Blandinsville – Village trustees on Tuesday discussed whether to purchase a new water meter.
Water Superintendent Willy Carnes requested the village purchase a new meter because there is a water leakage problem at Crop Production Services. The cost to replace the 30-year old water meter is around $750.
Board President Marilyn Moore commended Street Superintendent Loren DeBold and his team on their “superb job” laying concrete sidewalks. For the past several months, the village has been pouring new concrete sidewalks as part of a 50-50 sidewalk program which offers a cost sharing option where the village will split the cost difference with the owner.
Police Chief Robert Phelps’s July activity report was delivered Tuesday by Trustee Monte Mason to the Village Board of Trustees.
Mason indicated there were four traffic stops, with one citation, one written warning and one verbal warning. He went onto say there were 13 calls for service, two citizen contacts, 27 ordinance violations, one foot patrol, four follow-up investigations, two assists with other agencies, one warrant service and 550 miles were put on the police cruiser.
Blandinsville board of Trustees recurring regular monthly meeting is on the first Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m.
