Daily News

The Hutsonville Village Board started a new year Tuesday night with Mayor Tina Callaway and Trustees Ryan Terry and Monte Newlin taking their oaths of office.

After taking their oaths, Callaway presented the trustees with committee assignments, and suggested the water and sewer committee begin looking at the lift station project on South Pleasant Street.

Last month Shannon Woodard of Connor and Connor Engineering explain the current condition of the lift station and its construction. There station needed attention when both pumps quit working recently. It turned out to be just some objects jammed in the impellers, but it was noted that parts are no longer available for those pumps.

Woodard presented the board with two possible options with costs around $50,000. Callaway suggested the committee look at the project.

Along with the committee assignments Callaway reminded the board the annual appropriation ordinance and budget will be needed and the annual audit is also scheduled for May.

It was noted, with thanks, that the Farmers and Merchants Bank had donated a used four wheel drive pickup truck to the village. The truck is valued at around $10,000.

Police Chief Paul Maxwell has been talking with local residents about non-working vehicles, excess trash and other nuisance ordinance violations around the village. It is also that time of year to register those neighborhood vehicles and golf carts. Cost is $60 and can be paid at the bank.

The next scheduled meeting will be Tuesday, June 13.
