Mayor Redfern called the meeting to order. Present were Chris Rice, Scott Locke, Bill Hampton, Jan Driggs, Billie Smith, and Chris Mohler. Tom Collins was present.

  1. Present was Ben Carpenter to discuss with Council their intentions of selling Dams 1 & 2. He explained that there may be something the County can do to purchase and make available to the public to enjoy. This was discussed in further detail and would talk more once some details were ironed out. There may be grants available to help out with this.
  2. Next item on Brittany’s agenda was a Fund Summary Report that was updated throughout the end of the day. She explained that the transfers and bills still needed paid but all the revenue was included.
  3. Council was given a monthly water billing report for November that Lisa has put together for them.
  4. Last item on the agenda is that there needs to be two board members elected by Legislative Authority that needs added to the Volunteer Firefighters’ Dependent Fund Board. Council discussed that Bill Hampton and Chris Rice were the two last year and asked if this was still okay. This will be put on the agenda for next Monday night.
  5. Chris Rice explained that he would not be at the following meeting.
  6. Tom stated that the first item on his agenda was to let Council know that the Corp of Engineers is requiring a HTWR investigation done for the Waterline Project. T&M Engineering submitted a proposal to complete this for $11,500 and because this will be paid out of pocket, Tom explained that we will get another estimate for comparison.
  7. Next item on his agenda is for Council to look over the attached proposal for a prepaid smart card system to replace the water salesman to eliminate all cash sales and hopefully curb all of the break ins.
  8. Tom asked Council what the fate of the Old Municipal Building is to be. He needs to know the intent for the building. Council discussed if there were any historical significance or if it needs to be demolished. Council discussed this in further detail.
  9. The following item on his agenda was to discuss Council’s project list. He asked Council to look over and prioritize six projects for the Capital Improvement Five Year Plan. Mayor Redfern explained to Council what a Capital Improvement was and what the project needs. There was a handout they were given highlighting a few key items. Council looked at this further. Council was given a copy of the Village of Baltimore’s revitalization plan to look over.
  10. Council was given an updated report for Community Service. Trenda Papageorge was present to introduce herself to Council. She wants to join Crooksville Police Auxiliary. She is hoping to start schooling first of the year.
  11. Council went into Executive Session per ORC 121.22 (G) (2) for Real Estate.
