Hilah Williams, co-owner of The Elms Complex located on East Elm
Street, presented Council with petitions signed by 502 residents/
patronsp/atients, stating that they support the parking in front
of The Elms Complex at 113-115 E. Elm St.,and Dr. Raker's Office
at 117 E. Elm St. Mrs. Williams expressed her disappointment with
the Planning Commission in that neither she nor her husband was
informed that their parking was to be discussed at the November
7th Planning Commission meeting. She felt that with all the
zoning rules and regulations it was hard for business people to
make it in Granville.

NEW BUSINESS
Acknowledge Receipt of the Village Manager's Proposed 1992
Municipal Budget.
Receipt of the Village Manager' s Proposed 1992 Municipal Budget
was acknowledged by consensus of Village Council.
Mayor Eisenberg asked Manager Plunkett to give a brief
summary of the proposed budget. Following Mr. Plunkett' s review
of the proposed budget, Mayor Eisenberg commented that on the
whole Mr. Plunkett did a pretty good job of budgeting and
managing.
Vice Mayor Morrow questioned Mr. Plunkett's recommendation
of a 3%increase across the board for employees. Mr. Morrow said
he could appreciate the way Mr. Plunkett protects his employees,
however, a step procedure was put in place in 1989 as recommended
to Village Council by the Personnel Committee at that time. He
felt the 3%increase was out of line.
Manager Plunkett responded and said it was his duty to make
recommendations, and that that was his recommendation, and that
it was below the 3.7%increase earmarked for senior citizens on social security.
Councilmember Hughes commented that the Village was way ahead of inflation and that they couldn't afford to keep increasing wages.

read in its entirety by Councilmember Marshall.
Manager Plunkett briefly summarized the ordinance which
would add sections to the Codified Ordinances relating to
licensing and operation of garbage, refuse and recycling
materials contractors within the Village. He said the ordinance
would require haulers to provide recycling but would not mandate
that the customer participate in the recycling. He then asked if members had any recommended changes to the ordinances or questions. Councilmember Marshall noted that there was no proviso
for a license fee. Manager Plunkett said no, but a bond would be required. Councilmember Freytag recommended that under licensing
haulers be required to offer one package for one price and that it include recycling. Mayor Eisenberg agreed that if it was put in as part of the licensing, and available, people would use the service. By consensus of Council, the ordinance is to be amended to include Councilmember Freytag' s recommendation. 1
