In other business, the board decided to table any action to purchase surveillance cameras. They expect to make a decision at the Monday, Oct. 30, village board meeting.

The decision will involve the type of equipment to purchase and from which firm. Cameras will be placed at the village hall and at the recycling drop-off site.

Village officials have reports of damage to sidewalks and fences near the village hall, and other reports of people leaving television sets and other non-recyclable items at the drop-off.

Board members also learned from Trustee Logan Hamilton that the village has received a $3,000 grant to purchase trees from Steve’s Nursery, Geneseo.

Twenty-one trees of different varieties will be planted on the boulevard and on the north side of the boulevard on Center Street, and seven additional trees will be planted at other locations in the village. The trees will be planted in October by village staff, trustees and Cambridge High School FFA members.

Village president Margie Martin complimented Hamilton and members of the tree committee for their work on the tree project.
