CONTINENTAL — Spring clean-up dates were set Tuesday at the Continental Village Council meeting.
Community garage sales are being held this weekend. The village clean-up days were set for May 28-29 to help residents dispose of any unwanted items from the sales, as well as for general clean-up. Dumpsters will be available at the corner of Rice and Sixth streets. Items not accepted are paint, tires, yard waste, tree limbs, batteries, and appliances
Another village task has been put on hold for now. Hydrant flushing has been postponed due to the already saturated ground.
It was noted that the dedication for a Habitat for Humanity home on Eighth Street will be held Sunday at 1 p.m. This project is a renovated home, rather than the traditional new build.
Council approved the third reading of the Nature Works grant application resolution. The village is applying for a $15,000 grant for more park improvements including new swing sets. The grant is 75-25, with the village responsible for 25 percent.
Village residents are again reminded to complete the community income surveys recently mailed out. A second mailing has been sent, and this will be followed by personal visits to households not responded. At least 300 of 500 households are needed, village officials are hoping for 100 percent response.
Water meter replacement is ongoing. There are 60 meters and 25 pits yet to be replaced.
