DANVILLE — Street projects in the village of Danville have been going well so far this spring.

That’s what Danville Village Council members heard Monday when Councilman Jeff Furay and Village Administrator Rob McDonald reported on those projects.
“The alleys have turned out well and are firming up,” Furay said.

The village used a process where they till up the old pavement, then repack it in and it fuses together as vehicle traffic drives over it during the warmer weather days.

McDonald also reported his crew has been crack sealing pavement around the village. He said they have been crushing limestone and then adding in mortar and water to fill in potholes. They then tamp down the mix and then put in cold patch over top. McDonald said that process has been working well, especially now they can use the crack sealing machine to add a layer of tar in the initial mix.

In his position as zoning enforcement officer, McDonald reported there were two nuisance issues that he believes will be straightened up after talking with the property owners. An issue with trash on Richards Street was taken care of the next day, and one with high grass was partially taken care of soon after the discussion.
He also stated he issued a sign permit for a new office for Deb Payne Insurance.
