Permission to speak was granted to Christina and Jay Young.

They have been told that the street address that they have been using does not exist. Some companies and businesses do not ship to post office boxes, leaving them with undelivered mail. The council referred them to village solicitor, Bob Young, to understand the solution to their problem.

Old Business

Louth talked to the State about fixing the embankment problem on State Route 116, north of town. He was told the machines to work on this problem would be available around the end of this month.

Mayor Eutsler noted that the street lights at the ball park and the corner of Bebb and Main Street are inconsistent. A call to AEP will be made if the problems continue.

Lare mentioned contacting Bruns about cleaning the catch basins. Bruns will be available when the ground has had time to drain after the recent heavy rain.

New Business

It was noted that Jay Young and Vince Clement are interested in the village mowing position the next time it becomes available.

Mayor Eutsler commented that three youth are available for labor around the village.
