SPECIAL COUNCIL MEETING SET FOR MAY 26, 2016

A special council meeting has been set for Thursday, May 26, 2016 at 8:00 a.m. at Village Hall, 118 N. Main Street, Antwerp, Ohio 45813 for the purpose of passing an ordinance to allow the Fiscal Officer to enter into an agreement with Muirfield Energy to receive reduced energy costs over the next two years.

VILLAGE RECEIVES $100,000 PUBLIC SAFETY GRANT FOR NEW TANKER TRUCK

The Village of Antwerp has received notification that their application for a $100,000 public safety grant through the State of Ohio has been awarded.  Administrator Keeran had informed council that she had been made aware of a Safety Grant available by the State of Ohio and informed Fire Chief Ray Friend of the possibility of applying for the Tanker Truck that the fire department was looking for funding for.  An estimate for a new tanker was obtained by Chief Friend in the amount of $200,359.00.  As the tanker truck serves not only the Village but Carryall Township and part of Harrison Township, this looked like a good project to submit an application on.  This safety grant gives more weight on collaborative efforts.  Administrator Keeran stated the village will receive $100,000.00 and that Carryall Township has agreed to provide $17,000.00 per year for 10 years to assist in paying for the $100,359.00 match and assisting in providing financial support for the maintenance on the new tanker.

May 2016 Administrator’s Report

ADMINISTRATOR’S REPORT

May, 2016

 

SAFE ROUTES TO SCHOOL TO BE RE-BID:

The project only had one bid which came in at $161,000.00   This represents over $30,000.00 above the estimate.  ODOT rejected the bid and according to ODOT, they are contacting several contractors and getting input from them before they re-bid the project.  The project could be re-bid as early as this summer or as late as in the fall.  I will keep you up-to-date on their decision.

 

MINIMUM HOUSING STANDARDS:

The second reading of the Minimum Housing Standards ordinance will be read at council meeting.  The Public Service Committee will set a committee meeting to start to development a rental inspection component to the minimum housing standards so that rental property in the village are inspected to ensure tenants are renting a safe place.

This writer has a call into the City of Defiance to speak with their housing inspector about conducting our inspections.  I hope to have more information by Monday’s council meeting.

 

COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT BLOCK GRANT (CDBG) PROJECT SUBMITTED:

This writer submitted to Maumee Valley Planning Organization a CDBG application for funding of a new roof for the Fire Department.  We requested $20,000.00 in the form of a grant and if funded the project would go forward next year.  Our match would be approximately $11,900.00.  We should hear on whether or not our project was chosen by the County any day.

 

OSWALT LOTS:

The two lots the village owns on Oswalt Street have been advertised for sale.  Bids for the lots are due by Noon on Wednesday, June 8th, 2016 at town hall.

 

PUBLIC HEARING ON PROPOSED ZONING ORDINANCE AMENDMENT TO INCLUDE NEW BUSINESS DISTRICTS LANGUAGE AND ZONING MAP CHANGES IS TO BE HELD May 12, 2016:

I will report on the public hearing on the proposed zoning changes at Monday night’s council meeting.  If no adverse comments are received I would request that the zoning ordinances be passed.

 

PUBLIC SAFETY GRANT APPLCATION FOR TANKER TRUCK TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON:

The public safety grant application for the tanker truck that the village applied for is to be decided on May 19, 2016.  As soon as an announcement is made, this writer will inform council and the fire department on their decision.

 

S. MAIN STREET RAILROAD CROSSING TO BE REPLACED:

This writer contacted Pioneer-Railcorp about the condition of the Main Street Rail crossing.  The crossing seems to be sinking on the south side of the track.  Pioneer Railcorp is applying to the Ohio Rail Commission for funding.  The Village will commit up to $10,000 in State Highway Funds towards the project.  We should hear from the Rail Commission in the next week or two if the funding will be made available to Pioneer to replace this crossing.  The estimate on the project was figured to be $66,000.00 if the railroad supplies their own labor.

 

CHAMBER OF COMMERCE UPDATE:

The Chamber of Commerce recently elected their officers and board of directors in order to continue to be in existence for 2016.  The chamber has decided to go forward with Day in the Park on August 13th.  New members have joined in and volunteered to help plan the Day in the Park and fresh new ideas to revitalize the Chamber have been offered by the new members.  This is seen as a positive renewal.  Chamber is currently promoting Garage Sale Days in the Village which will be held on June 10th and 11th.  A map showing all the participating garage sale sites will be produced and made available throughout town.
