September 2019 Administrator’s Report

ADMINISTRATOR’S REPORT

September 2019

 

DRAINAGE IMPROVEMENT PROJECT AT PARK:

 

The drainage project at Riverside Park is completed and the final cost stayed within the budget.   5 catch basins and 360 feet of 10” storm line were installed around the playground and pavilion structures.  The company did an excellent job and you’d never know they dug the whole place up.  Just a great company to work with and they completed the job in 3 days.  This should greatly improve the accessibility of the playground during the wet Spring months.  Again this was accomplished with block grant funds through the Paulding County Commissioner’s Office.

 

EAGLE SCOUT PROJECT AT THE PARK COMPLETED:

 

David Garmater from Troop 143 of Antwerp had approached the Village about doing his Eagle Scout project in Riverside Park.  David placed a permanent picnic table and installed one of the Village’s newly purchased charcoal grills at the bottom of the stairway that leads to the river.  He was able to use concrete slabs recently removed by the Antwerp Rotary from the former memorial site at the park around the table and grill.  Councilperson Jan Reeb attended the dedication and the scouts initiated the grill.  It is really a nice addition to the park.  I would encourage everyone to use it, the scenery is beautiful in the river bottom.

 

MAUMEE LANDING SUBMITS THE FINAL PLAT TO THE VILLAGE FOR APPROVAL:

 

Oley McMichael has sold another lot in Maumee Landing and has submitted the final plat to the village.  Phase 7 includes lot 23 and the planning commission members were contacted and gave their approval.  An Ordinance and the final plat will be presented Monday night for approval.

 

EPA’S WATER PLANT VISIT ON SEPTEMBER 5, 2019:

 

The Bowling Green District Office Ohio EPA inspected the Village’s water system on September 5, 2019.

The new improvements recently completed to the filter building and clear well was reviewed along with the high service pump building and all of the wells.  She did not note any violations to myself or Curtis but will have recommendations on some upgrades that she feels we need to the high service pumps.  We also agreed that next year improvements need to be made to the piping and pumps as the existing pumps have outlived their useful life.

 

Of course, until we receive the report of her visit we won’t know what our timeline will be to accomplish her recommendations.  She did request all our documentation that she ask for to be scanned and sent to her which will require at least a day or two to accomplish.  But overall, this visit was a vast improvement over the 2016 visit.  She felt we had accomplished a lot and I gave credit to our operator Curtis Nestleroad and other utility workers for doing a great job running the plant.

 

 

 

COMPOST SITE OFFICIALLY CLOSED AND TRANSFER SITE OPENED:

 

The compost site has been officially closed and removed for oversite by EPA.  All material has been chipped and removed from the site.  New signage has been posted and as far as the general public, nothing will change on what they can bring out to the site.  We would ask that residents bringing limbs and leaves out drop these materials inside of the staked area and not to leave plastic bags, cardboard or any type of garbage at the site.

 

The guidelines for having a transfer site is that the material must be removed from the site at least once a year.   Publication of the site re-opening has been placed on the Village’s website, villageofantwerp.com, on the Village’s Facebook page and will be published in the West Bend News.  We will attempt to have the site open continuously with the exception of wet weather and winter months.  Again, if a winter storm has caused limbs and branches to fall, we will open to accept those.  Again logs and branches over 3” in diameter will not be taken as they cannot be chipped.  This site is only for the benefit of the Village of Antwerp residents as they are the ones paying for it.

 

FIRST READING ON LETTING BIDS FOR GARBAGE COLLECTION:

 

The first of three readings will be read at Monday nights meeting to start the process to continue village-wide garbage collection.  An ordinance will be included in your packets.  Utility committee will schedule a meeting to discuss limiting bulky waste pick-up items to be included in the next contract.

August 2019 Administrator’s Report

ADMINISTRATOR’S REPORT

AUGUST, 2019

 

  1. MAIN STREET/E. CANAL STREET WATERLINE IMPROVEMENT PROJECT:

 

A pre-construction meeting was held with Bryan Excavating, LLC on August 1, 2019, on the waterline project.  The total project cost is estimated to be $305,000.00 which includes the section of S. Main Street waterline from Daggett to Canal and from E. Canal at S. Erie to Water Plant Drive.  It is anticipated that construction will start the first week in October with substantial completion set for November 15, 2019, and close out by December 13, 2019, weather permitting.

 

DRAINAGE IMPROVEMENT PROJECT AT PARK:

 

A pre-construction meeting was held with B. Hill’z Excavating of Wayne, Ohio on July 25, 2019, on the drainage project at Riverside Park.  The project contract is for $24,590.00.  5 catch basins and 360 feet of 10” storm line will be installed around the playground and pavilion structures.  It is anticipated construction should start the third or fourth week of August and be completed, weather permitting by September 20, 2019.

 

EPA HAS SCHEDULED A WATER PLANT VISIT ON SEPTEMBER 5, 2019:

 

The Bowling Green District Office Ohio EPA has notified this writer that they will be inspecting the Village’s water system on September 5, 2019.   These inspections are normally scheduled every 3 to 5 years and encompasses every aspect of the operation of the water system.  As you recall the last visit in 2016 resulted in the water plant improvements that were required by EPA.

 

One requirement was the development of a water asset management plan which the Village has had completed with the assistance of Poggemeyer Design Group. This plan was noted by EPA to be reviewed during their September visit.

 

The water tower tank was inspected by Nelson Tanks of Lansing, Michigan on August 1, 2019, this is also a requirement of EPA and that report should be available to the Village and EPA before the September 5th visit.  A robotic submarine type vessel was able to inspect the inside of the tank without requiring the tank to be completely drained.  Pictures were taken of the inside and out of the tank, and it has been noted by Nelson that their recommendation will be that the tank be painted in the next few years and that a few corrosive spots were noted on the interior of the tank.  Until the formal report is received, this writer is unsure of all recommendations, but it appears the tank, put into service in 2007, is in good shape.

 

Both this writer and water operator Curtis Nestleroad are gathering all reports and records noted by our EPA representative that they will want to inspect on September 5th.

 

 

 

 

BUS BARN APPRAISAL WAS RECEIVED:

 

I received the appraisal on the bus barn from Northwest Appraisal Company of Defiance, Ohio.  The appraised value was noted as $35,000.00.  I would ask that council make a decision whether we can go forward with the advertisement for the sale of the building.  I would also like to have discussion on if we can use the proceeds from the sale to construct a pole barn to house village property used by the water and sewer plant.

 

ORDINANCE ON AMENDING AGREEMENT WITH NAZARENE CHURCH TO EXTEND LAND DONATION TIMELINE:

 

In negotiations with the Community Church/Advisory Board, Northwestern Ohio District Church of the Nazarene to grant an additional 3 years to develop the roadway and infrastructure improvements to the optioned land currently held by the Village of Antwerp.  The original agreement called for the land donated to the Village to be developed within 7 years of the date of land conveyance which was recorded on June 7, 2013.  Without an extension of the original donation, the property is to go back to the church in 2020.  In order to accept this additional 3 years, an ordinance needs to be passed to allow the Mayor to entered into an amended donation agreement and also sign the General Warranty Deed.  The Antwerp Community Improvement Corporation has been working to put in place requirements to extend this ownership of this land along with an amended TIF (Tax Increment Financing) agreement so they can apply for funding to get a road and water and sewer to the optioned property.  More discussion will be held with council on the structure of how the Village and CIC can work together to get this done as the CIC gets all required documents developed.
