Mr. Arlen Phillips requested that a name be given to the alley that his house is on so a mail box can be installed for mail delivery. Street Commissioner Orr advised that the alley is named Troxell Extension.  The Post Office requested the information, Mr. Phillips stated.   A street sign will be installed with the second round of sign installations.  Mr. Phillips would like the alley to be part of Maple Street.  The Mayor suggested that had he contacted her to be put on the Agenda, she would have asked him to attend a meeting when Solicitor Musselman is present, which would be the first of the month.  Commissioner Orr suggested that Mr. Phillips install a box on his property on the Maple Street side. Mr. Phillips stated that he is just “doing what the post office said to do”. The Mayor explained that the Phillips’ physical address is listed as Maple Street.  Village Administrator Busson will talk to the Post Office and advise Mr. Phillips and the Mayor of the outcome.  Mr. Phillips also requested that the alley be made a one-way street, and that trucks be prohibited.  Drivers are going into his yard and breaking-up his rocks.  The Mayor stated that this request will need to go to the Street Committee for review and recommendation made back to full Council.    A meeting was then scheduled for Monday, October 2, 2017, at 5:30pm.  The Mayor invited Mr. Phillips to the street committee meeting.

The Mayor advised that there is a leash-law in the Village that includes cats.  The home-owner will be given notice to bring the cats into the house or put them on a leash by the end of one week.  The Mayor stated that when the street committee drove through town to review streets, junk in yards was also noted.  Addresses of such should be given to the Village Administrator.  Vehicles parked in yards with/and without license plates, were discussed.
