Consider Liquor License Review Committee’s Recommendation for 449 N. Main
CM-08-134-10 Heer moved, Glagola seconded, to accept the Liquor License Review Committee’s recommendation of approval for 449 N. Main, for recordkeeping purposes only. Motion CARRIED.
Mr. Shufflebarger stated the license will remain attached to this property in escrow until Mr. Borlace has a leaser/operator for the property. The leaser will then be required to apply for the license as the operator of the facility. There is a five-year life expectancy of the license. Dave and Karen Borlace, property owners of 449 N. Main, were in attendance.
Accept Crack Sealing Bid
CM-08-135-10 Heer moved, Frankford seconded, to accept the bid of $1.10 per lb from Wenn Seal Coating & Seal Striping Inc. to purchase and install overband crack sealing on our local and major streets. Motion CARRIED.
Mr. Shufflebarger stated a majority of the work is done on major streets, on an as-needed basis. Local roads are done with in-house equipment when possible. There is a budgeted amount for this work.
Approve Environmental Consulting Service Fees from BCI
CM-08-136-10 Kovach moved, Aubry seconded, approve agreement with BCI for environmental monitoring of Kroger gas pumping station installation and on-going monitoring.
This environmental monitoring is specific to this site because of its location near the Wellhead protection area. The Village was able to require monitoring through the special conditional use approval.
Mr. Shufflebarger stated there will be monitoring done as critical elements are being completed.
Section 10.6, Right-of-Entry, referred to additional fees being charged if damages were incurred. Jennifer Elowsky will reword this section and bring back to Council.
It was questioned whether seven years was adequate for record retention. The records will be the property of BCI.
Kovach and Aubry agreed to amend motion adding “approve agreement conditional on changes being made to Section 10.6.”
CM-08-136-10 Kovach moved, Aubry seconded, approve agreement with BCI for environmental monitoring of Kroger gas pumping station installation and on-going monitoring, contingent on clarifications being made to Section 10.6 by the Village Attorney. Motion CARRIED.
