Items of interest from Village staff and recent board meetings

  • On the advice of Village Engineer Chuck Hunsinger, speaking at the Aug. 19 board meeting, the board approved revocation of a final payment of $76,149.95 to a landscaping subcontractor involved with the Cox Street Phase IV Street Improvement Project. The payment was originally approved at the July 15 board meeting, but Hunsinger asked that it be voided. The contractor is working with the subcontractor to resolve the issue. Payment for landscaping will be withheld until the work is completed at the end of September.
  • A deputy for the Macon County Sheriff’s Department, speaking at the Sept. 3 board meeting, described recent law enforcement activity in the village as “amazingly peaceful” — he added that he hoped his comment didn’t jinx anything going forward. The deputy said patrols near the grade school have increased with the start of the new school year. Patrols, he said, continue at intersections known to be problem areas. Retail thefts and arrests are down recently at the mall, the deputy reported.
  • The village will be given three bike racks from the Macon County Health Department as part of a Built Environment Grant called We Choose Health that the health department recently received.
  • Public Works Director Larry Coloni worked with staff at Lowe’s to provide two tents and bottled water for the Farm Progress bus stop at Hickory Point Mall last month. The village supplied chairs, tables, coolers and ice.
