IV. Public Participation:
Mr. Marc Findley who lives on Tarr Street, had a concern about the mowed grass clippings on Tarr Street that were left in the street clogging a damaged storm sewer drain after the lot owner had mowed on the corner of Tarr and Broadway (July 19.) He reported it to the Village office, was asked for a picture and talked with the Chief of Police about it who said it would be taken care of. He witnessed it still being there after a hard rain as he checks the area every day. He again complained to the Village office and was joined by the VA and Mayor where the situation became loud. (He handed out photos for council to see). His concern is he felt that the Village took this as a low priority situation. He felt the Village thought it wasn’t that important as they were working on another project/grant (3million$) and they took time in cleaning it up. Ms. Murray said that after she was made aware of the situation it was corrected within the hour. Ms. Thompson wanted to know who took the message and what they did about it? Got busy/forgot. Mr. Rose said that that drain has been an issue for 4 years to be fixed. Ms. Thompson followed up by saying a better job of letting people know needs to be done. Mr. Carles said it was unexceptable.

Kyle Gerdeman, an NB Eagle Scout Trp 315, presented his proposed project to Village Council to replace the Water Pollution Control Center Sign. After he gets all his final preparation he will be back to council for full approval. Ms. Goldner asked about his time frame. End of fall. Ms. Thompson wanted to know where the money was coming from. He will be going to businesses for donations.
Motion to let Kyle Gerdeman build a sign and come back with the cost. Mr. Rose made the motion. Second by Ms. Thompson. All approved.

V. Letters and Communications:
