For their final meeting of November, the Lakeview Town Council had one major business item to approve – bids for two separate parts of new construction on the town’s swimming pool.
The Council met at 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 26 at Town Hall, with no members of the public present for the public comment segment of the meeting.
Thus, the meeting quickly proceeded on to business, with members commenting on parts of the agenda. These included a letter from Charter, the local cable TV provider, announcing a price increase for their services.
Mayor Mike Patrick gave an update on the status of wreaths placed around downtown Lakeview.“All the wreaths have been installed by the CenturyLink crews,” said the mayor. Patrick also acknowledged donations to the Save Our Pool fund from the Lakeview High School class of ’73 and a few locals.
Sandra Wenzel then offered what she had done as a member of the Council since the last meeting. She attended the Rural Health Day celebration on Nov. 21 and had been reviewing applications for the vacant town police position.
The next member of the Council, Sharon Faulkner, shared that she had been working with the United Prevention/Intervention Coalition, as well as the Lake County Chamber of Commerce. She has been helping the Chamber with details of their planned gala in January, and ironing out rules for nominating local Junior and Senior First Citizens.
Mike Warren then just wanted to comment that he thought the wreaths looked fantastic, to which the Mayor added that they would look even better once they were lit.
