Wild Rose Board hears requests from citizens and business owners

The Wild Rose Village Board heard a number of requests from citizens as well as business owners during their regular meeting held on Aug. 2.

The first request was in the form of an anonymous donation of $3,000 to further develop the landscape on the grounds of the Patterson Memorial Library and Wild Rose Community Center.

Ideas for trees and plants was presented to the board, but those who came up with this project are seeking help from someone who knows how to draw up plans and develop the landscape. Plans include a water timer, continued maintenance/plant replacement, a storybook garden and a park marker.

Village President Tim Ganzel commented it would be a good project and will have the matter placed on the agenda for the September meeting to be voted on by the board.

Jeannie Testin of Sluggers spoke to the board regarding a couple of road closure requests on Front Street. The usual request for a partial road closure is for a street dance held in conjunction with the Classic Car Show on Friday, Sept. 15. The event is closely monitored and the request was granted with the noise curfew being extended to midnight.
