Mayor Redfern gave an update to Council on the Phase I and II studies going on at Luncheon Muncheon and old PCC property. Phase II is almost done but tanks will have to be removed and additional testing done after they are removed as directed by EPA. It was stated that there may have been an old refueling station where the old car wash was that they would need to look at as well. It is moving forward and to have an agreement between the Village and Luncheon Muncheon if it leeches out more so we can apply for additional ground fill money. The old Coachman property was checked and will be considered all clear and Mayor Redfern found out this week that this property has been sold for $12,500.
