Village Administrator:

Ms. Murray informed all of council there was a phishing scam today. Mr. Kirk received an email from what was similar to Ms. Murray’s email address asking him for money. Luckily, they caught this and no money was transferred.

3) Main Street Corridor – waiting on permit- then will go door to door informing people.

4) Municipal Building Communications Tower – project is finished and everyone seems pleased.

5) Wood County Economic Development Membership – Membership dues for 2017 are due. Previously North Baltimore has had a Board Level Membership ($1500 per year) but last year dropped down to a Supporting Level Membership ($500 per year).

Mr. Van Mooy wanted to know is the $1500 worth it? Maybe Wade Gottschalk could give us 5 good reasons to go with the higher cost verses the lower cost. Was he too busy to answer the email?

Mr. Carles was interested in knowing what does this do for us? It was explained by Ms. Murray that we get a seat at the table or we don’t.

Mr. Van Mooy said “no question- we go for the 1500, important to have a seat at the table.”

Proposed Motion: To authorize the Village Administrator to send in our Membership dues for 2017 to Wood County Economic Development Commission at the _$1500__level.

The final product was reviewed at the COTW meeting and should be adopted at the council meeting on Tuesday January 17, 2017.

Proposed Motion: To adopt the 2017 winter weather policy and revoke any and all winter weather policies that were in place prior to this 2017 policy.

Mr. Rose made the motion to adopt the 2017 Winter Policy. Second by Mr. Patterson. All approved.

    1. Robert – The Council Minutes are sent to us by the Village Clerk, following approval by council. They are posted as is. So there was no reference “by the press” within the context of this posting.
