The Lyndon Village Board approved up to $92,000 from the motor fuel tax fund to put towards road repairs in the Village this summer. The board has a priority list of streets they would like to resurface but the estimate provided by Whiteside County Engineers exceeded the board’s estimated costs. They will seek bids for the streets on the priority list in hopes that the cost will come in less than the estimates and will allow them to repair all the streets on the list.
Approved the dates of May 5th, 6th, 7th for the spring garage sales.
Approved a building permit for Chris Lansford for a garage at 206 3rd Ave E.

Gene Ryan with Ryan’s Tree Service addressed the Council seeking information about the village’s practice of hauling and burning its tree waste outside the Village on private property. Ryan said it is his understanding that it is illegal to burn such waste within 1,000 feet of the village limits. He submitted a FOIA request asking to see the permits that allows the village to continue the practice.
The next regular Board meeting will be held on Tuesday, April at 6PM at the Lyndon Village Hall.
