Fisher OKs spending for help with flood ordinance

The Fisher Village Board Thursday authorized spending up to $1,000 for Donohue & Associates to contribute information to a flood control ordinance the village is working on. That ordinance will enable residents to sign up for flood insurance.

The board also agreed to pay Rice Tree Service $1,500 to remove two trees on village property and agreed to easements to allow Nicor to run lines in the new Phase V addition of Heritage Estates.

The board learned that 95 percent of Fisher residents did not opt out of the electrical aggregation plan with Integrys and that police officer Jonathon Priest was recognized by the Alliance Against Intoxicated Motorists for his work in enforcing drunk driving law.

Also, the board approved its audit and agreed with Trustee Deb Estes that the village should sponsor a cleanup day in October. She will have cost information about trash pickup at the September meeting.
