Markle sets May Clean-Up, garage sale, Easter Egg Hunt

The Markle Town Council voted on several items Wednesday, including the acceptance of a bid from the Huntington City-Township Public Library board on the future of the Markle library branch and the town hall. Pick up the Thursday, March 20, News-Banner for more information.

The council also voted to approve four leak adjustments:
• Markle United Methodist Church, $598.86 for a frozen water pipe in the utility room of its rental property.
• Judith Mower, in the amount of $119.27 for a leak in her crawl space.
• Cheryl Thomas, in the amount of $200.45 for a broken pipe under her rental property.
• Regina Krach, in the amount of $36.44 due to an accounting error.

Also Wednesday, the council heard of upcoming evnets:

• The town's May Clean-Up dates have been set.
Tuesday, May 20: Metal only
Tuesday, May 27: All other items

Items too large for regular trash collection will be collected on these days, including furniture, carpeting, and appliances.

Items that will not be collected include hazardous material, tires, liquid paints, brush, wire, fence, construction items, or items disposed of in the normal curbside garbage pick-up.

There will be no charge for one cubic yard or less picked up, but there will be a charge of $10 for each additional cubic yard picked up.

The town supervisor will make the estimate, and all fees are to be paid in advance at the Town Clerk's office before the curbside pick up will be made.
