7:31:17 PM Limberg Commented that he wanted to thank Greg Collins for his eight years of service with the Volunteer Fire Department. He said Collins did a good job.
7:31:32 PM Bell Commented on problems with the soccer goals. He said they need to come up with a solution to where they cannot be moved and damaged. He said they have talked about putting concrete four or five feet down with the posts in it, and maybe having one or two positions instead of just one. However, this will create a problem at grass cutting time.
7:32:15 PM Kostyshock Commented that it seems like everyone out there wants to position the goals to their liking.
7:32:31 PM Bell Said that is okay, but they want to move them and they yank them out of the ground, and in the process damage the goals.
7:33:10 PM Gulledge Commented that three of the four goals are damaged. He said he thinks they want to scrimmage and they pull the goals up to move them, and instead of four individual goals, they have two games. He said something is going to have to be done. One of the goals is really damaged.
7:33:23 PM Bell Commented they have to straighten that one. He said the other option is to take the goals out, and have no goals on that side of the park. He really doesn't want to do this.
7:34:42 PM Gulledge Said he has talked with Presson about this and he recommends putting five of the concrete things on each goal, and they won't move them. He will tighten the chain so there is no room to move it up or down. Also, the people living around park are going to start watching a lot closer on what goes on. He said if someone is caught damaging the goals, they will be prosecuted.
7:36:07 PM Bell Commented he knows they went out and checked storm drains on Oakridge. He asked Kostyshock if he knew what the results were, if there was any blockage.
7:36:12 PM Kostyshock Replied, he didn't know.
7:36:15 PM Gulledge Commented that they did go out, but he doesn't know what they found. He will ask Presson.
7:36:29 PM Callahan Said he received a call from a representative of Mother of Perpetual Help Church, and they were very thankful that the Village put the message on the sign about their picnic last Saturday. They did very well.
7:37:06 PM Gulledge Discussed the Maryville KC request. He said he talked with Mr. Dressel and tried to explain that they normally allow them to have their Tootsie Roll Drive, but with all the construction going on, they may not be allowed to do it this year. He said he is afraid someone may get hurt.
7:38:12 PM Wigginton Commented that they need to check the signed agreements with the State. There may have been restrictions to this type of thing due to expansion. He remembers that the Village did agree to prohibit parking along 159 during and after the construction. He suggested the Board look carefully at the agreements to see whether or not they agreed to restrict allowing charitable events to be held on 159.
7:39:01 PM Gulledge Said he is okay with this, but asked the trustees what they wanted to do if there is nothing in the agreements to prevent it. He said his recommendation is not to allow any solicitation on 159 this year. The ordinance allows three, but because of the safety factor, he doesn't want to do any. The trustees all agreed that due to the safety factor, not to allow it this year.
7:42:45 PM Gulledge Said he gave each trustee a copy of the Gazette, and if they have any questions or comments, let him, Schmidt or Jolene know by Noon tomorrow because it is going to the printer.
