three persons not related by blood or marriage residing in this
building. The Village subsequently filed a lawsuit against Mr.&
Mrs. Shumway and the five female student renters.
Mr. Greene stated to Council that Mr. Shumway was sincere
about settling this matter out of court and would be willing to
drop his appeal, pay court costs to date, and; be willing to attorney fees. if, Council pay would allow the two extra girls
residing at this residence to remain until the end of the school
year.
Ms. Munro' s advice to Council was not to back off on the
lawsuit. Further, the tenants don' t realize that this matter is
their problem too. Ms. Munro said she understood that there is
plenty of room left on campus for the two extra girls that must
move, so they would have someplace to go. Following a lengthy question and answer session, consensus of Council was that they did not wish to drop their lawsuit and instructed Law Director Munro to inform Mr. Greene of their decision.
Next to speak was Hope Card, 225 S. Prospect, who appeared this evening in regards to the Ohio State Liquor Board Control approving a D1- Liquor License to Helen Phillips, dba Shades Above, even though there was great opposition at the hearing held in the Licking County Administration Building October 27, 1987. She then presented Council with a petition signed by 22 residents in the area of the Shades Above, and as spokes person ' for the group, requested that Council appeal the decision of the Ohio Department of Liquor Control within the time frame allowed by the state, which is 30 days. Mrs. Card stated that if it took 20 appeals, maybe the state would realize that people do not want liquor licenses in residential areas. A copy of the petition protesting the D1- liquor permit is hereby attached as part of these minutes.
Mrs. Brockman complained that allowing this D-1 liquor permit would only compound the parking problem at the Elm' s Building, along with the noise, and litter. Mr. Preston stated that the loud shouting and foul language is bad enough now, and hates to think how this might increase, with the carryo-ut feature of the permit. Most did not seem to object to the drinking beer with your meal portion of the permit but to the carryo-ut feature that goes along with a D1- Permit. Following a lengthy discussion, Mayor Eisenberg thanked Mrs. ' wCaitrhd, Mrs. Brockman and Mr. Preston for appearing< before Council furthethr.eir concerns, and that Council would discuss this matter Action on this item was held for old business.

Ltd.,was present for the meeting to present his written and oral
responses to questions posed by Ann Munro in her opinion of January 7, 1988.
A lengthy question and answer session followed among Council, Manager Plunkett, Law Director Munro and Mr. Turner. The following statement is a consensus of that session: 1) the Village feels an obligation to assist in the correction of deficiencies that exist in the drainage system because the Village contributes to approximately 50%of the runoff going into ' this ditch, therefore, in order to treat both Mr. Shafer &Mr. Newhouse fairly, and the citizenry of Granville, Council must fairly apportion the cost for the work to be done. 2) seek an estimate of the cost to excavate the ditch (using a rip-rap lined stream)b,etween the two properties, extend it to the back of both properties, then bulldoze a detention basin north of the bicycle path. once estimates are received, Mr. Shafer &Mr. Newhouse will need to agree to sharing in the cost and provide easements, before the village can commit to performing the work. A copy of Mr. Turner' s written report and responses are hereby attached as part of these minutes.
Property Purchase -A brief discussion in regards to a potential land acquisition was conducted among members of Council, Law wDaisremcatoder Munro, and Manager Plunkett. No decision on this item at this time.

Re: West Broadway Storm Sewer
System
Pursuant to your request, this firm has thoroughly researched the
tributary area and associated drainage run-off for the storm ditch
system which runs between Shaffer and Newhouse properties, located
on West Broadway.
Following are comments on request facts to be determined:
1) Natural capacity of ditch: The existing ditch is very poorly
defined. Ditch cross sections indicate there is no continuous capa- city to maintain a definitive volume of flow from W. Broadway to the railroad tracks. In the areas where the ditch is defined, theoretical
capacities could range from 4 CFS to 48 CFS. Since the ditch is
not continuous, this level of flow could not be reached, but instead
water will flow to the southwest, following natural drainage patterns. in areas where there is no ditch..
2) Tributary area: Based on data available, the natural drainage
area was approximately 11.5 acres. Construction of West Broadway,
and associated storm system, increased the water shed by an additional 11 acres.
3) Capacity of natural water course: Basically the ditch has no capacity to control water flow due to undefined limits. Consequently,
the existing ditch is not capable of handling the natural run-off nor any additional run- off.
4).N/A
5) Alternatives: Previously submitted with construction drawings.
6) Water flows: Natural -19.6 CFS Additional -15.3 CFS
