EDINBURG — The Village of Edinburg held a regular meeting on Monday, July 12, 2021 at 7:00 p.m. in the Village Hall.
After months of discussion and legal legwork, the Village has finally scheduled the meeting between the Village and property owners whose land will be affected by the easements for the raw water line project. For property owners who have been asked to give the Village easements for the project, they can attend the meeting on July 27 at 7:00 p.m. to talk to the Board members and the attorney Rocci Romano about their concerns.
The hope is that the meeting will allow the Board to settle any concerns and assuage fears about the project. Romano will be able to answer any legal concerns property owners might have, as well. He hopes to have the paperwork signed at the meeting to help the project move forward as briskly as possible, since the raw water line is badly needed.
The Board decided to approve the request from Ashley Francis to put in a 4- way stop sign at Lincoln and Foggit streets. The request will be approved at the next month’s meeting. The Board also decided to waive the sewer and water fees for Vicki Yonker’s mother. The fee will be waived for 6 months starting in August.
Water Superintendent Mike Lebshier told the Board at the meeting that the Pump Station was in need of repairs. The Board agreed to buy the parts, as long as Lebshier did not exceed a cost of $10,000 for the need- ed parts. Lebshier also informed the Board that the Motor Fuel Tax paperwork was finally ready to go and that he would hopefully have bids for oil and chip projects by the next meeting.
The Board also approved a bid from HD Excavating for tree removal and the clean up of a burned down house in the Village for $8,340, plus the landfill and dumping expenses. Since the house burned down, the Village has been scrambling to clean up the property and thus were happy to finally get the project started.
The lease purchase of the 2021 John Deere 60G Compact Excavator was tabled until a later meeting, due to the paperwork being delayed.
Also approved at the meeting:
– June ($40,196.27) and July ($46,263,73) bills
– $98 reimbursement for Mike Lebshier to attend IRWA Conference
– Pay annual NPDES fee of $2,500 and pass the cost on to customers one time in August for a cost of $7.50 to each customer
– Purchase of laser level for $1,265
– Pay half of IML Conference fees with Taylorville to pay the other half
The next meeting of the Village of Edinburg will be held on Monday, August 9 at 7:00 p.m. in the Village Hall.
