Motion Hoag second Farnum to adopt the 2009-10 Budget and Truth in Taxation figures as follows:
                                    General Fund                          $ 241,092
                                    Major Street Fund                         49,100
                                    Local Street Fund                       116,700

Village Attorney Gary Howell issued an attorney opinion on how the council could proceed with removing illegal storm sewer connections from the sanitary sewer system. With owner consent the village may inspect properties for compliance but without owner consent an administrative search warrant would have to be issued by a judge to gain access to determine compliance. It was also the village attorney’s position that abandoning the storm water drainage system would not release the Village from liability. The DPW committee will meet to gather additional information on how to proceed.
