RACINE – Racine Village Council approved several agenda items during its October meeting, as well as observing a moment of silence for the victims and families of the Las Vegas shooting.
Mayor Scott Hill reported that the contractor on the waterline project had been in the village and completed the “punch list” of items. This allows council to authorize the final payment on the project.
Council authorized the mayor, if needed, to use state highway funds to purchase an accessory piece for an item that is being paid out of the water replacement fund.
The rewiring of the emergency lighting system on the brush truck was approved at an approximate cost of $1,600. This has been an issue for some time.
Council approved sending letters to two property owners regarding grass needing cut, and also to notify a property owner of old tires littering the property.
The mayor was authorized to proceed with renting half of a room in the upstairs to the Southern Local School District Treasurer for record storage.
Old fine in the amount of $205 were collected in September.
Present at the meeting were Mayor Hill, Fiscal Officer Janet Krider, Village Administrator John Holman, and council members Robert Beegle, Ron Clark, George Cummins, Chad Hubbard, Jeff Morris and Ian Wise.
The next meeting is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. on Nov. 6.
