Betty Keener-present, Rick Conrad-present, Mike Harwood-present, Rodney Mackey-present, Steve Stoffer-present, and Robert McCarthy arrived at 6:35pm.

VISITORS: Abby from the Daily Record and Leonard Kaplan.
ENGINEERS: Donna Kirkbride has approved our change for the upgrade on the sewer plant. We will be getting rid of the trickling filters completely.
PARK: Repairs at the park are going very slowly, the termite spraying is all done on the inside but not on the outside. When the weather gets warmer they will finish. Judy Gatti reported the Easter Egg Hunt from Saturday was well attended; she wanted to thank First National Bank for sponsoring the hunt. Dale Orr reported to move the tennis court to were the basketball court is would take just in concrete along $6,000.00. He feels it should be concrete because of the wetness of the area. Mike Harwood does not feel it needs to be concrete. This would free up space for the Johnny Appleseed to construct a band stand. Should have a park committee meeting to discuss this.
STREETS AND MAINTENANCE: Judy Gatti reported from the meeting, stating there are some roads that need repaired and need front tires for the dump truck. The tires are at cost of $600.00. Buss Court and Eyman are two of the streets that need repaired at a cost of $14,200.00. High St. we will be putting a band aid on it to make it last longer. The water department will be paying for all the repairs from the water breaks this past winter at a cost of $2,500.00. The street department does not have enough money to do this. We need to transfer $10,000.00 to their budget. Laurie will have an ordinance and a resolution ready for the next meeting on May 5. Dale Orr is to get another price on all of this week and bring it back to council.
WATER & SEWER: More discussion on the tap in fees.
UNFINISHED BUSINESS: Robert McCarthy reported he had been in contact with director of ATI about 59 Varnes Drive. ATI has been in working with Rob Kastner to come up with something. They should have a proposal soon for the Village. Judy Gatti reported she felt the village has done all we can for Keith Wellman of 59 Varnes Dr. Rodney Mackey reported he has been driving around during the recent storms and has noticed Mr. Wellman has done nothing himself to help the situation. Robert McCarthy reported the lot with the new hitching rail is looking great. Leonard Kaplan reported they have spent $7,500 so far.
NEW BUSINESS: Nothing.
