COMMITTEE REPORTS
Recreation Commission -Councilmember Eisenberg reported on the Commission' s meeting of April 3, 1984. Reporting on a number of items he felt would be of general interest to Council, and to the public at large, Mr. Eisenberg began his report with Wildwood Park. The Commission has ordered the large piece of playground equipment, and the Granville Jaycees have volunteered to do the installation. No activity on the future soccer field due to the continuous rain recently, and; the bike path construction is proceeding nicely. On behalf of. the Recreation Commission, Mr.E.isenberg gratefully acknowledged the new bushes recently installed at Wildwood Park by the Village.
On another note, Mr. Eisenberg stated that the most pressing matter for the Recrelon,Commission at this time, is the fact that the Gemmuni..:ty 4enteri/T-78tLe9#447 flosingE F*b-*ui*lding and must vacate by May 1st of this year. A concept has 0-* 6 ' 710 been raised for a permanent community center or a multi-purpose facility to be shared by some of the other governmental bodies, but at this point remains to be just a dream. Mr. Eisenberg stressed strongly, that the Recreation Commission needs space immediately for the various functions they operate, a place for their meetings, and; storage space for the large equipment: pool table, air hockey games, and the foosball game. In conclusion, Mr. Eisenberg asked the media present this evening if they would publicize for the Recreation Commission the need for space, and; if any citizens have suggestions as to how these problems might be resolved, to con- tact either Rodney or Debby McPeek, Directors of the Recreation Commission.

Revised Wastewater Rates
Manager Plunkett briefly explained that Council has three possible methods by which to adjust wastewater rates to fund the local share of the new Wastewater Treatment Facility. He recommended that Council schedule a public hearing on the proposed changes in sewer rates to provide information and give the public tahnaot pportunity to ask questions and voice concerns. Mr. Plunkett commented this was not a legal requirement, but felt a public hearing would be in order.

BeechwoodT/hornewood Drives Update
Manager Plunkett at this time gave an updated report on the current status of the proposed Beechwood and Thornewood Drives Improvement Project. He also
explained the "Resolution of Necessity" that Council has before them this
evening. In addition, a way was found within the law to allow this road improvement to be levied over a twenty year period as opposed to a ten year period.
Manager Plunkett mentioned that Jerry Turner, Design Engineer, of the
firm C. F. Bird &R. J. Bull, Ltd.w,as present this evening to answer any questions citizens or members of Council might have with regards to this pro- ject.
In conclusion, Manager Plunkett explained the mechanics of how the proposed road improvement would be constructed.
During an interim discussion, it was pointed out that the Village plans to contribute $46,000, to this project which is now'estimated to cost $289,000. Also, that property owners would have the opportunity to pay the entire cost of their assessment and avoid any interest charges, if paid within thirty days of the completion of the project and the certification and acceptance by Council.

The following citizens raised questions and voiced concerns with regards to the proposed road improvement:

Wsohaftt equipment is the Village planning to purchase to maintain the culverts and spots in the road?
A concern that not only will the residents be assessed for the road improvement but, ongoing maintenance as well.

How much more water will the property located at the bottom of Thornewood Drive4 :, get after the ditches and drains have been reworked?
Will the ditches be paved or sodded?
What was Council 's recommendation or suggestion to the County Commissioners with ' : regard to abutting township residents helping with a portion of the financial h
obligation of the road improvement and did Council ask that the Edgewood residents help as well?
What is the Village doing right now to make these two roads a safe highway, and what can be done now to make the roads more passable?

Responses to. residents quest-ions and concerns were as. follows:
If bids for the road improvement project go over 10%of the estimated coht, Village must reject the bids. However, the engineer' s estimate includes a substantial contingency and should not go over.
Assessments are being determined by the assessor, who is Burgess &Niple, Ltd.. When these figures are known,the Village will notify Village residents and the County Commissioners will notify their people of a public hearing and the amount mofeththoed.ir assessment. Assessments are being determined by the benefit conferred
The 1$1,765 proposed to update and improve the water lines in the Beechwood/ Thornewood area will not be part of the $46,000.
With regards to the road improvement holding up for twenty years, response to this was that with proper maintenance there is no reason the road shouldn' t hold up.
The Village will maintain the new road to the best of its ability, and with tinhveesctomoepnert.ative help of the residents, both will be able to protect their
As to equipment, the Village is planning to purchase a sewer jet truck to clean out sewers. This piece of equipment can also be used to clean out storm drains. With regard to soft spots in the roads surface, and berms needing repaired, the Village has the kind of equipment to take care of these items.

With regard tocontrollingsurface water coming down the roads, the road will be crowned in the center, and additional drains will be installed. The plan is to pick the water up and move it out and away from the roadways.
With regard to continuing Thornewood, from a safety point of view, the road would be too long to make a dead end road, making it impossible for a fire atrufcirketotrubcakcktodown. A cul-de-sac was considered, but again not enough room for turn around.

As to the ditches being paved or sodded, most of them will be sodded a few will be concrete paved where they go around a radius.
When Council met with the County Commissioners, they made no recommendations
as to the amount of financial help. Council did ask for help from the County Commissioners, residents of Edgewood Drive and abutting property owners on Thornewood. With those people participating in the improvement project, the pro- portionate amount is then determined by the Assessor, Burgess &Niple, Ltd., by the benefit conferred method.
However, the County Commissioners declined to help, and they declined to assess the residents on Edgewood.
It was mentioned at the meeting with the County Commissioners that the Village assisted the County in providing water to Alexandria.
With regard to current maintenance to these roads, the Village did install approximately 1500 feet of storm sewer pipe in this area last fall. Also, twice the Village has spread #4 gravel on these roads this year. The Village has ntootaaskskethdemtheinTtohwenship if they will grade these roads as yet, but are planning near future.
With no further questions or responses.made, Mayor Gallant commented that Council has tried to respond to citizens questions and concerns expressed as honestly as they can or in the best way that they can, not being able to guarantee certain factual kinds of promises etc..Mr. Gallant said Council does appreciate the willingness of people to come and discuss the matter with them.
No other old business was considered at this time.

I was contacted by Bill Rickrich, who is the Village Solicitor for Alexandria. Their Council is required by our water contract with them to post
a bond to secure the payment of their billings. The Alexandria Council is
looking toward ways to save money (aren' t we all) and Bill asked me to put before our Council the possibility of reducing or eliminating the bond. consider I the appropriate way for me to do this is to report the question to you.
