Reports of Officials

08-29

The Mayor reported that the OSU Airport Part 150 study is using some inaccurate information. The OSU Airport is having an open house regarding the Part 150 Study on April 24, 2008 and she urged everyone to attend. She has the new yard signs for the Planning Commission to post regarding hearings about Certificates of Appropriateness and Variances. The Mayor stated she is concerned about the potholes and has asked the Street Commissioner to get them repaired. The trash and excessive toys scattered on the lawn at the apartments on the south side of Riverglen are becoming a problem. She has received complaints from residents so she called the owner and asked if he would try to help. Both were cleaned up and it appears an effort is being made to keep it that way. After finding out that Riverlea and Worthington were combined at the voting precinct last March, the Mayor called the Board of Elections for an explanation. The Board of Elections said that the electronic voting machines use the addresses entered when voting to have the correct ballot. Riverlea will no longer have their own machines. The Mayor has received complaints from a resident regarding the tall trees that are used as a hedge between her property and her neighbors. Since the trees have been there for many years, the Mayor toldl the resident that it is not a matter for Council. The Mayor will be seeking landscaping bids from Pharazyn, Arnholt and A Finer Cut.

Zenisek brought up the subject about solicitation permits. Mershon said one was needed if they were allowed to solicit per the Village’s ordinances and that the Clerk-Treasurer was the one to give the permit. Zenisek also discussed dead animal removal. Schaer will provide the Newsletter Editor with the information for dead animal removal to include in the Newsletter.

The Solicitor reported that the existing cable franchise agreements have terminated last year and will now operate under a statewide cable franchise. The Village will need to adopt an ordinance if fees are to be collected. He also encouraged everyone to attend the OSU Airport Open House April 24th or go to www.osuairportpart150.org.

The Planning Commissioner reported they had a meeting March 14, 2008 regarding Certificates of Appropriateness for Bruck and Unrue. Both were approved. Also the Planning Committee was glad to welcome their two new members, Lisa Morris and Bryce Jacob.

In the absence of the Web Manager, Michael Jones gave the report to say thanks for having the Council meeting agenda ready early and that it was posted by Friday. Also, the new Council members and Clerk-Treasurer are now on the Web site.

The Marshall could not attend but the Mayor said the police report was routine.

The Street Commissioner reported that the City of Columbus was inspecting the Village’s storm sewers. No notice was given that they were coming and he has never known them to come before. He gave the report of the Street Committee that some curbs needed to be repaired, the potholes filled and the streets resurfaced.

The Newsletter Editor requested copy for the May Newsletter by May 5th.

There was no report from Parks and Recreation.
