Dieterich village board members Monday approved the sale of a small parcel of property to the developers of a senior assisted living project.

Rich Probst and Ron Niebrugge of P&N Properties want to develop four units across from the Kluthe Civic Center at Virginia and Pine.  Dieterich Village Clerk Brittny Gipson said the single-story development will be handicapped accessible with the elderly in mind and will be available for purchase, not for rent.  The majority of the property needed will be purchased from the Dieterich Community Development Corporation, but 25 feet needed to properly size the units will be acquired from the Village for 93 cents per square foot, or about $3,400.

Village board members discussed extending sanitary sewer service along Pine to reach the location of the project.

Also Monday, the Dieterich board agreed to purchase a replacement fountain for use in the Liberty Park pond; agreed to stripe the Kluthe Civic Center parking lot; discussed but did not vote on changes to employee job descriptions and personnel policies; and discussed replacing trees planted on the berm.

Dieterich board members awarded village cemetery mowing to Yards Apart Landscaping; extended the deadline for Mark and Susan Dust to complete landscaping work in the village's first TIF District by 60 days to May 31 due to the recent rough weather; and hired Kyle Webb and Ryan Bloemer to work for the village this summer.

The Dieterich board also scheduled a Farewell Open House for Village Trustee Max Meyer, who is not seeking re-election next week after almost 40 years on the Board.  The Open House will be held April 25 from 5-7pm at the Kluthe Civic Center.
