Old Business

Larry Fry reported that REC Recycling is now Larry's Recycling and he will pick up once a month for $150 per month, but will pick up more often if needed.

Renee Sprock made a motion for Larry's Recycling owned and operated by Larry Fry to pick up the recycling for the Village at a cost of $150 per month with the stipulations that Mr. Fry show the village a valid license for Garbage/Recycling pickup for Henderson County and proof of insurance. Gloria Minard seconded the motion and all present approved the motion.

A facelift was discussed for the Community Building. It was discussed to paint the walls, scrub and wax the floor and possibly put up some type of dividers in the corner to be able to protect and conceal items such as extra tables, chairs and items that are owned by the American Legion.

Larry Fry volunteered to help with the cleaning and waxing of the floors if the village would pay for the supplies such as comet, mops, dish soap, pads for the scrubber and the rental of the scrubber and get more volunteers to help mop.

Larry informed the board that a floor scrubber could be rented for $33 per day.
