ELMWOOD—Plans for a park shelter were presented to the Elmwood Village Board early last week.
Marty Reinier distributed drawings of the proposed Veteran's Park shelter. The shelter would consist of a concrete slab, a finished ceiling and proximity to an electrical outlet. Reinier reported two picnics were already planned for the shelter and the 20-by-36-foot area would be good for library story hour, and a fire pit would be used for flag disposal.
The board approved the planned design.
In other business:
Bob Rupakis, owner of the Long Branch Bar, appeared before the board with a response to a letter from the village regarding fencing. According to Village Clerk Amy Wayne, a complaint was made about a weekly event taking place in the lot next to the bar. Rupakis noted the ordinance reads “fencing may be required” and not “shall be required.”
When it was suggested he put up orange snow fencing, he replied plans to convert the lot into an outdoor eating area will be presented to the board for an ordinance regarding six-foot fences. The board plans to address the issue next month.
Beer and picnic Licenses were approved for the Community Club and UFO Days, July 27 and 28. A car show will take place at Butternut Park. Temporary operator licenses were also approved.
