Park, Facilities, and Beautification

Old Business:

Discussion on 2011 goals
-place the list in priority with time projection.
Discussion on 2011 Park budget and how expenses will be shown.
Money in the Park budget can only be for the Park versus beautification and facilities. Hence the line items moved from admin to the Park will show expenditures to admin with no money but will be balanced from the money located in the Park budget. This will leave the Park budget with money at the end of the year but has actually been spent in other categories. We need to look for a better solution.
-Condition of Crabapple Trees
-Garden Club
-Flag holder for Ralph Russell’s grave
Update on inventory of Village Hall interior tour.
-place the list in priority with time projection.
-Control cooling (the winter was too hot, now the air conditioning is too cool. Why has the service department not addressed this waste of energy?)
Update on cemetery and McFarland homestead

New Business:

Events in the Park
