A loan payment for the Water Sewer Fund for $160,000 was accidentally made twice, according to Village Treasurer Joe Shopet. He says he is still waiting to hear back from the bank on when the village will receive the refund for the extra payment, which is the sole largest payment in the budget. Also at the meeting one liquor license was revoked due to the closing of Grindhouse and one new Class E liquor license was passed for The Laux Brick House across the street from village hall.
