out loud the certificate to those in attendance. Mr. Gallant
asked that the Manager find an appropriate place to display the
certificate in Village Hall.

Mr. &Mrs. Kirk Newhouse, 633 West Broadway, appeared this
evening to obtain any information Council or the Village Manager
might have with regard to how soon the open ditch will be tiled
between Archie Shafer' s and his property on West Broadway.
Manager Plunkett responded and said an analysis on this
project was performed by Jerry Turner, of C.F.Bird &R.J.Bull,
Ltd..Three alternates were given for the subject project ranging
from $15, 000 to $90,000. Mr. Turner recommended Alternate #3, partial piping a and renovation of the existing ditch, estimated
cost $31,000. Mr. Plunkett added that written easements would
have to be obtained from Mr. Newhouse and Mr. Shafer before the
Village could legally do any work. He said he would include this project in his proposed 1988 budget for Council' s consideration.
Mr. Newhouse was not pleased with the recommendation nor was he happy with granting an easement. He particularly disliked the idea of having a retention pond to the rear of his property. Mr. Turner stated that whatever way the project is done, a holding area would definitely be needed.
It was explained to the Newhouses' that the Village did
not have $90, 000 to pipe the storm water through their property to the creek. Further, they would be hard pressed to do Alternate 3 as recommended by the Village' s engineer at an estimated cost of $30,000·
Consensus of Council was, that Manager Plunkett, Mr. Turner and the property owners meet and come to some mutual agreement on this project. A copy of Mr. Turner' s recommendations are hereby attached as part of these minutes.
Improvement Board -Village Council was presented with some guidelines devised by the Improvement Board with reference to requests received by the Village for an additionc,o,ntribution, vdiollnaagtieon, gift, etc.,to be place on or within any of the the parks, or; ono/r within any Village property over which Improvement Board might have jurisdiction.

Granville East Sanitary Sewer Stud¥ J-erry Turner of C.F.Bird &
R.J.Bull Ltd.,presented Council with a written and oral report
outlining his recommendations for sanitary sewers proposed to
serve Granville east of Jones Road and south of Newark-Granville
Road. Mr. Turner passed out copies of his written recommendations
to members so they might follow along with his oral report.
Mr. Turner also displayed a large area map with sections shaded
in various colors representing different areas to be served by
the sewer. A lengthy question and answer session was conducted
among members of Council, the Village Manager and Mr. Turner. A
copy of Mr. Turner' s recommendations are hereby attached as part

Bob Kent, representing the Granville Golf Course Company,
requested Councils' support in allowing another sewer lift
station in addition to Bryn Du Woods, to serve the lower half of
Bill Wrights property on Newark-Granville Road when and if he
annexes to the Village. Mr. Kent said perhaps a letter stating
that they would not object to another lift station on, Newark
During discussion, members did not feel that they could
commit future members of Council to another lift station perhaps
a year or more down the road. Council at this time, was in
agreement to another sewer lift station provided such a facility
was installed in accordance with engineering and construction
requirements, and·;if the facility were located within the
Village corporate limits. Council directed Manager Plunkett to
draft a letter to Mr. Wright on behalf of Council expressing
their feelings. Mr. Plunkett said he would have the draft letter
for their review by the next regular meeting.

Liquor Permit Request DI Shades Above -East Elm Street -
Councilmember Schnaidt moved that the Clerk of Council be
directed to reply to the State Liquor Control Board that Council
requests a hearing to be held in the county seat of the county
in which the permit premises is to be located, and; that property
owners/ residents within 200 feet of the establishment requesting
the permit be notified of that hearing upon notification of its
scheduling by the State Liquor Board. Motion seconded by Council- member Garrett. Motion carried.
Mayor Gallant read a letter addressed to village Council from Phyllis W. Greene on behalf of the Granville Recycling Center. The letter states that the Granville Recycling Center is offering
a $500 gift to the Village and requests that Council give them
some thoughts as to how this award could best be used, and how
Council proposes to spend the money. They will then send a check for $500. 00·Consensus of Council was, that this money would best be spent by paying someone to maintain the Broadway flower beds.
Manager Plunkett mentioned to Council that Steve Cartnal, Granville Police Chief, informed him that a LEADS training class will be available at COTC August 10 through August 13th. Chief Cartnal feels that the Department should take advantage of this training even though they do not have a LEADS terminal at the present time. He proposes to send three people for this training. Members were interested in the cost for a LEADS terminal, and how we were obtaining information now. Mr. Plunkett said there would be a one time installation fee of $350. 00 and a lease payment of $400 per month for the LEADS terminal plus
expenses for supplies. Presently the Department uses OSP or the SO, however, some information they will not give over the phone. Following discussion, the consensus of Council was that too much time would lapse from training period to actual use, and the possibility that those trained would not be in the Village' s employ when and if a terminal is obtained. Members felt that the Police Department could use the sources available to them now unless the situation changes.
