MULBERRY GROVE VILLAGE BOARD MEETING
At the Mulberry Grove Village Board Meeting Monday night, a final copy of the Animal Control Ordinance was distributed to board members, but action on the ordinance was tabled until a special meeting, to allow members time to thoroughly read the document. Another business item, for the special meeting, will be the setting of fees for the newly adopted rental property code.
Eight bids were received and opened for mowing and trimming at the Mulberry Grove Cemetery. Bidders will be contacted concerning insurance and equipment. The board will decide on a bid at a later time.
The village is still exploring options for additional police protection. In June, officers participated in firearms qualifications, as mandated by the Illinois State Training Board.
Approximately ten village residents attended the meeting. One resident requested that live traps be set on his property, to trap pests. The animal control officer will be contacted about the possibility for setting traps. Another resident commended the board for all they are doing for the Village of Mulberry Grove.
The August board meeting date may be changed due to activities at the Bond County Fair.
