GRANVILLE VILLAGEG/RANVILLE TOWNSHIP PUBLIC HEARING
Curbside Recycling Committee' s Recommendation
Lee Larson, spokesperson for the Curbside Recycling Committee
gave a brief summary of how and why the committee was formed and
its charge. In March '91, Village Council received a 500+
signature petition requesting a curbside recycling program in
Granville and Granville Township. The urgency of the request was prompted by the knowledge that State House Bill 592 mandates that
counties in Ohio must reduce their waste by 25%by the end of
1993, or be subject to fines, the shrinking availability of landfill space, and the proposed closing of the Granville
Recycling Center in March of 1992 who' s service to the community
spans over twenty years. A Curbside Recycling Committee was formed and Denise Crews, Licking County Sanitary Engineer
presented the Committee with an overview of recycling programs in Ohio. The Committee met in the last few months in addition to visiting landfills and other communities who' ve initiated
recycling programs. They set up interviews with different
haulers, and found they couldn' t get any of them interested in recycling

unless its was piggybacked with trash. The Committee' s June 1991
report lists their recommendations, with advantages outweighing
the disadvantages. In conclusion the Committee recommends that
both entities initiate formal bidding processes to obtain
exclusive contracts for the collection of solid waste and
recyclable materials from residential households.
The recommendation of the Committee was well received by
most of the citizens present. Mr. &Mrs. Larry Huey, 129 West
College Street, however, were concerned about performance having
dealt with several haulers who did not perform well. They did not
want to give up their right to choose, stating that they would
rather pay additional cost than to give up their right to choose
what hauler they do business with.
Councilmember Rader was concerned on how citizens could have
input on whether an exclusive contract should be awarded. He
asked if the Village or Township would place the issue on the
ballot so that all the people could vote on it, or would it be
voted on by Village Council and the Township Trustees themselves?
He too was concerned about the freedom of choice.
No action on the Committee' s recommendations was taken at
this time. The proposal was scheduled to be on Village Council' s agenda for July 3rd. The public hearing closed at 7: 55 p.m.

COMMITTEE REPORTS
Union Cemetery Report -Councilmember Marshall reported that he met with Robert Becker, Licking County Prosecutor, Norm Kennedy, Granville Township Clerk, Eric Jones, Granville Township Trustee, and Manager Plunkett to discuss a proposal to form a Union
Cemetery of Old Colony. Mr. Becker announced that the only legal

way the Granville Township could contribute the $91,000 towards
the restoration of Old Colony would be if the cemetery was an
active burial ground and space for indigents. Flo Hoffman did
some research on Old Colony, and discovered that there were three
spaces left in Old Colony, which changes the classification from
inactive to active, which would make the creation of a Union
Cemetery between the Village of Granville and Granville Township
legal.
Discussion then centered on how the Village would match the
Townships contribution if such a union cemetery was formed.
Granville Township Clerk, Norman Kennedy figured what it would
cost the Township to maintain the cemetery per year, based on
some test mowing and discussions with Dave McDaniel and Lyle King
since the Township has the equipment to maintain cemeteries).
The cost would be approximately 7$,000y/ear. This amount would
provide labor, equipment and related expenses to mow the Old
Colony Burial Grounds as needed, plant annuals in three flower
beds and weed as necessary, and remove all leaves in the fall. It
would take the Village about thirteen years to match the
Township's $91, 000 contribution towards the restoration of Old
Colony. No formal action on this issue was taken at this time.

Ordinance No. 17-91, " An Ordinance To Amend Section 1187. 03(B) Of The Codified Ordinances Of The Village Of Granville."
Councilmember Freytag questioned the rationale of 72" ( 6 ft)
maximum height for a fence as opposed to an 84" ( 7 ft) fence. He
noted that many people are six foot talland could easily see over
a six foot fence. Councilmember Marshall said he didn' t know what
the rationale was other than Planning Commission members felt
that a 6 ft fence was sufficient. Mr. Freytag also noted under
Section I (5) Exceptions states same as prior (3) Side and Rear
Yard Restrictions, which didn' t make any sense. Mr. Freytag
suggested that (5) Exceptions be deleted, and under the previous
4) after the word shock, insert the words: except, as part of an agricultural operation or for safety and protection of
individuals from hazard, such as electric substations. Consensus
of members present agreed the ordinance needed some cleaning up, and Councilmember Marshall moved to table the ordinance until the
July 3rd meeting.
