CENTERBURG — A new member, Saundra Dove, was appointed to join the Centerburg Village Council after being interviewed Monday evening for the position. She will be sworn in at the council’s September meeting to replace Aimee Humphrey, who has moved outside the village limits. Dove will serve out Humphrey’s term, which extends through calendar year 2013. Council also named Matt Douglas to replace Dave Humphrey on the Planning and Zoning Committee.
Myla Hostetler was recognized by council for her service to the U.S. Postal Service and to Centerburg. She retired at the end of July after a 32-year postal career, which included the past seven years as the village’s postmaster. Other council business ran the gamut from civic events to street paving and from health insurance to water pumps.
Council granted permits to several upcoming events, most notably the parade that will highlight the annual Oldtime Farming Festival. The parade will begin at 10 a.m. on Saturday morning, Sept. 15, and follow Main Street to Memorial Park. The theme of this year’s festival is “Agriculture, the Heart of it All.” Also approved was a community block party that will be organized by Centerburg United Methodist Church on Oct. 7. Pastor Vicky Kelley said that the party will include games, food and music, and will run from 3-7 p.m. on South Clayton Street.
