letter with explanations is hereby attached as part of these
Alice Vockel, Secretary for Gran Flora, appeared this evening to
recap Gran Flora' s letter requesting that the Village install
or arrange for the installment of a permanent water tap on the
median strip in front of Mon9moy House. The Gran Flora is interested in eventually having four of these hydrants different at intervals in the median strip to provide easy access to . water for the flower beds. Manager Plunkett estimated the cost
for four of these hydrants with reducer valves, street cutting
and repair, and installation at approximately $2400. The group can only afford to pay for one this year. Ms. Vockel said if the Village could possibly see a way to help pay for this hydrant it would be nice. If not, they are prepared to pay the $600. Ms. vockel also asked if it would be possible to have this done by May 10th.

Following a lengthy discussion among members of Council and
Manager Plunkett, consensus was that Council would waive the
water tap fee, and usage of the water, but Gran Flora would
have to pay for the hydrant, reducer valve, road cutting and
repair, and installation. Manager Plunkett did not feel the
Village could do this work by the group' s desired deadline of
May 10th.
Development Commission -Councilmember Malcuit reported on the
Commission' s meeting of April 26, 1989. At that meeting the
Commission approved a sign permit, a deck addition, and looked
at a proposal submitted by Greg Frazier for a landscape ordinance.
All indications are that the Commission will recommend a
landscape ordinance to Council for consideration. The Commission
also discussed Adult Bookstores and want to go on record as being
against any possible adult book stores in the Village and
recommend to Village Council that they explore the possibility of
adopting legislation to ban any form of adult book stores in the
Village of Granville.
A brief discussion among members of Council and Ann Munro
was conducted on this subject. Ms. Munro felt there would be
something the Village could do to prohibit the sale of adult
books in the Village, and would check with Heath and Hebron' s Law
Director on how they proceeded with their legislation.
Councilmember Morrow said he would like Ms. Munro to look
into the Criminal Law prohibiting the sale of adult books.
Granville Recreation Commission -Councilmember Hughes reported
that all systems for the summer are a go. The "Mystery Bus Trip"
went over so well, plans are to schedule another one soon.
Concert on the Green has been scheduled for the summer with one
extra program added. The Shelter House plans are proceeding:
Zoning application has been approved, and the Recreation Commission
has applied for a Commercial Permit from Newark to build the
structure (rest rooms for the shelter house will be dependent on finances).
Councilmember Rader mentioned the material enclosed in
the Village Manager' s Memo packet regarding the Licking County
Planning Commission' s Committee Report on Park Districts. Mr.
Rader was concerned that the Committee' s proposal for a permanent
tax levy to support a Licking Park District would compete
for the same tax dollars that support the Granville Recreation
Commission. Mr. Rader also noted that the city parks provide are able to more for the public.
Councilmember Hughes said most people here feel Granville
needs something more accessible locally. He said hopefully with
a better facility more will attend.

plan to address this outstanding bill before the next regular

Ordinance No. 21-89, "An Ordinance To Amend Ordinance No. 21-88
Providing For Adjustments Of The Annual Budget For The Fiscal
Year 1989 And Revising Sums For Operating Expenses", was introduced
and title read in its entirety by Councilmember Morrow. A
public hearing on this ordinance was set for May 17, 1989, at
7: 30 p.m..
Maintenance Code -Manager Plunkett noted at this time that a
few years ago, an attempt was made to pass legislation governing
abatement of unsafe buildings. At that time, he asked the Fire
Department to handle the enforcement of such regulations and was
turned down. The ordinance was defeated at that time. Vice Mayor
Schnaidt mentioned two vacant properties that were unsafe and
needed to be destroyed before someone gets hurt. The two properties
mentioned were: the Ashbrook house on Shepardson Court
and the one on Newark-Granville Road owned by Bill Wright.
Following a lengthy discussion, consensus of Council was
that the Village needs an ordinance to ensure that all structures
meet minimum safety standards and would pursue legislation to
address this issue.
Mayor Eisenberg suggested that in the interim the Village
pursue the nuisance route to address the two abandoned and
unsafe structures.
