ATKINSON – Trustees moved through a short agenda on Monday night as lights flickered numerous times during the board meeting.|
"We are lucky we got through our meeting, although some of it was in the dark, and we are also fortunate there were no damages from power surges," Mayor August Junior said.
Business items included discussion regarding the upcoming budget for fiscal year 2013-14. Some board members listed items ranging from replacing fire hydrants and buying a salt spreader for a village truck to resurfacing streets not done last year.
Trustees learned the Atkinson Landfill Co. owes the village $10,021 in back licensing fees that were to have been paid in August through December 2012.
Mayor Junior said the amount owed the village is because in August of last year the licensing fee rate increased, as agreed in the current contract, approved in 1993.
Board members agreed to bill the landfill for the amount.
