Larry Hewitt, 883 GM Road, expressed concerns with Coratti’s using the public right-of-way for outdoor seating, specially mentioning the fence and planter along the parking spaces. Mr. Shufflebarger stated LCC does require barriers, however he would check into this matter and get back with Mr. Hewitt.
Mr. Shufflebarger stated the Village was one of three communities that was awarded the CDBG Stimulus money. Phase II of the sanitary sewer relining project was submitted and $173,000 was awarded. The Village must have bids out by October, and the project ready for next year. He was looking into whether Phase III could be done the same time as Phase II. A lease purchase agreement could be considered.
