President Sprague reported that at time of purchase of new pick up truck, plan was to trade in or sell old 
truck every three years or so and purchase new truck with municipal discount, therefore keeping a 
relatively new truck in service at low cost to us. Current 2017 truck has 33,000 miles on it and would be 
worth approximately $25,000.. A new truck with municipal discount would cost approximately $31,000. 
Is this the time to get a new truck?  Current truck was purchased with grant funds. 
Clerk reported we are still in need of candidates for Village Board. It would be a good idea to write 
up some guidelines as to what is expected of board members to earn the $1,200 per year salary. 
Meetings earn another $50.00 per meeting.
