Manager Plunkett responded and said the Village shares their concerns about the
traffic on College Street. He said the Village has an active Police Department,
unfortunately,they cannot patrol any given area 24 hours a day. When they do patrol this street everyone seems to be obeying the law.
A discussion followed between Council members, citizens and Manager Plunkett.
During discussion it was suggested that the Manager might check on a better
light synchronization for Broadway so motorists wouldn' t detour to side streets
to avoid the lights on Broadway. Mr. Plunkett said the Village wouldn' t want
to speed up traffic on Broadway, causing perhaps more problems.
Following discussion the Manager was directed to look into "slow children"
signs for the problem area, and request the Chief of Police officers to have the patrol give special attention to that area for a while.
Council thanked Ms. McCrave and Mr. Carragee for attending the meeting and expressing their concerns.

NEW BUSINESS
Manager Plunkett reported that Mrs. Nancy Burdick expressed a concern today about the Village creating a pollution problem behind the Waste Water Plant. Mrs. Burdick claims that people are dumping their trash behind there because the Village is dumping their brush there without chipping. Mr. Plunkett said there is about three months of chipping stored on the 19 acres, and the Village does not have the manpower to do this right now. He said it would take two men to do the chipping. Mr. Plunkett said that the Granville Kiwanis are looking for about 14/ acre to rent so they can put up a building to store 4th of July items such as the

bandstand etc.. He said perhaps they would be willing to chip the Village' brush in place of rent. s
A brief discussion followed among members of Council and the Village Manager. There were no objections raised to renting a portion of the land to the Granville
Kiwanis but members expressed concern about the liability of someone other than
Village employees using Village equipment and chipping the brush for rent.
Law Director Drake mentioned that if the land was rented to the Kiwanis it would
have to be something other than a cash donation if the Village was to retain their tax exemption status for that property.
Council asked Mr. Drake to get a legal opinion as to the liability for chip- mpienngt. the brush with someone other than Village employees and using Village equip-
