Town council approves budget, new windows

Friday, September 14, 2007

The Knightsville Community Center should have new windows before old man winter arrives.

After hearing a presentation and estimate proposal from Clear View Windows, the Town Council of Knightsville approved the project and set aside $4,500 to replace all the windows in the building with more economical double-pane windows.

"We've been wanting to do this for a long time," President Mike Kester said about many recent renovations to the building. "I'm happy to see the windows be finished."

The board also approved the 2008 budget, estimated at $208,600, which will be presented to the state for final approval.

The board also signed the contract with American Legal Publications to begin the codification process.

The process will help the town update their present codes, which may be inconsistent, redundant, and obsolete. This will not change the meaning or legal effect of the city's codes being revised and restated, only remove ambiguities, contradictions, and other imperfections that may have crept into the codes over the years.

The board also announced plans to help area homeowners with some housekeeping of their own.

Knightsville homeowners can clear out their garages today of all those pesky unwanted large items they can't get rid of during a normal trash pickup during the Town Clean Up Day.

"We are hoping that people will take advantage of this to clean up their yards," President Mike Kester said.

Only Knightsville residents will be able to participate in the heavy trash day at Wallace Brothers Inc., 9245 North Crawford St.

Residents can drop off large amounts of trash and heavy appliances between 8 a.m. -- noon, but will not be able to drop off old tires, car batteries, oil, paint or concrete, according to Clerk/Treasurer Charlotte Reyher.

The board's next scheduled monthly meeting is Oct. 4 at the Knightsville Community Center.
