ADMINISTRATOR’S REPORT

OCTOBER, 2020

 

MIGHTY CUBE STORAGE CONTAINER PUBLIC HEARING HELD SEPTEMBER 25, 2020:

 

The public hearing to receive comments on the proposed zoning amendment of Section 905 regarding portable storage containers was held at Noon at the Depot on September 25, 2020.  No adverse comments or public participation were received so the resolution to approve the amendment will be presented at the October 19th council meeting.

 

  1. WASHINGTON STREET WATERLINE PROJECT NOT FUNDED:

 

The waterline project submitted for Ohio Public Works Funding was not approved for funding.  In this project, the Village requested 75% grant funding and 25% of the project would have been a loan.  It did not receive enough points to be funded.  I am assuming the request for more grant money killed the request.

 

POTENTIAL STORM LINE PROJECT:

 

The utility department is looking at the area in the former canal bed between Cleveland, east to S. Erie Street as a potential storm line replacement.  The clay tile in the area is full of mud and debris and can not be jetted.  Several attempts have been made to no success. There has been water held in the canal all during the Spring and it is probably caused by broken tile.  An estimate is being determined and if possible the village will install new storm line and catch basins to relieve the flooding in this area.  There is a 36” storm line that the new line can hook into on the east end near Erie Street.
