Wyanet Village Board

WYANET — The Wyanet Village Board handled the following business at its meeting on Tuesday:

• Jim Etheridge and Jeramie Spears have been appointed to fill the vacant seats on the Wyanet Village Board.

• The village has been prepared for the festival this weekend. A street sweeper swept Main Street; many roads have been repaired; flags have been hung; park buildings were painted; and a new roof was installed on the restrooms.

• Village Police Chief Todd Marquez provided the board with his department’s monthly activity report.

• Marquez would also like to remind residents that cell phone usage in school zones is illegal.

• Approved a stop sign on North Street at Locust Street. Residents along North Street have noticed cars driving at excess speeds down that road.

• No parking signs will be placed on the south side of Fourth Street between Locust and Arch. New school pick up procedures will be in place at the beginning of the new school year.

• John Swarczewski was appointed to the Henry Thomas Museum Board.

• The board will be setting up general clean up for the month of October. Dates will be finalized at the August meeting.

• The board would like to encourage residents to take their unwanted electronics to Princeton Recycling Center on July 27 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Clerk Shelly Teske has a list of items that will be accepted. These types of items will not be picked up during general clean up.

• Approved a resolution to authorize the sale of village owned property to Paul Moon.

• Girl Scout Troup 4749 wrote a letter to the board. They’d like to clean up trash around the village, plant trees and flowers at the park and other public locations, and maybe begin a recycling program in Wyanet. Trustee Joe Law will meet with the Girl Scout leader to make arrangements.

The next meeting of the Wyanet Village Board will be at 7 p.m. Aug. 13 in the Village Hall.
