Audience- John Hower from Rinehart-Walters-Danner Ins brought our new quote for insurance for 2020. After review, motion by Trustee Wintermute, seconded Trustee McInturff, all agreed to exclude the malicious act section and one trailer needed to be removed. John agreed to the changes and will send a new bill for the policy.


Zoning Report-Stan presented reports for the Oct permits. 2 permits were issued and many issues and calls about zoning were made during the month of Oct.

Trustee Wintermute stated we were on a waiting list with Energy Cooperative for when they sell any used bucket trucks.


Old Business- The trustees then discussed the cemetery fence that was removed from the cemetery on North St. We all agreed after checking the one section over that had been refurbished by Trustee Schwartzenberger and attached to wooden post that this was the look we needed and not any new costly fencing.

New Business- Motion by Trustee McInturff, seconded Trustee Schwartzenberger, all agreed to pay the bills and accept the minutes.
