1. Silo Restoration and Illumination Budget Update
Staff requested direction from the Village Board on whether to move forward with the project based on the new GMP costs provided by R.C. Wegman, including moving forward with the bidding phase of the project. A photo was shown of the silo with different lighting elements.
Trustee Curtis did not feel that the village should move forward at this time due to the current economic uncertainty.
Mayor Berman said that the funds for this project have already been set aside and the project is something that is needed right now and will be very positive for the community.
Trustees Guethle, Martinez, Caroll, Lowery and Gaffino were in favor of moving forward and in favor of the lighting at the top of the silo.

Motion to adjourn made by Trustee Gaffino and seconded by Trustee Curtis. All in favor. Motion approved.
