COMMITTEE REPORTS
Herman L. Counts III, Student Intern
Opera House Park Improvement Committee -Vice Mayor Davison reported that the Committee met Monday, September 24, 1984. He said at that meeting he explained to the Committee that any action taken on the park must be approved by Council. Mr. Davison said since there seems to be a problem with receiving bids on the brick walkways, the Committee felt that any work done in the park in this area, would have to be done piecem- eal, as funds become available. Their recommenda- tion is to proceed as far as they can with the front bench areas. Mr. Davison

brought with him the Opera House Park Plan and pointed out to members the brick
sitting areas the Committee would like to see finished. Mr. Davison commented
that he has been concerned about the money donated two years ago for benches.
Finishing the brick sitting areas to the front of the park would provide place for these benches. a
During discussion, Manager Plunkett went over his proposal to revamp the
facade of the Village Hall to the building' s north (park), side. The plan includes
a wheel chair ramp, and constructing the Park' s walkway spur from South
Main Street to the center of the new Village Hall entrance. Mr. Plunkett' s pro- posal called for 5 foot wide concrete walks bordered in brick. Cost for this
walk has. been estimated at $3360.50, and; the new entrance to Village Hall at 2300.
Following a lengthy discussion, the consensus of those members present was that the Township Trustees be presented with this proposal to use the money they contributed towards the sitting areas, and that Mr. Davison would discuss this plan with Mr. Chambers and the rest of the Committee. The brick sitting
area closest to St. Luke' s Church has been estimated at $2875, and the sitting area closestto Main Street has been estimated at $2745.
Citizen Group/ Income Tax Promotion
Mayor Gallant said he convened an informal meeting at his home this week for citizens who were interested in promoting the Income Tax proposal slated for consideration on November' s ballot. Present at the meeting were: Al Davison, Harold (Buck) Sargent, Cal Prine, and Dick Lucier. Others who did not attend the meeting but expressed their interest in volunteering were: Dick Johnston and- Judy Stansbury. Three or four additional people may be asked to volunteer. Mr. Gallant said he was not successful in getting one of the group to act as Chair- man. Each of the volunteers will be responsible for their own selected category. The meeting centered on ways to promote the Income Tax proposal. They were: median-ewspapers; letters to the editor; speaking at local organizational meet- ings; printing up fact sheets about why the additional funds are needed and exactly what they would be spent for; people to express their feelings on the proposed income tax increase; and, putting two or more ads in the local news- ipnaptehres. The Granville Booster has offered to print up the fact sheet and run it paper at no charge.
During discussion Manager Plunkett said he would gather information and make Ma eraonusghCodmrmaifttteeof the facts. Mayor Gallant suggested that perhaps the Ways & be printed could meet with the Village Manager and finalize a fact sheet to in the paper. Also during this discussion, two other persons were added to the Income Tax Promotion Group. They were: Carl Frazier and Mike Piper. No decision was made at this time on who would organike the Income Tax Promotion.
