Raymond Village Board met at 7 p.m. on Monday, June 15.
Raymond Village Hall has new hours. Village hall is now open on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 8 a.m. to noon and from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. The hall is now closed on Tuesday and Friday.
Raymond Community Fire Protection District donated their old 1982 Ford Pumper Truck to the village. The board voted in favor of accepting the donation. A decision was made to cancel the village’s fireworks display as the picnic has been cancelled.
In water and sewer, Scott Hunt addressed the board about the well house and the newly finished well. He recommended that the board set base bid A for $33,824 for the new well only, and to revisit the well house when he gets another bid for it. The board voted in favor of Hunt’s suggestion. Well number five has been cleaned and appears to be running great. It has been almost three years since well number six has been cleaned.
In streets and alleys, it was reported that the culverts at Johnson Lane need to be replaced.
They are being compressed and are going to be impassable soon. Dave Stieren has been consulted about handling the labor for the project. The board approved the culvert work up to $20,000. The Motor Fuel Tax has been submitted and it should be 30 to 35 days before the board hears anything. The board is taking bids for the driver’s side door of the truck.
In police, the board learned that the new police vest has been ordered.
In golf, the new air conditioner and furnace for the golf course pro shop came in. The village will receive a $200 rebate on the unit. Discussion then turned to the fairways and greens. The fairways are in great condition and all irrigation heads have been installed. The board brainstormed ways to help the greens stay green. They also talked about the ponds needing big rocks placed around parts of them, similar to the Gun Club.
The meeting adjourned at 8:30 p.m.
