PRESIDENT AND BOARD OF TRUSTEES

Wednesday July 11th, 2012

SPECIAL BOARD MEETING OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES

PUBLIC HEARING


Minutes of the Special Board Meeting of the Acting President and Board of Trustees for the Village of Stanford, held at the Allin Township Community Building at 7:00pm.

•I.                   ROLL CALL:


Present:  5 - Acting President John Owen, Trustees Jim Bridgewater, Jeremiah Pitcher, Nydra Owen, and Homer Smith.

Absent: 0

Also present: Chef Gleason, Officer Kemp, Kevin Wonders, Ron Dubbledee, Bryan and Michelle Westerhouse.

•II.               PUBLIC DICUSSION OF STOP SIGNS:


Bryan Westerhouse likes the idea of the stop sign being placed on the corner of Boundary and Kathleen, instead of the intersection of Main and Kathleen being made into a three-way stop. Bryan believes the stop on the corner of Kathleen and Boundary would slow the traffic down on Kathleen.

Michelle Westerhouse is concerned about the three-way stop being placed at the intersections of Main and Kathleen because her home is so close to the street and intersection. Michelle is afraid that people will run the stop sign, loose control and hit her home.

Acting President John Owen suggested that a possible large rock or barricade could be used by the Westerhouse property.

Bryan Westerhouse believes that the placement of the stop signs will just make people use other streets in town, and they will still be speeding.

Officer Kemp suggested that the Police contact McLean County Sheriff's Department for use of the radar trailer. The radar trailer can collect data; time, date, and speeds.



•III.            NEW BUSINESS:


  • Acting President John Owen would like to table the stop sign issue until the July 19th regular meeting.

  • Acting President John Owen discussed with the Board the sub-division lots. Acting President John Owen stated that the lots have got to be re-appraised for listing.

Acting President John Owen moved, seconded by Trustee Bridgewater to allow Acting President John Owen to hire an appraiser to appraise the sub-division lots.


On roll call the vote was:


AYES: 5 - Acting President John Owen, Trustees Nydra Owen, Bridgewater, Pitcher and Smith.


NAYS: 0


ABSENT: 0


There being 5 affirmative votes, the motion carried.

                       

III:      MOTION TO ADJOURN @ 8:38PM:


There being no further business to discuss, Acting President John Owen moved, seconded by Trustee Bridgewater, to adjourn.

All in favor.  AYE.
