Public Forum on Annexation

June 20, 2011
7:30 pm; room 185, Thomas Worthington High School

Reflections on Riverlea

Annexation Commission. Our three Commissioners, Kirk McHugh, Scott Gordon and Eric MacGilvray, have done an outstanding job of representing all of us and working to get the best possible deal for Riverlea. Also doing an outstanding job was Bill Charles who came to discuss the street, curbs and infrastructure with the entire Commission. Worthington wants Riverlea, but they want us to pay. Please read Eric's article.

This is a time for all of us, irrespective of our views on annexation, to unite and come to the June 20 Council meeting. The meeting is planned to be short and will be followed by a forum in which residents may ask questions and voice their wishes on specific issues which are being negotiated. If Riverlea votes to annex to Worthington, there will be no opportunity to be Riverlea again. Therefore, it is most important that we get the proposal (which will be submitted to the voters) the way most of it want it. Please be present so that you will be fully informed as to what the issues are and what you will be voting on.

Jim Karnes. Riverlea shares with all of Franklin County the loss of a much loved Sheriff who had served for almost twenty years. He was never too busy to help.

July 4 picnic, 2:30 pm, on the Circle

The July 4 picnic will be held on Monday, July 4, at the Circle at 2:30 pm. Bring a dish to share, drinks, plates, silverware, and napkins. If any of you would like to volunteer, particularly with games, please contact Mary Jo Cusack, 846-4455, 880-0888, or 885-3567.

Public forum set for June 20, 2011

After a short Council meeting, the forum should start at about 7:30 pm; room 185, Thomas Worthington High School. The nearest entrance is on the east side of the school, just west of the McConnell Arts Center, rear parking lot. We hope that you can be there, and are of course happy to respond to any questions that you may have in the meantime.

Draft highlights from the May 18, 2011 Council meeting

Mayor: Thanked Carolee Noonan for handling the Bunny Hop and doing a great job. She also thanked Becky Bisenius and Chad Saucedo for donating the flags at the two front entrances and Jeff Colwell for installing the new flag brackets.

Riverlea will be a topic of discussion at the Worthington Council meeting May 18 and she will attend. The estate tax will be eliminated January 1, 2011 instead of in two years as previously stated if HB 3 passes. WOOSE sent a letter to newspapers stating that the OSU Airport runway is not needed and the Part 150 noise study was not properly completed per the FAA. There are additional issues with the airport that WOOSE is looking into.

Solicitor : Reported a pleading was prepared for the FCC regarding the radio station. Council has received a copy of it.

Planning Commissioner: Clerk-Treasurer reported for the Commissioner that in May there were two certificates of appropriateness approved. One was for a flagstone patio at 37 W. Southington and the other was for a picket fence at 250 W. Riverglen.

Marshal: Reported 280 checks with no citations or warnings. There have been some issues with sick raccoons in the Village. The police were notified and they shot the sick animals in case they had rabies. The disposal of a dead animal on public property was questioned. The Mayor will look into what to do on public property. Residents need to dispose of dead animals on their property. MacGilvray suggested that the residents need to be informed that animals not acting normally, such as nocturnal animals being out during the day, may be dangerous and children need to be educated to not touch them.

Street Commissioner: Reported a number of traffic cones are missing and need to be replaced. The Mayor expressed her concern that residents may be moving the cones between streets. Only the current Street Commissioner or the police should place or move the cones.

Expenses Street cleaning: The Mayor would like to see the streets cleaned prior to the July 4 picnic. Council wanted to see the costs first before authorizing. She will look into it for the next meeting.

Discussion on Worthington annexation: The Annexation Commission has met this past month. Street lights and sidewalks were discussed. Residents can vote to have either or Worthington Council can vote for either if certain conditions apply such as safety. The Mayor is concerned about citizens who feel the cut-through will go in after annexation. McHugh said Worthington will have to use eminent domain and they have not used that before. There is no guarantee that they won’t do it but it is unlikely in the near future.

Council will make sure residents are well aware of this before voting on annexation.

Adjournment 7:50 pm.
