Discussion: A lengthy debate was conducted by members of
Council in regards to Section I of this ordinance appropriating
8, 000, to provide additional monies for the construction of a
salt storage facility. The issue of the salt storage facility
costing approximately 50% more than what was estimated disturbed
Council and they wanted to discuss this issue further. All was
in agreement to go back to the drawing board on this item.
Section II, of Ordinance No. 24-89 was then discussed. This
appropriation would provide $3, 000 to purchase a new riding mower
for the Utilities Department. Mr. Hickman, Utilities Director,
was present to answer any questions Council might have on the
Capital Outlay item. He gave details of the commercial type mower
he had selected. Following a brief discussion, the following
motion was made:
Councilmember Avery moved to amend Ordinance No. 24-89 by
deleting Section I, appropriating $8,000. The $3, 000 appropriation
for a riding mower would stand. Motion seconded by Councilmember

Carrie Fontaine' s Water Bill/117 Thresher Street
Members of Council conducted a lengthy discussion on Ms.
Fontaine' s outstanding water bill of $934. 76. Mayor Eisenberg
asked members for their view on the matter. Consensus of that
review indicated that all of the members sympathized with Ms.
Fontaine in owing such an extremely large utility bill, however,
from the report of the Badger Meter Company, it was clear that no
fault could be found with the water meter taken from 117 Thresher
Street where Ms. Fontaine resides, nor, by the Village Utility
Department. Therefore, if the Village were to waive or adjust Ms.
Fontaine' s water &sewer bill, Council would be required to
change existing Village policy regarding leak adjustments.
None were willing to change the policy, with the exception of
one member. Therefore, it was the consensus of Council that Ms.
Fontaine would have to pay the $934. 76 utility bill. It was noted
to Ms. Fontaine that she would not have to pay the bill in a lump
sum, but could make time payments worked out with the Village
Manager if she wished.
A copy of the letter sent by Badger Meter Company in regards
to the above mentioned meter is hereby attached as part of these
minutes.
Alexandria Water Bill -Manager Plunkett gave an update report
on Alexandria and their past due water bill. Mr. Plunkett said
that he spoke with Audrea Allen, Alexandria Council Member, and
Mayor Reese. Alexandria Village Council have agreed to pay their
current bill by the 15th of each each month, and $500 by the 30th of month on their back bill.
NEW BUSINESS
Ohio Power Company -Richard Daugherty and Jeff VanDine from Ohio
Power Company appeared this evening to discussed with Council Ohio Power' s proposal to phase out incandescent street lights in the Village to the mercury vapor type. The present incandescent lights are getting harder to repair because of a lack of parts. Plans are to replace 77 incandescent lights with 123 of the mercury vapor ones. Mr. Daugherty distributed a map of the Village which was color coded to represent different zones in the Village. One zone would be done at a time, and the initial changeo-ver would be no cost to the Village. Ohio Power plans to begin work on Zone I in about two months.

During discussion, Manager Plunkett commented that he
wasn' t sure that people in the Village were ready for more
lights, and asked if it wouldn' t be possible to reduce the
number of Mercury Vapor street lights to reduce the level of
lighting to that which now exists in the Village. Mr. Daugherty
indicated this was something that could be negotiated.
Following discussion, Mayor Eisenberg thanked Mr. Daugherty
and Mr. VanDine for their presentation. Consensus of Council was
that this issue will need further discussion. A copy of Ohio
Power' s color coded map indicating the different zones that will
be replaced with the new lights is hereby attached as part of
these minutes.
