Absent this evening in addition to President Novak was council member John Domanski.
In the Audience tonight was Carolyn Bausch. She stated she was very satisfied with the meeting held recently regarding the work to be done on the Rt 54 railroad crossing. It will only be 3 days and she is not unhappy with that at all.
