The Village Board of the Village of Camargo met in Special Session on Monday, August 21, 2023 at the Camargo Community Building.

PUBLIC COMMENT: N/A
CONSENT AGENDA: Nancy George made a motion to approve the consent agenda with the changes to the ambulance bill to Villa Grove ($10,084 and NOT $11,230). Jim Lansford seconded the motion, and the motion passed unanimously.
- Discussion and Approval of Run for Nash Donation
Nash Foreman is a child community member that has been diagnosed with Vanishing White Matter. His family runs 3Cs in Camargo, and they are doing a fundraiser for Nash’s impending medical bills. Nancy George made a motion to donate $100 for the fundraiser, Jeane Breiland seconded the motion, and the motion passed unanimously.
- Approval of Arrow Ambulance Bill and Contract
Village President Bart Dann and Village Clerk Salisa Dann worked many hours sifting through a report provided by the City of Villa Grove. This report listed every ambulance call that was charged to the City. The City of Villa Grove then breaks down the contract with other municipalities that have an agreement with Villa Grove to provide ambulance services to their residents. Many of the calls that were charged to the Village did not actually belong to the Village. These calls were outside Village limits. Bart had emailed Arrow Ambulance and requested that all calls for the 2023 year, please be sent to us on a monthly basis. Calls can then be directed to the correct agency. The City of Villa Grove will only bill one a year – even though we will be receiving monthly reports. By spending the time to sort through the addresses, the bill for ambulance services for the 2022 year went from $11,230 to $10,084. Jim Hardway made a motion to approve the Arrow Ambulance Contract with the City of Villa Grove. Jim Lansford seconded the motion, and the motion passed unanimously.
- Approval of Camargo Sign
Several trustees were not in favor of the new design. Several would like to see quotes from other companies. Village Clerk Salisa Dann said she would find a quote from another company and bring it to the next meeting. This item was tabled until the September meeting.
