RAYMOND — The Raymond Village Board held its final scheduled meeting of 2023 on Monday, Dec. 18 with Village President Dennis Held calling the meeting to order. Trustees Greg Bernhardt, Dan Hough, Kendall Snyder, and Bill Krager were in attendance, as well as Sally Broaddus, Rick Broaddus, Taylor Link, Tammy Redka, Jason McCallum, and Wayne Angle.
The board corrected meeting minutes from the December 4 meeting, which had incorrectly stated that Hough was absent from the meeting. Following the revision, Krager motioned to approve the minutes as amended which was seconded by Bernhardt. Krager and Bernhardt would do the same for the financial report for November. Both would pass nearly unanimously, except for Hough voting present.
Held announced that a work truck owned by the village is currently out of service and in the repair shop. While the truck was being serviced, he stated that they would have the brakes fixed. Held also said that the village is also awaiting the status of the backhoe. Two more loads of slag are being delivered to the village.
The board had a discussion relating to fiber Internet service from CTI Fiber.
The village is currently awaiting test results for samples that were sent in by the water and wastewater department.
An update was provided relating to Shoal Creek Golf Course. The pond work project is proceeding as planned. An overflow for the pond was installed earlier in the day prior to the meeting.
With no other business, the board would adjourn, with the board wishing everyone a merry Christmas and a happy new year in 2024.
