COMMITTEE REPORTS
Ways &Means -Manager Plunkett introduced Don Wiper, Bond Counsel, of Squire,
Sanders &Dempsey, and Joe Magdich, Financial Advisor, of Seasongood &Mayer.
Mr. Plunkett then turned the discussion over to Mr. Wiper, who explained Council to facts they needed to be aware of regarding the Village' s Sewer System Financing. Using a chart devised by Squire, Sanders &Dempsey, Mr. Wiper
explained in detail the financial plan for the Village' s Wastewater Facility
Improvement. Mr. Wiper further explained that the time frame to pass the
necessary legislation for the Revenue Bonds, Temporary Bonds, and User Charges,
will be very tight. This is because the law prohibits a franchise to be passed
as an emergency measure. Therefore, it will be necessary to schedule two special meetings. Mr. Wiper suggested May 9th and May 23rd as special meetings for the
purpoase of introducing and passing the needed legislation for this matter. Mr. Magdich then stated in brief, the financing plan proposed by his firm. Seasongood &Mayer will buy Granville' s bonds, then resell them. The draw schedule will accommodate payments to the contractors and EPA reimbursements.
Following a lengthy question and answer session, Mayor Gallant thanked Mr. Wiper and Mr. Magdich for coming to the meeting and for their explanations. A
copy of Mr. Wiper' s chart is hereby attached as part of these minutes.
Opera House Park -Manager Plunkett reported that the Village received two bids
on the second bidding of the brick walkways for the park. Both bids exceeded the amount budgeted for that project. Mr. Plunkett asked Council for some direction on the matter.
Discussion among members and Manager Plunkett centered on alternate types of walkways for the park. It was the consensus of those members present to recommend to the Opera House Park Improvement Committee that they re-think the idea of brick walkways and that they check into other types such as concrete aggregate or the concrete with brick mold. In the meantime, several members said they would attend the next Township Trustee' s meeting and ask them if they would consider possibly using something other than a brick walkway or, if they would be willing to contribute more money for the brick walkways.
Vice Mayor Davison mentioned that the Opera House Bell which rests in the median on West Broadway, still needs to be moved to the park. He said the Granville Preservation Association has stated that they will pay for the moving of the bbeellll, but there is still the matter of funds for a base in the park to put the on. The Committee has made no decision on what to do with the Elm Tree sculpture. In conclusion, Mr. Davison said the Opera House Park Improvement Com- mittee has scheduled a meeting for Monday, May 7, 1984, at 7: 30 p.m.,in Village pCaorukn'cil Chambers, and that he would convey Council' s feelings with regard to the s walkways.
Township Trustee' s Meeting -Vice Mayor Davison reported on the Trustee' s meeting. He said Mayor Gallant made a good presentation at that meeting with regard to the Township participating in the BeechwoodT/hornewood Drives improvement project. Mr. Davison said the Township Trustee' s made no committment on the matter, but
