ANTWERP – The Antwerp Village Council met in regular session on Monday, Feb. 25. The first utility bill for the new depot was a hot topic among the council and drew attention from most board members. Progress with the new Dollar General continues and Antwerp clean-up day has been scheduled at the meeting.

A recent utility bill from AEP in the amount of $4,112 for heating the depot had several council members questioning if the village can continue to operate the depot.

“We are a small village and we will go broke with this kind of bill each month. We can’t do this,” said Council President Jan Reeb.
