(*) - The Village Board approved a one-time $135,000 increase from the unappropriated fund balance to pay for the Fire House Renovation (Brick veneer repair, etc.).  The project went out to bid two times in 2019-20 budget year.  It was not awarded because the bids were too high.  The project has not been completed to date.  Also, the Crounse House (A1364.400) line increased to $50,000 to cover demolition costs, if needed.
