At the next board meeting we will set aside time to address all the issues at one time, please bring your attorney and your father. The Village also requires a developer deposit too.
John Lund: Stated on Jefferson no parking, only because of the hill and the activity by the park it's a safety issue.
Jamie Hagstrom: Stated she is disappointed about the no parking on Jefferson since she lives there for many years. Now when people visit her they will not be able to park on the certain side of the Street.
Chris Boden: is not in favor of the new parking ban since he lives right on the sharp curb of White Oak. Now when he has company they'll need to park further down the street to visit them.

Village President's Report Coon Creek-Carl Palmisano reported the vacant land where the new Village Hall will be, the ground has been mowed and the carnival people came to look at the land and said their rides can go there. This vacant land is much bigger than the park, will have ample room for everything. State Street will be closed at certain places: barricades, fences and workers will be guiding the cars to park plus helping the people walking. Safety is our first concern for everyone.
