Ronnie Gittings reported they had all the supplies needed for Laverdiere to begin work on the water line on North Street. Residents had been notified of street closings and parking for a couple of days.

He also reported that the village has been tested for lead in the water and there was none found.

The police report for August included: 53 hours worked; 296 miles on squad car; 5 service calls; and 34 business checks.

It was noted there is still some destruction going on at the village park.
