ANTWERP – The Antwerp Village Council met briefly Monday evening. Two resolutions unanimously passed and Police Chief George Clemens sent out a warning concerning door-to-door handymen.

Clemens reminded council that during the summer months there is a higher level of crime even in a small community like Antwerp. Recently, there has been an influx of “so-called” handymen combing the area promising to do work and then taking people’s money.
