FORESTVILLE - Unlike many meetings of the Forestville Village Board, the one held Tuesday evening was uneventful. Its stated purpose was to deal with the water project in the village. After calling the meeting to order, Mayor Beth Bowker noted there would be no public comment at the special meeting.
Four resolutions were on the agenda - all were concerning payments for the water project. All were passed unanimously without discussion. All members of the board attended the meeting.
The first resolution approved engineers Clark, Patterson, Lee for professional services for Bennett State Road for the period ending Oct. 5 in the amount of $7,871.70.
