AUDIENCE RECOGNITION

  • Diane Foster (A-F Superintendent) spoke about the elementary students and teachers being named a Reward School by the Michigan Department of Education.  Ms. Foster also reported that starting the 2017-18 school year will begin as a Balanced Academic School Calendar (August 15, 2017 – July 26, 2018).  A-F Schools offers many incentives for families to move into the school district, and for students who attend school.  Starting this academic school year, Ms. Foster requested that the bus stop be moved to the gravel area with appropriate signage for loading/unloading children.

 

  • Fern Young has requested that the village purchase and display 12 more flags along Main Street.  It was discussed that the park looks nice, and the current lawn mowing service is doing a great job. 

 

  • Ed Nicholson, previous lawn service, raised some concerns he had as to how we measured for mowing the lawn.  Mr. Nicholson stood up, spoke very loudly, began arguing with council members and became disorderly.  Nicholson was asked to leave the meeting or the police will be called. 

 

Tom Wassa suspended the meeting until Mr. Nicholson left the building.

 

The meeting was brought back in session.
