Wavs &Means -The Ways &Means Committee met with Seasongood &
Mayer and Prescott, Ball &Turben, both specialists in public
finance. The purpose of the meeting was to determine advantages
to the Village in refunding the current sewer bond issue, which
financed the sewage treatment plant, and various sewers and liftstations
connected thereto. Proposals from both firms were
reviewed and analyzed. Both proposals were comparable [6.7%
compared to 7%ea]c,h one using slightly different techniques.
The committee figured there would be an accumulated savings to
the Village of approximately $219,000 over the life of the sewer
bond issue if it were refinanced. The Ways &Means Committee
recommended that the Village go with Seasongood &Mayer for an
advanced refunding of the current Sewer Bond Issue.
Recreation Commission -Councilmember Hughes reported on the
Recreation Commission meeting of February 5th. The Gemmi-r: ese*n
urchased property located at SR16 and Silver Street (53 acres). Approximately 12 to 15 acres will be set aside for ball fields.
Discussion of managing and maintaining those fields were discussed as well as preserving green space. The Commission is still looking for contractors to construct rest rooms at the shelter house in Wildwood Park; bids received for that work were
too high. Plans are to seek new bids, hoping to get competitive prices.
OLD BUSINESS
Granville Business &Professional Association Requests
Several requests submitted by the Granville Business &
Professional Association were submitted for Council' s consideration at the meeting of January 16th, and were postponed. They were: Bed Tax Monies Use proposal, the Juried Art Show scheduled for June 8th seeking a street closing, and; permission to hold the Fifth Annual Antique Fair and Sale, September 28th, also seeking a street closing.
Brent Bennett, spokesperson for the GBPA, talked about the Bed Tax Monies Use proposal passed by the Executive Board of the GBPA. The proposal asks that a portion of the bed tax money collected by Licking County and redistributed to Granville Village be appropriated to a special designated fund in its entirety to be spent for its intended purpose as specified in the original state legislation. The proposal suggests two possibilities that Council might consider. One would be for the Village to donate the bed tax money to GBPA to promote Granville. Another suggestion was to form a joint committee of GBPA and Council to oversee the spending of the bed tax monies.

Following a lengthy discussion, most members were not in
favor of any annual subsidy to the GBPA, but would support GBPA
if they came to Village Council with an appropriate project. A
copy of GBPA's proposal is attached as part of these minutes.
The request to hold the Juried Art Show June 8th, from 6:00 a.m.
to 6: 00 p.m.,and to close Broadway from the West side of Main
Street (Baptist Church and Presbyterian Church) to Mulberry
Street was discussed. Following discussion, an alternate area for
the show (North Main Street from Broadway to College), was suggested by Council. Brent Bennett said he would ask the Juried
Art Show people if this would work for them. Decision on the
request was tabled until Mr. Bennett has had Council' a chance to present s suggestion to the Juried Art Show people.
Mary Fellabaum, President of the Granville Business and
Professional Association, sought permission from Village Council
to hold the Annual Antique Fair and Sale September 28th, and to close East Broadway between Pearl ·Street and Library Alley from

East Granville Sewers -Jerry Turner and Chuck Coghlan, both of
C.F.Bird &R.J.Bull, Inc.,Granville' s Engineers, presented their study of the anticipated sanitary sewer flows likely to be generated from the proposed Farmington and Erinwood Developments, along with their associated impact on the existing system. Mr. Turner distributed copies of the Granville East Sanitary Trunk Sewer Study and engineering data compiled to substantiate his conclusions and recommendations. Using a topographical map with areas to be eventually served with sewers shaded in
different colors and coded by numbers and letters, Mr. Turner reviewed his study with members to coordinate with data distributed to them.
Factors involved in the decision about sewers for east Granville, and how that decision would likely impact the community, were discussed. Council listened to Mr. Turner's recommendations to either limit sewers along NewarkG- ranville Road to customers generated by the Farmington and Erinwood developments, or to construct a major trunk sewer along the bike path and SR 16 with a 30' deep lift station east of the existing
