In politics,
nothing happens
by accident.
If it happens,
you can bet
it was planned
that way.

October Peninsula Village Council Meeting Items of Note:

Amy Anderson, Boston Township Trustee, presented Council with the signed Police Contract for three additional years through January 1, 2011. This brings annual revenue of $172,234, with a 5% increase each year.

Financial considerations were discussed – money was appropriated for the repairs needed for the police vehicles, mandatory police officer training, telephone bills and brake repairs on the big dump truck. Council approved payment of the belated quarterly payroll and the payment of regular monthly bills.

Mayor Kaplan reported the FEMA flood map has been updated with no changes to the village flood zone.

Natalie Mitchell was welcomed as the new member of the Planning Commission. The Players Barn committee has not met yet, but when meetings are scheduled, it will be posted at least 24 hours prior in the village.

Mr. Robinson announced that although the truck will be repaired, the leaf machine, which is nine years old, needs repairs that we are unable to have done at this time. There will not be village leaf pickup done this year.

A reminder to residents who would like copies of minutes, please email me at and I’ll put your email on the list.

The Fence is at zinc this week and we will keep you updated on the progress. Hopefully it will be in place by Thanksgiving.

Last, but not least, the Zoning Ordinance amendment proposed earlier this year, which were heard by the public in September was passed by Council. If you have a current Zoning Ordinance, check with me to get the updated pages. If you’d like a new copy, they will be available at cost, approximately $20.
