Kevin stated that he will set up covenants to cover items that are shared such as shingles, siding, water freeze ups, etc. Realtor, Kevin Feather spoke on the need for this type of housing in the Village. Mark Trowbridge stated that he didn’t think that the duplexes had separate water or sewer services from the main, which is not ideal.
