Hennepin to Fix Boat Docks

Hennepin will donate $100 to the Peru homeless shelter, fix boat docks instead of replacing as discussed at a previous meeting, and award the Hennepin Vocational Grant to Jordan Hatton, Riley Morris and Katelyn Leitner. Hatton will get the first place grant, with Morris receiving second and Leitner third.

Also Wednesday, the village board heard from village engineer Bill Shafer on a proposed drainage issue on 11th Street, and Shafer also told the board he would be semi-retiring, only working part-time, but would continue to be the head engineer for the village.

After returning from closed session, the board directed village clerk Diana Brandstatter to place an ad to hire a new part-time street department worker, after the resignation of the current part-time employee.
