IV. Public Participation:
Wade Gottschalk, Wood County Economic Development Director and Jerry Greiner, Northwest Water and Sewer addressed the council.
Mr. Gottschalk gave an overview of the efforts that are being made to attract business to the CSX area. He stated that it is very important to have a readily developable site. Such a site should have water, sewer, power and communications. There is a site across from the railyard that is lacking only sewer.
The mentioning of the need for sewer connections gave Mr. Greiner the opportunity to propose an agreement that would allow Northwest Water and Sewer to tie into the village’s sewer. Many details would have to be worked out but it was the consensus of council that Ms Murray should attend the 01-22-16 TMACOG wastewater meeting and express very tentative interest on the part of the village to participate in such a venture.
