The Mulberry Grove village board held their monthly meeting Monday, Oct. 2, at 6 p.m., in the Village Hall conference room. Mayor Cherie Henson was absent from the meeting. Therefore, the board voted trustee Shawna Henrichsmeyer as pro-tem mayor. All board members were present for the meeting.
The biggest discussion was the maximum late fee for outstanding water bills. The policy stands that water will be shut off after payment is two months past due or $200. The board unanimously voted to include the right to put a lien on property once the bill reaches $500. Restoration of water will only occur once the bill is paid.
The board also unanimously approved the minutes from last month’s meeting, financial report, bills to be paid, and agreed the report from the Bond county tax computation was acceptable, giving Mayor Henson the approval to sign it.
Pro-tem Mayor Henrichsmeyer brought up the subject of Trunk or Treat, which will be hosted by Cub Scout Pack 59 at the Mulberry Grove Church of Christ on Saturday, Oct. 28 from 5 to 7 p.m. There is no age limit for this event.
Trick or Treat hours were also set for the village for Tuesday, Oct. 31, from 6 to 8 p.m., for ages 0-12 years of age.
