The Enfield Village Board met on Tuesday night for their August meeting and paid another $25,000 from the backhoe fund to Diamond Equipment in Mt. Vernon for the new backhoe. There are three more yearly payments to be made.
The Board turned down a request from Heather Smith for help to tear down her old home because a spare garage attached to the home would be too much for the Village to handle with their equipment.
Letters to clean up property will be sent to Nathan Campbell at 375 County Road 1925 North and David Newman at 302 East North Street. They will have 30 days to comply.
The Board agreed to donate $200 to Mule Days and $200 to renew their subscription to the Villager’s Voice. They also authorized paying $100 for four commemorative cups that will be awarded at Mule Days with “Mule Days” engraved on them. Also approved was a resolution to close off Route 45 for the Mule Days parade from 1:30 to 3:30.
The State recently made an insurance safety inspection and recommended that the Village make repairs to the roof on the pump house next to the water tower and replace some of the electrical boxes.
The Board went into executive session to discuss the Jennifer Deaton property situation and other matters with no action to be taken.
