Planning and Zoning Commission.” Jordan seconded, motion carried unanimously.
• Maple Tree/Elm and Lake Street - Doug went to look at a tree at this intersection and says that it needs to come down. Suggested the Board members take a look at it. Pat also asked about a tree/bush on the southeast corner of Church and Vine. Brad thought it would be handled by Kendall County but Doug stated that the County is not responsible for that vegetation. Kevin discussed the daily rate service by Stephen’s Tree Service.
• Offers on International Truck – Doug opened the closed offers, which were submitted. Andy Kuntz submitted a
bid of $601.00. Another offer of $500 was made. Andy will get the truck for $601.00. Doug told Scott to get a
hold of him when he’s ready to transfer it. Doug has the title. Brad made a motion to authorize the disposal of
surplus property, the International Truck, to Andy Kuntz, for $601.00. Terry seconded, motion carried
• Ratify Slight Increase in Price for Spring Ride – Doug ordered the ride and got it last week. The town allowed
$600 but the shipping (trucking) was over $200. They reduced the price of the item but the total is still $653.00.
Jordan made a motion to ratify the price increase of the spring toy to $653 (an increase of $53), Kevin
seconded, motion carried unanimously.
• Sidewalks – Doug verified that the KC-TAP fund would allow the Village to keep the sidewalks at 4 feet since
they are existing. Doug said that the awards would be given out the first of April. As a result, the Village is
going to do a bid on the full stretch of sidewalk on Vine from Bridge to Church. Terry asked if he needs an
official proposal before the 1st and Doug stated no, we would wait to see if we get the bid. Pat asked if this will
come out of motor fuel and Doug stated that it would come out of the general fund.
• Road – Doug spoke to Guy Christensen regarding Race Street from Bridge to Church Street. He gave a rough
estimate of $27,000-$28,000 to do that section in asphalt, including graveling the sides of the road. Discussion
about how much of the road to do and the possible savings on that project if we could get more work done and
keep the contractors down here a little longer. Guy said the price might come down during the bidding process
just through competition. Board had a consensus to speak to Guy Christensen about these pending road repairs.
The pricing listed above includes engineering. It was discussed wrapping the repair onto Church Street between
Race and Vine. Terry suggested combining this meeting with his RCC meeting.
• Clean Up Days/Accept Dumpster Pricing – Kevin brought information about DC Trash of Illinois and the
pricing is $175 to drop off and $55 per ton. It is Kevin’s belief that the dumpster would cost about $340 instead
of $450. Jordan would like to stay with County Line as the pricing is fairly comparable. Kevin said we could
use DC for electronics and Jordan stated he was against that due to cost. Pat made a motion to use County Line,
ordering 4 dumpsters at a rate of $450 per dumpster, the fourth to be refunded if not used. Jordan seconded,
motion carried unanimously. Terry asked what the Village is going to do about electronics. Jordan is not
interested in using DC for electronics. Kevin will ask DC if they have a smaller electronics container. The
Board will look into other companies between now and the next meeting. Scott Smith asked what the Village is
going to do about metal. Scrapping will be handled at the event. People will be allowed to take scrap if they

Northville Township Road District Concerning Roadway Maintenance.” Terry Seconded, motion carried
unanimously. Sandy asked how and when to pay. Greg said she would get a notice from Northville.
No further business discussed. Terry made a motion to adjourn, Pat seconded. Motion carried unanimously. Adjourned
