Prior to any public comments Vice Mayor Morrow announced that
Village Council would be holding public hearings November 6,
1991, at 7:30 p.m.,on the following issues: Refuse and Recycling
Bids, and assessments for the East Waterline Extension, however,
if there was anyone present who wished to make a statement on
either issue tonight they could.
Ann Kennedy, 416 Bryn Du Drive, Attorney for the Adkins family
who own and operate the BIG "0"refuse company, appeared to speak
on behalf of her clients. Ms. Kennedy said she was not at the
meeting to debate the refuser/ecycling exclusive contract issue,
but to correct a misconception that BIG "0"would not be able to
handle recycling. Continuing, Ms. Kennedy stated that Rose
Wingert called Mr. Adkins during the period when the Curbside
Recycling Committee were studying the issue. At that time,

Mr. Adkins told Ms. Wingert that he was not prepared to handle
recycling. However, BIG "0"now offers free recycling. Ms.
Kennedy said that BIG "0"was interested in bidding, but she
didn't think it made sense to pursue the idea of an exclusive
franchise for refuser/ecycling service when there are two trash
haulers already active in this type of service.
Mr. Adkins stated that he runs single axle trucks rather
than tandem trucks which tear up streets. As an added precaution
he always has two people on his trucks to employ safety.
Vice Mayor Morrow asked Mr. Adkins what areas BIG "0"serves
besides Granville, and; if they owned their own landfill.
Mr. Adkins stated that his company serves Newark, Heath,
Buckeye Lake, Thornville, Thornport, and parts of Glenford. His
company uses Suburban Land Fill. Suburban Land Fill plan to
expand their area in the near future to accommodate more material.
Councilmember Malcuit asked Mr. Adkins how he sorted the
recyclable material from the trash, and where did the items go? Mr. Adkins stated that Dick Sherman takes his aluminum, cardboard and paper, and glass goes to Zanesville. At the present time he didn't have a market for plastic, but understood from
sources that a facility will be built in Heath to recycle plastic products. In response to how he sorted these items, Mr. Adkins said he uses a small truck to pick up the recycle material. Mr. Adkins expressed concern that an exclusive contract would put smaller people in a bind. He felt bidders who own their own landfill may bid low and make up for their losses by charging people more who use their landfill.
In conclusion, Mr. Adkins stated that he mailed out letters to his customers announcing that he now offers pickup of recyclable material (copy attached).
Ms. Kennedy thanked Council in allowing her to speak on the recycle issue on behalf of her clients, and said she would see them at the November 6th public hearing.
Lee Larson, Hankinson Road T( wp)a,nd former member of the Curbside Recycling Committee, noted that there were two driving factors for seeking an exclusive refusere/ cycling contract: 1) cost per household, and 2) one day a week to pick up all the refuse and recycling in Granville rather than having trucks on tinhe roads all week long. Mr. Larson said maybe the bids will come won't be enough savings to award an exclusive
Dorothy Garrett (Council Candidate)4,5 Donald Ross Drive, brought up the change in parking on Granger Street, and the congestion of traffic during the periods when children are either being loaded or unloaded at the school each day. Ms. Garrett

blocks to eliminate that congestion.
Manager Plunkett explained that prior to the Pearl Street
replacement project, parking on Granger was allowed only on the
west side of the street. During the Pearl Street project, parking
was not allowed on either side of Granger Street. When Granger
Street opened for parking it was switched to the east side of
Granger Street at the request of the schools and residents. A
copy of a letter from James E. Knapp, Principal, Granville
Elementary School is attached as part of these minutes.
The Mayor' s Report for the month of September was presented and reviewed. Councilmember Rader noted number of citations on page three of the report a for weaving, and asked for the definition of that violation. Manager Plunkett he didn' t remember how that section of the Granville Traffic Code read but would check on the particulars of that specific violation. Vice Mayor Morrow commented that the "weaving"charge is a valid one issued when someone is driving erratically. Following review, the Clerk was directed to file the report. A copy of that report is attached as part of these minutes.
The Manager' s Report for the month of September was presented and reviewed. During review, Councilmember Malcuit asked about the Burg Street water main project, and asked if it was true that trees had to be removed. Manager Plunkett said it was either the trees or the brick, and no more than three rows of brick were lost. The trees are being cared for and will be replaced. Following review, Councilmember Rader moved to approve the Manager' s Report. Motion seconded by Councilmember Hughes. Motion mcainruriteeds.. A copy of that report is attached as part of these
