News and Notes
The Village Board received $275 from Artpark & Company as part of a parking agreement between the two parties. The municipality receives $2.50 for each vehicle parked on the plateau during Artpark's "Tuesday in the Park" concert series.
Sutherland said 107 cars were parked on the plateau for the June 26 Foreigner show. Artpark & Company charges $5 for patrons to park in its upper lot or on the plateau.
