 Review of Village Cook Out: The Village event on October 30 was generally viewed as a success. One suggestion was that instead of bringing cookers in, we could have the meat cooked off-site and delivered for about half the price (no whole hog). There was a general feeling that this was a good idea. It was decided that we needed to have an official policy on left-over food and that the policy would be presented at the next meeting. There was also a sense that the Village needs to settle on a name for the event and stick with it. Village Picnic seemed to resonate with the Council members present.


Workers Comp Bid Status: The Village had received a bid from Albemarle Insurance but had not yet received a bid from NCLM. The bid received was the same as current costs. There was some discussion about the need to purchase locally.


Website Status Report: Riemann presented details he had submitted to Huck Huckabee for an estimate. Huckabee had responded with an estimate of $1850 to build the site and to hold four sessions on how to enter information and pictures on the site. Herron made a motion to move ahead with the website at the stated price. Burrage seconded the motion which passed 3/0. It was decided to include snapshots of Council members and Board members.


Zoning Application Report:  A zoning application, which requests a rezoning of the property at the corner of Glenmore and US 52, was discussed. The Planning Board Hearing is set for Thursday, November 11. The role of the Village Council was reviewed.


Appointment of Board of Adjustment-Planning Board Member: A motion was made by Herron to replace Jordan Bowman on the Board of Adjustment and Planning Board with Ahren Burrage. The motion was seconded by Burrage. The motion carried 3/0.


Consideration of Council Members for the Bolton Position: Jennifer Bolton has officially resigned from the Village Council. Individuals who might fill the position were discussed. Riemann was requested to inquire about the interest of one individual. Council was to think of other possibilities so that Riemann might inquire about their interest also. Replacement selection would occur at the next meeting.



Closed Session: Riemann requested a motion to go into Closed Session as allowed by State Statute 143-318-11 Part a(5). Herron made the motion which was seconded by Burrage and which passed 3/0.
