HOWARDS GROVE.The Village Board approved two recommendations for Memorial Park projects at its May meeting.

Two inside counter tables were approved at a quote of $1,040 for the baseball diamond concession stand project. No other quotes were needed because the bid was under $2,000.

A change order bid was awarded to A. Chappa Construction not to exceed the amount of $7,243 for additional sidewalk and blacktop work for the park bathrooms.

The 2018/2019 contracts with Millersville Athletic Association and Howards Grove Athletic Club were tabled for further discussion of additional projects.

A request from Millersville Recreation Association to fund the Riverside Park diamond resurfacing bid and drainage at a cost of $20,000 to be paid for by the village was rejected, with a suggestion to resubmit the request to be considered for the 2019 budget.

The extra-territorial review of a certified survey map to split five acres from the original 18.66 acres of property owned by James and Rhonda Birschbach of W1730 Rowe Rd. was approved. This would separate the home from the farm and barns.

A motion was approved to allow Cedar Creek Surveying on the behalf of David Wehrmann of 1805 Birdland Rd. to move the boundary line of his property 53 feet to the north and 206 feet in width. The increase would allow for the required footage to build an attached garage to the existing home.

Payment to Dorner Inc. for sanitary sewer repairs on College Avenue for the amount of $63,581.31 was approved.

Payment to A. Chappa Construction for the Memorial Park concession stand/bathroom project in the amount of $63,581.31 was approved.

The work in progress was reviewed. Village President James Scheiber and Public Works Director Ryan Welsing met with Scott Schramm on the pending FEMA mapping plans.

Scheiber said that progress was made and that he was satisfied with the items that Schramm has submitted.

Traffic issues were discussed. The school wants a cross walk sign put up near the elementary school.

TIF District 2 is still waiting for the owner to follow up on his request to get his payment lowered.

Trustees are looking at ways to enforce maintenance ordinances that aren’t being followed throughout parts of the village.

Jo Ann Lesser was appointed clerk/treasurer for a two-year term ending April 20, 2020.

Lesser reported that Gov. Scott Walker proclaimed the week of April 15-21 Municipal Treasurer’s week and that the week of May 6-12 was recognized as Municipal Clerk’s week.

Also a letter of appreciation was received from Karl and Barb Kaeppler for work completed on the Fischer Creek Trail.
