We encourage all who submit items to NBX to submit an ORIGINAL DIGITAL document in Word or pdf.

Scans of printed out items (sort of like a FAX), that were created digitally is sooooo 20th century… But, something is better than nothing – so thanks for submitting!

Village Council Meeting –December 4, 2018 (with updates)

Will meet tonight at 5:30pm for the “Committee of the Whole”…..

by Sue Miklovic

The Village council met last Tuesday, December 4 in the Council Chambers, with Council President Art Patterson and Member Aaron Patterson both absent .

Prior to the beginning of the meeting, Pastor Duane Weaver of Church of the Good Shepherd offered a brief meditation and prayer.

Some of the highlights/topics from the meeting included:

% Gave permission for the North Baltimore High School Choir members to sing Christmas Carols on Main Street in front of the Village Hall on December 17, beginning at 7:00pm. The public has been invited to join the students, as well as students from Elmwood and Van Buren. There will be hot chocolate served.

% Allowing the EMS Chief to purchase a Lucas device for the department, not to exceed $4300.00 with the balance to be paid with grant dollars.

% Agreed to pay Brian Roberts,Utility Director, $7200 for unused vacation time he has accumulated. The EPA requires someone with his level of certification to be present at all times, and none of the current employees have attained that level of training/certification yet. In order for Roberts to use the vacation time he has earned, the village would have to hire a temporary  qualified person, which would be extremely expensive for the village.  The 200 hours he is being paid for will help keep him below the maximum allowable carry-over number of hours. The Village had been talking about the best solution to this situation for several months before taking this action.

% Hired two dispatchers, Krista Noykos and Carol Davis, effective December 5, 2018.

% Agreed to vacate a portion of the north end of Central Avenue for Roll Tite to expand parking at their facility on Elm Street.

% Changed  the first meeting of January 2019 from January 1st to January 2nd.

 % Read a resolution authorizing  the village to adopt the federally approved Wood County Hazard Mitigation plan.

 % Read ordinances including contracting with a company for required water  meter maintenance equipment, setting the Annual Appropriations for expenses,  and giving a third reading to ordinance agreeing to an economic development contract with Black Swamp Locations Strategies.

% Agreed to an updated Brush Policy for the village. The new rules will be in effect in January for 2019, and will be followed for the entire year, and revisited.  (Editors note: We will be posting the full policy, with explanations of the changes and updated guidelines, as soon as they are available to us for publication)

The meeting disbanded in order to go into Executive session. After regrouping no action was taken, and the meeting was adjourned.

Since last Tuesday,  the Mayor has announced the Village has hired a new Village Administrator. A separate story is published regarding this action.

Gavarone Supports Graduation Legislation

Provisions provide clarity to Ohio schools, students & teachers across state…

COLUMBUS—State Representative Theresa Gavarone (R-Bowling Green) this week voted in support of legislation that would ease the graduation requirements for this year’s graduating class to match the requirements implemented for last year’s graduating class, addressing a concern brought forward by Ohio schools.

House Bill 491 requires the State Board of Education to issue substitute licenses to speech-language pathologists, audiologists, registered nurses, physical therapists and other professionals. However, the bill was amended to clarify temporary alternative graduation pathways for 2019 and 2020 high school graduations.

Changes include:

  • Extending the options for the class of 2018 to the class of 2019 with no changes
  • Extending those options to the class of 2020 with certain modifications:
    • The GPA requirement would be cumulative 2.5 for the final two years of high school, instead of just the senior year
    • The capstone project would have to comply with ODE (Ohio Department of Education) guidance on the components of a successful project and the process for evaluation. The guidance must ensure that each capstone project is designed as a culmination of the student’s high school experience
    • The work/community service hours would have to comply with ODE guidance on approval and verification of the hours
    • Requires ODE guidance for the class of 2020 changes to be issued by May 31, 2019
  • Requires ODE, in consultation with the business community and as confirmed by resolution of the State Board of Education, to present its recommendations for a long-term graduation fix and transition plan to the House and Senate education committees by April 1, 2019

“This pressing issue was brought up numerous times both in my frequent meetings with Wood County’s superintendents and in calls and emails from constituents across the district,” Gavarone said. “Extending the alternative pathways for graduation to the classes of 2019 and 2020 was a big priority of mine, and I am happy with what we have accomplished for Ohio’s students.”

The bill now goes to the governor for his consideration.
