Channahon officials seek photos for Veterans' Wall

The village of Channahon is accepting photos of veterans to add to its Veterans’ Wall displayed in the Village Hall lobby.

Channahon Village President Missey Moorman Schumacher called for photos at Monday’s Village Board meeting.

Schumacher said those who bring in photos should also come with service information for the individual.

Also at the meeting, trustees approved a BYOB ordinance, which allows businesses to permit customers to bring their own wine or beer into the facilities.

“We have had requests by several businesses,” Village Administrator Thomas Durkin said.

Businesses such as salons and spas, barbershops and restaurants that do not already have another type of liquor license can take advantage of the Class M BYOB license. Only one 750-mL bottle of wine or 36 ounces of beer per patron is allowed, and the service is permitted only from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m.

The fee for the annual license is $500, one-half the fee of most of the village’s current liquor licenses. Establishments may charge a corkage fee for customers who use the BYOB.

The ordinance includes information about sealing and removing open wine bottles for patrons to take home with them, which is state law, Village Attorney David Silverman said.

Also Monday, Justin Schultz was hired for the position of water operator at a salary of $61,194.

Two water pumps were purchased for a total of $27,705, and water and sewer connection fees were established for the four units of the Blackberry Street Apartments, at a total of $30,832 for water and $30,692 for sewer.
