Fisher garage sale, cleanup this weekend
This weekend, Fisher will provide two 30 yard Dumpsters for residents to dispose of things they no longer want as they spring clean. Today and Saturday are also the days of the village-wide garage sales and Trustee Deb Estes said the village provides the service most years for post-garage sale cleanup.
New this year is an electronics recycling event that will be run Saturday from the old bus barn behind the community center. Recyclers will be required to prove residency because there will be a charge to take old television sets and computer monitors and the village will cover that cost for residents, Estes said.
Ron Ragle, water supervisor for the village, told the board that the 1967 Kaiser Jeep M-715 five-quarter ton truck has been sold. Ragle told the village board he received 37 phone calls the Friday morning last month a News-Gazette article reported that the village was selling the truck as well as seven very old water hydrants.
Ragle said the truck sold for $1,600. He is still trying to put his hands on the title. Also sold as surplus property were a 1986 Jacobsen HR-15 mower with deck; a boom sprayer with two 15-gallon tanks; a power pull-behind street broom and a Gandy hitch seed spreader.
Also, the board will proceed with advertising for bids to demolish the bus barn and the old community building. Because of uncertainty over the potential cost of asbestos removal, the bid sought to remove the bus barn will be the base bid and the other building, the alternate.
