Oakwood to repair former police station

OAKWOOD — Village Trustees this week voted to repair the former police station, starting with the roof over the bay area. Trustees had been trying to decide whether to repair, demolish or rebuild the building at 108 S. Scott St.

"We could build rooms inside it," suggested Village Trustee Doit Roberts.

Trustees concluded that if they demolished the building, they may not have the money to replace it. Trustees also said they valued its historic significance.

In other business, the trustees:

— Approved a change in the water payment ordinance, changing the billing from 60 days to 30 days.

— Approved an amendment allowing three-wheeled golf carts to be driven as recreational vehicles in town.

— Approved an agreement with Markettech to design a village website. It will cost $1,700 to $1,800 to get the site started.

— Announced that election materials are available at Village Hall. Village president, village clerk, and two village trustee spots are up for re-election.

— Announced that village board meeting dates for 2013 will continue to be on the second Monday of the month at 6:30 p. m.
