Scott Flint attended the meeting on behalf of the Fire Department. Mr. Flint asked for the Village Board’s support as the fire department is planning a parade on June 14, 2014. He asked if the village would help in notifying the public as well as co-sponsoring the parade by obtaining the permit (which is required to close the state highway for a period of time to allow parade vehicles). Also, he asked if the village would ask for 5-7 volunteers to help with judging the parade to help keep costs down. Tentative plans are to have vendors again as well as village-wide garage sales and a band later in the evening. The fire department will again sponsor a money raffle and if available, the Life Net helicopter will put on a demonstration. No fireworks are planned at this time.
