We must reject the
idea that every time a
law’s broken, society
is guilty rather
than the lawbreaker.
It is time to restore
the American precept
that each individual
is accountable
for his actions.

Ronald Reagan

May 2008 meeting: We had quite a turnout this month from residents -17! . It was great to see familiar faces; and a few not so familiar. I hope you will continue to take an interest in Village government and voice your opinion.

A reminder to all interested residents: there will be a public hearing on Monday, June 9 at 6:30 P.M. regarding the zoning ordinance. Copies of the two proposed changes are available at the Village Hall, Terry Lumber, Post Office, Bronson School and Library.

Council and the Township Trustees met and approved the annual Resolution to collect a full mill from the inside millage for the Union Cemetery Association. This is for the maintenance and upkeep of the two cemeteries, among other things.

The village had an inquiry for the Players Barn from a chicken farmer; this is not an approved use for the Barn. Mr. Hunker stated it would take a minimum of two years for plans and funding to improve the structure. There will be more discussion next month.

The Council has also passed the Parades and Assemblages Ordinance. They first asked the Township Trustees for their input on several items to avoid conflict. There is also provision for 60 day notice to the Police Department and requirement for the Clerk to notify the township as well as E.M.S. of any organized parades or races.

Don’t forget to check at the Village Hall, Terry Lumber, Bronson School (or the Quarry), Post Office and Library for meeting notices.
