Roll Call taken and the following Village authorities announced present at the beginning of the November 17, 2009 recessed meeting: President Dale Murbarger, Trustee Nancy Byers, Trustee Gina Rinehart, Trustee Jean Ann Poehler, and Trustee Miller. Trustee Leonard and Trustee Fender absent.

Discussion of the rental or lease of the Rinehart building was the topic of the evening. President Murbarger explained the situation to Cara Rinehart concerning the Rinehart Building. He told her that we believe there is a structural problem and it would be impossible for her to be operating by January 1, 2010. Jeff Stanfield then reported on his, Rod Hoyt’s, Wes Dawkins and Danny Quinn’s findings. Jeff stated that the building is fixable, but they will have to mortar Smitty’s building as well. He said you could easily spend $20,000.00 to $30,000.00 on just the wall. There is also leakage on the east and west walls and that is what are deteriorating. He suggested that a structural engineer look at the building. Cara stated that she had Murphy Brothers go and look at the building as well, and they say the same thing. Motion for Mike Bridges, Village Engineer, to contact a structural engineer to set up a meeting made by Trustee Rinehart, seconded by Trustee Poehler.
