REGULARLY SCHEDULED COUNCIL MEETING
VILLAGE OF GRANVILLE
OCTOBER 6, 1982
CALL TO ORDER
Mayor Gallant called the meeting to order at 7: 30 p.m..
Responding to roll call were:
Vice Mayor -
Law Director -
Councilmember Miller moved to excuse absentee member Avery. Motion seconded by
Vice Mayor Davison. Motion carried.
Mrs. Nancy Sawyer, 94 Thornewood Drive, appeared to speak in opposition to
Ordinance No. 25-81. She was opposed to the spending of $5,000 on engineering
plans and felt that the money should be spent on the road.
Ms. Nancy Karlsberger, 372 Thornewood Drive also appeared to speak during the
public hearing. She asked if Council' s vote would be swayed if a majority of
the residents were against spending $5,000 on engineering.
Mayor Gallant responded and said Council would consider this, however, they
would also have to consider what would be in the best interest of the total
Village and its residents. He said if Council finds that a disproportionate amount of money is being expended to try and maintain Beechwood and Thornewood
Drives in their present condition then it would be unfair to the other residents in the Village in using that money in one location.
Continuing, Mayor Gallant said that members feel they cannot make a fair
decision until a professional study is made of the area so that what the cost might be, in order some idea of to present that cost to the residents.
It was the consensus of those members present that if the Ordinance is approved, the $5,000 spent on engineering would be consi dered part of the Village' s contribution if a decision to proceed with the road improvement is made.
The public hearing on Ordinance No. 25-82 closed at 8: 20 p.m.,following a lengthy question and answer session.
