PUBLIC WORKS: Chris reported that the water tower people were going to be here next week to paint patch and to finish the upper part of the screen and rail system so that they can safely attach their harness in while climbing the tower. The roof on the concession stand/storage building was replaced last Friday it was all done by volunteers, the village paid for the parts. The sinks at the Village Hall were repaired and will now pass inspection. Jerry Sprick did the repairs. The John Deere Tractor had a component go out that controls high speed. The said that there was a major component coverage, they said that they are going to cover this as it was reported before the warranty was up but the salesman was fired and they did not follow up on his calls. The board wants us to investigate additional coverage for the John Deere Tractor. The Huppert’s who are remodeling a house in town across from Spindler’s donated some river rock to the Village. Chris and Roger took the rock and put around the Bay City signs coming into town. They also noticed that some of the railroad ties were getting rotten and needed to be replaced. So this will be a spring project that we will need to plan on completing. Christmas lights will be put up tomorrow as the Flags will be taken down from Veterans day.
