Calvin K. Prine, 8 Sheppard Place, spoke to the issue of
sewewr/ater capacity fees first proposed in Ordinances 109-2 and
11-92. Mr. Prine said he wasn't against developers, but was
against reducing the capacity fees originally proposed. He felt

homeowners whereas the Village could only recover their costs by
increasing user fees to current rate payers.

Welsh Hills School
The Welsh Hills School Administration sent a letter to the
Village Offices requesting permission to remove approximately 85
feet of trees in the right-of-way starting at the northwest
corner of their property and proceeding east (a reduced copy of
the tax map depicting the location of their property is attached
as part of these minutes). The property is located on the
southside of NewarkG- ranville Road. The purpose of the request
was to enable them to move the old Munson House to their
property.
Manager Plunkett stated that representatives from the Welsh
Hills School were to be at the meeting to explain their request.
Action on the request was deferred until representatives
from the school can attend a Village Council Meeting and present
a convincible argument as to why the Village Council should grant their request to remove the trees.
South Main/ Elm Street Intersection
A letter was received from Al Davison, 224 South Cherry Street
copy attached)s,uggesting that the Village Council Street & Sidewalks Committee reassess what might be done to reduce the
safety hazard(s) at the intersection of South Main and Elm. Mr. Davison felt when traffic densities increase the intersection
would become more troublesome'.
Manager Plunkett explained that this particular intersection had been discussed by previous members of Council, but, no pressing need had been seen. Mr. Plunkett said he would request that ODOT do a traffic study on that intersection if Council directs him to do so. He explained that approximately four years ago the Village chose not to go with ODOT' s offer to pave South Main Street because of the restrictions such as eliminating parking on both sides of South Main Street, and one or more trees would have to removed rather than installing a traffic light. Consensus of Village Council Was not to request a traffic asttudthyaftroimnteOrDsOeTcutinolens.s there would be a need for traffic devices 1
