2. OLD BUSINESS
3. NEW BUSINESS
A. EAST MAIN STREET PROJECT
Street Administrator Ballard updated Council on the East Main Street Project. He stated that the road is open to traffic and there are a few punch list items open and will be addressed. He stated that the DPW has marked the manhole covers for repair as there are dips at each manhole which need to be heated up and rolled out and the detour signs have yet to be picked up. He stated he has received no complaints. Treasurer Adair did inquire about the grass seed as it is dead in front of her home as the Landscapers did not water. Ballard stated that this is a perennial rye mixture used in most all MDOT projects. Sewer Commissioner Clark inquired as to an extension on the two year maintenance bond on the area where the road had to be dug up for water line repair. Ballard stated that he did not know and would ask the Engineer and let Council know.
B. TIETZ/PROSPECT BRIDGE PROJECT
Street Administrator Ballard informed Council that Doug Skylis, Rowe Incorporated, held a progress meeting on September 16 and Ballard read from the minutes (on file) that were attached for Council-s review. The anticipated completion is approximately three weeks.
Ballard informed Council that Robert Hoepfner of the Macomb County Department of Roads sent an e-mail asking if the Village would like the West Main Street Project to remain in the 2016 cycle or if it should be moved to the 2017 cycle. Ballard would like to push this project off until 2017, which Council agreed to. Ballard will contact Hoepfner to confirm.
C. OFFICE DESK DISPOSAL
The Clerk asked Council their wishes on disposing of an office desk the Village office no longer has use for. She explained that this is an old metal desk that has very little or no monetary value and it would cost more to advertise this desk for sale than the Village would receive for it. After a brief discussion it was decided that the desk would be advertised on the Village website and in the office window until the week of October 19, 2015, so if it is not sold, the Village could dispose of it during the Village's large trash pick-up week.
