November 2019 Administrator’s Report

ADMINISTRATOR’S REPORT

November 2019

 

  1. MAIN/E. CANAL WATERLINE PROJECT:

 

It is anticipated that the waterline project currently in progress on S. Main Street and E. Canal Street should be wrapped up.  The goal was to be completely done by November 15, 2019.  Weather in the last few days has not been the best, but the contractors worked right through most of it.  Customers on S. Main Street have been using the new waterline as of last week and paving of the excavated portions of the road has been completed.

 

The E. Canal portion is almost complete as of today, 11/12/19, with only a few borings to be completed until that section will be completed.  It is anticipated that the project will come in at the bid price even though there were more than a few complications discovered.  The contractors were very easy to work with and cleaned up their work site every night.

 

The undersigned was also able to contract with them to repair 3 catch basins on S. and N. Main and to repair the sinkhole in front of H & H Cleaners.  The hole discovered this late summer by H & H Cleaners was quite deep and was a section of storm line that needed to be replaced.  The contractors will seal the hole with concrete since this section gets heavy traffic from semis entering the elevator driveway.  This additional work is being paid for with the Village’s state highway allocation.

 

PAULDING COUNTY LAND BANK REQUESTED ADDITIONAL RESIDENCES AND COMMERCIAL STRUCTURES THAT THE VILLAGE WOULD LIKE TO SEE DEMOLISHED:

 

As reported at the October 2019 council meeting the Paulding County Land Bank, along with the Ohio Land Bank Association has been aggressively pursuing our state legislature to make available more funding to provide additional resources to the state’s land banks to deal with commercial and industrial blight that many older communities are plagued with.  In order to show the need, the Paulding County Land Bank requested all communities and townships to submit properties that they felt needed to be demolished.  The Village submitted 6 additional properties to the County.  The properties submitted may or may not end up with any funding at this time as they are only being used at this time to determine a total count to be considered by the State for more funding.  We will be kept informed by the County if they are successful in obtaining additional dollars.

 

SNOW REMOVAL:

 

Snow removal on village streets will be handled by Ben Kauser of Kauser Excavating for this season.  Residents are reminded to clear their sidewalks after snow events so no one falls and students who walk to school don’t have to walk in the road right-of-way.

 

 

 

 

MAUMEE RIVER TRAIL SIGNAGE FOR ALONG THE RIVER BANK TO BE INSTALLED:

 

As part of the promotion of the Maumee River Trail and kayak launch, the attached sign and post will be installed at the river bank so that kayakers and canoeists will know their location along the length of the trail.  Mark Greenwood’s business New American Real Company, LLC developed and made the post and arm and Flat Rock Concrete will install a base at the river bank.  It is hoped that this will still be able to be installed yet this year.

 

UPCOMING CHAMBER EVENTS:

 

Saturday, November 30th is Small Business Saturday.  The welcome center will be at the Subway and it will be manned from 9:00 a.m. to Noon that day.  Coupon specials, shopping bags, Scavenger Hunt and receipt raffles will all be at the Subway.  Shop your downtown every day, but Small Business Saturday is a must.

 

Monday, December 2nd, 2019 will be the 4th annual Christmas Tree Lighting event at Green Way park (next to town hall) beginning at 5:30 p.m.  The Antwerp Bank and the show choir will be performing as the tree is lighted.

 

Saturday, December 7th, 2019 Santa will be arriving at the fire station.  Kids are welcome to get their pictures taken with Santa and again there will be Shop with a Cop.  Kids can purchase an item for $5.00 for that special someone in their life.  Presents will be from our local businesses.
