New Business: Lola Russell approached the board with a proposal to purchase the Legion from the Lebanon Ladies Auxiliary. Lola explained that they were disbanding and so they were going to give the town the first right to purchase the building for $1.00. Lola had a spread sheet that she presented the board with the cost of running the building and the revenue that it has brought in in the past. After a brief discussion, the board unanimously decided to accept the offer and purchase the legion. By a motion of Trudo/2nd by Tennant, the Town will purchase the Legion Hall for $1.00. Motion passed. Thank you, Auxiliary, for this opportunity.
Open discussion: Pat Lembke again brought up the proposal to add an addition on to the existing bar. She is looking for input from anyone in the municipality on their views good or bad, but some feedback would be extremely helpful considering the board is at an standstill on this option. To state your opinion or to give comments contact Pat Lembke – board trustee or come to the next monthly meeting. Thank you. We value your opinion.
With there being no further business to discuss, by a motion of Trudo/2nd by Lembke, meeting was adjourned at 9:10pm. Motion passed. Next monthly meeting will be held on August 5, 2019 at 8PM.
