We will complete the winter fire hydrant checks in September.
Ron Hartoin asked Chief Ober if there will be a shortage of firefighters in the near future and would passing a replacement levy versus a renewal levy assist in keeping the firefighters we have and hiring new people. Chief Ober stated that people don’t want to do public service work anymore. Our schools need to promote trade jobs. Mayor Sammons spoke about a volunteer fire department and possible travelling firemen, who would assist where needed. Chief Ober stated the 260 hours of training needed to become a volunteer fireman and the recording of hours worked and differences in pay for travelling firemen would not be feasible. He did report that they may decide to hold a recruit class with neighboring villages.
THREE RIVERS SCHOOL
Superintendent Hockenberry talked about TRS Strategic 5-Year Plan and the first forum will be held Thursday, September 6th at 6:00pm at Three Rivers Campus. The topic will be, what we want Three Rivers School to look like in five years and he urged local mayors and council members to attend. He stated that school start times have changed due to a 3 to 2 Board vote. Pre-K through fourth grade level will start school at 9:00am. The middle and high school, fifth through twelve grades, will start school at 8:08am. This give teachers common planning time for student achievement, student data and student interventions. When asked about the busing issue, Superintendent Hockenberry stated it costs $56,000 to run one bus for one year. No increase for bus service was incurred because of this start time change.
Finance - Mr. Moorman
Regarding changing our streetlights to LED, Dave Moorman had four styles of streetlight lamps in council hall for viewing by council members.
