DANVILLE — A few village projects were the topic of discussion at the Danville Village Council meeting Monday.

Village Administrator Rob McDonald reported on a storm sewer pipe that collapsed on Middle Street and is causing problems. He reported he met with Edsel’s on the project, which will cost approximately $5,800 to repair. He said because the pipe is the outfall for that section of town and heads to the creek, its size needs to be increased. McDonald said they will install a 24-inch pipe in that area to replace the 12-inch pipe that collapsed.

McDonald also reported the playground equipment will be installed at the park this week, weather permitting, and that Dominion Gas has been working in the village to replace gas mains.

He and councilman Jeff Furay will continue their review of street conditions and should have a needs list completed soon.

Council also set several committee meetings. A tree committee meeting will be Monday, April 8, at 5:30 p.m., while the planning committee will meet Monday, April 15, at 6 p.m., prior to the next council meeting.

There were two resolutions considered by council. The first, which would authorize the insurance for Ladies Night Out, was given a second reading. Ladies Night Out will be held Friday, May 10, in the village.

The second was a resolution authorizing the rezoning of several properties in the village. This one, which was considered two years ago but never completed, was given a first reading. The resolution would rezone, from Residential-2 to Light Industrial-1, properties at 801 and 803 S. Richards St., as well as 23 S. Richards St. and 17 W. Washington St. It would also rezone from R-2 to Neighborhood Business-1 properties at 3 N. Market St. and 3 S. Market St.

The village of Danville will have its spring clean up day with Union Township on Saturday, April 13, from 8 a.m. until noon.

Council went into executive session to discuss personnel. No action was taken.

The next meeting will be Monday, April 15, at 7 p.m.
