Meredosia board moving ahead with property sale

Meredosia village board member Alan Taylor has expressed concern that some of the part-time police officers in the village have not been on the work schedule for several months, although the village is paying for their personal equipment, such as vests.

Mayor David Werries said he would take Taylor’s concerns to Police Chief Rusty Richard, who is on vacation. 

Board members approved purchasing a conducted energy weapon for $2,754 for the police department.

In other business, the board approved putting up village lots for bids. 

A property at 128 N. Marion St. and eight wooded lots behind Meredosia-Chambersburg High School will be offered. The wooded lots will be sold as one, according to board member Ernie Gregory.

Legal requirements must be followed for the village to sell the lots, including advertising the bidding process. Gregory said all titles came out clean when he worked with the village attorney on the selling process.

The village will buy a new fence for Boyd Park.

Gregory said he would like to get playground equipment for the older children.

Werries told the board that the village has let two families use the former Church of Christ building that the village bought. One family donated $50 for the building’s use, according to Werries.

Rental amounts and other details about the building will be determined at a later meeting.
