Coming soon: Street repairs in Wyanet

WYANET —  Street repairs will begin in September.

The Wyanet Village Board unanimously accepted the low bid from Pavement Maintenance for a cost of $28,000. The board voted to have the village employees complete some of the work, saving approximately $2,000.

Last month the board decided that Motor Fuel Tax money will be used to make repairs to several streets. Scheduled repairs include the alley south of Main Street from West Street to the east and Front Street from Maple Street to the east. Other repairs include Arch Street between Third Street and Fourth Street, Greencastle Drive from Fifth Street to the south, and Walnut Street from Main Street to Front Street.

In other business, neighbors around the park sent the board a letter requesting the board send the Community Club a letter. The residents are requesting the Community Club move the beer gardens to the ballbark. Some concerns cited by residents included loud noise, fireworks, lack of parking and indecent exposure.

The village has been working very hard and has completed the repairs to storm drains on Fourth Street and East Main Street. Also, sewer leaks have been repaired on North Street, Main Street, and Locust Street.

In other news:

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

• Village President Bruce Hand is still trying to fill the opening on the board.

• All village door locks have been replaced. Village employees and trustees are the only people allowed to have keys. If you need to enter one of the locations, please see Wyanet Village Clerk Shelley Teske or a village trustee.

• Water meters will be replaced as soon as new software is installed.

The next regular meeting of the Wyanet Village Board will be Sept. 9 at 7 p.m. in the Village Hall.
