The Council of the Village of Riverlea met on the above date at 275 West Southington Avenue, Worthington. The following Council members were present: Mayor Kirk M. McHugh, Jon L. Ankrom, Donald E.

Charles, Street Commissioner, and Jim Dippel, Burgess & Niple. At 8:00 pm the Mayor called the meeting to order.
The OPWC application can be prepared by B&N at a cost of approximately $10,000. However, the Village can save over $3,000 if they completed parts of it. Dippel said he would provide copies of submitted applications for reference and would assist us. After some discussion, the Mayor and Council agreed that the savings was significant for the Village to prepare part of the application and felt it was worth the effort to do so. The application is due September 17, 2012.
The CDBG application consists of much of the information that will be provided in the OPWC application, except for an environmental report. The Village should be able to complete most of the application and B&N can provide the environmental report for about $3,800. The application is due around the end of October 2012.Ankrom moved and MacGilvray seconded the motion to authorize the expenditure of up to $14,000 for Burgess & Niple’s assistance with the preparation of the OPWC and CDBG applications. The motion was approved unanimously (5-0).
