He had put an outline/ time frame together for Council to look at regarding this Storm Water Study. This would have a projected start date of April 2018. James Roberts will probably complete this study and he participated in the Study completed in Gambier regarding theirs that we used as a template. This was discussed in further detail. Mayor Redfern explained that a meeting he had attended, all the key players were available and was able to ask the grant providers if this study would be eligible for grants and it was explained that if the mean income of the residents of Crooksville was below $40,000, we can get the 0% financing. This was discussed in further detail.
