CARTHAGE Village trustees told two who spoke during the public forum at last Mondays meeting they would have to research their issues.
Amanda Gump requested permission to release paper lanterns off Guyot Island as a memorial to women who experienced the death of an infant. The board tabled the request to consult with village attorney Mark G. Gebo.
Former Department of Public Works Superintendent Charles Hoffman came before the board to dispute his retirement pay. The board informed him it would help him obtain employment records; however, he would have to bring up his grievance with the state retirement system.
Village Clerk Kristy L. OShaughnessy was instructed to investigate an accident that occurred Oct. 23 on Elm Street during which a fire hydrant was damaged. The village will bill the drivers insurance for repair and replacement costs.
Lorna Swan, Veterans of Foreign Wars Auxiliary Americanism chairwoman, presented an American flag to village President G. Wayne McIlroy to replace the worn one at his home.
Trustees agreed to give $100 to the Carthage Lions and Elks to aid with the annual Community Thanksgiving Feast.
