Village’s band shell benches up for sale

Published: Wednesday, July 3, 2013 1:15 a.m. CST

MOUNT MORRIS – The Village Board is selling most of the old wooden band shell benches, removed when a concrete pad and new benches were installed earlier this year.

The village will keep six in case they are needed; the remaining 18 are for sale for $35 each. Those interested in buying a bench can sign up at the Village Hall until July 30. If more than 18 sign up, a lottery will be held to determine who the buyers are.

The limit is one bench per household.
