He needs his noise permit approved for the Haunted School as it will start September 30th and will end October 30th on Fridays and Saturdays from 7pm to Midnight. This was discussed in further detail.
- Next item on the agenda was the Fund Summary Report that was updated throughout the end of the day with most transfers and bills paid.
- Council was given a copy of the Park & Pool report though the end of August. This does not include the specific breakdown for the Pool but the Pool made revenue of $24,638.06 with expenses being $45,808.26 leaving a difference of $21,170.20.
- Council has been given the Monthly water report for August that Lisa has provided. They discussed the delinquent accounts and what the breakdown included.
- Tom stated that the first item on his agenda was for Council to discuss the request to vacate the alley west of Bennett Street from Christy Catalytics. Tom stated that he took Mr. Rice and Mr. Locke over to look at it. This was discussed in further detail.
- Next item on the agenda is just for Council to look over. It is a copy of a letter from Northern Perry County Water explaining the sewer rate increase to Sewer South out on Ceramic Road. The Village is going to send inserts with the water bills to let customers know. Council discussed this further.
- Commodity Food Supplement Program of Southeast Ohio was requesting to use the Village Park for passing out commodities since they have outgrown the Rec Center parking lot. The next one will be November 7th and then January 9th. Council discussed how the best setup would be for the most efficient flow of traffic.
- Chris Rice asked Council if they would authorize the difference in cost for purchasing Climbing Wall supplies since he has $470 left from donations but cost will be around $600. Chris Rice asked about tracking papers for ethnicity and Bill Hampton stated that they should be down on his desk and if not Brittany can make more copies for them.
- Joey Carr asked about using the Rec Center for an EPOTA 8 hour webinar. He wanted to bring all of the officers in and it would be November 14th from 8am to 4pm. And if they decided to have pot luck, is it possible to set it up in the concession. There needs to be internet capability for this and Tom stated that he would talk to George about this to make sure what all needs done.
- Chris Mohler stated that Ralph let him know to let Council about his update on a grant to replace turn out gear and air packs. He would like to use this grant writer service for $2,500. There is a reimbursement of up to $1,500 if the grant goes through. Ralph will be here next week to discuss in more detail with Council. He also stated that if this works, next year we could try for something else.
