Palestine Village Board Moves Forward on “Ramsey” Property

(Palestine) – The Palestine Village Board of Trustees held their regular monthly meeting Thursday evening. The Board heard that there is “a light at the end of the tunnel” in regards to the “Ramsey” properties. The village has received many of the deeds to the parcels. The board approved the transfer of funds for the new squad car. The transfer was necessary because the grant money was held up due to the recent government shutdown. Palestine Police Chief, Jeff Besing, was on hand for last night’s meeting and is reminding the community to make sure their house number is clearly visible from the road.
