One thought on “NB Village Council Minutes – Oct. 20 Regular Meeting”

  1. Hey (“councilman” – name omitted by Editor) – who mows and rakes now where the village wants to put trees? Lets see I think ALL citizens mow and rake the right-aways from the sidewalk to the street. Editor’s Note

      – Hey “Tommy” – It’s not cool to call someone out by name and not list your own full name…
