The monthly Village Board meeting on Jan. 28 started out on a somber note after Mayor Tim Baldermann called a moment of silence to honor the five officers that were shot or injured in the line of duty in Houston after serving a search warrant on a residence, as was heavily reported on throughout the day.

“There has been an incredible amount of disrespect that’s going toward law enforcement in recent times,” Baldermann said at the start of the meeting. “Something for the good of our country has to turn around.”
