Raymond board gets update on new truck, golf course revenue in May 21 meeting

RAYMOND (Heartland Newsfeed) — There was limited business up for discussion in the Raymond Village Board’s meeting on Monday, May 21, with updates on the incoming new truck for the streets and maintenance department and revenue from Shoal Creek Golf Course.

Revenue at SCGC is up, but it was noted by trustee Scott Pinkston that there have been concerns regarding large groups playing on the weekends, with the board discussing alternatives to rectify the concerns.

While there were no specific reports from the finance committee, it was noted that their new truck will arrive within two weeks’ time with paperwork to sign, but the village’s expense was not mentioned until delivery was made.

Lumber has arrived for repairs to fencing near an old cottonwood tree and has already been primed and painted. It is now ready for installation.

For all items ineligible for recycling, the village-wide cleanup days are coming up, beginning Monday, June 4 and will run through Thursday, June 7. For recyclable items, the recycling center is open Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. until 10:00 a.m.

Spraying for mosquito control will begin soon, as machine inspection and training are being finalized.

Some additional items of discussion included properties which haven’t been recently mowed and work involving ditches and sidewalks.

With no further business, the board adjourned at 7:33 p.m., set to reconvene on Monday, June 4.
