ARLINGTON — Arlington residents expressed concern Monday to Village Council about storm water drainage problems in the Wilch Street vicinity.

No simple solution was reached during extended discussion. Village Council will do further study on the matter.

In another ongoing issue, council again was presented a complaint about the dilapidated condition of a North Main Street house that sustained fire damage more than a year ago.

Trash, tarps and insulation are among the eyesores there.

The village lacks a maintenance and building code that could specify what needs to be fixed, according to village officials.

“We can only do what the law says we can do,” Councilman Brian Essinger said.

Council will look into what issues can be addressed at the site.

Separately, the annual village junk collection will be held at the village park from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday.

Bins will be available for Arlington residents. Items not accepted include household trash, cement or oils.

Tires and batteries will be collected at a separate container at the site.

In other business, council:

  • Heard there was some interest in reviving the neighborhood Block Watch program.
  • Was told the new fire truck could be in service soon.
