MOVIE IN THE PARK – The movie Lego Batman will be shown in Coal Miners’ Park in the Village of St. Charles on June 30 at 8:30 p.m. Admission is free.

GAMING LICENSE – The St. Charles Bowling Association is in the process of acquiring a charitable gaming license for poker games at the Alley. St. Charles Village Manager Matthew Lane explained the bowling association awards scholarships to high school students. This would enable the group to raise more funds. The St. Charles Village Council gave their approval during the June 14 meeting.

WASTE AUTHORITY – During the June 14 meeting, the St. Charles Village Council voted in favor of accepting changes to the contract with Mid-Michigan Waste Authority (MMWA). Village President Marie Roe wanted to know why the Village of Chesaning pulled out of the authority, but St. Charles Village Manager Matthew Lane said it would not be appropriate to say, since he is on the MMWA executive board and they’re involved in litigation with the Village of Chesaning. Roe said she wants to know if Chesaning’s new carrier, Granger, is less expensive. Trustee Jim McPhail said Granger is in hot water in Lansing, with quite a bit of controversy. The village council decided to continue with MMWA.

DPW REPORT – St. Charles Village DPW Director Patrick Mishler provided the village council with a status report during the June 14 village council meeting. He reported Dennis Guzy’s culvert issue has been resolved. An investment in DPW training is paying off. He added the students did a very good job on Beautification Day last month. Councilwoman Diana Kutz said she attended a baseball game at the park; she said the bleachers are in pretty sad shape. Mishler explained usually Little League takes care of their equipment, but ultimately, it’s the village’s responsibility. He would look into it. Meanwhile, through the sewer televising process, several manholes that were covered by asphalt have been located.

PINK MARKS THE SPOT – St. Charles Village residents may notice some pink marks on some of the streets. Evidently the manholes for sewer access were previously asphalted over. Recently, Spicer Group was able to determine where the manholes are and marked them in pink. Olson said, “We have as-built plans that indicate where manholes should be. Then we took a metal detector to located it.”
