 In other business, Wilhelm reported the Foundation will contribute $2000 towards a metal sign or “letters” for the Community Center. Crownover reported that he would continue trying to reach Wellsandt’s about their 2nd building. (They were reached and the building is on skids, therefore a zoning permit is not required.) Santa will be at the Duncan Building on 12-22, form 10 a.m. until Noon. Clerk reported that NC Utilities will not allow an outlet to be installed on the pole north of TR Unadilla Mart. In regards to the light in Tracy Circle: “the decorative light in Tracy Circle is included in the street lights and we (NC Utilities) re-bulb, re-fuse, and change the photo cell, but do not own the pole.” Clerk was instructed to relay to Tom Rodaway that the Village will allow him to install an outlet if he uses an electrician approved by the Village and if he pays for it. Wassenberg returned her keys and they were given to Baker. Crownover stated the Clerk needed to get extra keys for the shop and the new shelter so everyone on the Board would have them.

The meeting adjourned at 9:30 p.m.
