Sally MacPhail, Sentinel Jurgen Pape
Jurgen Pape appeared at the meeting, loaded down with not but three plastic one, bags, each containing the weekly advertisement
sheets from area businesses (normally hung on resident mail box posts)H.e said by thinking globally and acting locally, everyone can stop the unnecessary waste of valuable resources and the contribution to litter and waste problems. He had made a request that no material be left at his residence, and for a while it stopped, but now he's getting not one, but three bags each delivery cycle! He asked if the Village's Law Director could send wa helentter to the company responsible for these deliveries to stop formally requested to do so by residents.

and many people in town avoid walking in the evenings because
they can't see.
Ms. Fellabaum asked if the subject might be on some future
agenda for discussion. So far, GBPA has raised $600 towards the
light fixtures, and feel they could raise the money needed, but
not without Village Council's blessings. They figure that each
light fixture would cost approximately $2500.
During a lengthy discussion additional costs such as
installation, tearing up sidewalks, underground cabling, etc.,
were brought up. Ms. Fellabaum was told that Village Council was
with the GBPA in principle on the antique lighting fixtures, and
suggested that they come up with some kind of plan or study to
outline the total scope of the proposal.
