Mr. &Mrs. Keith Newhouse appeared this evening to express their
concerns in regards to storm drainage and possible sewer infiltration
on their undeveloped piece of property. The property is
located between Archie Shafer' s and the Granville Square Apartments.
Mr. Shafer was also present this evening to add his
input on the matter.
Manager Plunkett explained to members of Council, that there
has been a problem with drainage in this area for many years.
Mrs. Newhouse said her father (Myron Ickes),had always claimed
that someone at Village Hall (years ago),promised that this
matter would be taken care by the Village. Mr. Plunkett said he
has searched for some record of this commitment but found none,
and; found no easements. The Newhouses plan to build a home on
this lot soon and would like some answers as to when something
might be done to alleviate this problem. Mr. Plunkett explained
that several households in this area are not on the Village sewer
system, and has asked the Licking County Health Department to
check houses in this area for sewage contributions to this
problem. He said first, an engineering study would have to be
performed to determine what will need to be done, and; an
estimate of the cost to do thJ necessary work.

scope of the Village Service Department. Mr. Plunkett stated
that no one in the Village' s employ has the credentials to do
the study, etc..

Mr. Gallant invite those people here on behalf of the Peace
Fellowship to make comments at this time and opened the floor for
discussion.
David Woodyard, spoke on behalf of the Peace Fellowship' s
Peace Pole gift to the Village. He pointed out that peace is not
a political issue. The Peace Pole, was initiated by Japan in the
spirit of peace. Mr. Woodyard said peace poles are now located in
18 states in the union, and many places around the world. Also,
that it is entirely appropriate for the pole to be placed near
the center of town. Mr. Woodyard further stated, that he had left
the Improvement Board meeting with the understanding that they
were in agreement to the placing of the peace pole in one of the
flower tubs located on either side of the Broadway crosswalk.
Discussion then went to Council members, and questions such
as how high the pole was, and how tall would it be once it was
planted in the ground, etc..Response: 91" high, 20" would be
underground.
Mayor Gallant said he talked with Paul King, and he had an
alternate location, at the flag pole area. He thought it might
be appropriate there, though not quite in the center of town, it
would be visible. Mr. Davison commented, that the Granville
Improvement Board had a problem with placing the peace pole in
this area because of people crossing the street to view the pole
closer. Councilmember Avery felt the planter was a good idea.
Councilmember Eisenberg like the flag pole area suggestion but
had no objection to the peace pole being placed in one of the
planters. Councilmember Schnaidt expressed a concern that with
20" of the pole being planted in the planter, fearing that it
might not be too difficult to knock down. Pat Thomas responded to
this, and said the pole would be planted in cement. Councilmember
Garrett questioned whether the planters were deep enough to
accommodate 20" of pole. Pat Thomas responded and said the pole
could be cut off.
A motion that the Peace Pole be planted in the southeast
planter at the Broadway crosswalk and that it blend proportionality,
was made by Vice Mayor Davison, seconded by Councilmember
Avery. Motion carried.
Manager Plunkett will contact the Garden Club members to
make sure they are in agreement to the Peace Pole being planted
in one of the planters.
The Peace Fellowship members agreed to supervise and direct
the placement of the pole if Manager Plunkett would supply the
manpower.
