Mayor Eisenberg reminded Ms. Malcuit that having an
exclusive contract with one hauler was received unfavorably by
the citizens when they were surveyed. Ms. Malcuit stated that the
Curbside Recycling Committee would like to change those negative
responses into positive votes, noting, that the cost would be a
lot less by going with an exclusive contract.
OLD BUSINESS

Ordinance To Amend Ordinance No. 26-90 Providing For Adjustments
Of The Annual Budget For The Fiscal Year 1991 And Revising Sums
For Operating Expenses," from the table for discussion. Motion
seconded by Councilmember Marshall.
The ordinance would transfer $50, 000 from the Municipal
Building Reserve Fund to the General Fund for renovations to the
Village Offices. These monies would be added to what was already
appropriated in the 1991 Budget. Bids for the proposed
renovations were received this week. Manager Plunkett reviewed
the bids and made his recommendations. He asked that Council
reconsider renting office space at the American Baptist Churches
of Ohio building and going with Option B of the bid proposal on the renovations at a cost of $83,000. He stated that renting of
the offices at the ABC building would lock in place the office
space and meeting room as well for five years, at a yearly cost Of $9,000.
During a lengthy discussion of the issue, Councilmember
Freytag recommended that the ordinance be tabled again until Mr. Morrow and Mr. Rader were present, since they had such strong feelings on the matter.

Pearl Street Stop Sign Request -Manager Plunkett explained that he received a letter from Thalia Oster, 228 North Pearl Street, officially requesting that a stop sign and crosswalk be installed at the corner of North Pearl and Summit Streets. During discussion of this issue, it was noted that traffic control devices can not be used to control speeds according to State Regulations. Since North Pearl Street is State Route 661, approval of such a stop sign and crosswalk would be highly unlikely. Ms. Oster noted in her letter that stops signs have been approved by the state in some cases. This would require a traffic study and a residential profile. Ms. Oster stated in her letter that she was sure many Pearl &Summit Street residents would help meet those state requirements if necessary.
