Fayette village council members heard the first reading of a pair of ordinances at the Oct. 19 meeting.
Negotiations will continue regarding a contract for use of the village water tower by Bright.Net internet provider. Bright.Net is seeking permission to place four antennae on the tower to provide wireless internet service in the village.
The village would receive free internet service at the village office, the water treatment plant and the project engineer’s office.
The village is also seeking a rental fee for use of the tower, although Bright.Net is not receptive to the idea, said village solicitor Thomas Thompson.
The final agreement will specify a length of time for the contract and whether or not a rental fee will be included.
Thompson also suggested a few changes to the village income tax ordinance that was written in the 1970s.
SIDEWALKS—Letters were to be sent last week to seek bids from contractors to handle sidewalk repair or installation. The winning bidder will repair the walks that still need work along Main and Fayette streets.
Repair notices were sent to property owners earlier this year and the majority have addressed the problems.
LEAVES—Leaf pick-up is scheduled Nov. 1 through Nov. 19. The goal is to have leaves removed along every street in the village at least twice during that period.
Leaves may still be taken by residents to the old village barn off Eagle Street for composting.
