The house lots at 6 and 8 Farnham St., pictured above, are currently being considered for a zone change by the village board: one for a business and one for a new fire department parking lot.

continued Also at the meeting, the board:
—Scheduled a special board meeting for 7 p.m. Monday, July 15, to meet with the town board to discuss the project to extend village sidewalks down Fenner Street to Fenner Field. They also scheduled public hearings for the same night at 7:15 p.m. to discuss grant applications underway for further Carpenter’s Barn improvements and for repair and renovation of the Lakeland Park stone wall.
—Rescheduled its regular August meeting to 7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 8, and rescheduled its regular September meeting to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 3.
—Approved a request by Summit Church to close a portion of Seminary Avenue on Friday, July 26, to hold its Vacation Bible School family night from 5 to 7:30 p.m.
—Unanimously approved a resolution to expend up to $14,500 to purchase a pay station for the new 22 Lincklaen St. parking lot. The lot will charge one dollar per hour for parking and will accept cash only. The station is equipped to be upgraded to accept credit cards in the future. The board also heard an update on the parking lot construction from Superintendent of Public Works Bill Carr that, weather-depending, the lot should be completed by the middle of August.
—Created a new category for village fees regarding “occasional operators” (or vendors) in village parks. The current fee is $250 regardless of duration of vending in a village park. The new fee schedule will charge according to the number of days per year vendors operate in a park: under 20 will cost $50, 21 to 40 will cost $100 and 41 or more will cost $150.
—Created a new fee structure for peddlers’ licenses in the village. Peddlers currently are required to register with the village and undergo background checks but pay no fee. The new schedule will charge peddlers a $100 per individual base fee for a peddling license (which covers the cost of the background check), with a tiered fee system of $250 for every additional 30-day increment the peddler(s) operate in the village.
