Councilman Lonneville next stated that the $13,540 that was requested in resolution # 06132022 is to finish the interior of the town museum, Jennie’s House.  Councilman Cramer and Councilwoman Herman both asked if this would complete the inside and no additional funds would be needed to complete the interior work.  Councilman Lonneville stated he hopes this will be all that’s needed.

Councilman Lonneville gave an overview of the current Town of Marion project being worked on.

Library – The doors at the library hope to be done the week of June 20 – 24th.  This project has been delayed due to weather and illness of contractors.  Councilwoman Herman stated that the exterior trim that needs to be replaced is in the library and if someone could hang it, it would be much appreciated.

Town Park – The new petition in the men’s bathroom is complete.  Councilman Lonneville is now waiting on electrical quotes.  Electrical quotes will be for the hallway and men’s bathroom followed by quotes for the main party room, kitchen, and recreation area.  Councilman Lonneville asked why the two refrigerators in the main party room have not been moved into the kitchen yet?  Councilman Lonneville also asked why the park cleaner has not been cleaning after baseball each week?  The security cameras are scheduled to be installed, June 27th.  The Dust to Dawn light at the park entrance needs to be replaced.  The light is out and currently not working.  Councilman Lonneville stated grass is coming up on the Town Park basketball courts.  Does it need to be resealed?  Estimates are still needed from Tim Boerman for draining/ditching work that needs to be done at the Town Park.  Councilman Lonneville also stated estimates are still needed for the new sidewalks around the building at the Town Park.

Town Hall – Kathy Cauwels has been getting estimates for a new roof.  Ms. Cauwels is also trying to get estimates to repair the stucco on the building as well.  Jacobs is no longer interested in the repair.
