OLD BUSINESS
Ordinance No. 12-89, "An Ordinance Vacating The Unimproved
Portion Of A Public Street And Declaring An Emergency."
Councilmember Morrow moved for passage of the Emergency
Clause, and read this section in its entirety. Motion seconded
by Vice Mayor Schnaidt.
Note: Several property owners in the Fern Hill Addition
appeared in support of this ordinance and expressed concerns in
regards to the safety and welfare of the residents who live in
the area if this ordinance is not passed. The Village' s engineer
inspected the area and the unimproved portion of the street and
found it to be inadequate for a thoroughfare. Earlier, when
meetings were conducted on the possibility of a merger with the
Township, the Township Trustees originally proposed this area to
be platted as an unimproved drive. The Commissioners didn' t see
it that way and approved this area as an unimproved portion of
a public street. For these reasons, the residents of the area
were in favor of this ordinance.
Also noted at this time was the fact that the legal notice
proposing vacation of the unimproved portion of the street was
advertised in the legal section of the Granville Sentinel for six
weeks as required by law.

been away on vacation for a period of nine days during this
period, and that she and her son have been found to use less
than the average 100 gallons per day, per person. She claims that
no leaks were found by her nor the property maintenance man.
Joe Hickman, Utilities Director, and Ann Wright, Accounting
Clerk, wrote a memo to Manager Plunkett outlining Ms. Fontaine' s
water consumption over the past eight months: 157, 000 gallons
passed through the meter at 117 Thresher Street in a two month
period from Feb. 1 -April 3. Mr. Hickman stated that the water
meter was tested for accuracy and found to be .33% slow. Ms.
Fontaine' s usage has returned to normalcy although no plumbing
repairs were made, and no leaks were found.
Mr. Hickman also stated that all property owners are
obligated to keep their plumbing in order.
Following a brief discussion, consensus of Council was that
if the meter could not be faulted, then payment for the water used is owed. Ms. Fontaine may work out a payment plan with the Village' s WaterS/ewer Billing Department to reduce the outstanding
bill over a period agreed upon by the proper municipal
authority. A copy of Ms. Fontaine' s letter with attachments, and
Mr.HickmanA/nn Wright' s Memo, are hereby attached as part of these minutes.
