Guest – Douglas Irwin, CPA discussed our annual audit. It is much better, it has a clean opinion, no problems. The Assets are going up. All funds now have a positive cash flow, and the General fund now has a reasonable balance. Looking back over the past three years you wouldn’t know it was the same accounts. If everything continued going that it was three years ago, the Village would have collapsed.
Trent Johnson discussed the short in the Christmas lights. Cost per unit to replace garland, lights and labor is approximately $150.
