The cost of reserving a park shelter house is more expensive in Fayette after a council decision last month.
A fee will now be charged every day of the week to reserve a shelter. Shelters may still be used at no cost, but by paying a fee a party can assure the shelter will be available for a function and the restrooms will be open.
The fee for the south shelter house is $35 and $25 for the Grove shelter.
In the past, a fee was charged only for Sundays.
BALL FIELD—Council member Tom Molitierno asked if dirt from sewer work could be used as fill at the Leonard Morr Field where the outfield drops down.
Parks director Scott Wagner said a goal of the park board calls for the outfield area to be graded and for a fence to be installed.
OFFICER—Fayette village administrator Amy Metz was elected executive committee secretary of the Fulton County Community Improvement Corporation.
LOAN—By paying off early the loan for the Fayette Street curbing project, the village is expected to save about $18,000.
POLICE—Items considered for the police department in 2011 include a video recorder for interviews, four new vests and six new radios. The equipment is related to federal requirements.
DECOY—Audience member Elwyn Bates suggested placing a dummy in an old police car and moving the location from time to time in order to slow down traffic on U.S. 20.
