BOYCEVILLE — The Boyceville Village Board breezed through its normal monthly meeting in about 15 minutes, Monday evening, July 11th, before going into closed session on an employment matter.
The board approved paying the monthly bills, and approved a Class B fermented malt beverage license for August 5-7 for the SL Softball Club for the Nathan Bauer Memorial Tournament. They also approved an operator’s license to Lisha Berg, and approved a one-year contract to Don Rose for the local building inspector’s position.
Village Trustee Bud Gilbertson reported to the board about the fuel supply at the Boyceville Air Port. He informed the board that the airport just received some 2,000 more gallons of fuel. He noted that a survey of fuel cost at area airports showed Boyceville’s fuel price was near the lowest at $3.99.9 per gallon. He suggested to the board that the price be lowered to $3.89.9, Gilbertson noted that with a lower price, the airport should be able to sell more fuel and that would keep their supply fresher. The board approved the lowering of the price.
In his report, Don Rose noted that a pump on lift station number three had to be repaired. In his police report, Chief Greg Lamkin noted that he had charged a high school student with battery for striking a younger student in the head. He also said he was clearing out the basement storage area and had eleven bikes that were going to be sold. He also said that he is trying to get all the old paper records in storage scanned onto a computer so that the records can be easily accessed.
Village President Gib Krueger requested that Lamkin and Rose work together to see that the tall weeds around the community are taken care of.
