Items that will be sold at the market are as follows: fruits, vegetables, eggs, honey, meats, cheeses, baked goods, handmade jams, handmade soaps, handmade candles, arts, crafts, flowers, plants and shrubs.

The market is sponsored by the Osnaburg HOPE committee.

In park business, council discussed placing cement walkways in front of restrooms in the village park. That would allow those who need a wheel chair or cane to enter the restrooms easier.

Council member Reggie McGee, at the last council meeting, reported a volunteer group with the local softball and baseball association is ready to move forward with constructing a snack shack at the park. That triggered questions and concerns about zoning and building permits.

A motion was passed to pay building permits with the cost not to exceed $1,000.

In other business, council members:

/ HEARD Chris Kopp thank councilman Nick Collins for assisting in a CPR course;

/ RECEIVED the 2017 budget from fiscal officer Barb Hall who will ask for approval by Aug. 15.
