Report of the Mayor

The Mayor reported that Schaer is working on the storm water plan and that MORPC has a working storm water plan that could be adopted by the Village. Jack will review MORPC’s plan and report back to Council on it. The Mayor reported FEMA had a meeting regarding snow cost recovery and that Sharon Township went on our behalf and will share the funds with us. The OSU Airport situation has not changed and they are still seeking comments from residents. Only two landscaping bids were received (Arnholt Group and Jill Wiebell) and Pharazyn replied they would not bid. There was some discussion about the different services for the Village’s landscape maintenance. Zenisek wanted one service to take care of the trees, lawn and sprinkler system. Tettenhorst thought three different services would provide better care. The Mayor and Council thanked Diane Hitt and Suzanne White for pulling weeds and Ted Beegle for mowing the grass on the circle two times.

Report of the Solicitor

The Solicitor suggested that the Village instigate a record retention policy. He will review past records to see who was on the Record Retention Commission and bring that information to the next Council meeting. He also suggested that the Village did not need both the Mayor and Solicitor to attend the OSU Airport meetings. McHugh moved and Schaer seconded a motion to have only the Mayor represent the Village at the OSU Airport meetings. The following vote was recorded on the motion: Yea, 6; McAlearney, McHugh, Schaer, Shannon, Tettenhorst and Zenisek: Nay, None. The Motion carried 6-0.

Report of the Planning Commissioner

In the absence of the Planning Commissioner, Jody Croley Jones gave his report. John Woods applied for a Variance and Certificate of Appropriateness for a fence and patio at the rear of his residence and it was approved.

Report of the Marshall

The Marshall reported that there were 277 patrol checks with no warnings or citations. A resident complained about vehicles not stopping at the stop signs at Southington Ave. and Pioneers CT. He will contact the Worthington Police regarding this and also discuss with them about the problem of residents illegally blocking streets.

Report of the Street Commissioner

The Street Commissioner reported that the sewers will be cleaned soon. He discussed the possibility of illuminating the Flag on the circle with solar lighting and will look into it to report at the next meeting. The streets were patched for only $640 instead of the quoted $800. The cost of paving by Franklin County will be between $8-$10/yard but not all of the streets will need to be paved. The streets running north and south do not get as much traffic and are, therefore, in better shape. He will proceed with the curb repair but needed time to inform residents that they can pay to have their driveway apron replaced at the same time for $12/sq.ft. He suggested the use of the website and newsletter to get the word out to residents so they could submit their names, etc. so the company repairing the curbs could contact them directly for details and payment. The Village will not be responsible for the repair or replacement of driveway aprons.

Report of the Newsletter Editor

In the absence of the Newsletter Editor, Shannon requested copy for the June Newsletter by June 5th.

Report of the Web Manager

The Web Manager reported that there is a link on the website for the storm water plan and the problem with the link to the American Legal Publishing is not the Village’s website’s fault. She stated that the renewal for the two domain names, Riverlea.com and Riverlea.org, are due. It’s $14.99 per year per domain name and we can renew for up to nine years in advance. She will also put a form on the website for the driveway aprons that can be emailed to the curb company.

Report of Parks and Recreation

The Mayor will let Pat Anderson know she has Council’s permission to order the tent, tables and chairs for the July 4th picnic. McHugh suggested having hotdogs and hamburgers this year for the July 4th picnic and Council agreed. He will try to determine the amount needed and have that information for the next Council meeting.
