            Mr. Noble went on to say that they are replacing a door, hopefully like the one at The Senior Citizen Building.

            Mayor Hall asked Mr. Noble if they are still accepting items.  She said that she has some antiques of her father’s that may be of interest.  Mr. Noble told her to bring them down and he would check them over.


Lynn McGinnis, Shiloh General Store

            Mrs. McGinnis said that they had a car show last October that went really well.  She said they had 28 cars and had them parked in the back lot behind the store.  This year, she wanted to have another one, this time in August and was wondering about parking as she’s expecting more cars. 

            Several options were discussed.  Mr. Bailey said that he had also been planning a car show as a fundraiser for the Village parks.  Mrs. McGinnis said she would be willing to do it together.  She said she was willing to work with the Village if she didn’t get pushed out.  Mayor Hall said that she should be the chairperson.  There will be a Park Committee meeting on Thursday, May 18, 2017 at 3:00 with Mrs. McGinnis to discuss details.

Standing Committee’s Meeting

            Mr. Bailey said The Utility Committee met with Mr. Wiser and Mayor Hall.  They reviewed and discussed the 8 firms that submitted Statements of Qualifications.  After reviewing these, they ranked them based on several factors.  After ranking, the committee decided to invite the top three:  CT Consultants, CTI, and Poggemeyer to the next council meeting to make a presentation.

            There will be a Park Committee meeting on May 18, 2017 at 3:00.  Mr. Bailey offered to come to the meeting with Mrs. Shepherd because neither Mrs. Boock nor Mr. Shepherd will be able to attend.

Council Member’s Miscellaneous Reports

            Mr. Stephens spoke about The Brick Pond.  He asked if anyone knew of anywhere to buy composite benches.  He said the cheapest he could find was $500 each.  He said that benches down there would be very nice for the families that like to go down to the park.  He also said that it would be nice to put rocks around the pond to keep the weeds down and just make it look nicer.

            Mrs. Mireles said she knows they make those benches in Amish Country but wasn’t sure of the prices.  She agreed those benches would be nice and would last longer than a traditional wooden bench.

            Mrs. Shepherd asked if anything was being done about residents that have junk cars sitting around.  Sherri told her that in Mr. Bassin’s absence, she and Mr. Wiser had sent out letters regarding junk, but not any that involved junk cars.  Sherri said she wasn’t sure on those ordinances and didn’t want to send out anything incorrect.



Mayor’s Report
