Enfield Village Board hears good budget report for FY 2017

The Enfield Village Board met Tuesday night for their October meeting.

Kent Armstrong of Botsch and Associates CPA presented the budget for fiscal year 2017 to the Board. Total revenues for the year were $983,785. He said the Village is in fairly good shape and is staying within its budget. They’re also able to cover their debt. Armstrong said the Board might want to look into raising utility rates.

The repair work on the roof of the Village Building has been completed.

The house at County Road 200 East and Route 45 that the Village will be tearing down is first being checked for asbestos.

In the police, utilities and park reports for September there were no major problems in any of the departments.

There are twelve properties in Enfield that need to be cleaned up. They will send out letters to the owners shortly.

There have been some complaints from residents about grain being spilled at the grain elevator causing a smell and of trains loudly blowing their whistles at about 3 a.m. they will look into both matters.

The Masonic Lodge Car Show will be this Saturday on Main Street, which will be closed off. Registration is from 8 a.m. to noon with breakfast and lunch being served at the fire department building. There will also be a 50/50 drawing. The Board approved the usual donation for the car show trophy.

There’s a craft fair also on Saturday at the Mule Day Building.
