Sgt. Raker reported there were 38 calls for the month of June.  Six cases were assigned and one has been closed.  Sgt. Raker reviewed some of the incidents during June.  There was a discussion about having incidents listed in the Western Hills Press.  Sgt. Raker stated the publication of these reports are at the discretion of the newspaper.  Marilyn Kramer will follow up with the Western Hills Press.  Dave Moorman will be posting a monthly, one-page report on the Village website recapping key incidents.


Mr. Dan Schoster, JMA, spoke about culvert pipe replacement, drainage and sidewalk replacement on U.S. 50 and St. Annes.  Mr. Schoster reviewed the possible SCIP Capital Improvement Program grant that may be available, the overall project and the need for it.      The cost is estimated at $210,000 plus $20,000 for engineering costs.  A SCIP grant would     cover half the cost.  An additional $75,000 would be needed for additional work along St. Annes.

Mr. Schoster also discussed a slide issue on Sunset.
