Officials discuss maintaining road

Village officials must decide whether to maintain a road or surrender control of it.

Turnover expected on board

Next month’s caucus will be the beginning of some major turnover on the Pesotum village board.
At last week’s study session, board members discussed the caucus, which is scheduled to take place on Monday, Dec. 5.
Village President Cheryl Smitley said she is not seeking re-election and hopes someone will “step up” to lead the village.

Services retained for police station

The village board voted Tuesday to retain Chicago-based Ice Miller as the bond counsel and Bloomington-based law firm Jacob & Klein for legal services as plans move forward on a new police station.

Resident worried about public safety

Sidney resident Darren Frields came to the village board meeting Monday with concerns about public safety.
Frields said he often seeds motorists speeding, disregarding stop signs and engaging in dangerous behavior on golf carts, four-wheelers, go carts and utility vehicles.
“There is a problem,” Frields said.

At last Wednesday’s study session, Village President Robert McCleary brought up the idea, citing the decreasing amount in the sewer fund each year.

Added cleaning swapped for raising rent
