PUBLIC HEARING
Liquor License Renewals
At Village Council' s request, Manager Plunkett sent letters to
all liquor license holders in the Village, notifying them that
Council had received the annual "Notice of Renewals" from the
Ohio Department of Liquor Control which invited the legislative
authorities to object to renewal of liquor licenses. Manager
Plunkett' s letter notified license holders that a public hearing
had been set by Village Council to invite public comments as to
whether or not the Village should object to renewal of any or all
liquor licenses.
Ed Koons, representing Certified Oil, assured all present that
his company wanted to be a good neighbor. Certified Oil has
operations in 40 locations in Ohio, 18 of which hold liquor
licenses. He further stated that out of those 18, there had been
only one infraction this year.
John Cassell (216 East College Street), at the hearing voiced his complaints about the Gran- Villa, located on the corner of North
Prospect and East College Streets. Mr. Cassell informed Council
that loud yelling, racing engines, and the blowing of horns occurred often around 2:00 a.m.w, aking everyone, particularly when Denison was in session. Some of those GranV- illa departees had torn down his Christmas decorations. He recommended that hours be restricted and that more police observe the GranV- illa around 1 it' s closing time.

Steve Beck, Denison Student, stated the Village would see more of
a problem in general if liquor licenses were revoked in the
Village. His suggested solution to the problem would be to let
the owners know their patrons are disturbing residents, rather
than closing them down.
Mayor Eisenberg stated that Council couldn't restrict the
hours of any liquor license holder: that is up to the State
Liquor Board.
Other liquor license holders were present for the hearing, but
none voiced any complaints about their establishments, and no
questions were directed to them.
The public hearing closed on this issue. Discussion and
action, by Village Council will be conducted under old business.

Mayor Eisenberg summarized a letter received from Kimberly Salvage, 73
Berline Court. Ms. Salvage expressed her hope that the new Council
would keep her repeated request for the construction of sidewalks from
Bryn Du Woods Subdivision to Fern Hill along NewarkG- ranville Road as
a high priority among items to be accomplished in 1992.
MAYOR'S REPORT
The Mayor's Report for the month of November was presented and
reviewed. Following review, the clerk was directed to file the report.
A copy of that report is attached as part of these minutes.
MANAGER' S REPORT
The Manager's Report for the month of November was presented.
Councilmember Vance had several questions with regard to the Water and
Wastewater section of the Manager's Report. Utilities Director Joe
Hickman was on hand to respond to Mr. Vance' s questions. In addition,
Mr. Hickman stated that the Village still needs a sludge holding tank,
and repeated his hope that it will be built in 1993. Mr. Hickman
stated that sludge handling was a complicated issue, one that is
difficult to explain in short terms. He noted that the 1992 budget
proposes $40,000 for sludge handling.
Manager Plunkett reviewed with members other sections of the
report. Following review, Vice Mayor Marshall moved that the Manager' s Report be approved. Motion was seconded by Councilmember Freytag.

COMMITTEE REPORTS
Planning Commission -Vice Mayor Marshall reported on the Commission' s
meeting of December 5th. Approval had been granted by the Planning
Commission to Dennis Geraghty, 204 East College Street, to construct
an attached garage at the rear of the existing home, with living area
on the second floor. Mr. Marshall stated that the Planning Commission
approval violated the current zoning ordinance which doesn't allow a
two-family unit in the Village Residential District. Mr. Marshall
stated that the approval should be discussed further in a joint
meeting with Village Council and the Planning Commission.
Frank and Herb Murphy' s Erinwood Final Plat had also been
reviewed. Since the partial final plat submitted was for review and
discussion only, no action was taken on the Final Plat.
Councilmember Herman asked if someone was putting together topics
to be discussed at the January 8th meeting, and Councilmember Freytag
asked if the Geraghty issue would be on that list.
Mayor Eisenberg reminded members of Council to prioritize their
choices for various Council Committees, so that appointments could be
made soon. He asked if any member was interested in serving as
Council' s representative on the Planning Commission. He stated that he
realized the position was a difficult one and very time consuming, but
hoped someone would volunteer. Questions from members with regard to
meetings and duties followed, but no one volunteered for that
appointment. Vice Mayor Marshall suggested rotating the position among
all members. Mayor Eisenberg questioned whether continuity would exist
in so doing.
Councilmember Shulman offered to attend the December 19th meeting
on a trial basis.
OLD BUSINESS
Liquor License Renewals
A lengthy question and answer session was conducted among members of
Council, Manager Plunkett and Granville Police Chief Steve Cartnal,
because of citizen complaints regarding the Gran- Villa, and police
activity in the vicinity of that establishment. Jeff Thompson, Manager
of the Gran- Villa was present to answer any questions Council might have.
Village Council questioned whether the Village had enough data to
present a strong case to protest renewal of Gran- Villa' s liquor
license. Councilmember Freytag felt it would be useless to protest
unless statistics were in hand, and didn't feel there was enough to
make a case. He preferred that the Village monitor the establishment,
build the file, and be ready to prove it a problem next year, if that be the case.

the Gran- Villa and the Granville Police in addressing complaints and

should be commended for not having had problems.
