Village Council Meeting 9/10/2019

Downtown: The concrete is done on the west side of the 100 block of Main Street….

Village Council Meeting 9/10/2019,  “Committee of the Whole” Meeting

by Sue Miklovic

Village Council held it’s monthly “Committee of the Whole” meeting on Tuesday night at Council Chambers. Matt Beegle, Council President lead the meeting and called it to order at 5:30pm. Councilmen Art Patterson and Ty Carles were absent.

 Here are the main topics discussed at the one- hour meeting:

Public Safety– We are on target to have 140 Fire Dept. runs and 700 EMS runs for the year. Mayor Goldner said, “Last Friday we had three calls at the same time.” EMS Chief Phil Walter stated, “We are not missing any calls. We had two squads out when the third call came in. The Fire Department First Responder assisted us in that.”

Public Utilities– Moving forward with new rates for Bulk Water Supply customers. Legislation will be introduced at 9/17/19 meeting. Brian Roberts gave an update on upcoming work at the water treatment plant. Clarifier sealing should begin September 16. Gear drive installation will begin soon after their expected delivery date of September 19. Also, a 12-foot mower deck, slated for replacement next year, will need to be purchased sooner, as it literally “fell into pieces” this week, verified by photos. The village may have to rent one until a new one can be purchased. Cost will be shared by Public Utilities and Public Works, as they both use the equipment. The current deck that broke is 20 years old. There also was a brief discussion about the procedures for notifying people of possible water leaks.

Finance and Technology– Leisa Zeigler reminded Council their Economic Development contract is already into its 9th month of a 12th month contract, and if council plans to renew it, they need to prepare for such action. President Beegle replied, “I’m thoroughly impressed with what Mr. Dickerson has done so far.” Mr. Swartz, Finance Officer, reported the State Auditor needs a few more weeks to finalize his report of his prior audit in the village. Swartz feels “His recommendations are going to be more related to recategorizing and procedural in nature.” After the state’s report Swartz will be able to complete a Fund Balance Sheet “As it should have looked for December 2018” he said.

Public Works-Updated information regarding swimming pool and fencing was shared with the council members. It needs to be updated in the Walter Drane Codified Ordinance manual. Mr. Beegle requested a Special Public Works Committee meeting for the 16th of September at 5:30pm for the purpose of discussing SIDEWALKS(revisions to construction policy and recommended priority repair list for 2020)

Public Works Head Doug Wickard reported that the concrete is done on the west side of the 100 block of Main Street, and that power washing would be completed Wednesday or Thursday, followed by the traffic shifting to the West side of Mainstreet, including using the sidewalks only on the west side, so that preparation can begin for the construction on the east side. AEEP is scheduled to remove the current street lights so that the new ones can be installed. There is a ”Bump-out” that needs to be completed on the west side, directly in front of the movie theater that can’t be completed until later due to the temporarily altered traffic flow. The initial blacktop that was just put down on the west side will be marked to guide traffic with the new traffic flow. After BOTH sides are completed, the entire block will have an additional two-inch topcoat installed, with the final street painting then. “Hopefully the East side will go as smoothly,” Wickard said.

Personnel, Policy, and Ordinance Review-Councilman Tim Engard is continuing on his journey to have the fee removed for anyone seeking a Zoning permit in town. “I just don’t think its right to charge someone for improving their property.” He wants them to still obtain the permit, just not have to pay a fee for it. The current policy charges a fee, and a fine, if you construct anything without the required permit. The village will investigate what other villages in the area are doing about this issue.

The Mayor reminded everyone that flags should be flown at half-staff Wednesday (9/11) from Sun Up until Sun Down.

 

 

Highlights from Recent Village Council Meeting

“Drive at your own risk on Cherry Street, west of Jewett” (it is NOT village property)

by Sue Miklovic

Village Council convened for September business last Tuesday,
September 3. 

I’ve listed some of the highlights from what I heard said:

#Discussion was held concerning the hazardous driving conditions through the Hanson Aggregate property (Stone Quarry). Residents are urged to use caution if they choose to drive through from Cherry Street, west of Jewett. Aaron Patterson stated, “That’s private property, not the Village’s” Former Mayor Mike Julien who was in attendance at the meeting spoke up, “Technically, it not in the village. It’s Henry Township.” Residents are advised to “Drive at your own risk”(JP and I drove through there a few days ago to check it out. The ride was not too bumpy. It appeared that stone or ground up pavement of some type had been  put down in several holes and over some of the surface) 

#Village Administrator Michael Brillhart reported on the many projects going on currently, as well as those being planned for in the future. Grants have already been secured to fund some. Others are in the application phase. His most encouraging news was that he had received a response from the Ohio Rail Commission concerning drainage issues (Hutchison property) ORC advised if CSX doesn’t respond for cooperation with maintaining their property, the village should contact PUCO.

#Many topics were mentioned, and are likely coming up for discussion again at Tuesday’s “Committee of the Whole” meeting, including:
*Fall tree trimming
*Pool fences
*Vicious Dog Policy/Dogs running at Large
*Procedure for notifying Homeowners of High weeds/Mowing
*Water treatment equipment upgrades
*Public hearing for a proposed Zoning amendment

Committee of the Whole begins at 5:30pm on Tuesday, September 10,2019.

Village Council Met Last Tuesday

Voting delayed until end of meeting. Deadline met ….

by Sue Miklovic

Only four of the six village council members arrived at the Tuesday evening August 6th council meeting at council chambers. Both Aaron and Art Patterson were absent for the meeting when it began at 5:30pm, hindering Council’s  ability to pass legislation. 

The Public Participation section allowed resident Shirley Hutchison to address the council for the third time in the last couple of months about on-going drainage issues near her property. This has been a problem since early spring this year, as well as in recent years. Recently Ms. Hutchison met with State Representative-District 3 Haraz Ghanbari who is trying to help resolve the issue, that according to Ms. Hutchison is being caused by CSX blockage of the ditch drainage near her property. “ I hope something gets done” she said.

 The village approved the hiring of Paula Steen as the  Utility Billing Clerk, effective August 26, 2019. She has 24 years of experience in a similar position. The village also approved the hiring of Andrew Slembarski as a part time EMT employee and also the hiring of Dakota Kimble as a volunteer fireman beginning August 6 .

Finance Officer Tony Swartz reported the State of Ohio Auditor’s office is wrapping up the audit of 2017 and 2018 records in the village. He also reported the village is moving forward in the implementation of software for paying water and sewer fees and other payments made to the village. The on-line paying option is not mandatory.

The Village Administrator reported a few locations of top coat soil will be reseeded as part of the final inspection of the Maple Street Sidewalk project. 
%- The Downtown Revitalization Project is scheduled to begin this week. The village owned property near the Main Street railroad crossing will be used to stage the equipment for the project.
% -The Neighborhood Revitalization Grant is entering the design and engineering phase. The six projects will be designed after the engineering firm is selected. Actual construction will likely not take place until the Spring of 2020.
%- The 200 Block of N. Main St. “Ohio Public Works Commission” Grant will start the bidder selection process in August, with construction anticipated in Summer 2020. This will include paving of the 200 block of North Main Street.
%- The Village is applying for a 2019 Wood County Park District grant
%- The basketball goal systems have been acquired from the previous WC Park grant funds, and should be installed within a couple of weeks.

The Mayor reminded Council members to make sure they are updated on the Sunshine Law and to have documentation of their completion of the mandatory training.
%- She also commented on the recent Good Ole Summertime Festival, which is sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce.
%- She also shared that the two properties south of the Railroad tracks(one between Main Street and Second Street, the other between Main Street and Tarr Street)have been rented as parking lots for many years by the Chamber for the benefit of the citizens, from CSX.  The Chamber was recently informed  by CSX that the cost to rent these spaces will increase from $150 to $650 each, at the end of the year.


The village intended to vote on a resolution to place a renewal 2 mill levy (for 5 years) that helps to fund Street repairs on the November 2019 ballot. However, five yes votes were needed to insure it’s passage, and there were not enough members present. After a move to Executive Session, the meeting resumed, and Councilman Aaron Patterson arrived, the Council was able to complete the rest of the business on hand with his fellow Council members.

Wednesday at 4:00 PM was the deadline to submit the information to the Wood County Board of Elections in order for it to appear on the November 2019 ballot. The current levy will be collected through 2020, but it is a lengthy, and sometimes expensive  process to place a levy request on the ballot, so council was attempting to be pro-active in being well prepared for the future renewal needs. They began talking last Spring about the importance of not missing the August deadline. The levy generally generates around $87,000 per year for the Village. Because of  Mr. Patterson’s arrival , five members were now available to pass the legislation necessary,  and Mr. Swartz was able to hand deliver the paperwork to the Board of Elections before the deadline on Wednesday.

Also, an ordinance was approved adopting the recommendation of the planning commission which will  allow Hancock Wood Electric to split 2 parcels and add an additional tract to create a new  parcel. The property will be used for the construction of a new Prism Propane corporate building and accompanying facilities to the west of Prism Parkway.
