Tilton considers proposed animal rescue center



If suitable agreements can be reached with the county and city of Danville, those governmental bodies would only have to provide animal control services and would not have to house the animals.

Several residents who live east of the proposed facility expressed concerns about odors and the noise from barking dogs.

Jacobs said the dog runs would be equipped for quick cleaning of the kennels and the walls and ceiling would be lined with sound-deadening building material.

The board took no action, but will hold a meeting with Jacobs and residents living near the proposed site to gather more information.

In other board action, trustees:

— Approved the annual appropriation ordinance for the fiscal year that began May 1 and ends April 30, 2014. The ordinance anticipates a 3 percent increase in village expenditures.

— Approved the only bid for a vacant lot at 209 South L Street to Scott Weidig for $800.

— Approved the annexation of property located behind the ballpark. The property was recently de-annexed by the city of Danville.

— Approved an intergovernmental agreement with Danville Township for mosquito abatement in the village. The agreement calls for the village to pay the township $2,500 for providing the service.

— Approved the payment of $54,167 to Foth Infrastructure and Environment LLC of Champaign for engineering services for the 14th Street project.

— Approved payment of $600,000 to Stark Excavating for work on the 14th Street project.

— Approved payment of $1,836 to Burke Spring Shop for repairs to village dump truck and fire truck.

— Approved payment of $2,215 to Flags USA for flags for the village.

— Approved payment of $1,012 to Kesler, Nelson, Garman, Brougher and Townsley of Danville for legal fees.

— Approved payment of $5,209 to Brickyard Landfill for dumping fees for village cleanup day.

What’s next

The Tilton Village Board will meet at 6 p.m. July 18 in the municipal building.
