Items of interest from village staff and recent board meetings

  • Following a closed session at the conclusion of the Aug. 4 board meeting, Mayor Marilyn Johnson announced that she would “like to appoint Amy Goodman to be our next village clerk.” Upon the board’s approval, Goodman, of Decatur, would be hired for a three-month term at a rate of $11 per hour without benefits. Trustee Steve Hubbard seconded the motion made by Trustee Larry Reed, and the measure carried with all present voting Yea. Goodman, who has worked with the Macon County Planning and Zoning Commission and the County Board Office, started her new job on Aug. 5.
  • At the Aug. 4 board meeting, trustees approved an oil and chip seal project for four village streets, including Moon, Akers, Valerian and Sawyer Road. Three proposals were submitted, with Public Works Director Larry Coloni recommending the job be awarded to the lowest bidder, Dunn Company, at a cost of $9,586.40. Coloni said the project should have been done a year ago and that he was very comfortable with Dunn Company doing the work. The motion carried with all present voting Yea.
