3. Main Street Corridor –Buckeye Excavating has been in town working on the waterline replacement since Monday March 20. We understand there is some discontent in the public about not being able to park right downtown in front of the businesses. We apologize for this inconvenience but once again this project finally taking place is very exciting for the village. The council has worked on revitalizing downtown for more than a decade and to finally see progress is a giant step in the right direction. We are very happy we are able to replace the original 1890s waterline with a grant from the Ohio Public Works Commission. The Village did experience 2 water main breaks on Friday March 31. The first on Poe Road caused the water pressure to decrease throughout the village and the second was a main break in front of the old Limbo on Main St. and resulted in customers on Main St. being without water for an hour or so.

4. Job Creation Grant – Continental Structural Plastics has submitted an application for the village job creation grant that council passed just before Christmas. There is legislation on the agenda that will give this proposal a second reading at the council meeting. The ordinance provides for a 50% refund of payroll tax paid by CSP each year for 3 three years and requires them to keep said payroll here in North Baltimore for 5 additional years beyond the refund period. The monies that are being refunded for the 3 year term will be used by CSP to develop and train their workforce.

5. Lawn Mowers for Street / Park Dept. – The Public Works Committee worked on obtaining new mowers for the village last year and as part of this agreement we should be getting a new mower this year. More discussion on this subject will be presented at the council meeting.

6. Pinwheels for Wood County Child Abuse Awareness – The Village is partnering with Wood County Department of Job & Family Services, Children’s Services Department on Child Abuse Awareness. April is Child Abuse Awareness Month. Wood County Children’s Service will set up pinwheels to represent each case of child abuse or neglect investigated in the county. There were 73 complaints of child abuse and neglect in North Baltimore investigated by the department last year. Representatives from Wood County JFS will be down on Tuesday morning April 4, 2017 to install 73 pinwheels in front of the Village Reservoir on SR 18. They will also speak at the Village Council Meeting April 4, 2017 giving more information about Child Abuse Prevention.

7. New Playsets at the Village Park – On Friday March 31, 2017 the Village Parks Dept. unveiled the new additions to Village Park. A new 47 foot ADA compliant swing-set span and a new climbing tower stand- alone set was installed by the Village Parks Dept. after taking down the old non-compliant playground equipment that had been in that location. With the new ADA compliant set our Village Park is accessible to all members of our community.

8. New Employees for hire in EMS – Chief Will Mattes has requested 3 new employees for hire in our EMS Division. Since all employees in the North Baltimore EMS are currently part-time this will not add any expense to the department payroll by adding these additional hires. It will allow for flexibility in scheduling so we can assure no employees get close to the 30 hours per week mark. Madison Kellogg, Jared Baker, Crystal Henry and Mariah Waaland have been recommended by Chief Matthes for hire. They are all Basic EMTs and as such will make $10.50 per hour. A form F-19a for each of them was included in the council packet.

Proposed Motion: To hire Madison Kellog, Jared Baker, Crystal Henry, and Mariah Waaland as Basic EMTS effective April 1, 2017 $10.50 per hour.

9. Ballfield Kerfuffle – There were many rumors and inaccuracies floating out in social media regarding the village baseball/softball fields and the school baseball/softball fields. While I cannot speak for the school and any issue they may have had, I can speak for the village and want to let all council and North Baltimore citizens know that I did contact Superintendent Ryan Delaney on Wednesday March 29, 2017 with regard to the village baseball/softball fields and let him know that the village was happy to work with the school if the school needed to use the village fields.

10. Zoning Issues – It is that time of year again when some properties begin to look rough after the spring thaw. I have received several anonymous reports on potential zoning violations. We keep a spreadsheet with the address and date a letter was sent. If progress is not made within 14 days the property owner is referred to NB Mayor’s Court where they can be charged with a Misdemeanor.
