every month at 1pm.  They are looking to start an adult craft on the 1st Thursday of every month at 10am.  Jackie is working closely with the Villa Grove Chamber of Commerce and the Villa Grove Rotary.  She will share our information with both clubs.  She also shared that she feels that when they share flyers for upcoming events, they have a better turn out than if they only post the event on social media.  Lastly, Jackie shared that besides weekly story time at 3:30pm on Thursdays, the library offers the following: free Wi-Fi, free eBooks through 2 different apps, free story times, free summer reading groups, and free printing (up to 10 pages) for homework purposes.


  1. Three Guys Concrete: Three Guys Concrete submitted a bid for gutter repair and replacement.  Tom Bushur and Randy Frick are both interested in placing bids.  We might have to do this project in sections.  Any decision making has been tabled until further review.
