Council members discussed the proposed concession stand on the home side of the village park’s football field, a possible sidewalk project on Richards Street and more space for the police department.

Mayor Bob Dile reported he and village administrator Robert Shipley met with Danville Superintendent Dan Harper about the concession stand. They did a site survey, discussed different ideas and talked about sharing the expense. Dile said they would talk with the Community Foundation of Mount Vernon & Knox County about help with the finances.

Councilman Darrin Durbin asked about a possible sidewalk project on Richards Street after watching students walk down the street recently. Council discussed which side of the street the sidewalk would be placed and how far up Richards it would go. Shipley will get a quote and report back to council, where they will discuss whether to continue with the project and how far it will reach.

Councilman Joe Mazzari asked about getting a larger room for the police department. He said the current room is too small and makes it difficult on the police department when it comes to everyday activities. A couple of different options were discussed and Dile said that 2013 might be a good time for the village to take a closer look at the building and facilities, especially for the police department’s needs.
