Code Red Emergency Notification System
Worthington Police Chief Mosic made a presentation at the November Council meeting about the Code Red Emergency Notification System
. Worthington contracts with Code Red to provide the city with the ability to deliver emergency or important messages quickly to Worthington and Riverlea residents. This is done by text messages or phone calls. Residents are asked to register to make sure they are included.
Streets and sewers
The sanitary sewer project has been completed on schedule and the manhole lining has also been completed and passed inspection. The street and curb repair on Crescent is under way and Pioneers will be re-graded to correct standing water in front of a driveway.
Council noted the unique circumstances under which a homeowner on W. Southington had to replace the wye in the sanitary sewer line. Council agreed to make an exception and reimburse the homeowner for part of the costs incurred. The sewer project was underway and a delay could have resulted in additional costs and difficulties for the Village. Council decided to reimburse the homeowner $5,047.43, which included overtime costs.
