With good weather, oil-and-chipping projects on Tamaroa roads will be underway this week.
Work had been scheduled to begin earlier this month, but recent rain delayed the work. Among the jobs being completed is the repairing of Woodcock Road, a section of which was damaged during flooding last spring. The village expects to spend about $60,000 to repair the road.
Also reported at the village board's Aug. 9 meeting:
Trustee Lisa Haycraft announced that the tractor pull in June cleared $1,000.
Trustee Kerri Schoenbacher reminded the board that the Stacey's Field of Dreams Softball Tournament will be Saturday, Sept. 9 at the village ballpark. She also informed the board that the mats for the stage at the Community Center are in and ready to be put up. In addition, she inquired about the arrangement between the Tamaroa school and the village for use of the Community Center. The board decided that the agreement will remain the same as last year. Per that agreement, the school pays $1 a month in rent and provides insurance. She also announced that plastic bottle caps and lids are still being collected. The lids and bottle caps will be used to make benches.
There being no other business, the board voted to go into executive session to discuss union negotiations and personnel. The next meeting will be at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 13.
