SheUtoy HM Village Board BMen and Joan IPfaff, Rt 47, Huntley, appeared beflore the Hurt- ley Boatd to secure a Ucense to operate the tavern now known as COieman's Tavern. They hc4>e to be able to opiate by Jan. 1. The otostacle is the fact that in the Vil¬ lage Ordinanoe a tavern owner or the one who operates the tavern mast Uve in HiHitley. TTie PfSafTs outside of Huntley Mayor Don Ensatrom and Trustee Robert Fnank pointed out to Pfaff that if he were incorporated he oould then aprioint a manager who Mves in Huntley to operate his establishment. Mr. Pfaff does t»t wish to incorporate, if he can do it any other way. He stated that he plans to live above the tavern in pertaps 3 years. The Board voted to give the license contingent upon Mr. P8aff beconang a corporation. He plans to call his new enter¬ prise PfaflTs Pub. In artother matter the Board voted to allow a per diem of $25 per meeting as compensation for Vil¬ lage Board of Trustees instead of the present $25.00. Tlie deadline for Ihe spring election is Feb. 10. The Clerk's salary is $550. There was some objection to the police using an unmarked car for the potice work. Only oue of the two police cars Is marked. Chief of Police Dziewior stated that he tries to use the unmarked oar occasion- aliy so that the n»arked car will have a rest. The patrolling of the school dur- the basketball games or other ac- ti'Tities was discussed. Mayor En- eti)om said he he could not see plac¬ ing a man in constant siKveilance iati games because poiice have oth- en duties. The same is true of the ©•ssing guard servioe at 3:30. He said that if the school needed such service that they ooutd hire an att Hy" pcAiceman and pay him as Unloo-Spectal Machiae Company does. * .pan ZMer, President at tbe School Board and Chuck Ruth, Trus¬ tee, appeared asking for a cross¬ walk at Cfaurch and Douglas streets. It was approved. Alfred Joidi requested that the Village pay part of a bill ctf f271 'Which he was changed by Bakley for the repair of Hs sewer wMch hack¬ ed up in 1970, He says that the bvttk oocured in tbs liiM of way and therefore is the City's respon¬ sibility. The Board' voted to pay half of the hilL The oMtioB was tttade hy l\lr. Ron SbneMipe, seooniifld by Mr. Heib Eggen. Raymond and Richamd Cole re¬ quested a permit aUo«4ng them to fill land which is looated on Mill St. across from the Dean CSmpany. Mayor Donenstrom stated that ihe land is in the flood plane and that the floods there drains into the Kishwaukee River. He said that there are strict rules regBixibg fiffl- ing in flood plane land now. There are 13.7 acres in the pro¬ perty and the brothers ¦wish to use fin from a factory which is said to be composed of clay and sfflkl and has been fired to remove metal. Mr. Randy Woodman, Village engineer was requested to study the matter and to report back. The Vfl¬ lage will pay for thds inveaaigation, but they plan to make an otdinance which will require the petitioner to pay tor such a survey or chemdoai analysis for possible pollution. There is a five acre slough in the property and fear vras expressed that if this was filled In tliat it would cause the water to diialn off on the adjacent property. It looks like the polling pond connected with the sewerage dis¬ posal plant is necessary in the Hundley sewerage ^sposal plant plans. This will not cost the vil¬ lage much as Engineer Randy Woodman said that he stiH has the plans that he made in 1968 (which were never used). Huntley is niKnber 113 on the list to get Federal funds which, hopefiJiy, wMl be forth cmning soon.
