Mrs. Bonnie Brose, janitor, talked to Mr. Rosebrook about getting a motion light above the back door of the restroom at Perry Park. Mr. Rosebrook stated that he will take care of this. He will install one right above the door.
Mrs. Brose would also like to have some more toilet paper holders for the restroom before the July celebration. If she puts extra rolls in there, they either get stolen, or people wet them and throw pieces on the ceiling.
There will be a parade on July 10 and Chief Montgomery will be in charge of it.
Mr. Mark Wilson reported that there are some tree branches hanging over the walkway at the park that needs to be trimmed.

Ackley, yes, Rosebrook, yes and Baker, yes.

Mr. Rosebrook stated that Triple C Construction went and looked at the sidewalk in front of Bill Reeds property. They told Jeff that they need to replace a 3 x 3 section of the sidewalk. They can just cut that out and we can pour a new piece in that section.
Mr. Rosebrook stated that it has been too wet to go out behind Doug Wills to check out that tile.
Mr. Rosebrook got the lettering on the truck, and it looks real nice.
