President Sprague informed Bryce what our needs are for security cameras. A meeting will be set up to 
walk through the areas to determine what will be needed to set up a network to a server and cost involved.
Dennis Rew reported that he has rescued the trophies from the former Birnamwood High School and
also received a donation of a trophy case and thought the Village would like possession of them. A location 
in the Matsche Center will be determined. 
Tom Leslie spoke in regard to the Auto Repair shop on Cty Rd N and stated that there is a large number of
vehicles on the property and looking like a junkyard. He is also concerned of fluids leaking from these 
vehicles into the ground and affecting the wells in the area. Suggested a fence would help some of the 
problem. A property survey is to be completed and a neighboring drain field may be affected also.

arisen seemingly since the Kingdom Hall was built. Research will need to be done with engineers to help
