Tom stated that we do not have anyone in house but he would recommend getting estimates. Brittany stated that they used to get repairs done at South East Area Transit. Council discussed what repairs needed made. Mr. Redfern stated that the EMS used South East Area Transit mainly because they do certified work. The Fire Truck work was always done at Finley Fire.

CITIZENS COMMENTS/ COMPLAINTS:  Shelly Anderson was present from BA Disposal to discuss with Council the problem with the single trash hauling situation that is being bid out. She presented Council with her concerns on how this will affect herself as well as other small businesses. She feels that having multiple trash haulers help keep prices competitive. Shelly feels that these bid specs make it impossible for some to even place a bid. One of her problems is the fact that it takes thirty days for legislation to go into effect but bid packets were already done and advertised. She stated that she will be forced to get paperwork to file a referendum to have this placed on the ballot and she is asking council to rethink this and place on ballot for the residents to vote on.  Shelly asked how many trash haulers there are because she can’t come up with all of them. Brittany stated that there are ten or eleven and she named all of them for her. Shelly stated that Kimble and J&J are the same company. Mr. Redfern gave her an example of how having a contract with one trash hauler would be beneficial. It was discussed on what issues will still arise and the reasoning behind why Council is looking at going this route. Shelly stated that her biggest problem will be getting the insurance requirements because she won’t be able to turn a bid in and she will not have a business left. Council discussed this in further detail. Tom asked where the insurance numbers came from? Mr. Redfern stated that most came from South Zanesville. Jan Baughman asked what quote Shelly received from the company. Shelly stated that she cannot get one but would continue to look into it. Mr. Redfern reminded her that Council has the right to reject any and all bids for this. She stated that she feels that she has 30% of the customers in Crooksville and that would add quite a bit of work.

Mr. Hampton stated that the bands played in the Rec Center Saturday night and Seth was present to give Brittany the money for this.

ADJOURNMENT: A motion to adjourn was made by Mr. Redfern and seconded by Mr. Hampton. Motion carried.
