Carl A. Frazier, Licking County Convention and Visitors Bureau Rick Bline, Granville Sentinel
Erle Richards
Mr. Frazier appeared this evening to give a report on the Licking County Con- vention &Visitors Bureau. He commented that at the reception building located on State Route 70, the Bureau has received 4,010 visitors representing 47 states, and 11 foreign countries. Mr. Frazier distributed among members several folders and pamphlets that are passed out to the visitors who stop by the reception building. In the Land of Legend folder Granville is mentioned three times -Denison University, Granville Downtown area, and the Robbins- Hunter Museum. The Lodging &Banquet Facilities folder as well as the Dining folder mention accomodations found in Granville. Mr. Frazier expressed how pleased he was that Granville was mentioned so many times. Continuing, Mr. Frazier said that the Bureau has received 6$0,792.00 and expended 46,720.00, in 13 months. The money comes from a hotelm/ otel bed tax, one- third of this money is returned to the municipality in which it is collected and two-thirds goes to the Bureau for operating expenses. Total membership in the Bureau is 12, representing the Township, City of Newark, Granville, and the rest from the Hotels and Restaurants in the County. Mr. Frazier said he would be happy to answer any questions members may have. Following a brief discussion, Mayor Gallant thanked Mr. Frazier for representing the Village of Granville.

of Bird &Bull, met with residents of the BeechwoodT/hornewood Association Tuesday, September 7th. He said at that meeting there was a good response to the type of plans proposed for the reconstruction of these drives, with the assumption that the road improvement would not cost more than $150,000. Manager Plunkett brought to Council' s attention the information packet in their folders. The information packet are copies of some materials that were passed out by Mr. Richards and Mrs. Blum at that meeting. Manager Plunkett said at the close of the meeting, the consensus was that he would ask Council for authorization to appropriate $5,000 to pay for the drafting of detailed plans of the reconstruction of Beechwood and Thornewood Drives. Mr. Plunkett added, that the Street Committee authorized him to go ahead and have Beechwood and Thornewood regraded, filled with gravel and steam rolled to get the drives through the winter.
Mr. Plunkett also gave a progress report on Wildwood Drive.
Mr. David Crook, 206 Thornewood Drive, appeared at this time to give Council his report on the Association' s meeting September 7th. Mr. Crook gave the Clerk a copy of this report for the records.

Utilities Committee
Manager Plunkett speaking for the Utilities Committee, gave an update report on the Pearl Street Sewer Replacement. He stated that the Village is very close to finalizing an agreement with Philip Skinner and Concrete Construction, on finishing the Pearl Street Sewer. Mr. Plunkett said he would like have a Special Meeting of Council if an agreement and contracts can be completed by tommorow. He said at that special meeting he would ask Council' s authoriza- tion to enter into an agreement with Concrete Constuction so they could start Monday. If this can not be accomplished by tomorrow, then a Special Meeting wtimoueldconeueldd to be called when an agreement is reached, so delays in start-up be minimized.
Mayor Gallant said a Special Meeting would have to be called right now if the meeting is to be conducted Thursday.
At 8:00 p.m.C, ouncilmember Miller moved that Council conduct a Special Meet- ing Thursday, September 16, 1982, at 8:00 p.m.t,o discuss legislation relat- Hingartroiottth.e MPeoatirolnStreet Sewer Project. Motion seconded by Councilmember carried.
During a brief question and answer session, Councilmember Avery asked Manager Plunkett if the report of Lester H. Poggemeyer, P.E.,Inc.,states that the sections of sewer layed at the slightly lower elevation will not have to be redone. Manager Plunkett comfirmed this and said that the report states that at the present elevation 580 housing units can be hooked up to that Pearl St., intercepter, before the section between Elm Street and the alley south of there will need to be rea+yed at a higher elevation. A-Lillie
Mayor Gallant asked if it would be possible at some later time when that capacity is reached to correct these sections? Manager Plunkett responded and said that only these two sections would have to be replaced and by doing so the Village could double their capacity. Members asked if the engineer was recommending that the Village proceed with the job on Pearl Street as is. MVailnlaaggeer Plunkett responded that the engineering firm was recommeding that the proceed with the project.

TO THE COUNCIL:
At the last Granville Village Council meeting, committee members of the
Beechwood/ Thornewood Residents Association advised Council of the status
of our investigations. We promised Council that we would survey residents
for an expression of their attitude regarding street improvements. A
swmary of the committee findings was prepared and hand- delivered to each
Village resident with homes on Beechwood and/or Thornewood. A copy of
that summary (attached as Exhibit "A")was reviewed by Carolyn Blum,
President of the Association, and Doug Plunkett, who noted the following
exceptions:
1. Reference made to a 15- year assessment is incorrect.
This information is being corrected and residents
will be advised that this is a 10- year pay- off plan.
2. Reference to a 10y-ear maintenancefr-ee road is
erroneously stated and will also be corrected to the
residents. The Engineer actually referred to a road
design to be capable of sustaining run- off from the
10- year storm concept. The Engineer also referred to
the road design as a 10-year life span like Wildwood.
We are enclosing Exhibit "B"which is copies of the return. The results of the survey are:
11 residents for the improvements
5 residents against improvements
1 vacate residence
3 residents not available for response
A summary of domments that were included with the return follows:

Comment
Not a sound design
Too expensive
Suggests closing Thornewood to through traffic
Investigation of alternatives by the Association has raised questions
regarding other practices which we wish investigated such as a new concept
recently tested of a thin asphalt " over a solid bed and covered by chip
and seal".
If Council authorizes the engineering study, the Association for Beechwood/
Thornewood residents requests close coordination with the Village Manager
and the engineering firm for assurance of participation in planning, design
and cost control.
We appreciate Council' s c6ntinued interest in this problem. We also request
that this letter be incorporated into the Village Council meeting record.

EXHIBIT- A
As residents of Beechwood and Thornewood we have each been concerned with the lack of
maintenance to our roads. Beyond the danger of inaccessibility for emergency vehicles
during the worst of conditions is the possibility of accidents, the wear and tear on
our vehicles and depreciation of our property. The neighborhood meetings we have held in
the past to discuss the problem resulted in the forming of the BeechwoodT-hornewood
Association. The officers that were elected have met with the Village Manager and spoken
with the Village Council. We have met on two occasions with the engineer for the firm
hired by the village to evaluate the road status. We have followed carefully the
engineering and work performance on Wildwood Avenue where the conditions closely paralleled
our problems. On Tuesday, September 7th we met with Doug Plunket4 our Village Manager,
and Jerry Turner, the Engineer and also Vice- Chairman for Bird and Bull Ltd.,consulting
ingineers and surveyors. This is the firm hired by the village to evaluate our roads.
We feel it is time to report to the residents and present our findings, evaluations, and
recommendations.
1. Jerry Turner has recommended that an in-depth engineering study be made
including soil studies, ground survey and detailed plans and specifications.
The result of this study would provide documents for bidding by contractors
and a more accurate engineer' s estimate of cost. The project could then be
advertised for bids.
2. Mr. Turner' s preliminary engineering estimate prepared for the village in
May 1982 amounted to $98,000 with 2"blacktop or $113, 000 with a 3"blacktop.
This estimate included:
Reworking ditches
Replacing culverts
Storm sewers &inlets
14,000
11,000
32,000
Estimate (Cont' d)
Pavement (20 foot width)
3" $47,000
2" 32, 000
1" 15,000
Engineering plans and specifications and resident
representative during construction 9,000
The engineer usually offers a preliminary estimate and then an estimate after
the detailed study which is based on actual conditions found. The job is then
advertised for competitive bid. In the case of Wildwood, his preliminary
estimate was 10%below the final engineer' s estimate. The competitive bid
which was accepted was 3%below the final estimate. '
3. In addition to this estimate, the Village Manager estimated an additional
20,000 to $30,000 expense for legal fees, auditors fees and interest expense.
The construction would closely approximate the design and construction performed on
Wildwood. If you have not examined this proj ect, we recommend that you take the time to
at least drive through.
The engineering firm assures us that the results would provide a maintenance free road for
10 years. The Village Manager advised us that any maintenance would be the responsibility
of the village. Let us remind you now that "maintenance free"requires each resident to
keep ditches clean (call the Village Manager if they fail to pick up leaves in the fall),
keep culverts clear and report any erosion that could grow.
Page 2
Page 3
On the other hand, if we fail to act now, we may find that village maintenance will not
improve and in fact with rising. costs and village revenues shrinking, the conditions could
worsen.
A few points of interest
If we proceed with the proj ect, the village has expressed a willingness to
contribute to the cost since there is a feeling of responsibility for failure
to provide adequate maintenance. Mayor Tom Gallant *aid he would support a
25,000 cost contribution. This was stated to council and no objection was
raised. On the basis that Wildwood received a similar amount for less than
one third of the lineal footage on Beechwood/ Thornewood, we would ask for a
larger contribution based on a similar rate sharing of responsibility.
The question regarding cost assessment has been raised with regard to township
residents living on Thornewood and Beechwood, as well,:as township residents that
would benefit by the improvement such as Edgewood property owners. We asked for
a legal opinion from a noted firm in Columbus. Their response is attached.
If the residents are in favor of the improvements, we will ask council to have
the village attorney pursue the question of negotiating with the township for
an assessment to share in the cost distribution addressed in the third paragraph
of our attorney' s response.
If the project is authorized by council, the council would stipulate how the
residents would be assessed; either by property owner, by lineal foot or by
percentage on the basis of benefit derived. Residents would have an opportunity
to express any protests to council and if sufficient grounds were offered for
reconsideration of the assessment made, council would appoint an Assessment
Equalization Board,made up of village residents who had no personal involvement,
to hear all complaints. If their resolution was not satisfactory to council, a
new board would be formed, etc. Keep in mind that the Village Council does have
the authority to authorize the improvements and then assess the costs to property
owners at their discretion without the owner' s approval. It is our observation
Page 4
that this council does not appear inclined in that direction. There is nothing
to stop future village councils, however, from balking at rising costs and
using their authority to relieve the village of what they determine to be
unusual expense by taking that action.
The engineering study, soil samples and drawings for construction is performed
for a fee of $5,000. The Village Manager has recommended the appropriation to
council and will make the formal request Wednesday, September 15th. If it is
approved, Jerry Turner has assured us that he and his employees will be on the
site to examine the requirements and to discuss with the residents unique
problems affecting their property with relation to grade, right of way, contouring,
tiering driveways into road elevation, etc. We are assured that Wildwood
residents had the opportunity to utilize their services as well as the
construction company for a harmonious blending of landscape to road/ditch.
To give some perspective to costs of the improvement, let us presume some data:
Project Cost 150,000 The engineer' s estimate of the highest
cost if soil samples indicate requirement for
road bed improvements.
Village Contribution - 37, 500 A hypothetical figure based on 25%contribution
to Wildwood construction.
112,500 Resident' s cost
5 20 Village homeowners living on Beechwood &
Thornewood
5,600 Per resident which could be expensed over
a period of up to 15 years plus interest
This illustration is not to be misconstrued as a valid estimate. The final costs
will be determined by the engineering study, the economics of the period the job
is advertised for bid, council' s decision on apportionment and council' s contribution.
Page 5
Since $5,000 is a significant sum for the village to spend, we want to express to council
the views of the residents. We would like a response from each resident with regard to
their views. In other words, are you for the improvement with the related cost or are
you against it. Please complete the form attached and leave it with Carolyn Blum,
263 Beechwood; Audrey Wagner, 112 Beechwood; or Dave Crook, 206 Thornewood by Monday
evening. We want to be able to tabulate and present the results to council on Wednesday
evening.
If you prefer, we will have representatives of our association available Sunday afternoon
between 2: 00 and 2:30 P.M. at the Blum home, 263 Beechwood to answer questions. You may
also drop off your responses at that time.
We would appreciate 100%response so we may speak for everyone involved.
Your Committee,
Carolyn Blum

Dear Charles:
COLUMBUS, OHIO 43215
614) 224-6262
July 21, 1982
The question posed is whether the Village of Granville, an incorporated
municipality, can assess residents of a contiguous town- ship for street improvement that benefits residents of the Village and Township equally.
Our research leads us to the conclusion that the Village cannot assess residents of the Township. The Ohio statute governing assess- ments (ORC, Section 727. 01 ( ing and interpreting the copy enclosed)a)nd the case law apply- the municipal corporationstatute suggest that only property within may be assessed. The cases analogize the
power to tax and the power to assess and hold that taxes and assess- ments are synonomous, both being levied by virtue of the soverign power of the state for public good. Therefore, because a municipal corporation does not have the power to tax nonresidents, it does not have the power to assess nonresidents.
With this information in mind, what can you do? I see two pos- sible remedies. First, Section 727 allows two contiguous and adjacent municipalities or government entities to agree to split, in some agreed upon and equitable manner, the assessed cost of road repair. The important point to remember is that the two government bodies mdeunstts aginree to share the expense and must agree to assess their resi- an equitable fashion. One government body cannot unilater- ally force the other to share the burden. Such negotiations, by their nature, are time consuming and costly. We would be willing to represent your interest in such negotiations, but the legal services would be expensive. You should keep in mind that in my opinion it is, the duty of the Village of Granville, through its city attorney, btoehnaelfgowtiiathtethtehisTorwenmsheipd.y i(f you choose to go this route) on your The second remedy is riskier.

The validity of special assessments, means and actual increase in
money value, and a potential or actual or added use and enjoyment
of the property. An objection to assessment might work if the
assessment exceeds the benefit received; the assessment would con-
Stitute a taking of property for public use without sufficient
compensation. This tactic is risky because courts in Ohio have
held that the amount in excess of the benefit must be substantial
in order for one to have a remedy. The party assessed and objecting
to the assessment will always be on the defensive.
With this information in hand, I suggest you make an appointment
with your city attorney or solicitor and see what he thinks.
