Also, at the meeting, called to order by Mayor Amanda Guyton, the board approved the February minutes, treasurer s report and invoices.

Advanced Plumbing jetted the drain at the east end of town. There is a blockage further down and we will have to have it jetted from the other end of the pipe.

Jimmy Rogers is going to start handing out situations. He has a copy of all the ordinances. There has been some concern about burning in the village. Our ordinance states there is to be no burning of garbage in the village.

Public Relations: Nanci Stewart is going to meet with the legion to see about painting the inside of the community building. We might be able to get a group from the high school to paint it.

Marilyn Simmons and Amanda Guyton read the meter and got an identification number, and they have been entered in the computer. There are still a few more to read. They will have another training tomorrow with Jerry Black.

They are going to redo the handicap parking space and will get a stencil and the proper paint and have it redone. Signs for the Horse and Buggy Museum will be installed by the DOT.

If anyone would like to contribute they may contact the Steretts.
