- LMI Survey – Exciting news!! The Village LMI Survey came in at 52.42%. This means that 52.42% of the village qualifies as low to moderate income and as such the village will now be eligible for additional grant funding for infrastructure improvements through the Ohio Development Services Agency. Thank you to all citizens for taking the time to complete and return the survey.
- Halloween in the Village – The mayor has announced that the Annual North Baltimore Halloween Parade will take place at 7:00pm on Saturday October 28, 2017. With the Main St. waterline replacement project taking place in the 200 block of North Main St, the parade will most likely begin at Village Park (costume contest judged in shelter house # 1) and march west on High St, to Main St. where it will proceed north to Broadway St., ending with cider and doughnuts at the fire station. Trick or Treat in the Village will be Tuesday October 31, 2017 from 6:00pm-7:30pm.
- Street Sweeper – Jim Balough with Jack Doheny Companies evaluated our street sweeper and offered us $2500 in trade. We also have the option of selling our current street sweeper on GOVdeals.com, or just through a local advertisement and auction process. There is currently $75,000 in the 901 Fund being saved to go towards the purchase of a new street sweeper. In addition there will be close to $200,000 in the Street Sweeping Fund 821 by the end of 2017 since a special assessment for street sweeping provides $65,000 per year.
- Water Tower On the agenda tonight you will see Ordinance 2017-35 for a third reading which authorizes the Village Administrator to enter into an agreement with Poggemeyer Design Group to design a new 500,000 gallon water tower to be constructed on the village owned property on East Water Street. This new addition will allow for equalized water pressure throughout the village and also allow for growth in our community. Now that the Village has been designated LMI we can apply for critical infrastructure grant monies towards this water tower project.
- Main Street Corridor – The Preconstruction Meeting for Phase II, the replacement of the 200 block of Main Street Waterline will take place on Tuesday October 3, 2017 at 10:00am at Village Hall. At this meeting we will get a “tentative schedule” of the project. The substantial completion date for this project, as defined in the terms of our grant agreement with OPWC is November 15, 2017. It is a strong probability that the project will still be taking place on October 28, 2017, meaning the street will still be torn up and the route for the Annual Halloween Parade will need to be adjusted accordingly. Shelter House #1 has already been booked to host the costume contest prior to the Halloween Parade and the football field area, park drives, and the parking area of the water plant and street garage can be utilized for the staging and line up of the parade should the route need to be changed.
More information on the exact route of the Halloween Parade will be communicated the week of October 23rd.
