The appointment of a new trustee, an update report on the water meter project, and the snow plowing of streets in a subdiuvision topped the agenda last night for village officials in Creston.
Terry Daugherty was appointed as the new trustee for the board. He replaces Steve Bohling who resigned last August. Daughtery's term comes to an end in the spring of 2013 after the Consolidated Election.
Phase II of the water meter project has started. Meters have been installed in 17 of the 29 homes in the village. Board President Tom Byro said that they need to start reading the water meters in the future to see how they work.
The billing process for Creston will not change until all of the homes have water meters.
The board approved new package sale hours for alcohol at Casey's General Store who is now open 24 hours, 7 days a week. Carry-out sales can take place between 5:30am and 2am Monday through Saturday and from 10am until 11pm on Sunday.
A dispute has begun between the village and the developer of the Creston Commons subdivision on who will plow the streets this winter. The developer believes its the village's responsibility. Village officials say they have not accepted this subdivision at the present time. Byro said that residents who live in the subdivision will have plowed streets this winter.
There are around 15 homes in the subdivision. If the village does the plowing this winter, they would then send a bill for their work to the developer.
Fire hydrants will be flushed on October 15th in Creston. Petitions are also available at the village hall building for the April 9th Considated Election.
