Raymond Board Discusses Proper Lawn Maintenance


Raymond Village Board met at 7 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 2, for a regularly scheduled meeting.

In Streets and Alleys, Trustee Poggenpohl reported two places in Raymond that are having issues with junk accumulation and grass/weeds not being maintained. The board directed letters to be issued to the property owners. Trustee Poggenpohl also mentioned that weeds needed to be sprayed at the Greenwalt building.

In Water and Sewer, Trustee Hough stated that it appears as if muskrats have tunneled through the dam at the southwest corner of the Gun Club. The board discussed the issue at length. In additional news, Trustee Hough reported that Scott Hunt will attend the next meeting to give an update on well #7.

In Police, Officer Grove provided her report for the month of August. The report included warnings against blowing grass clippings onto public highways and village streets. Residents are advised to keep grass clippings off public highways and village streets for everyone's safety. Officer Grove also provided the board with two plans on the purchase of a body camera, which can be funded in part though grants.

In Golf, Trustee Krager stated that the new grass is coming in well. Superintendent Eilerman reported that one of the older mowers may need a new heat exchanger and that he will look into cost.

The board then discussed alternate burn sites.

The meeting was adjourned at 8 p.m.
