Exeter Village board met on August 5, 2019 with board member Kathy Erdkamp absent.
After approving the minutes and invoices and the board invited Fillmore County Zoning administrator Jennifer Slezak to talk about a lot split for property owned by Ed Mark. The board approved the split.
Clerk Becky Erdkamp reported several complaints about dogs in town running at large. Chairman Alan Michl will talk to the marshal serving the village as Fillmore County Sheriff will not respond to a village ordinance issue.
Maintenance Supervisor John Mueller reported that the striping bid was $564.80. The board planned to accept this bid. Mueller reported he is waiting on an insurance certificate from the concrete contractor for the fire hall.
Mueller asked about renting the excavator for his personal use and the board had no problem with him renting the equipment.
Erdkamp reported that sales tax for May was $10,023.42 and June Keno was $819.49. There was a brief discussion on the different reports that have been published on Keno funds and Erdkamp confirmed that all of the numbers matched just the fiscal year dates used in the publication were different from the fiscal year dates the village uses which made it look like there was a discrepancy.
Michl noted that Erdkamp has been helping in Fairmont as their clerk is not in the office. Erdkamp asked the board how they would like to compensate Mueller and she for the phone stipend. The board approved a monthly $50 phone stipend for Erdkamp and Mueller.
