Behm/Schmidt m/s/c to approve bills as presented. Roll call vote – all yes. 
Liberty Bank is asking $25,000.00 for the store. Not worth it. We will wait and see what happens next.

Birchwood Park restocking complete. Trustee Schmidt is getting another estimate for parking lot and 
pathway from shelter to pond. 
President Sprague spoke with Village Attorney in regard to enforcement of ordinances and fee 
assessments. We need to get set up on the Court dockets for both counties and have our ordinances
written correctly so they are enforceable and list the amounts of fees to be assessed. Initial set up
would cost approximately $1,000-1,500.
Reports were received from the portable speed sign. A large percentage of traffic is in violation. 
The next step is to report to the County so streets can be monitored.
Committees were discussed and realigned with members assigned as listed on attachment. 
A letter was received from the Tavern League asking for a decrease in fees for liquor licenses due to
the lack of business from Covid-19. We will wait until the next meeting to see how regulations
