Council discusses break-ins at park

Staff Writer
ARLINGTON — A recent break-in at a concession stand at the Arlington Park was discussed Monday by Village Council.
Candy, a hot dog roller and other foods were stolen after a door was broken.
The theft is being investigated by the Hancock County Sheriff’s Office, according to village officials.
Arlington Council briefly considered using a new locking system for the stand.
Also, a latch was damaged at a soccer shed at the park, but no items were reported missing.
Councilman Terry L. Huffman wondered if additional patrols were needed at the park by the sheriff’s office.
In other park matters, an inspection of work at the village swimming pool is pending after repairs were made to the pool’s concrete.
Originally, the pool had been slated to open Monday. The inspection should be done this week, weather permitting.
Separately, a Forest firm will upgrade a ditch tile in a section of Powell Drive to alleviate drainage in that vicinity. Crooks Excavating will perform the work at a cost not to exceed $5,228.
Also, council set plans in motion to obtain a new grass fire transportation truck for the village fire department.
Council agreed to seek a loan from Commercial Savings Bank for the truck, which is estimated at $33,755. The new vehicle would replace a 1967 model.
Separately, council heard updates of plans to refurbish the floor of the fire hall and paint some of the rooms.
Equipment and trucks will be moved from the hall and stationed at other locations in the village during the work.
Separately, council heard that street sweeping will be done in the village this week.
