      Update on creation of park foundation.  Clerk Murdoch said she spoke with attorney Morten today and relayed the information to the Board, Murdoch said that Morten informed her that the town could create a park foundation; he would just need to make an Ordinance for it and the Board would need to pass it.  Murdoch said Morten would have one ready for February's meeting.

      There was an executive session planned, but Chairperson Lesac stated that it did not need to be an executive session; she just wanted to discuss and clarify what exactly the village is looking for as far as a dump truck. 

      Trustee Gillott entered the meeting at 7:18 PM

      Lesac continued saying her thought on the whole thing is what we really need is a truck to put the sander in, it would be much better and more versatile to buy a one ton four wheel drive vehicle that you can use every day, which is her thought. Trustee Newhouse agreed that that would be much more usable for us.  Chairperson Lesac went on to say she just wanted to get a general consensus from the board that this is what we want to do.  The Board agreed this was the direction to go.  Chairperson Lesac said she would pull something together and have it for the next meeting so maybe it can get approved and we can get it out.

      Motion by Johnson, seconded by Blessing to adjourn the meeting at 7:29 PM; ayes:  Johnson, Newhouse, Blessing, Gillott, Lesac, motion carried.
