Humane Society has assumed this expense. Ms. Fenc- hiona-dded, that
with the income from the Animal Shelter and investments of
capital enable them to operate, but they cannot carty the entire
cost of the Humane Agent as well. Ms. Lewis gave a summary of

Society' s Agent, and consider some way to contribute towards the

During discussion, expressions of opinion by members were:
Councilmember Garrett wanted to know if anything was being dppe ·,
in the way of legislation to revise the code. Ms. Fe- neho+n *LU*Z' g ,
explained that they were trying. Councilmember Schnaidt was in
favor of the Village contributing a fair share, such as a
percentage, using perhaps population as a means of coming up with
a fair share, and; as long as there is a Humane Agent Officer.
Councilmember Avery was favorable to the idea if, there was some
equitable way to figure the Village' s share. A figure of 6 or 7%
was discussed. Final consensus of Council was, that the Manager
prepare legislation to recognize the Licking County Humane
Society' s Agent, and to round the figure out for the Village' s
share towards the Humane Agent' s salary, of $50. 00/month or
600 a year.

evening to introduce himself as a candidate for Council.

intent to Village Council for her proposed "Olde Granville
Antique Fair" day in Granville and distributed copies of that,

space as a participant in the fair.

regarding the lease form and if he felt that the form covered the
liability portion.

terms, it would probably do the job.

planned for the fair to be held on East Broadway between the

seedlings for future re-planting throughout the Village. The
letter states that the Kiwanis have the opportunity to purchase
200 high-yield sugar maple seedlings.

was the type of thing that the Granville Improvement Board
should be involved in. He said the trees are targeted for future
planting in the Village and that the Improvement Board determines
where the young trees are to be planted.

are these seedlings and were they merely picked for their
high sugar yield (which are more prone to disease),or, were they
