Aaron Patterson said that the current snow removal policy is ridiculous and should be               revised by the Public Works Committee, the Personnel, Policy and Ordinance                          Review Committee and Ms Dettling.  Ms Dettling circulated a draft of such a                                            revision.  Aaron Patterson said that the village can do a better job of snow removal in           support of our citizens.  He also said that a revised policy would be helpful for Ms                            Dettling.

 

Mr. Cameron raised the issue of cars being parked on snow streets without action                      from the police department.  Mr. Cameron said he checked the sign on East                                      Broadway and all but one a legible.  He also noted that all the signs that were                                 removed from N. Tarr St. for the SSP have not been reinstalled.  Mr. Julien or Ms                                 Dettling will check into the missing signs.

IV.            Public Participation:

 

None

 

  1. Letters and Communications:

 

                   Aaron Patterson asked Mr. Marcin if a letter written to him as a council                           person is a public record.  He was told yes.

 

                   Aaron Patterson voiced concern about the snow removal procedures in the                       village.  Mr. Cameron and Ms Thompson voiced concern that cars were being                    left on the snow streets and not being towed or ticketed.  Chief Baer said that                                council had not provided him with direction based on the 2013 snow removal                               discussions.  He further stated that most of the signs on the snow streets are                           illegible.  Aaron Patterson volunteered to drive the snow streets and verify                           the signs’ condition.

 

Ms Dettling said that she would review and revise our snow removal                                             procedures.  She said that our current procedures do not take into                                       consideration the safety of the traveling public nor pedestrians.  Ms Dettling                               said that she did not believe that our current street superintendent has the                                safety of the public in mind when it comes to snow removal.  Aaron                                            Patterson reminded council that we recently increased the number of                                       employees in that department so snow removal should be a higher priority.

 

Mr. Julien said that Ms Dettling had the full support of council on this issue.
