Tree City -USA Award
Marc Brockman, representing the Village of Granville, attended
the annual Tree City USA Awards ceremony held at Muirfield in
Dublin, Ohio. At the ceremony, the Village was named Tree City
USA. Mr. Brockman felt the award came about because of the
Granville Improvement Board' s commitment in designating trees their priority as for the past three years; the survey of existing
shade trees in the Village (started by the Street Department);
the Garden Club Memorial Tree Fund, and; the establishment of
Arbor Day by proclamation.
Mr. Brockman presented to the Village a Tree City USA Flag
to fly on Arbor Day, two signs to be placed at the main entrances into the Village and a plague.
Mayor Eisenberg thanked Mr. Brockman and the Improvement Board for their efforts.

Those who spoke in opposition to the ordinance were:
Richard Salvage, who asked for an explanation of the
ordinance. He felt the proposed fees were extreme.
Manager Plunkett explained that it was a shifting of the
burden for expansion of the system to new customers.
Herb Murphy said the charges as proposed would increase the
fee for a 3/4"water tap from $500 to $2500 which represented a
518%increase. He felt the increases as proposed were too big of
a jump all at once, and would create an imposition to the home
buyer. Mr. Murphy asked village Council to consider more of a
gradual increase similar to Columbus, who raises their capacity
tap) fees by a set formula of 15%annually.
With no further public comment offered the public hearing
closed. Action on this ordinance was held for Old Business.
Ordinance No. 11-92 -An Ordinance To Amend Section 921.04(c) Of
The Code Of Ordinances Of The Village Of Granville Establishing
Sewer Regulations And Charges And To Repeal Existing Section
921.04(c).

Ordinance No. 12-92 -An Ordinance To Amend Sections Of The Code
Of Ordinances Of The Village Of Granville Establishing Zoning
Regulations And To Repeal Existing Sections Of The Code Of
Ordinances.
Roger Kessler, spoke to the sign code section of the
proposed zoning ordinance. He had taken pictures of existing
signs in the Village which do not comply with the existing sign
code, and fewer in the proposed new sign code. He distributed
those pictures to members of Council. He expressed concern about
the sign code section saying specifically (without question),
what the set back requirements were. Mr. Kessler also expressed
concern for new businesses coming into the Village and not
knowing what to do as far as signs.
Mayor Eisenberg stated the intent of Village Council and the
Granville Planning Commission (GPC) was to make the new sign code
more restrictive. Further, the decision was made to catch as many
things in the sign code that needed fixing, and then, if the GPC
finds something wrong they can recommend to Village Council the
need for amendments.
Mayor Eisenberg said to Mr. Kessler that it would be helpful
to the Village Council and the Granville Planning Commission if
he would put his comments and concerns about the sign code down
in written form and submit them to the Village Manager.
