Resolution No. 93-44, " A Resolution To Amend Pay Classifications And Salary Rates For The Several Departments Of The Village Of Granville," was introduced, read in full, and moved for adoption by Councilmember Montgomery. Seconded by Vice Mayor Marshall. Councilmember Vance stated that it was his understanding that the entire village staff would be receiving a salary step increase except for three employees who have Village of Granville Council Meeting Minutes Decemberl, 1993 Page 3 reached the top of the salary/ wage scale. Mr. Vance stated that he assumed that the three employees at the top of the wage/ salary schedule do an excellent job or they would not be at the top of the pay scale. Mr. Vance stated that it seems to be unfair to those three employees when all other village employees will receive a raise. Councilmember Garrett stated that when the wage/ salary schedule was revised, this problem was suppose to be taken care of. Mayor Eisenberg stated that if Council assumes that the village employees in the top range of the salary scale must receive a salary increase, it makes the wage/salary schedule meaningless. Mayor Eisenberg stated that there is a salary range for each position in the village which represents the value of that position. Mayor Eisenberg stated that if Council assumes that no employee can reach the top range of the salary schedule, Council should do away with the schedule. Councilmember Vance stated that he disagreed that the top classification on the Wage/Salary schedule represented the maximum worth of an employee. Mr. Vance stated that he had a suggestion for the three employees at the top range of the wage/salary schedule. Mr. Vance stated that the three employees should receive an incentive payment equal to 1 %of their salary per quarter payable on the 6th, 12th, 18th, and 24th pay periods, contingent upon that their work performance is satisfactory according to the Village Manager and that they are still employed full time on those pay dates. Councilmember Garrett stated that in many companies employees reach the top level of the pay scale and can't receive a raise without a promotion. Mrs. Garrett stated that there is nothing you can do about an employee who is maxed out on the salary scale. Mayor Eisenberg stated that it is impossible to draw parallels with private industries. Councilmember Montgomery asked when the wage/salary scale was established? Mayor Eisenberg stated that the company hired to develop the wage/salary schedule for the village worked on the assumption that there is a maximum worth to each position. Mayor Eisenberg stated that quite a few positions moved up substantially a few years ago when the schedule was revised. Councilmember Freytag stated that he agreed with Mayor Eisenberg and Councilmember Garrett. Councilmember Vance stated that he didn't believe that the consultant who developed the wage/salary schedule said that there was a maximum worth to each position. Mayor Eisenberg stated that the practices in cost of living increases maybe what Council needs to reexamine. Mayor Eisenberg stated that he is not comfortable in making cost of living increases upon a Consumer Index study. Village of Granville Council Meeting Minutes Decemberl, 1993 Page 4 Councilmember Vance stated that there are three village employees who are not being treated as equal as the other employees. Mr. Vance stated that he would like to see something done about it. Mr. Vance stated that if something is going to be done, it should be a part of Resolution No. 93-44. Councilmember Vance moved to amend Resolution 93-44 adding a new section which would include the names of the three employees not receiving a step increase stating that the Village will pay incentives in 1994 equaling 1 %of their total salary payable on the 6th, 12th,18th, and 24th pay periods contingent upon that their work performance is acceptable to the village manger and that they are employed full time on the dates payable. Mr. Vance stated that it should be clearly noted that this is not a village policy and it may or may not be considered again next year. Vice Mayor Marshall seconded. Mayor Eisenberg stated that in his opinion, he did not think the incentives were the right thing to do but he would vote for it because he didn't want to send a message to those employees that they are not worth consideration. Councilmember Garrett and Councilmember Montgomery disagreed with Mayor Eisenberg. Show of hands vote: Vance yes, Marshall yes, Freytag no, Garrett no, Montgomery no, Eisenberg no. Two yes votes, four no votes. Motion defeated. Resolution No. 93-44 was adopted as written. (Councilmember Vance voted against Resolution No. 93-44.)

Finance Director Shirley Robertson stated that the village doesn't give the money directly to the Sinnett House, Recreation Commission and the cemetery. Ms. Robertson stated that they submit bills to the village and the village pays the bills for them up to the amount budgeted. Councilmember Freytag stated that he did not see any money budgeted for sludge holding facilities. Utilities Director Joe Hickman stated that the village has sludge digestion review plans. Mr. Hickman stated that the other money wasn't budgeted yet because he wasn't sure how to approach it yet. Mr. Hickman stated that next year there would be some money in the Capital Improvement Fund but not nearly enough. Manager Plunkett stated that the village could bond the project when they decided to do it. Manager Plunkett stated that what the village is going to do hasn't been decided. Manager Plunkett stated that the Utilities Committee proposed that the village spend $ 5,000 in another engineering study. Mr. Plunkett stated that he was in disagreement with that request. Mr. Plunkett stated that was the expressed will of Council and he has received several engineering proposals. Councilmember Vance stated that the he has reservations as to what needs to be built. Councilmember Vance stated that the time table set is by federal mandate. Mr. Vance stated that for the last couple of years in the budget process, his opinion was that sewer rates should be increased a little so you won't see a large increase later. Mr, Vance stated that this construction adds to that, a small increase means a small jump on what the village can do. Manager Plunkett stated that the village has money set aside for a down payment on whatever the village decides to do. Mr. Plunkett stated that the Sewage Fund is used for operating expenses. Mr. Plunkett stated that in his opinion, the funds in the sewage fund should be used solely for operating expenses. Mr. Plunkett suggested raising the debt service rate so that debt service will be somewhat reduced. Councilmember Vance stated that he agreed that the sewer fund should be reserved for operating expenses however, it is smart policy to ease into a rate increase 2 little by little unstead of having one big increase. Mr. Vance stated that more items will come up besides that project that the village will need funds for. Manager Plunkett stated that because of things Council has done like capacity fees, the village is at a level that it can pay a large down payment for the service. Councilmember Vance stated that the village owed it to the south side of State Route 16 to get sewer service out there which will take a significant amount of money. Manger Plunkett stated that the village will probably take out a note for the construction period then bond it off. Mr. Plunkett stated that the village had done the same thing several years ago with the booster station. Councilmember Vance asked if the engineering money would come out to the sewer funds? Joe Hickman stated that he has money set aside for sewer improvements. Manger Plunkett stated that every new home adds another $ 1, 000 to the account. Mr. Plunkett stated that 27 homes were built this year. Mr. Plunkett stated that with interest rates what they are, and the Erinwood and Bryn Du construction, he doesn't see that number dropping. Mayor Eisenberg stated that he agreed to a large extent with Councilmember Vance. Mayor Eisenberg stated that Council would not necessarily be easing the shock of a large increase, the capital needs in the future are going to happen and it makes since to raise the rates. Manager Plunkett stated that he would prepare a sewer increase ordinance. Councilmember Vance stated that the sidewalk fund is $7,000 over and above what is anticipated to be spent. Mr. Vance asked what happened to the 25,000 a year that is suppose to go into that account?Mr. Vance stated that the Council has been talking about pathways and bikeways but the way the sidewalk account is budgeted, there is not any money for anything else. Manager Plunkett stated that with Bob Kent building Bryn Du IV and the Murphy's ready to build sidewalks on Newark-Granville Road the village wouldn't need more money than what is in that account. Mr. Vance stated that would leave the village no money if any new projects were to be started. Mr. Vance suggested obtaining another $ 25,000 for the sidewalk account. Mr. Freytag stated that he was in favor of increasing the Road Improvement Fund. Councilmember Shulman stated that the village is assuming that they will be getting other money from grants to help with the sidewalks. Manger Plunkett stated that the village is trying to obtain grant moneys but if the village is denied, we will still have money to complete the projects. Councilmember Shulman stated that the village might want to spend the budgeted money elsewhere if the grant goes through. Councilmember Herman stated that there is $13,000 budgeted for a new police cruiser. Mr. Herman stated that the residents of Granville would probably like to sidewalks before they would see a new police cruiser. Councilmember Freytag stated that the there is $63,000 budgeted for the Council chamber renovations. Mr. Freytag stated that was a project he felt that could be delayed or eliminated. 3 Councilmember Vance stated that he would like to see the village delay the Council Chamber renovations and set aside $15,000 in a Reserve Fund. Mr. Vance stated that he hasn't seen an overall plan of what the municipal building is going to look like in 5 to 10 years. Mr. Vance stated that he is a believer in having overall pan before spending any money. Manager Plunkett stated that the building is going to look the same as it does now, except the council chambers. Manager Plunkett stated that someone five years from now will probably have a different opinion than this Council and staff. Vice Mayor Marshall stated that the current facility isn't that bad, he agreed with Councilmember Vance. Mayor Eisenberg suggested deleting the $63,000 for council renovations and adding $ 15,000 to the Building Reserve Fund for the project to be completed at a later date. Mayor Eisenberg suggested the village could buy a new table for council. Vice Mayor Marshall stated that he would be in favor of putting the rest of the money in the sidewalk fund. Mayor Eisenberg suggested putting $ 15,000 in to the building reserve fund and at least $ 25,000 into the sidewalk fund. Councilmember Vance suggested putting $ 25,000 into the sidewalk fund, 23,000 into the road improvement fund and $15,000 into the building reserve fund. Councilmember Freytag stated that he would like to see the sidewalk fund have some more money but, he has some problem with it having more money than the Road Improvement Fund. Councilmember Shulman stated that State Route 661 is scheduled for improvements in 1994 which would include the downtown and part of South Main Street. Councilmember Vance asked if the village received ISTEA funds, could some of the sidewalk money be transferred to the Road Improvement Fund? Mayor Eisenberg stated that the sidewalk fund was based on not getting the ISTEA funds. Mayor Eisenberg stated that council could have a commitment that if the village receives the ISTEA money, the additional money could be transferred to the Road Improvement Fund. Councilmember Herman asked if some money should be set aside for Granville Solvents in case something needed to be done rapidly? Manager Plunkett stated that he didn't think that was necessary. Mr. Plunkett stated that it is very much in study phase and likely to be a super fund which USEPA would fund. Mayor Eisenberg stated that a lot of money has been spent to date on Granville Solvents. Mayor Eisenberg stated that there is no way Granville could come up with money to fund the entire project. Councilmember Freytag stated that the village has received a letter from Mike DeWine stating that if anyone has concerns they should voice them to him. Mr. Freytag stated that council should tell him we need help on Granville solvents. Mr. Freytag stated that he felt that was a good project to put him on. Mr. Freytag stated that the meeting was at 3:30 tomorrow at the County Administration Building. Councilmember Garrett and Mayor Eisenberg stated that they would attend, 4 Councilmember Shulman asked if the new street lighting was going to be installed at no expense to the village? Manager Plunkett stated that the village pays a contract rate based on the public tariff. Mr. Plunkett stated that currently, the village pays approximately $ 100 per light per year. Mr. Plunkett stated that the contract expired last May. Councilmember Vance asked how this street lighting project phased into the Granville Business and Professional Association (GBPA)and what they proposed for downtown street lighting? Manager Plunkett stated it does not tie in at all. Councilmember Vance stated that in his opinion council should help support the GBPA in historical lighting fixtures for the downtown. Mr. Vance stated that he thought Council could find $ 5,000 to help the GBPA out in the downtown historical lighting. Councilmember Freytag suggested matching the GBPA's funds up to $5,000 a year. Mr. Freytag stated that maybe this would give them some incentive. Councilmember Vance stated that he would be happy to give $ 5,000 from the sidewalk fund. Councilmember Garrett stated that there are a number of people who say they would rather have sidewalks than historical lighting. Councilmember Freytag asked if the personnel changes for the assistant manager and planner were just name changes or a financial commitment? Manager Plunkett stated that it was both. Mr. Plunkett stated that the assistant manager would also sever as the utilities director. Mr. Plunkett stated that Mr. Hickman has been acting in that capacity and would be loaded up with more work next year. Mr. Plunkett stated that Mr. Hickman has done an excellent job. Mr. Plunkett stated that he was grooming Mr. Hickman in case something happens to him. Mr. Plunkett stated that his work load was increasing and having a back up is a good idea. Manager Plunkett stated that because of the things being asked of Mr. Tailford like the bike path plan, the village is using him far beyond the position of a zoning inspector. Mr. Plunkett stated that he would become salary with the planner position and therefor, the village would own him a lot more than now. Mr. Plunkett stated that Mr. Tailford had a Master's Degree from Ohio State University and had the ability to deal with things going on. Councilmember Freytag asked what the financial commitment is in dollars, and what about the positions that are going to become vacant? Manger Plunkett explained that the planner moves up in the wage schedule from grade 7 to grade 8. Mr. Plunkett stated that Mr. Tailford would go from $11. 11 an hour to $26,054 a year as a planner. Councilmember Freytag asked if Mr. Tailford was still going to do the zoning inspector job? Manager Plunkett answered yes, but some day the village will need a zoning inspector. Mr. Freytag asked if the assistant manager would still serve as the utilities director? Manager Plunkett answered yes. Mr. Freytag asked if the 2. 8 increase in salary would be added on top of these salaries? 5 Manger Plunkett stated that the 2.8%cost of living increase was his recommendation. Mr. Plunkett stated that the Personnel Committee recommended that the 2.8%cost of living increase be modified to 1.5%Ma.nager Plunkett stated that the biggest asset Granville had was the people working for the village. Manager Plunkett stated that he thought the 2.8%cost of living increase was appropriate. Mayor Eisenberg stated that the average automatic pay step increase is approximately 6%wh,ich is not out of line with national average. Manager Plunkett stated that the salary step is based on performance. Manager Plunkett stated that the village does not give everyone a step increase. Mr. Plunkett stated that he strongly believes that he is no better than his employees. Mr. Plunkett stated that the employees of the village are the people who make him look good. Councilmember Vance stated that he agrees with the capabilities of the staff of Granville. Mr. Vance stated that the staff automatically goes up a grade in pay which is about a 4.5%to 5%increase. Mr. Vance stated that increase is higher than the national increase. Mayor Eisenberg stated that there was money budgeted for a new police cruiser. Mayor Eisenberg asked what the roster was with the cruisers? Police Chief Steve Cartnal stated that he would like to purchase a new cruiser and get rid of the 89 ford. Chief Cartnal stated that he would like to keep the chevy as a back up. After a discussion, Council recommended selling two cruisers and buying a new cruiser.

And To Repeal Section 171. 19 (c)And (d)Of Chapter 171 Of The Codified Ordinances
Of Granville, Ohio, Establishing Income Tax Regulation Charges And To Repeal
Existing Sections Of Said Codified Ordinances"was reintroduced, title read, and moved
for adoption by Councilmember Freytag. Seconded by Councilmember Vance.
Councilmember Freytag stated that in Section 171. 14(a),the interest rate is
being increased from 1 2/ %to 1 %Mr.. Freytag stated that he is opposed to that
increase. Mr. Freytag stated he is opposed to Section 171. 14 (b)( 1),where it states "if
such tax is paid between the seventh and twelfth months after such tax became due;
and a penalty of four percent per month, or fraction thereof the amount of the unpaid
tax."Mr. Freytag stated that he opposed that because this is a civil penalty and not a
criminal penalty. Mr. Freytag stated that he felt that penalty was excessive. Mr. Freytag
stated that if there was a case where a person couldn't pay because they did not have
the money, this would be excessive. Mr. Freytag stated that if a person intentionally
evades taxes, that is a criminal penalty which should be dealt with through Mayor's
Court. Mr. Freytag stated that in his opinion, the Village should increase the criminal
penalty and deal intentional evaders through Mayor's Court. Mr. Freytag stated that he
supported the4%penalty for intentional evaders. Councilmember Freytag stated he
would support a maximum of2%for the penalty.
Mayor Eisenberg stated that the total penalty is relatively " small change." Mr.
Eisenberg stated that the penalties were to get attention of delinquent tax payers.
Law Director Hurst stated that there should be recognition in the code for the
persons with the inability to pay income tax.
Councilmember Freytag stated that he agrees with Section 171. 14 (b)2(),
however in his opinion, the 1 %interest plus4%penalty is excessive. Councilmember
4
Freytag stated that the interest can remain the same but the penalty should be
decreased.
Law Director Hurst stated that Section 171. 14 (b)( 1)exists currently in the code
and is not an amendment.
Councilmember Freytag stated that he would like to see an ordinance to
increase the criminal penalty.
Mayor Eisenberg agreed with Mr. Freytag stating that there is no real leverage.
Law Director Hurst stated that he recalls with out reading the code, when a
return has been filed in good faith, the tax commissioner can waive penalties and/or
interest for dire circumstances. Mr. Hurst stated that he would have to read the code
again be certain.
Councilmember Vance suggested adopting the now as it is and adopting another
ordinance later that would deal with Councilmember Freytag's uncertainties.
Roll call vote on Ordinance No. 29-93: Freytag yes, Herman yes, Vance yes,
Shulman yes, Garrett yes, Marshall yes, Mayor Eisenberg yes . Seven yes votes.
Ordinance No. 29-93 was duly adopted.

renewed. Mr. Davis stated that the rebuilding is now in process and moving towards
Granville. Mr. Davis stated that the franchise was simply a right to exist and was a non
exclusive franchise. Mr. Davis stated that other cable companies can come into the
village even if Granville has a franchise agreement with Dimension. Mr. Davis stated
that the franchise simply guarantees a return on investments for Dimension.
Mr. Davis stated that the new super highway system would provide new services
as they come available. Mr. Davis stated that the franchise simply was saying
Dimension has the right to be in Granville and provide services. Mr. Davis stated that a
major concern for Dimension was the franchise rebuild crews are here working and are
almost finished with Newark. Mr. Davis stated that Dimension would like to have the
crews in Granville. Mr. Davis stated that he has spoke with Stew Dyke who is on the
franchise committee about coming to a decision more quickly.
Mr. Denny stated that the best time to complete the required construction is now
when the leaves are off the trees. Mr. Denny stated that there is some underground
construction tliat needs to be done later in March. Mr. Denny stated that Dimension

completing the construction in Newark now, and Dimension Cable could proceed along

Sidewalks
Councilmember Vance recommended a larger sidewalk budget in 1994.
Manager Plunkett stated that the West Broadway sidewalk extension project is
scheduled for 1994, West College Street Improvements, State Route 661 and the next
year Summit Street. Manager Plunkett stated that a lot of the streets would be tore up
and the village would have a lot of impassable roads. Manager Plunkett stated that the
village has not spent a lot of its own money for these improvements. Manger Plunkett
stated he had doubled the money in the Road Improvement Reserve Fund so that the
6
1
village will have the money to do streets the following year when the village can't get
funding. Manager Plunkett stated that in 1994, council had a full plate.
Councilmember Vance stated that there are different groups wanting to build
different pieces of pathways. Mr. Vance stated that the village is seeing things on a
piece meal plan. Mr. Vance stated that if you start building without proper planning and
standards you are not going to get a unified look. Mr. Vance stated that the village
currently has no standards for a bike path.
Councilmember Garrett stated that the village has standards for 5 foot sidewalks
and nothing is being built.
Councilmember Freytag stated that the council needed a deadline for resolving
all the issues so in the spring the village can begin building.
Councilmember Garrett stated that the shortest way to get to downtown from
east Granville is to go down Newark Granville Road.
Councilmember Vance stated that Council needed to decide if that was going to
be a five foot sidewalk of a bikeway. Mr. Vance stated that the village needed to design
the plans in order to get funding.
Councilmember Garrett stated that the Murphy's part will be five feet concrete
sidewalks unless Council asks them to build an asphalt palhway or something else.
Councilmember Vance stated that in his opinion the village needed to do the
planning first.
Councilmember Freytag stated that council needed to attack the problem. Mr.
Freytag stated that council needed to first discuss the basic issues and go on. Mr.
Freytag stated that Council can't go on trying to resolve five issues at once.
Manger Plunkett stated that the village zoning inspector has his planning degree
from Ohio State University. Mr. Plunkett stated that the zoning inspector's position is
proposed to be changed to Village Planner in the 1994 budget. Mr. Plunkett stated that
Doug Tailford could develop a plan for sidewalks that council could critique, that the village way wouldn't have to spend a large amount of money on the plans and things
could be done in house. Mr. Plunkett stated that he would first have to talk to Mr.
Tailford before he commented him to doing such a project. Mr. Plunkett stated that if
the zoning inspector does that task, the position would have to become village planner
because a zoning inspector would never be asked to do a job like that. Mr. Plunkett
stated that it is not necessary to spend $40,000 for a set of plans when the village has personnel capable in house.
Councilmember Freytag asked if the sidewalk plan could be ready in thirty days?
Manager Plunkett stated that he wanted to talk to Doug Tailford first and will get back to Council.
Councilmember Shulman slated that in his opinion Burg Street and Cedar Street
were much more of a concern for sidewalks than West Broadway and NewarkG- ranville Road. Mr. Shulman stated that there is no place to get away from traffic on those roads.
Councilmember Freytag stated that he had reviewed the letter from Jerry Brems concerning the Paul Kent filling in the flood plain. Mr. Freytag stated that the letter is not asking Mr. Kent to remove that fill, it just states that no permit has been issued. Mr.
1
Freytag stated Kent that he would like to see a letter written to Mr..Brems requesting Mr. to remove the fill.
Mayor Eisenberg questioned if it was the Council's place to write the letter or the Township Trustees?
Councilmember Freytag stated that the point is no permit has been issued and a lot of filling has taken place.
Manager Plunkett stated that he would relay Council's comments to Jerry Brems. Council agreed to keep on top of the subject.
Manager Plunkett stated that the service department dumped two truck loads of fill at that site before he had got the word to them not to.

Bill&Flo HoffmanFlo Hoffman of 508 West College Street stated that she and her husband exit from their home by turning onto Burg Street From Thresher Street. Mrs. Hoffman stated that because of the speed at which drivers come off Burg Street, they often find a car on their rear bumper. Mrs. Hoffman stated that since the additional exit to Dension has been installed, it is hard to see there. Mrs. Hoffman asked if Council would consider placing a stop sign or a flasher there to warn people of what is coming up. Manager Plunkett stated that he is familiar with that intersection and he doesn't see it quite the same way. Manager Plunkett stated that he had had a police officer watch at that intersection, and rather than making a knee jerk action, the police are going to keep an eye on the intersection and make a fair assessment. Manager Plunkett stated that there hasn't been an accident there and the police have been instructed to report anything they find. Mrs. Hoffman stated that she would appreciate any attention to that intersection. COMMITTEE REPORTS Councilmember Shulman reported on the Planning Commission's October 18 meeting. At that meeting, the items of business were mostly temporary signs. Mr. Shulman stated that the Zoning Inspector made an effort to have all temporary signs come before the Planning Commission. Mr. Shulman stated that one temporary sign was granted, one was tabled, and one was recommended to the village manager because it involved the median on Broadway. Also a business sign in the IGA area was discussed. Mr. Shulman stated that another issue discussed was the Sheppardson Condominiums which were approved in 1989. Mr. Shulman stated that the developers are now seeking approval from the village engineer for 11 new buildings. Mr. Shulman stated that the new buildings would rap around the current existing buildings closest to the bike path. Mr. Shulman stated that most of the woods between the condos and the Granville apartments would be cut down. Mr. Shulman stated that the architect and developer would be happy to come to Council to give the same presentation if Council wishes. Councilmember Garrett questioned when the condos were approved? Manager Plunkett stated that they'd received initial development Commission / Village Council approval in the mid -1970's. Manager Plunkett stated that in 1979 Shurtz was denied permission for the rest, but Licking County Common Pleas Court ordered the village to allow their completion. Councilmember Garrett asked if the plans were the same ones as were originally submitted? Manager Plunkett stated that they were similar with a lesser number of buildings. Councilmember Garret stated that it was her understanding that if you do not follow the original plans, you had to go back to the Planning Commission. Vice Mayor Marshall reported on the Utilities Committee meeting. The Committee discussed the EPA sludge holding requirements. Mr. Marshall stated that he will make a recommendation to council concerning this under old business. Councilmember Vance reported on the sign committee meeting. Mr. Vance stated that a third draft was being reviewed, a final review would be ready on October 22. Mr. Vance stated that he hopes a final copy would be on the agenda for November 3. OLD BUSINESS Ordinance No. 279- 3, A"n Ordinance Amending The Granville Zoning Ordinance And Accompanying Map Thereto, By Amending The Classification Of The Zoning District For A Certain Five Acre Parcel Of Land Described Herein And Located At 1960 Newark-Granville Road From PUD, Planned Unit Development To SBD, Suburban Business District", was reintroduced, title read and moved for adoption by Councilmember Shulman. Seconded by Vice Mayor Marshall. Councilmember Freytag asked the reasoning for permitting the zoning change now when no development plan has been submitted? Councilmember Shulman stated that SDB is appropriate for commercial development. Mr. Shulman stated that there had been changes to the SBD regulations and the rezoning was considered in the past. Mr. Shulman stated that Mr. Fackler had asked the Planning Commission saw no reason not to recommend the rezoning. Mayor Eisenberg stated that the rezoning was supported by the Master Plan. Councilmember Freytag stated that the zoning could remain PUD until a development plan is submitted. George Fackler stated that he applied for rezoning a year ago and came up with sketch plan. Mr. Fackler stated that due to fact that Council changed the guidelines of SBD he is trying to make zoning contiguous. Mr. Fackler stated that the Planning Commission had voted unanimously to approve the rezoning. Councilmember Freytag asked if Mr. Fackler had a development plan? Mr. Fackler stated that nothing is concrete at this time, however the Planning Commission did give a unanimous vote for the rezoning. Councilmember Freytag stated that he can see no reason to put forth now. Mr. Freytag asked why should the zoning be changed to SBD, and not being PCD?Mr. Freytag stated that there was some talk that Erinwood zoning should have been PCD. Mr. Freytag stated that he doesn't want to make the same mistake again, and he is just raising questions. Councilmember Garrett stated that if the zoning was changed, certain things could be built without approval. Mayor Eisenberg stated that he thought Council had resolved those issues with the changes in SBD. Councilmember Freytag stated that in PCD, one must first come to Council with a development plan, while in SBD there is more lee way to proceed. Vice Mayor Marshal stated that in SDB you can't just go build whatever you want. Councilmember Vance stated that he agreed with Councilmember Freytag. Mr. Vance stated that the Planning Commission made a recommendation, and Council should ask the Planning Commission to give the reason they are suggesting the zoning change. Manager Plunkett stated that the Planning Commission has made a formal recommendation. Councilmember Vance stated that he saw no problem asking the Planning Commission to explain to Council why that zoning is better than any other . Councilmember Vance moved to table Ordinance No. 27-93. Seconded by Councilmember Freytag. Roll call vote: Shulman yes, Garrett yes, Herman yes, Vance yes, Freytag yes Marshall yes, Mayor Eisenberg yes. Seven yes votes. Ordinance No. 27-93 was tabled.

Sconded by Councilmember Vance. Mar'iger Plunkett stated that there was a recommendation from the Zoning Inspector that the sidewalks should be completed before the approval. Manager Plunkett stated that he had compromised with the Murphys and suggests sidewalks should be completed on one side of the road. Frank Murphy of the Murphy Group stated that the sidewalks will get broken with heavy trucks driving over them during construction. Mr. Murphy stated that it makes more sense to put the sidewalks in last. Manager Plunkett stated that the Murphy's had committed in a letter to delay the final coat of asphalt for a year, which makes a lot of sense. Manager Plunkett stated that the traffic islands in the cul-de-sacs will be taken out a year from now if Council is of the opinion they should be removed. Councilmember Shulman stated that Council should get some timing on the sidewalks completion. Mr. Shulman stated that some of the lots may never get filled, therefor you would have "blanks"in the sidewalk. Councilmember Freytag asked what would be the point of installing sidewalks now if they are going to get "wrecked". Councilmember Shulman stated that Council should add Section five to the ordinance which would state that sidewalks should be completed in five years on one side of the road. Councilmember Vance stated that the time limit should be five years after passage of the ordinance. Councilmember Vance stated that the amendment it should read "sidewalks will be completed on one side of Galway Drive, Longford Drive, and Kerry Court within five years after passage of the ordinance." Roll call vote on the amending of Ordinance No. 28-93 by adding Section V: Freytag yes, Vance yes, Herman yes, Shulman yes, Garrett yes, Marshall Yes, Mayor Eisenberg yes. Seven yes votes.

Councilmember Vance moved to remove Ordinance No. 23-93 from the table. Seconded by Councilmember Freytag. Mayor Eisenberg stated that Manager Plunkett and he had met with Herb Murphy, representing the Condo Association. Mayor Eisenberg stated that they had reached an agreement. Mayor Eisenberg stated that Donegal Drive will be extended to Galway Drive within three years, and the condo association will close Shannon Lane at their own expense. Mayor Eisenberg stated that he did not think that this ordinance was needed when considered with the letter received. Councilmember Herman stated that the condo association could be made up very differently later, and he was wondering if the agreement would still stick. Law Director Hurst stated that a man who represented to speak on behalf of the group does not distort power and authority given in so doing. Councilmember Freytag asked if the Northtowne Properties /Erinwood Condominium letter could be accepted in a resolution? Roll call vote on Ordinance No. 23-93: Freytag no, Vance no, Herman no, Garrett no, Shulman no, Marshall no, Mayor Eisenberg no. Seven no votes, Ordinance No. 23-93 was defeated. Mayor Eisenberg stated that Manager Plunkett would write Resolution No. 93-40 accepting the letter of October 15, 1993 from Northtowne Properties agreeing to connect Donegal Drive to Kildare Street and Galway Drive, and to close Shannon Lane. Councilmember Garrett moved to adopt Resolution 93-40. Seconded by Councilmember Freytag. Resolution No. 93-40 was adopted. (Councilmember Shulman voted against Resolution No. 93-40) Resolution No. 93-34, " A Resolution Authorizing The Village Manager To Enter Into An Agreement With The Licking County Commissioners For The Confinement And Support Of Prisoners", was introduced, read in full and moved for adoption by Garrett. Seconded by Vice Mayor Marshall. Law Director Hurst stated that in his opinion, the proposed agreement does not resolve any medical issues with which Granville is currently struggling. Mr. Hurst stated that the contract indicates under section 4, that the village agrees to pay a physician for any cost incurred by said prisoner and section 5 further obligates village. Mr. Hurst stated that the disagreement has been with what constitutes a prisoner of the Village of Granville. Mr. Hurst stated that the proposed contract doesn't answer the question. Mr. Hurst stated that Granville does have an obligation to provide for the care of prisoners. Vice Mayor Marshall questioned what would happen if Granville did not sign the contract. Mr. Hurst stated that under Ohio Revised Code Section 1905.35 the commissioners have the authority to say no contract, no housing, take your prisoner elsewhere. Mr. Hurst stated that the statuatories require Granville to make accommodation for only prisoners of the municipality. Councilmember Freytag stated that he doesn't favor any contract which will not resolve current problems. Law Director Hurst stated that if Granville doesn't sign the contract, the county can deny taking any of Granville's prisoners and Granville would have to build a jail or find an alternative facility which to take their prisoners. After a discussion, Vice Mayor Marshall moved to table Resolution No. 93-34. Seconded by Councilmember Garrett. Motion carried. Resolution No. 93-34 was tabled. Vice Mayor Marshall stated that the Utilities Committee had had a lengthy discussion concerning EPA sludge holding regulations. Mr. Marshall stated that the Committee concluded that the Village is headed down an expensive road. Vice Mayor Marshall stated that the committee recommends spending $ 5,000 for an other engineering firm to give Granville an overview of the probable costs involved. Councilmember Freytag asked if the study could be accomplished for that amount of money? Vice Mayor Marshall stated that he thought it could be done with $ 5,000. Councilmember Herman stated that in the recycling ordinance there was a part where the Village would pay the difference between the cost of normal items compared to recycled items for a period of two years. Councilmember Herman stated that the legislation needed more work. Mayor Eisenberg asked Manager Plunkett if the Ordinance would be an administrative burden? Manger Plunkett stated that he did not think so. Manager Plunkett stated that the Village now buys recycled goods. Vice Mayor Marshall stated that he thought it was a leadership obligation. Councilmember Freytag stated that he didn't agree with paying more for a recycled item. Mr. Freytag asked if a resolution could be written stating that if it was economical, the village would buy recycled goods? Councilmember Garrett stated that the funds for this program come from tax dollars. Mrs. Garrett stated that she and Councilmember Herman are trying to encourage people to use recycled goods and create a demand for the market. Councilmember Herman stated that the ordinance could be passed with no price preference for the recycled goods. Vice Mayor Marshall stated that a resolution would do. Manger Plunkett stated that informally the policy exists today. Councilmember Herman stated that council could wait to see how the grant is moving along. Mr. Herman asked Manager Plunkett to check on that for the next meeting. Leasing of the Old Village Hall Manager Plunkett stated that he wasn't sure how Council wanted to handle making the decision. Manager Plunkett suggested having an executive session at the end of the meeting. Mayor Eisenberg stated that he didn't think it is necessary to have an executive session. Councilmember Vance requested to remain silent during the discussions. Mayor Eisenberg stated that Manger Plunkett and he had discussed this and they would like to hear views from the rest of the council. Mayor Eisenberg stated that the village had an obligation to look at the proposed uses and decide which would best serve the village, then negotiate with that party to arrive a lease agreement. Vice Mayor Marshall stated that Council needed to talk about what the village is going to get from the building. He suggested sitting down with proposers to decide what is going on. , Mayor Eisenberg suggested that perhaps detailed negotiation should be conducted by a committee. Mayor Eisenberg stated that the proposers are present tonight, and Council needs to let their views be known to proposers as to what they feel is most appropriate. Mayor Eisenberg stated that in his opinion, the rents proposed are low and they could be higher. Mayor Eisenberg stated that the capital improvements are helping the village, however he doesn't favor reduced rent in exchange. Mayor Eisenberg stated that eventually, the lessee will get the value of the improvements . Councilmember Garrett questioned what rental property goes for in Granville? Vice Mayor Marshall stated that rent varies greatly. Councilmember Freytag asked what is the square footage of the building? Manger Plunkett answered 3,600 to 3,800 feet. Mayor Eisenberg stated that Council should form a committee to interview the proposers and arrive at the best deal. Those appointed to the Committee were Vice Mayor Marshall, Councilmember Freytag, and Councilmember Garrett. NEW BUSINESS Ordinance No. 29-93, " An Ordinance To Amend Sections 171. 03 And 171. 14 And To Repeal Section 171. 19 (c)And (d)Of Chapter 171 Of The Codified Ordinances Of Granville, Ohio, Establishing Income Tax Regulation Charges And To Repeal Existing Sections Of Said Codified Ordinances"was introduced and title read by Councilmember Freytag.

Seconded by Councilmember Garrett. Motion carried. Resolution No. 93-39 was adopted. Traffic Engineering Manager Plunkett stated that when the village has a project that will affect traffic like SuperAmerica, the Village should have someone ready to review the proposals and make a recommendation as to the traffic impact. Manager Plunkett stated that the traffic engineers would be paid by the developer like what is being done now with Bird &Bull. Councilmember Vance stated that he personally would not hire an engineer that recommended Cherry Valley Road should be five lanes and Newark-Granville Road should be three lanes. Manager Plunkett explained that the engineer had said that if growth is expanded out completely, the roads would have to be widened. Manager Plunkett stated that the village needed someone to offer solutions to traffic problems and suggest ideas on how to handle traffic problems. Councilmember Freytag stated that the village needed a traffic engineer, but the question is which one. Councilmember Vance suggested that Manager Plunkett look into some other engineers. Manager Plunkett stated that he would look into it. Cable TV Committee Councilmember Freytag stated that Dimension Cable would like an answer on the franchise renewal before the franchise actually expires so that they can rebuild their lines. Mr. Freytag stated that he saw no reason why the Council could not make a decision early. Mayor Eisenberg stated that Dimension Cable would like a decision in January so that they can begin construction when the leaves were off the trees. Mayor Eisenberg stated that he too saw no reason that the decision could not be reached by the end of the year. Vice Mayor Marshall questioned how the committee was coming along.

Mayor Eisenberg stated that Council needed to deal with the condo association rather than the Murphy Group. Councilmember Shulman stated that Council has control over Phase 11. Mr. Shulman stated that without passing the legislation the Murphy's can't start Phase 11. Mayor Eisenberg read a letter from Frank Murphy to Manager Plunkett dated August 6, 1993. A copy of that letter is hereby attached as part of these minutes. Councilmember Shulman stated that closing Shannon Lane, and the completion of Donegal Drive within three years can be two different issues. Councilmember Vance questioned if deleting the section dealing with Shannon Lane and taking action on rest of the ordinance would help with Mr. Shulman's concerns. Councilmember Shulman stated that he personally would like to pursue the closing of Shannon Lane. 2 Manager Plunkett stated that Shannon Lane was built to driveway standards. Mr. Plunkett stated that the road will get "beaten to death"and the condo association will most likely end up asking for the closure of the road. Law Director Hurst questioned if the condo association had a president or representative?Mr. Hurst suggested that Council talk to the representative of the condo association or invite them to a meeting. Mayor Eisenberg stated that the majority of Council favors the closure of Shannon Lane from Newark Granville Road.

Hila Williams stated that the stop sign installed at the Cherry /Maple Street
intersection had surprised her. Mrs. Williams stated that she had spoken with a lady
who had been in an accident at that site the day before the sign was installed, and she
too, had been surprised to see the stop sign. Mrs. Williams stated that in her opinion,
the stop sign was a trap.
Manager Plunkett stated that the stop sign had been installed because of the
increased number of school children who must cross the street in that area where there
are no sidewalks. The sign also had been installed because it is difficult to see
oncoming traffic. Another reason is people don't realize that they are making a
transition from a highway to a public street. Mr. Plunkett stated that there are a number
of people who oppose the sign and a number of people who favor the sign.

OLD BUSINESSLickina County Commissioners /Prisoner Medical Bill Sheriff Billy stated that the $18,000 plus medical bill is directed to the Village of Granville for a prisoner who had been transferred to Licking Memorial Hospital. Sheriff Billy stated that the prisoner had been in violation of the Granville code. Mr. Billy stated that it was the obligation of every entity to pay prisoner medical bills and the obligation falls on the entity who put them in jail. Sheriff Billy stated that the amount due rests with Granville. Sheriff Billy stated that this prisoner was charged on April 21 for a DUI and later charged for driving under suspension under Newark's Code. Sheriff Billy stated that the Sheriff's Department just houses the prisoner. The contract between Granville and the Sheriff's Department specifies that the medical payment is the responsibility of the entity who placed the prisoner in jail. Sheriff Billy stated that he received a letter from Mr. Hurst stating that Granville has no obligation to pay the bill. Mr. Billy stated that he objected to Mr. Hurst's letter. Mr. Billy stated that there are three options for Granville: pay the bill like everyone else; contract with their own physician; or find another facility in which to house prisoners. Sheriff Billy stated that the County could not afford to pay medical bills for everyone. Councilmember Freytag asked if the surgery was an emergency?Mr. Freytag asked why a public entity would be given the medical bill if the surgery was elective? Sheriff Billy stated that was not a decision for him to make. Sheriff Billy stated that he would have to talk to the attending physician about preexisting conditions. Mr. Billy stated that if a physician orders surgery, the sheriffs department must follow through. Mr. Billy stated that if the sheriffs department denies surgery or any other medical care, they can be in trouble. Mr. Billy stated that they are obligated by law to give prisoners medical care. Mr. Freytag questioned if the surgery was serious? Sheriff Billy answered that according to the physician it was. Manager Plunkett stated that this prisoner was arrested for DUl on February 26 and sentenced to 180 days in jail with 120 days suspended. The minimum sentence for DUl is 10 days. On the sixteenth day of his sentence, the prisoner became ill. Mr. Plunkett stated that the prisoner had been sentenced in Municipal Court and not Mayor' Court. County Commissioner Don Hill stated that this discussion had gone on many times before. Sheriff Billy stated that they can't ignore doctors orders. Councilmember Freytag asked if Mr. Billy had a copy of the contract the Sheriffs Department has with the Village of Granville stating that the Village is responsible for medical bills? Sheriff Billy stated that yes he did have a copy, and a new one is going to be coming soon. 3 1 Councilmember Vance questioned whether the prisoner had medical insurance? Sheriff Billy replied that no, the prisoner did not have insurance. Sheriff Billy stated that the County and other municipalities have had to pay for a variety of medical costs that they weren't happy with. Councilmember Vance asked of he was in jail for the DUI charge? Sheriff Billy stated that the prisoner also had a citation from Newark for driving under suspension. Councilmember Vance asked if the bill could be split with Newark? Councilmember Freytag asked why the bill had to be paid solely from Granville if the prisoner had a charge from Newark? Sheriff Billy stated that Granville could fight that out with Newark. Sheriff Billy stated that he is not being cold or trying to play hard ball. Sheriff Billy stated that the medical responsibility rests in the entity that put the prisoner in jail. Councilmember Vance stated that Council is not arguing with the County, Council is trying to figure out what happened and if the bill is Granville's responsibility. Councilmember Vance stated that the Sheriffs office should split the bill between Newark and Granville. Sheriff Billy stated that would be an accounting nightmare, he would leave that up to Granville to sort out. Councilmember Vance sated that maybe Council should suggest that they will pay half of the bill if Newark pays the other half. Vice Mayor Marshall stated that Council is not clear that the bills rests in Granville's hands at this point. Law Director Hurst stated that it is the Sheriffs Department's obligation to see to it that prisoners receive immediate medical attention. Mr. Hurst stated that he would review the contract between Granville and the Sheriff's Department. Mr. Hurst stated that he had not been aware that Newark was involved.

Mr. Raker stated that they would respond to any questions Council had at this time. Councilmember Garrett stated that concern was raised by citizens in regard the purchase to of the Peck Shannon house. Mrs. Garrett stated that questions had been raised and Council wanted to know if the village had a say in this matter?Mrs. Garrett stated as Council understands, the village has no say. Councilmember Vance stated that if one referred back to the comprehensive plan, three option are available: relocate; expand; or a site station. Mr. Vance stated that he had thought when the time came that the fire department needed more space, there would be an opportunity for public input. Mr. Vance stated that it was Council's belief that this purchase of expansion may be proceeding without public input. Councilmember Freytag stated that several citizens had expressed concern if the fire department should remain in the downtown. 4 Vice Mayor Marshall stated that when Mr. Plunkett had asked for a copy of the fire department's bylaws, he was refused. Mr. Marshall stated that he realized that the fire department was a private organization, but they are funded with public monies. Mr. Marshall stated that he had heard a lot of comments from citizens of the Village about the issue. Bill Sharp of North Pearl Street stated that Council should look to the legislative authority. Mr. Sharp stated that if citizens have concerns, they should address them to the Township Trustees and not the Village Council. GVFD Attorney Art Morrow stated that citizens need to look to the proper legal authority.

Mr. Morrow stated that in 1937, Clara Sinnett White gave the GVFD the North Prospect property to the village.

Mr. Morrow stated that there had always been a member of Council on the fire department.

Mr. Morrow added that the fire department put out an annual report every year. Councilmember Garrett stated that the questions concerning the fire department came to the Village Council rather than the Township Trustees because village residents don't see themselves as part of the township. Mr. Morrow stated that the Council discusses their real estate purchases in private and the public is not entitled to comment.

Councilmember Vance stated that the public was interested in the location of the fire department. Mr. Raker stated that the comprehensive plan gives three options for the fire department, and expanding is one option. Mr. Raker stated that this is the most cost efficient way. Councilmember Vance stated that it isn't that Council is agreeing or disagreeing with the fire department, Council just feels that the public should have some input in the matter. Ron Mack stated that no matter where the fire department is located, sooner or later they will have to pass traffic. Mr. Mack stated that the fire department has not had complications yet, even on the forth of July with the road closed. Jim Dumbauld stated that he was a member of the fire department and the business association. Mr. Dumbauld stated that the location is perfect for the fire department. Mr. Dumbauld stated that if you find the fire department on the map and draw a circle around it, the fire department is in the center of their territory. Mr. Dumbauld stated that first he thought that the fire department did not need a larger station. After the fire department discussed it, Mr. Dumbauld stated that he changed his mind. Mr. Dumbauld stated that the fire department was making a good purchase. Mr. Dumbauld stated that a lot of citizens don't know what goes on at the fire department, if these citizens would come in to the station, they would get answers.

Councilmember Garrett stated that this issue has mushroomed far beyond what anyone wanted it to. Richard Mahard stated that he had recently heard that the present fire station is not capable of holding a second floor. However, today a lot of things can be done to 6 1 allow the building to have a second floor and this could be an alternative to buying the Peck Shannon House.

This will be difficult to negotiate if Donegal and Galway are not built. Manager Plunkett stated that the concern was getting the emergency equipment in. The Murphy's had not shown the cut off of Shannon Lane on their set of plans. Now people who have bought the condos may not want the closure. 1 7 1 1 Vice Mayor Marshall stated that Council can decide to close the street. If the condo association disagrees, they can come to the public hearing and voice their opinion.

Jurgen Pape stated that the Planning Commission had a good overall feeling concerning Mr. Kent's proposal. Mr. Pape stated that the Planning Commission wanted to get Councils feelings on a couple items: the proposed cul-de-sac, it will have to be longer than the allowed 500 foot, and the pathway system. Jim Bassett, designer of the new subdivision, stated that the proposed cul-desac will be approximately 700 feet. Councilmember Herman asked what the maximum number of homes would be? Jurgen Pape stated that it was 87 houses in PUD. Councilmember Herman stated that he thought that was an important matter that should be discussed before Council begins discussing other items. Mr. Pape stated that the Planning Commission has a lot of work to do yet, they just wanted to know how Council feels about the trails and the cul-de-sac before the Planning Commission further discusses the issue. Mr. Bassett stated that the cluster homes in the bottom section of the proposed subdivision will give a village green concept. Mr. Bassett stated that they wanted to create the images of green space. Councilmember Garrett questioned the lot size of the bottom homes. Mr. Bassett stated that right now they are 75 feet and a depth of 130 foot. Councilmember Garrett asked if the cul-de-sacs on top portion of the proposed subdivision were flat or steep? Mr. Bassett stated that it was a unique setting the middle cul-de-sac was flat and the top cul-de-sac was somewhat steep. Mayor Eisenberg asked if there was an emergency road to enter into the top portion of the subdivision? Mr. Bassett stated that currently there was not. Mr. Bassett stated that it would take a lot of grading to bring a road down the hill. Councilmember Shulman stated that Council needed to discuss who would own and maintain the pathway system. Councilmember Herman asked how long it would take before all the lots in the proposed subdivision were full? Mr. Kent stated that it would take approximately 15 to 20 years. Mr. Kent stated that he did not see a high demand at the present time. Mayor Eisenberg stated that Council needed an indication and maintain the pathway as to who will own system. Manager Plunkett stated at the present time the developer should handle both the parks and the pathway system. Mr. Pape asked if the Planning Commission and Mr. Kent was o"n the right track"with the proposed subdivision? 1 Village of Granville Council Meeting Minutes September 1, 1993 Page 3 Councilmember Vance stated that Bryn Du does not have sidewalks. Council has spent time trying to get money funded for a bikeway or pathway system. Mr. Vance stated that he thought the pathway system was an excellent idea.

Mr. Huey stated that the Planning Commission would be sure something is put in as an emergency road. Mayor Eisenberg asked if the Planning Commission had gotten a sense of what council thought of the plan? Mr. Kent stated that he felt that he was in the right direction although there are obstacles that he will have to work through. Mayor Eisenberg thanked Mr. Kent for his presentation.

Page 4Ben Mason, 37 Donald Ross Drive, was present to comment on the Broadway crosswalk. Mr. Mason stated that he has made the observation that high density vehicles, such as vans and trucks park close to the crosswalk making it difficult to see pedestrians in the crosswalk. Mr. Mason stated that an alternative would be to not permit high profile vehicles to park in the front of the crosswalk on either side. Mr. Mason stated that it would help to have the police present in that area to eliminate the speeders, multiple U-turns, and jay walkers. Mr. Mason stated that all these factors add to the problems at the crosswalk. Karen Frasca of 123 West Broadway, stated that she was in opposition of the neon "Cinema"sign being placed in a residential area. Ms. Frasca stated that she was asking Council to not permit a neon sign in a residential area. Ms. Frasca stated that if the sign was approved, there would be a potential for more requests for neon signs. Doug Frasca of 123 West Broadway, stated that he was very much against having a neon sign in a residential area. Mr. Frasca stated that he had a letter from the Schuyler's and would like the opportunity to read the letter to Council. (The Schuyler's were in opposition of the sign) Jon Bridge of 516 West Broadway stated that he would like to comment on the speeding in the area of his home. Mr. Bridge stated that motorists drive very fast down West Broadway creating a dangerous situation. Numerous school children cross Broadway to catch the school bus. Mr. Bridge stated that police presence in that area would be helpful. Mayor Eisenberg stated that the plans for the West Broadway sidewalk include a crossing in that area. Mayor Eisenberg stated the new crossing should have an impact on speeding in the area. Mr. Bridge stated that he thought the new stop sign installed at the Cherry Street intersection was a great idea. Mr. Bridge stated in regards to the Denison neon "cinema"sign, his parents live in a historic village that has neon signs. Mr. Bridge stated that the quality of the neighborhood is not brought down by neon signs. Mr. Bridge stated that no houses in the area are facing the cinema building except the president's house. Mr. Bridge stated that he hoped the Council would vote in favor of the sign. Bob Seith of 116 Locust was present to speak for the neon " cinema"sign. Mr. Village of Granville Council Meeting Minutes September 1, 1993 Page 5 Seith stated that he was "profoundly worried about issue we are dancing around". Mr. Seith stated that he would not call this a sign but a light. Mr. Seith stated that the neon sign identifies and is not an advertising piece. Mr. Seith stated that the sign is only visible through a window and not applied to the outside of the building. Mr. Seith stated that we are setting up to act as atheistic police as to what we can see in peoples homes. He advised council to use extreme caution when exercising what can be seen from windows. Mary Fellabaum was present to ask Council if the fire department purchased the house on the corner of Prospect and College Street. Ms. Fellabaum stated that she has been on vacation and several people have questioned her concerning this issue. Ms. Fellabaum stated that the fire department had just passed a levy. Ms. Fellabaum asked if the fire department held an open formal meeting to discuss the purchase and if not, why not? Manager Plunkett stated that the fire department has either purchased or has made an offer on the house. Mr. Plunkett stated that he did not yet know if the deal was closed. Vice Mayor Marshall stated that Council was not informed of any plans to buy the house. Mayor Eisenberg stated that the issues raised are significant. Mr. Eisenberg stated that the fire department acts independently and spends funds without public input. Mayor Eisenberg stated that Council does not know what the plans are for the fire department. Mayor Eisenberg sated that he was glad that the issue was raised and that it needed to be aired and discussed. Katherine McLoughlin owner of the Book Cellar was also present to question the fire station issue. She stated that the Master Plan took a lot of time and input. Ms. McLoughlin stated that it was her understanding that the fire department was not staying in the village. Manager Plunkett stated that the Master Plan gave three options: expand the present location, construct a satellite fire station, construct a new fire station near the Service Department. Ms. McLoughlin stated that she would like to see the fire department move out of the downtown which would eliminate traffic in the downtown. Ms. McLoughlin stated that there is office space available at the Granvilla Complex which the fire department could use without buying property. Councilmember Herman stated that the citizens should let the fire department know that they are unhappy with what they are doing. Village of Granville Council Meeting Minutes September 1, 1993 Page 6 Ms. McLoughlin asked if the fire department meetings were open to the public? Manager Plunkett stated that he wasn't sure and asked Jan Packard who was present at the meeting. Ms. Packard replied that the meetings were not generally open to the public. Mayor Eisenberg stated that the fire department should move out of the core of the village. Mayor Eisenberg stated that number of squad and fire runs are bound to increase with the developments in the community. Mayor Eisenberg stated that if the fire department were to locate by the service department, they would have easy access to the expressway and State Route 161, that would help eliminate traffic in the downtown.. Councilmember Vance stated that the village should request some input at the fire department meetings. Mayor Eisenberg stated that he agrees with Councilmember Vance, since the fire department deals with public monies, the public should have a seat on the board. Councilmember Vance asked if the fire department had a charter or a set of bylaws that they operated under? Manager Plunkett answered that they operated under bylaws. Manager Plunkett stated that he was told by the fire department that he wasn't entitled to a copy of the bylaws. Manager Plunkett stated that the Granville Volunteer Fire Department has a contract with the township and not the village. Mr. Plunkett stated the fire department is accountable to the township. Councilmember Vance stated that should there be public input at the fire department meetings. Councilmember Vance stated that he was not levying criticism on the fire department but, the issue needs to be further addressed. Manager Plunkett stated that the Village has had a lease with the GVFD since 1974. The GVFD can be a tenant for as long as they want, unless Council replaces them with another fire department. Councilmember Herman stated that Council should schedule a meeting with the fire department board or chairman to discuss the matter. Manager Plunkett stated that he would ask the fire department to be at the September 15, 1993, Village Council Meeting. Herb Murphy of the Murphy Group was present to question the letter he received from the village dated April 16, 1993, regarding the east Granville waterline special assessments. Mr. Murphy stated that the letter said he had 90 days to get water taps. Mr. Murphy stated that he applied for the taps and his check was 1 Village of Granville Council Meeting Minutes September 1, 1993 Page 7 returned. Mr. Murphy stated that he also asked for a refund on the permit rates. Mr. Murphy asked the status on the matter. Law Director Hurst stated that he received a copy of the correspondence between Manager Plunkett and Mr. Murphy. Mr. Hurst stated that in his opinion, under the current Ordinance No. 10-92, the village manager was wrong in his letter by suggesting what he did. Mr. Hurst stated that the ability was not there. Mr. Hurst stated that the ordinance clearly stated the terms of the requirements necessary to obtain the rates. The application did not meet these requirements. Mr. Hurst stated that there is a number of inequities present. Mr. Hurst stated that the matter should be revised again with changes to under take the inequities. Mr. Hurst stated under the present Ordinance No. 10-92, no one qualified for a reduced rate and no one made application. Mr. Hurst stated that in his opinion, no one can tie into the water line at a reduced rate. Mr. Hurst stated that his reading of Ordinance No. 10-92 was different from the managers. Bill Clamurro of 529 Burg Street stated that he supported the neon cinema sign and he felt that Council should allow it. Mr. Clamurro stated that the sign was very appropriate for the building. Mr. Clamurro stated that the sign faced the parking lot and everything around the Cinema Building is part of the college. Mr. Clamurro stated that he believed that the issue was a matter of principal and doesn't have preference of legality. Mr. Clamurro stated that the sign is appropriate in regards to the building. Dave Goldblatt of 419 Berg Street stated that he was in favor of the sign. Mr.Goldblatt neon stated that the sign was not a work of art but it was an expression. The sign was a gift from students and an expression of what goes on in the building. Mr. Goldblatt stated that he hoped Council would vote in favor of the sign. Todd Feil, 229 Cherry Street, stated that he was in favor of the stop sign recently placed at the Cherry Street intersection. Mr. Feil stated that in his opinion Chapter 1189.05 of the sign code in his opinion the neon sign fits the code. Mr. Feil asked Council to vote in favor of the neon sign. Mayor Eisenberg thanked all the citizens for coming and speaking. Mayor Eisenberg stated that all the comments had been very useful to him personally.

The committee is working on applying for a recycling grant. The committee will be meeting with Carol Phillips to discuss the matter further. Mr. Herman stated that the committee also discussed the Broadway crosswalk. Mr. Herman stated that he had discussed the matter with State Representative Marc Guthrie. Mr. Herman stated that Representative Guthrie was supportive of a stop sign. Councilmember Vance stated that the Sign Code Review Committee met on August 23, 1993. The Chairman has rewrote the sign code and they are going to be reviewing it soon. OLD BUSINESS Councilmember Vance asked if at the last meeting Council asked for a sample petition concerning a stop sign installed at the Broadway crosswalk?Manager Plunkett stated that it was discussed but he didn't think that it was assigned. Councilmember Garrett stated that the problems in the crosswalk are every individuals responsibility. Mrs. Garrett stated that it is the responsibility of parents to keep their hands on their children and keep track of them. Councilmember Garrett stated that everyone needed to be aware that crosswalks are not to be crossed without first looking for traffic. Councilmember Garrett stated that in her opinion, a stop sign in the middle of Broadway would be ridiculous, all it would do is back up traffic. NEW BUSINESS Denison Sign Appeal Law Director Hurst stated that he would like to refresh Council on the options they have available concerning the sign appeal. Mr. Hurst stated that under Chapter 1137.01, prior to hearing, the Law Director and Village Manager should have the findings of fact from the Planning Commission. Mr. Hurst stated that Council he was advising that the procedures have been met. Mr. Hurst stated that council has 10 days from the hearing to render a decision. Mr. Hurst stated that if council determines that the findings of fact are different from that of the Planning Commission, they may return the issue back to the Commission. Village of Granville 1 1 Council Meeting Minutes September 1, 1993 Page 9 Mayor Eisenberg stated that the majority of council has viewed the sign when it was lit. Mayor Eisenberg stated that the sign was only visible from directly across the street. Mayor Eisenberg stated that he understands the concerns of the people. Mayor Eisenberg stated that he personally did not find the sign objectionable. Mayor Eisenberg stated that the sign may or may not set precedence.

Vice Mayor Marshall sated that in his opinion the neon sign is objectionable in that area. Mr. Marshall stated that any lighted sign in that area is out of place. Mr. Marshall stated that the sign would set precedent for others and that he intended to vote against the sign.

Mr. Marshall stated that he thought that was entirely wrong. Councilmember Freytag stated that he doesn't favor the sign in its present condition. Mr. Freytag stated that he would favor the sign if it was moved back. Councilmember Herman stated that he would favor the sign if it was moved back 6 to 8 feet. Councilmember Shulman stated that the sign is intended for the Denison community. Mr. Shulman stated that the students don't need to be reminded all the time that it is the Cinema Building. Mr. Shulman stated that if the sign is to identify the building, it could be used as a temporary sign.

Councilmember Garrett stated that she saw no problem with the sign in its present condition. Mrs. Garrett stated that the sign fits the building.

Erinwood Street Discussion
Manager Plunkett stated that the Planning Commission has met with Frank and
Herb Murphy, they are ready to begin building the Village Green Phase 2, which is the
next six condominium buildings on Donegal Drive. Manager Plunkett stated that the
Murphy's want build Donegal Drive to Shannon Way without extending Donegal to
Kildare Street until the other condos are complete. The Planning Commission agreed
with that proposal. Manager Plunkett stated that initially, he had a problem agreeing
with that but, since the Murphy's agreed to finish the road within five years, he no
longer felt that it was a problem.
Manager Plunkett stated that when he met with the Murphy's last week, he did
not mention the closing of Shannon Way.
Frank Murphy stated that he could not comment on this issue because the
condos belong to his brother.
Councilmember Shulman stated that in his personal view, there should not be entrance from NewarkG- ranville an Road to Shannon Lane. Mr. Shulman stated at the
Planning Commission meeting, there was a discussion concerning the village
maintenance vehicles having difficulty maneuvering through there.
Councilmember Vance stated that there are three roads now coming in to the
condos off Newark-Granville Road in a fairly short distance.
Councilmember Shulman stated that he recommended closing the Shannon Way
entrance off Newark Granville as soon as possible, so that people don't get use to using the entrance.
Manager Plunkett stated that it was his understanding that Herb Murphy wanted that entrance closed.
Mayor Eisenberg asked if the plan for South Galway included a Wendy's entrance?
Frank Murphy stated that a Wendy's entrance is not included but there is an entrance for another restaurant. Mr. Murphy stated that there is right-of-way where the sewer went in.
Vice Mayor Marshall stated that he thought five years was along time for the completion of the roads in Erinwood.
Manager Plunkett stated that it will be five years or sooner, which ever comes first, the completion of the condos or five years.
Vice Mayor Marshall stated that he thought five years was a long time, three years was better.
Councilmember Shulman stated that safety was another issue in the closing of Shannon Way. Councilmember Shulrnan stated that there will be 12 new buildings with 48 units, they will most probably use Shannon Way .Mr. Shulman stated that Shannon Way is not a public street.

Council agreed that in three years or after Kildare, Donegal and South Galway
are all connected, they would close the entrance from Newark-Granville Road to
Shannon Way.
Vice Mayor Marshall stated that Manager Plunkett should ask Herb Murphy to be
present for the passing of the resolution stating the closing of Shannon Way.
Sidewalks
Jurgen Pape stated that recently the Planning Commission has been looking at
land regulations. Sidewalks are an issue that needs to be addressed. Mr. Pape
suggested that the village have specifics for sidewalks so that the Planning
Commission would never have to question the issue again. Mr. Pape stated that brick
sidewalks are something that the village may want to consider because brick is easier
to repair.
Manager Plunkett stated that the Village has a sidewalk replacement program
which reimburses up to 50%of the replacement cost. Manager Plunkett stated that the
village does not pay half the cost for brick sidewalks. Manager Plunkett stated that the
village has sidewalk specifications and that he would see that Mr. Pape received a copy.
Mr. Pape stated that sidewalks should always be in the right-of-way and that pavement should be designed any for the anticipated traffic. Mr. Pape stated that another
sidewalk issue is the five foot versus four foot sidewalks. Mr. Pape stated that the
Planning Commission has recommended four foot sidewalks or to have the have option
of four or five feet, depending on the circumstances. Mr. Pape stated that the Planning Commission should be able to vary the widths. Mr. Pape stated that in his opinion, four
foot sidewalks are adequate for normal areas.
After a discussion, Councilmember Freytag stated that the question of four
versus five foot sidewalks has been discussed before and the majority of Council feels that five foot is appropriate.
Mayor Eisenberg stated Mr. Freytag was correct, Council would stay with five foot sidewalks.
Councilmember Shulman stated that Mr. Kent has proposed a pathway system in his preliminary plans for the area previously known as Farmington. Mr. Shulman questioned who would maintain those?
Mayor Eisenberg stated that Mr. Kent's plans are not in front of Council at this time, and Council has not even seen the plans. Mr. Eisenberg stated that Council can not make decisions like that with out first looking at what Mr. Kent is proposing. 1

Broadway Crosswalk
Councilmember Vance stated that he has had several people make the
suggestion that perhaps the Granville Police should start watching for and issuing
citations to drivers not stopping for the crosswalk. Mr. Vance stated maybe that action
would also help stop the multiple U-turns that occur quite often on Broadway.
Councilmember Vance stated that Ohio Department of Transportation has said
that no stop sign or stop light would be allowed to be placed at the crosswalk. Mr.
Vance suggested a petition may help ODOT to change their minds. Mr. Vance stated
that if the village could not make the cars stop at the crosswalk, then perhaps the
crosswalk will have to be taken out. Mr. Vance stated that he would hate to see the
crosswalk be taken out, but that may be the only solution. Mr. Vance noted that a traffic
light may help keep "truckers"out of the downtown.
Councilmember Herman stated that the Council may want to take the problem to
the legislative branch first.
Manager Plunkett stated that we would write a letter to the legislative branch
concerning the crosswalk.

Sharon Sellitto of Cherry Street was present to question way stop signs had been installed the reason why four- at the CherryM/ aple Street intersection.
1Manager Plunkett stated that there were three reasons why the signs were installed: one is assured clear distance, ( if one pulls out of Cherry Street, oncoming traffic); children must cross that intersection to catch the school bus and there is no sidewalk on the west side of Cherry Street; people tend to cross the Cherry Street bridge at high speeds -they don't realize they're are making a transition from a highway to a residential area. Manager Plunkett stated that the Service Department has installed more "stop ahead"signs as a temporary measure to make people aware that the stop is coming. Manager Plunkett stated that the stop signs may encourage eighteen wheelers to use Main Street instead of South Cherry for access to Granville. Mayor Eisenberg stated that the accident that occurred a few days ago helped the Village become more aware of the problems at the Cherry Street intersection. COMMITTEE REPORTS Councilmember Freytag reported on the Old Colony Burying Ground Board meeting of July 26, 1993. The cemetery restoration experts from Massachusetts have worked in the Old Colony Burial Ground twice, helping the Village to restore the cemetery. Those experts will not return to Granville until next year. Councilmember Freytag reported on the Recreation Committee's meeting of August 3, 1993. The main item of business at that meeting was the landscaping to be installed at Wildwood Playground. The approximate cost of the project is $12,000. OLD BUSINESS Sludge Holding Facilities Chuck Coghlan of CF Bird and RJ Bull Inc.,was present to inform Council of the federally mandated sludge processing changes at the waste water plant. Mr. Coghlan stated that recent tightening of USEPA standards have created problems regarding digestion of organic materials in the sludge as well as vector reduction. Mr. Coghlan stated that he has prepared a report outlining the improvements that need to be completed which requires additional tankage to allow operation of the facility more manageably and to meet the new guidelines. Mr. Coghlan stated that the approximate cost is $400,000. This estimated cost is for a combination of three concrete tanks which will hold 110,000 gallons. Mr. Coghlan stated that the smaller of the two tanks would be for thickening while the larger gallon would be for solids digestion. Mr. Coghlan stated that thickening would density the sludge to 4%Fe.deral standards must be in place be February 19, 1995. Joe Hickman stated that three years ago, this was matter was brought to Council in an effort to streamline operations and improve overall treatment plant efficiency, now it is Federal Regulation and the improvements must be completed in a timely fashion. Mayor Eisenberg thanked Mr. Coghlan for coming. East Granville Sewer 1 2 1 Jerry Turner also of CF Bird &RJ Bull, was present to bring Council up to date on the sewers in East Granville. Mr. Turner stated that since the village has further interest in development in the east, he will be reviewing plans regarding sanitary sewer availability for the intersection of Cherry Valley Road and State Route 16. Alternatives would include upgrading the Bryn Du and Erinwood lift stations and enlarging the sewermain section on East Broadway. Mr. Turner stated that another alternative would be satellite package treatment facility. These facilities would have to be approved by Bird &Bull, the Village, and Ohio EPA. Mr. Turner stated that the village must realize they will have the continual maintenance expense of additional mechanical facilities. Councilmember Garrett asked what the disadvantages of pumping would be? Mr. Turner stated that they are now pumped three times. It would definitely have an adverse effect on the plant in terms of biological loading. Manager Plunkett stated that Joe Hickman, Doug Tailford and he met with Super America /McDonalds Corporation today. They want to develop the property they own at the southwest corner of Cherry Valley Road and SR 16. Mr. Plunkett stated that John Thaxton of SuperAmerica offered to build the sewer mains under SR 16. Mr. Plunkett stated that the sewer could service east Granville. Mr. Plunkett stated that the engineers have not discussed anything yet, but these are possibilities. Councilmember Freytag asked what it would cost for Super America to build across SR 16? Mr. Turner stated approximately4 $00.00 per foot. Councilmember Garrett stated that the corner would bring a lot of tax dollars to Granville School System if it develops. Manager Plunkett stated that he is planning to have SuperAmerica meet with Joe Hickman and Bird &Bull representatives next week. Mayor Eisenberg thanked Mr. Turner and Mr. Coghlan for coming and speaking. Manager Plunkett stated that more specifics are needed; the trunk sewer may not be necessary if this proposal comes about. Mayor Eisenberg stated that if it was a viable scene, the trunk sewer should not need any more consideration. Councilmember Vance stated that Mr. Hickman should make sure that EPA signs off on the pliminary plan and the time table for the sludge holding facilities before any work actually begins. Ordinance No. 20-93, " An Ordinance To Amend Ordinance No. 49-92 Providing For Adjustments Of The Annual Budget For The Fiscal Year 1993 And Revising Sums For Operating Expenses", was reintroduced, title read and moved for adoption by Councilmember Freytag.

Ordinance No. 20-93 was adopted. Resolution No. 932- 8, A" Resolution To Fill A Vacancy On The Board Of Zoning And Building Appeals Created By The Resignation Of Ann M. Kennedy". Manager Plunkett stated that the two candidates for the Board of Zoning and Building Appeals are Eric Steward and Dan Bellman. Mr. Bellman is also interested in 1 3 1 the Planning Commission vacancy. Mr. Plunkett stated that there are six candidates for the Planning Commission vacancy. Mayor Eisenberg stated that Council has not yet come to a comfortable way to appoint members to the various boards. Mr. Eisenberg stated that Council must come up with a more satisfactory way to appoint members. Mayor Eisenberg suggested having a committee to interview the various candidates. The committee then should make a recommendation to the entire Council. After a discussion, a ballot vote was taken. Ballot result: Eric Steward, two votes, Dan Bellman, four votes. Mr. Bellman was appointed. Resolution No. 93-28, was introduced, read in full, and moved for adoption by Vice Mayor Marshall. Seconded by Councilmember Vance. Motion carried.

Public hearing was set for August 18, 1993, at 7:30 p.m. West Broadway Sidewalk Councilmember Freytag questioned when the West Broadway sidewalk project was going to begin? Manager Plunkett stated that he has spoke with Mr. Coghlan of Bird &Bull. Mr. Coghlan stated the plans should be ready at the end of next week. Erinwood Traffic Islands 4 Manager Plunkett stated that he recommends that Council not approve the traffic islands at Erinwood. Manager Plunkett stated that the islands will get tore up over the years because the road is so narrow. Manager Plunkett stated that in his opinion, the traffic islands will be a maintenance problem for the Village. Councilmember Vance stated that Mr. Murphy was agreeable with leaving the islands in for a year. Since the acceptance is not occurring with the roads, the village should make a final decision in a year. Councilmember Garrett stated that the traffic island on Pine Hurst Drive is much larger than that of Erinwood. Mrs. Garrett stated the island on Pine Hurst Drive is beat up and looks terrible. Water Capacity Fees Councilmember Freytag stated that a month ago, Manager Plunkett sent a memo concerning water capacity fees. Mr. Freytag asked for the status on that. Manager Plunkett stated that the issue of returned water capacity fees to two homes had fees paid and the permits were withdrawn. Manager Plunkett stated that Law Director Hurst and he are conferring on that matter now. Manager Plunkett stated that regarding capacity fees, the situation before the new ordinance was passed, was that when someone paid and reserved a tap, they had forever to actually activate that tap. The ordinance changed, and that is no longer true. Several people have made plans to build. The new ordinance says that property owners along the East Granville Waterline have 90 days to hook up. Manager Plunkett stated that his statements made before the ordinance was changed had placed him in a somewhat embarrassing position. MEETING ANNOUNCEMENTS The next Village Council Meeting is August 18, 1993, at 7:30 p.m. ADJOURNMENT Councilmember Vance moved to adjourn the meeting, seconded by Vice Mayor Marshall. Motion carried. The meeting adjourned at 9:23 p.m.

Herb Murphy stated that he would like to commend Council on taking steps to help preserve the value of the land in East Granville. Mr. Murphy stated that Ordinance No. 15-93 will require that restaurants, banks, finance and utility offices be conditional
uses. This would make those items subject to review by both the Planning Commission and the Board of Zoning and Building Appeals. Mr. Murphy stated that he believed the reason for the change was to make the items subject to a review. Adopting Ordinance No. 159-3 would make those items subject to two reviews. Mr. Murphy stated that he felt two reviews may be a burden to the applicants. Mr. Murphy stated in his opinion, one review should be enough. 1

Lenny Hueman
Lenny Hueman was present to describe an incident that occurred two weeks
ago. Mr. Hueman stated that he owns rental property through out Granville. Recently at one of Lenny's rental properties, 221 North Pearl Street, a renter moved out. The renter's check for the water/ sewer bill bounced. The water the department tried to contact renter and couldn't. After 38 days, the water department tried to contact Mr. Hueman, and couldn't.

Page 4by shutting off the water and he believes that it was wrong. Mr. Hueman stated that the village knew that the landlord would pay the water bill if the tenant did not. Mr. Hueman stated that he was just asking for someone to look into this and explain what happened. Mr. Hueman feels that this was totally wrong. Manager Plunkett stated that Lenny and he have discussed this problem for the past 13 years. The building at 221 North Pearl Street has one tap serving two apartments. When the water was shut off to 221 North Pearl Street, the resident upstairs was also without water. Mr. Hueman has the ability to continue the way it is or add another tap so that each renter has a tap. Mr. Hueman stated that he wasn't aware that there was only one tap at that address. Manager Plunkett stated that over the years this has been discussed, Lenny thinks that the village should demand a deposit so that landlords don't have to deal with this. Mr. Plunkett stated it has been Granville's position that it's not the responsibility of the Village to manage those kinds of accounts. Mr. Plunkett stated that he is very sorry this happened, but the village made attempts to contact the tenant. Mr. Plunkett stated that after 30 days of non payment, the rest of the rate payers suffer. Mr. Freytag asked if the renter accounts could be tagged with the name of the landlord so that if the renter doesn't pay, the landlord can get the bill? Councilmember Vance stated that he doesn't think it is the Villages responsibility to be the watchdog for landlords. Mayor Eisenberg stated that the water department should consider sending a letter to the landlord before shutting off the water.

wanted. Mayor Eisenberg stated that the properties on the south side of Cherry Valley

Doug Tailford
Maxine Montgomery
Joe Williams
Sally MacPhail, Sentinel
Frank Murphy was present to ask Council to consider allowing 4 foot sidewalks at
Village Green. Mr. Murphy stated that he realized the Village requires five foot
sidewalks but in this area, it would allow more grass area from the curb to the walk. Mr.
Murphy stated this suggestion is not being made to save money, but it be pleasing to the more eye and a safety issue too.
Mayor Eisenberg stated Mr. Murphy should make a recommendation to the Street &Sidewalk Committee.
Councilmember Garrett stated the Council had been through similar situations before. Council decided that sidewalks must be five foot.
Mayor Eisenberg agreed the matter had already been discussed. Mayor Eisenberg thanked Mr. Murphy for his comment.
Maxine Montgomery was present to obtain background on why fast food restaurants are being discussed in east Granville.
Mayor Eisenberg informed Mrs. Montgomery that the issue started out to define fast food restaurants in the commercial area in east Granville. The intent of the ordinance to define fast food would be to gain more control on the area. The ordinance on the agenda tonight would change all restaurants to conditional uses. BusineMssrs. Montgomery asked why council made the zoning change to Surban District.
Mayor Eisenberg stated that Council regrets making that change. At the time Council was following the guidelines of the Comprehensive Plan and the Planning

Commission's recommendations. Mayor Eisenberg stated he doesn't believe council
can reverse the zoning, however Council is trying to take step to control development.
Mrs. Montgomery stated that she respected Council for being straightforward
and can appreciate them making a mistake and trying to correct it as best as possible.
Frank Murphy stated that the Comprehensive Plan call for the area to be zoned
commercial. I last week's Sentinel, the paper made several false statements. Mr.

anything.
COMMITTEE REPORTS
Councilmember Herman reported on the Ordinance Review Committee's meeting of
June 14. At that meeting, the committee reviewed the language in Ordinance No. 12-93
and broadened the list for conditional uses. The committee recommends passing
Ordinance No. 12-93 as amended.
Councilmember Freytag stated this is an ongoing effort and the committee would
be making more recommendations.
Councilmember Freytag reported on the Old Colony Cemetery meeting of June 7. At
that meeting, the committee received a $11, 000 gift. At the present time, it is unclear if
the person wishes to remain anonymous or not. This month, people are returning to
work on the cemetery to continue restoring it. The storage shed that will be built on the
south edge on the cemetery was also discussed.
Councilmember Herman asked if there was a plan to remove the "abandon"
truck that is parked by the cemetery.
Councilmember Freytag stated that the truck was not on the Cemetery property.
However, he believes Council passed legislation allowing the village to remove the junk
vehicles.
Zoning Inspector Doug Tailford stated that the ordinance states junk motor
vehicles must have acceptable cover. Council must decide what is an acceptable
cover.
Mayor Eisenberg stated council should give the zoning inspector the power to
decide what an acceptable cover is.
Law Director Hurst stated he would like to review the Ordinance concerning junk
vehicles before the zoning inspector receives the power to decide what is acceptable.
Mayor Eisenberg stated Rufus and Doug Tailford would make a recommendation
to council about the "junk truck"by the cemetery.

Councilmember Ed Vance
Assistant Manager Joe Hickman
Newark Councilmember Phelps stated "Granville unanimously adopted a resolution authorizing the Village Manager to negotiate with Newark for a turn lane and
for an inter municipal sewer agreement at Granville's Wednesday night council
meeting." Councilmember Phelps stated both issues are needs, and Newark hopes to
continue to negotiate in a cooperative fashion. Phelps stated the turn lane would be
beneficial to the people in both communities, while the sewer agreement will only
benefit Granville residents. Phelps noted Mayor Frank Stare's position is that Newark will go ahead with the turn lane with or without Granville.
Granville Mayor Eisenberg stated the sewer hook ups will be limited to 17 residents. That is a finite number.
Granville Manager Plunkett stated as the hook area changes, there could be more ups but that would be at no cost to Newark.
Newark Councilmember Resta stated she was unclear on the purpose of this meeting; if everyone agrees the turn lane is needed, why are we here?
Granville Mayor Eisenberg stated his hope that last weeks meeting with Newark started a beginning of face to face meetings. Mr. Eisenberg stated he would like to see the meetings with Newark more often, regardless of the outcome of this meeting. The eventual outcome should be to develop an ongoing relationship. Mr. Eisenberg stated
1
1
Newark /Granville Meeting
Page 2
Newark and Granville need to build a good relationship with each other, so each
municipality can develop trust and be able to work together cooperatively.
Newark Councilmember Resta asked " which issue are we discussing tonight?"
Mayor Eisenberg stated both issues need to be discussed.
Newark Councilmember Phelps stated she has submitted a resolution to the
clerk for the next Newark Council agenda to consider the sewer issues. It was agreed
at the last meeting to proceed to the floor.
Mayor Eisenberg asked if the resolution authorized the administration to
negotiate and conclude.
Newark Councilmember Phelps stated the resolution would be to allow
negotiations and Phelps couldn't say conclude.
Newark Councilmember Phelps stated the resolution Granville adopted
Wednesday listed the turn lane in section 1 and the sewer in section 2. Councilmember
Phelps asked Granville to enlighten Newark to the terms of negotiations for the turn
lane.
Manager Plunkett stated that Newark came to Granville and asked Granville to
contribute to building the turn lane. Right away Granville said yes. Granville is anxious
to pay for part of the turn lane. The only reason the issues in the resolution were
divided into sections 1 and 2 was for outline purposes.
Manager Plunkett stated if both councils can proceed with the two issues, t"hen
lets do it."The question is, is Newark willing to let Granville tie into their sewer?Mr.
Plunkett stated Mr. Curry has mentioned the extension of Terrace Avenue,
development is becoming clearer by the day. Granville is looking at the opportunity to work with Newark.
Newark Councilmember Curry stated he realized the turn lane was a band aid solution, but Newark shouldn't wait five years to make Cherry Valley a five lane road. Approximately 15,000 vehicles a day drive on Cherry Valley Road. Mr. Curry stated there is no reason a five lane road couldn't go in. If Terrace Avenue opens, it will load more traffic on Cherry Valley Road.
At this time Mr. Curry explained where Terrace Avenue was and where the opening would be.
1
Newark /Granville Meeting
Page 3
Granville Manager Plunkett stated the sewer hook up to Newark is the best
solution for Granville economically. With the development soon to happen on Price
Road and other areas, Granville and Newark will have to deal a lot in the future. The
issues before the two councils now will set the tone for dealing in the future.
Granville Mayor Eisenberg stated he understands the turn lane needs a go
ahead now, and Granville understand Newark's process. If Granville had an expression
of good faith from Newark that they would support Granville, Granville would allow the
turn lane to continue.
Newark Councilmember Jay Hottinger stated that he hated to be the pessimist,
however in March similar legislation was defeated by Newark City Council. Mr.
Hottinger doesn't think the prospect is very good. Mr. Hottinger stated he is not seeing
an even exchange between Newark and Granville, The turn lane is going to benefit
Granville and Newark, while the sewer will only benefit Granville. If there was a benefit
for Newark by the sewer agreement, Newark may be more apt to accept it.
Councilmember Garrett stated Newark had an opportunity a year ago to benefit and Newark turned it down.
Newark Councilmember Hottinger stated the turn lane will proceed with without Granville. or Mr. Hottinger stated if Granville doesn't participate, Granville will loose.
Granville Councilmember Freytag asked if this meant Newark would never cooperate with Granville unless Newark would benefit?Newark may come to Granville
in the future. If the sewer tie-ins are not granted now, Granville will be hesitant to let Newark have whatever they want in the future.
Granville Mayor Eisenberg stated that Mr. Freytag hit the nail right on the head. The benefit is clear. The next time Newark comes to Granville and needs cooperation, Newark will not get it, if the only measure is one-for-one.
Newark Councilmember Phelps stated the turn lane is not beneficial to the municipalities. It is only beneficial to the people traveling the road and the businesses there. The entities do not benefit. Ms Phelps stated that she has had some Newark residents requesting Newark not to let Granville have the sewer tap. Some housing additions in Newark don't have sewer services. Councilmember Phelps stated the sewer will benefit and be less costly for Granville. Phelps stated Mr. Hottinger feels one 1
Newark /Granville Meeting
Page 4
way about the project, however she sees more if cooperation is present, and if
Granville allows the turn lane, then she can see Newark Council proceeding. The terms
and conditions would have to be worked out by the Newark administration and
Granville.
Newark Councilmember Resta stated that she had been in favor of the
negotiations last year. Ms Resta stated she had voted yes because she saw no reason
why the two municipalities couldn't work together. Ms Resta asked if Granville's go
ahead on the turn lane is dependent on the sewer issue?
Mayor Eisenberg stated he understands the time constraints the issues are
under but things can be done quickly if they need to be.
Manager Plunkett stated the tap fees and rates would be set by Newark. There
would be no out-of-pocket expense from Newark.
Mayor Eisenberg stated there is nothing to negotiate except will it happen?
Granville is making it very clear there will be no cost to Newark. Granville will bear the
entire cost for the sewer.
Newark Councilmember Resta asked if Newark doesn't pass legislation saying
that, does Newark not get the portion of the turn lane?
Granville Councilmember Herman stated that he is hearing constantly the word
equal. Mr. Herman asked " can't Newark see that a day may come when Newark will
need something from Granville. We are creating animosity. One side must give in to the
other."
Newark Councilmember Hottinger stated his concern that the sewer was creating
an ethical problem for him. He didn't believe granting the sewer access to Granville
would allow the continued disallowance of such connections in Newark Township.
Newark Service Director Tim Matheny stated Newark has similar agreements
with Heath already.
Mr. Hottinger asked the dates on the agreements.
Granville Councilmember Garrett stated the last agreement with Heath was
renewed in 1991. Mrs. Garrett stated Granville has a similar agreement for water with
Alexandria. Granville Township can't tap into the existing water lines. Granville allows
1
Newark /Granville Meeting
Page 5
these agreements with other corporate entities. Ms. Garrett stated she is aware that
Newark has areas with out sewer, but in those areas, there is no sewer trunk present .
A trunk exists here at the Cherry Valley Lodge site.
Newark Councilmember Hottinger stated he is aware of the agreements with
other entities. Mr. Hottinger feels the current Newark Council wouldn't have allowed
them.
Granville Councilmember Herman asked Mr. Hottinger what Granville could do
to address his concerns?
Mr. Hottinger stated that he looks at this from a business perspective and from a
business perspective the proposal does not look good.
Granville Vice Mayor Marshall stated Newark would be obtaining a small amount
of revenue for nothing. Why wouldn't this be a good business deal?
Councilmember Freytag stated every business has good will. Maybe the
business issue to look at is good will.
Councilmember Hottinger stated he doesn't want animosity and he is not trying
to play the bad guy role. Mr. Hottinger stated equal is a big thing for him.
Manager Plunkett stated it takes $ 7,500 as Granville's share to build a turn lane. The sewer revenue that Newark would receive from benefited properties is forever.
Councilmember Hottinger asked when the area was annexed, was Granville assuming Newark would help out with the water and sewer?
Granville Councilmember Garrett explained the Granville annexation was done by township citizens, not the village.
Mr. Hottinger asked if the area should have been annexed to Granville if Granville can't provide the services?
Mayor Eisenberg stated we are getting off the subject that really needs to be addressed. At this rate, we are only going to get into debates and rehashing the past. mMirn. uEtiesse.nberg asked Newark to allow Granville Council to meet alone for a few
1

Newark Service Director Matheny stated that the sewer line is being taken out to
the road now. Mr. Matheny wanted to make sure Granville was aware of that.
Newark Councilmember Hottinger suggested that Granville have a
representative on hand at Newark Council's June 7 meeting.
Newark Councilmember Phelps stated she doesn't think the animosity is here
she think Newark is leaning from this.
At this time Granville Council met to discuss the issues among themselves.
Upon returning, Granville Mayor Eisenberg stated Granville has given Newark
its best shot for hopes for the future of the relationship. Granville has reached a point in
the discussion that won't get us any further. Granville will grant Newark whatever
Newark needs to build the turn lane; Newark can have the right of way, and the
7,500.
Newark Councilmember Phelps stated Newark appreciates this. Phelps stated
Newark has good intentions for negotiating the sewer issue. Councilmember Phelps
stated the sewer issue will be on the agenda at their next meeting, and will do
everything in her power to go ahead with the project. Councilmember Phelps stated she
though this meeting had been great. She appreciated Granville's decision.

Phelps noted Resolution No. 93-18 is on the agenda to authorize the Village Manger to
negotiate with Newark for a turn lane and sewer and she hopes this matter can be resolved.
Newark Councilmember Homer Curry stated he thinks Newark, Granville, and
Licking County, should look further than the turn lane. They should consider installing
five lanes on Cherry Valley Road. Terrace Avenue in Newark is being considered for traffic study, with the possibility of a opening Terrace Avenue into Heath. This will
definitely increase the traffic on Cherry Valley Road.

MEETING
NEWARK CITY /GRANVILLE VILLAGE
CHERRY VALLEY LODGE SITE
NEWARK, OHIO
MAY 13, 1993
Councilmember Jay Hottinger, Councilmember Dave Evans, Councilmember
Homer Currry, Councilmember Marcia Phelps, City Engineer Jim Roberts, and Service
Director Tim Matheny were present to represent Newark City.
Mayor Arnold Eisenberg, Vice Mayor Pete Marshall, Councilmember Dan
Freytag, Councilmember Lon Herman, Manager Doug Plunkett, and Assistant Manager
Joe Aickman were present representing Granville.
Also present were Steve Larson, Cherry Valley Lodge, Sally MacPhail, Granville
Sentinel; WCLT news, Pastor James Reed, Family Life Center; and, Granville Clerk of
Council Carie Miller.
The meeting began outside on the Cherry Valley Lodge site, where Steve
Larson pointed out the proposed turn lane would be located and where the two
entrances to the Cherry Valley Lodge will be placed. The turn lane would be
constructed on the east side of the road. Mr. Larson pointed out some of the traffic
problems already beginning on Cherry Valley Road. He stated that the Lodge will have
a banquet room with capacity for 500 people, 120 employees, and 120 hotel The State Farm rooms. claims service center, under construction just south of the hotel, will
have 80 employees arriving and leaving at approximately the same time daily, which
will create more traffic congestion. Mr. Larson noted his opinion that most of the
accidents and traffic problems will be inside Granville corporation limits.
Newark City Engineer Jim Roberts stated the turn lane would extend
approximately 100 feet before the main entrance to the lodge in either direction.
Someday, Cherry Valley Road will need to be a five lane road, and for now the turn lane is a b"and aid"solution to existing and potential problems. Mr. Roberts stated the turn lane won't be a perfect solution, but will be better than doing nothing.
Mr. Larson stated there are two residents the turn lane will affect. A small cut in their front yard will have to be made. These residents have not been notified, but Mr. Larson felt they would not mind the small cut in their yard. The Family Life Center has been contacted and Pastor Reed is in favor of the proposed turn lane.
Jim Roberts pointed out where the existing sewer lift station is located at the Cherry Valley Lodge Site. 1

Upon entering the construction trailer where the remainder of the meeting took
place, Newark Councilmember Marcia Phelps stated Newark is happy to get together
with Granville on the issue. Both municipalities recognize the problem that is going to
exist as a result of the traffic generated by the lodge. The turn lane needs to be
addressed immediately because of the six week time frame on the project.
Mr. Larson noted that in approximately 90 days, the lodge will open. The traffic
problem will become worse with more construction and the opening of the lodge.
Newark Councilmember Marcia Phelps stated the turn lane and sewer issue
both need to be addressed, but, the turn lane is especially important because of time
constraints. An agreement needs to be reached so that construction can begin within 6 weeks.
Mr. Larson stated he had thought he'd have a consensus or alternative for the
issue before the meeting took place, however, he had only spoken with four Newark
Councilmembers and no Granville Councilmembers. Cherry Valley Lodge paid for 55% of the sewer system, and they are responsible for creating traffic. There will be
revenues for both Newark and Granville from the lodge, and Cherry Valley Lodge will
provide jobs. Both communities will benefit from the Lodge. In a sense, Cherry Valley Lodge brought the problem.
Granville Manager Doug Plunkett stated the time pressure on the turn lane greater than is no the time pressure for installation of the sewer lift station. Both should be installed while construction of the lodge is in progress to avoid later business disruption. Mr. Roberts noted that it would be easier for construction purposes if the sewer was put in now while everything was torn up.
Granville Councilmember Dan Freytag asked if Newark had a cost proposal for the turn lane project.
Marcia Phelps stated the cost had been discussed earlier with Granville, the Lodge would pay half of the cost, and Newark and Granville would split the remaining half of the cost. Newark has adopted legislation for 1$5,000 for the turn lane. The only tphreoblem is authorization from Granville for the turn lane. The approximate total cost of project is $30,000. 1

Mr. Larson stated if money was the issue, Cherry Valley Lodge is willing to pay,
they just want permission from Granville to install the road on Granville's property.
Money is not the issue, however Granville will be more affected by the traffic.
Granville Councilmember Freytag asked if Newark felt any detriment if the 17
Granville residents tap into the Newark sewers.
Newark Councilmember Jay Hottinger stated Granville needed to look at the
problem as a safety issue. The turn lane is something that is going to help both
communities. One can already see the back up in traffic happening, both municipalities
need to work together.
Newark Councilmember Dave Evans stated in order to answer Mr. Freytag, the
homes in the area are not going to be there forever. Personally he feels no detriment would result from the sewer access.
Granville Mayor Eisenberg stated everyone agrees there is a problem, the real
issue is cooperation between the two municipalities. C"an we once and for all lay to
rest the animosity?M"r. Eisenberg asked how, i"n the last couple of years the situation
has taken place, how did it happen, the two Councils don't even know each other?M"r.
Eisenberg stated sitting down face to face with one another should have happened a long time ago. Now is the perfect opportunity to lay to rest the animosity and have both municipalities benefit.
Newark Councilmember Dave Evans stated the press has blown the relationship between out of proportion, there is no animosity between Newark and Granville.
Mayor Eisenberg stated Newark and Granville are sitting down together and have all the elements for a perfect negotiation. Newark and Granville have to work together and there is no reason a good outcome can't come out of this.
Newark Councilmember Phelps stated that some issues presented are for legislative bodies to discuss and some are for administration. The Council members present can only express the intent to corporate. Further discussion would be up to administration. Newark doesn't have the authority to make a deal tonight.
Granville Mayor Eisenberg stated the lift station would be installed at no expense to Newark. It is in the best interest for the residents of both communities. It

made perfect sense in the past when the annexation was taking place to do that. That
would have resulted in fewer assessments for Granville. Since Newark and Granville
are neighbors, both should be looking at ways to help each other .
Newark Councilmember Jay Hottinger stated circumstances are win-win for
Granville and not for Newark. Newark Council has a policy not to supply water and
sewer outside it corporation limits. If they are not consistent with the policy, they will
have to face an ethical dilemma.
Mayor Eisenberg stated this is not a situation in which residents outside Newark
corporation limits are wanting sewer. You should not condone municipal utilities
connections in unincorporated areas: Granville doesn't.
Newark Councilmember Hottinger stated the turn lane is clear cut and
advantageous for both communities. Newark doesn't want to be put in a situation where
township residents are going to be wanting water and sewer.
Granville Councilmember Freytag asked if sewer would be a detriment to Newark, if not, why not let Granville in.
Newark Councilmember Evans stated they did not have the authority to make agreement, however, they would be glad an administration to go back to the entire council and Newark's to state what is at hand.
Granville Councilmember Herman stated Newark and Granville need to consider the timing for the sewer, money will be saved now. If the project is constructed at a later date, the contractors are the only ones who will benefit. The project needs to begin now while the site is ready for the construction.
Mayor Eisenberg stated there is no qualms to what Granville's policy is in term of selling water and sewer outside the village corporation limits, Granville will not do it. Granville dose not support selling outside corporation limits, however they do support cmoumnmicuipnaitliiteies.s sharing services and utilities where economically feasible for both
Granville Manager Doug Plunkett stated that Newark and Heath currently had agreements between themselves for water and sewer services, almost identical to the one now sought by Granville. 1

Newark /Granville Meeting

Page 5
Newark Councilmember Hottinger stated those agreements were established
years ago, and the present city council doesn't agree to selling utility service to other
municipalities. Mr. Hottinger is uncomfortable with selling water and sewer outside
Newark corporation limits and believes city services should be reserved for use inside
the municipality. If Granville couldn't provide water and sewer to this area, they
shouldn't have annexed it.
Newark Councilmember Evans stated this is an exchange for something that will
benefit both communities. Mr. Evans is in favor of giving Granville sewer access.
Newark Councilmember Hottinger stated he doesn't see this proposal as an exchange.
Granville Councilmember Freytag stated with all the problems in the past, the
benefit is being neighborly. If you turn Granville's request down now, in the future,
when Newark comes to Granville asking for assistance as will likely occur, Granville
won't want to assist Newark. Granville would another. like to put all this in the past and help one
Mr. Hottinger stated if Granville can come up with something that will benefit Newark, he would be interested in the proposal.
Granville Councilmember Herman asked Mr. Hottinger what he would like to see from Granville.
Newark Councilmember Phelps stated it needs to be agreed upon by the entire Newark Council that the discussion should go on, not just among the members present.
Newark Councilmember Curry stated he doesn't understand why everything always has to be 50/ 50, why not 90/10?
establisMhaeydor Eisenberg stated that in order to have those arrangements, trust must be first.
Newark Councilmember Hottinger stated that before negations can start, legislation would have to be passed, then brought to Council to see if it should even take place. In the past, Council stopped such negations before they even got started.

Granville Councilmember Freytag stated Granville understands nothing can be
negotiated now, but if both municipalities go back to their respective council with an
idea and positive aditudes, that could help.
Mayor Eisenberg asked about the possibilities of both entire Councils meeting.
Newark Councilmember Phelps stated because of the time involved, it wasn't
possible because of Newark's agenda deadlines.
Mayor Eisenberg suggested some of Granville's Council members attend

Councilmember Vance also reported on the Street and Sidewalk Committee's report to
Council involving recommendations for sidewalk projects. A copy of that report is
attached and is hereby made a part of these minutes.
Councilmember Shulman stated as a member of the committee, there are other
things that should be considered such as the long-term parkways plan.
Councilmember Freytag reported on the Recreation Committee's meeting of May 4. At
that meeting the four positions which were open were filled. Playground insurance,
water, electric, and use of the shelter house were discussed. The baseball fields at the
school were also discussed. They are still not ready, creating a problem.
OLD BUSINESS
Granville Township Trustees -The Granville Township Trustees were present in
accordance with Section 759.39 of the Ohio Revised Code. Village Council appointed
Dan Freytag as Union Cemetery Trustee for a three year term. Granville Township
Trustees appointed Eric Jones for the duties of Union Cemetery Trustee for a three
year term.
Alexandria -The Alexandria Village Council was present to discuss the current water
contract with Granville. Russ Adams, Alexandria's Law Director, headed the discussion,
stating Alexandria was present to resolve the township tap problem. Granville' is Alexandria issuing s concern taps outside the village corporation limits because Granville
doesn't allow their township to tap in to water lines. Its been Alexandria's policy since
1990 not to issue any more taps outside village corporation limits. A letter from Bill
Rickrich in 1990 reflected Alexandria's concern about the outside taps. In that letter, Mr. Rickrich suggested no more taps be allowed in St. Alban's Township. The
Alexandria Village Administrator, Mr. Hammond, made two new connections in 1990 against the advice of Mr. Rickrich and Mayor Collins.
Fifteen township residents are on Alexandria's water system. That equals about 4%of all water Granville sells to Alexandria. The preferred solution from Alexandria would be to grandfather the township connections currently on the system and make modification to the existing contract between Granville and Alexandria. The contract should state clearly no taps outside Alexandria Village corporation limits will be permitted. In the 1980's, Alexandria recalls there wasn't a problem with outside taps, in fact Alexandria encouraged it because there were not enough users in the Village to pay for the water system.

If Granville can't agree on grandfathering, Alexandria suggests the parts of the
township with water taps be annexed into the Alexandria. That will be a time consuming
effort which Alexandria would not prefer, but will do whatever Granville feels is in the
best interest of both communities.
Mr. Adams stated that Alexandria has contacted Jack Liggett who is a Class 111
operator, for employment in Alexandria.
In responce to Granville's complaint of failure to make timely payments,
Alexandria has increased rates by 33%Wi.th Granville's rate increase, that's about
10%cutback. The Alexandria Finance Committee is watching Funds closely so
payments do not become a problem.
Alexandria has contacted jerry Brems and filed a resolution asking for
assistance in finding a water storage facility. Alexandria has looked at properties, but if
they can't grandfather the existing taps, they have less time for this project.
If Alexandria is to annex the properties in the township with taps, it will take
approximately one year providing things go smoothly. Mr. Adams stated the
annexation on Raccoon Valley Road will be very hard if it is possible .
Granville Manager Plunkett asked about the possibilities of returning the water
tap fees to the township residents if they couldn't be annexed.
Manager Plunkett stated that at the last five year meeting between Granville
Utilities Committee and Alexandria, they discussed the issue of township taps and it
was made perfectly clear taps were prohibited outside village corporate limits.
However, because the relationship between the two municipalities was good, no written records were taken.
Mr. Adams suggested the two Villages modify the contract and clearly state no taps in the township. Alexandria has a fairly new council, and they deeply regret what has happened.
Councilmember Vance questioned the 1, 600 gallons a day sent to the outside taps in the township. Mr. Vance questioned the accuracy of the meters.
Councilmember Herman stated Alexandria needs to look at their water at a long range perspective. Mr. Herman is not comfortable with a letter of reprimand for allowing the taps outside village limits. Mr. Herman asked Alexandria for an approximate time frame in which the work would be done to resolve the existing problem. Mr. Adams stated in terms of water storage, Alexandria needs first to find the land and get with the County planners. The hesitation has been with Mr. Hammond. Alexandria expects in the next 60 days to begin buying real estate. Jerry Brems noted he anticipates the process sometime in 1993. water mCaoinusncilmember Vance questioned if Granville was notified when extensions to were done.

Mr. Plunkett stated there was little communication in years past with Alexandria,
and there has been difficulty getting Alexandria to pay their water bills until Granville
placed them on the payment plan.
Mr. Vance noted Alexandria's water facility requirements should be in
accordance with Granville's, to which Manager Plunkett agreed, and stated Granville
has had difficulty getting information from Alexandria.
Alexandria Councilmember Mary Jane Fuller stated the new modified contract
should state a need for better communication between the two villages, perhaps
including regular, frequent meeting schedules .
Mayor Eisenberg stated he is not comfortable with the anxiety this situation is
causing the township residents with taps. Everything Mr. Plunkett mentioned needs to
be done in a reasonable amount of time. Granville must modify the existing contract.
Mr. Eisenberg is in favor of granfathering the residents outside village limits who have
taps, and the remaining three connected after 1990 will have to be annexed. The
Granville Utilities Committee and Alexandria Council need to meet every six months or
so to verify that Alexandria is doing things as they are supposed to . If the Utilities
Committee finds Alexandria is not complying, the granfathering will be revoked.
Vice Mayor Marshall agreed with Mr. Eisenberg and stated the modified contract
should state a maximum amount of water that will be pumped into Alexandria. This will
protect Granville from endangering their supply.
Councilmember Vance questioned why the three taps granted after 1990 can't
be grandfathered. Assuming the residents taped-in in good faith, the residents didn't
know they were in violation. Why wouldn't you include them?
Mayor Eisenberg asked if the three taps granted after 1990 could be annexed
onto Alexandria.
Mr. Adams stated he thought there were only two taps granted after 1990, but
they were on Raccoon Valley Road and hard if not impossible to annex.
Councilmember Garrett stated Granville is not about to give Granville Township
residents on Raccoon Valley Road water, why should St. Albyn's township residents
get it?
Mayor Eisenberg stated Granville should stand on the proposal. The 2 or 3 taps
not granfathered would have more than reasonable time to get a new means of water.
One year would be sufficient time. Alexandria could forget about the June deadline.
Councilmember Vance stated the three taps turned on after 1990 should be
grandfathered too.
Councilmember Freytag agreed with Mr. Vance, stating the need to eliminate the
hardships on theses families.

Denise Crews stated it is common engineering practice to install taps all the way
down the water line so you wouldn't have to dig the ground up again when water was
needed. Even though Alexandria sold 19 taps, there could be more along the line.
Mayor Eisenberg stated it wasn't Granville's practice to install the taps with out
the request and payment first.
Manager Plunkett again asked if the three taps could be refunded to the
customers.
Councilmember Vance stated it did not matter how many taps outside the 19
sold were on the line, no more are to be turned on.
Mayor Eisenberg stated reasoning behind not letting the three taps granted after
1990 be grandfathered is a matter of trust, not the amount of water being used.
Councilmember Freytag stated it is unjust to punish these citizens, no one is
punishing the person who really caused the damage.
Mr. Adams asked if Granville wanted to place a penalty on Alexandria.
Pauline O'Neil asked if a penalty would be placed against the Village of
Alexandria or an employee.
Mayor Eisenberg stated Granville was not looking to place a penalty on anyone.
Mary Jane Fuller stated Alexandria was fully aware of its personnel problems.
Mayor Betty Collins noted at Tuesday's Alexandria Council meeting there would
be a solution to the personnel problems.
Vice Mayor Marshall stated he agrees with grandfathering all illegal taps if
Granville grandfathers any at all.
Councilmember Herman noted he agrees that the three taps after 1990 should
be grandfathered as well. Mr. Herman would also like to see the contract modified,
making language clear. He would like Alexandria to report more to Granville on the water situation.
Mr. Adams stated the concerns expressed are items that should be included in the modified contract. The contract needs to be restructured and of time would be a significant amount necessary for drafting. Then determine if both parties agree. It must be passed by both councils too: that will be time consuming. Mr. Adams would be suprised to see something passed in sixty days.
Mr. Freytag stated he would not like to see this issue drug out.
Mr. Hurst stated he agrees with setting a time table but you have to be realistic. Manager Plunkett stated he disagrees the process will take a long time, it could be done in 30 days.
Mayor Eisenberg stated Mr. Plunkett will make a draft and a clean contract will be ready to vote on at the June 16 Granville Village Council meeting.

Mary Jane Fuller stated on behalf of Alexandria, they are very interested in
having periodic meetings with the Granville Utilities Committee and would also like to
see the contract modified.
Manager Plunkett asked if Granville Council wanted a limit to be placed on the
total amount of water sold to Alexandria. Council agreed.
Manger Plunkett stated the bond called for in the existing contract initially
existed in an escrow account. In 1985, the Granville Utilities Committee agreed to
relinquish the escrow account when Alexandria was having a problem with their bills.
Mr. Adams stated the escrow account was released in 1985, but a bond still
exists in Alexandria which Granville is unaware of.
Councilmember Shulman stated he would like to see this agreement in a
resolution form until the contract is modified, so the situation doesn't get any worse. Mary Jane Fullen stated on behalf of Alexandria Council a written resolution
would be written and will be passed at their next meeting.

Donald Bennett
Kevin Bennett was present on behalf of his father,Don Bennett, to comment on the suggestions. Parking Update Committee's Mr. Bennett stated that his father has been active in the community for over 40 years and has owned the Marathon Station at the northeast corner of Broadway and Prospect for 27 years. In the time he has owned the business,Mr. Don Bennett has done things to lielp the Village such as landscaping,allowing free parking,use of public rest rooms, and numerous other things. The announcement that the Committee would like to do away with the Broadway entrance to the Marathon is a "hard knock"to the Bennetts. It comes to the Bennetts as a k"ick in the rear end".Perhaps the committee doesn't mean it as an insult,but it certainly comes across as one.Mr. Kevin Bennett also stated public property owners have property rights.The Village will find that this could be a very costly legal procedure if they wish to force Mr.Bennett to give up his Broadway entrances. Mr. Bennett concluded by stating he hopes this can be resolved by working together.
Mayor Eisenberg stated he thought Mr.Kevin Bennetts actions were premature and he maybe overacting. No action is being taken and is not likely ever to,unless Don Bennett would agree. Buck Sargent,a member of the Parking Committee,stated that he had discussed with Don the closing of bthuesiBnerosas.dway entrances,botli had come to the conclusion that taking the entrances away would be like closing the
Jurgen Pape noted tlie Parking Committee was not aware tlat it would appear in the paper so soon: they had hoped to discuss tlie matter witli Council first.
Councilmember Garrett stated slie had given Council a copy of the Parking Committees' results on April 7th,so that Council could be prepared to discuss the matter. Anything said at Council on April 7th then became public information. That is how the media acquired the suggestions. Mrs. Garrett stated that all the business owners affected by the report had been notified before the newspaper article was published.
COMMITTEE REPORTS
Councilmember Vance reported on tlie Sign Code Committee's meeting ofApril 20th.At that 3 hour meeting, the committee decided to contact the GBPA to solicit how area businesses would like to see the sign code changed. They are going to attend tlie next GBPA meeting to obtain input.

Parking Study
Councilinember Garrett stated the parking committee was formed because people were complaining about inadequate parking in tlie downtown. The Committee,needing to look at the situation to determine if there really wwearseainptreorebsletemd,isnurveyed the downtown busitiesses with a 50%response. The committee had also asked ifpeople an off site parkitig area for employees.
Thc survey colicluded that parking is a problem from 11 3: 0 a.m. to 1 :30 p.m.S, aturday mornings,and on special events. Very few bitsinesses h.ave off street parking for employees,atid einployec's arc not willing to walk a few blocks to work,
Jurgen Pape stated tliat he was looking at the study from a planning aspect,the long range prospective. Mis ar.vPaialalbe)lseuapnpdorstsavainsgatietlluitnetpi|arking and asked Council to consider the possibility of obtaining land now while it needed.
Mrs. Williams stated anytime the subject ofa parking problem comes up, the Elms' Complex is brought into it. Council has faced tlicse issues before and decided to keep parking the way it is. Mrs. Williams noted that

according to Police reports, few accidents have occurred in front of Elms. She feels that parking should stay the
way it is. Mrs. Williams stated that it really upset her to read that article on the front page of the Sentinel. She
suggested that Granville build an overhead garage in Petunia Park if parking is such a problem. Mrs.Williams
also noted the cross walk on Broadway takes up four places.
Mayor Eisenberg stated Granville residents are spoiled. He has never had a problem with parking ifyou
don't mind walking a few blocks. Mayor Eisenberg also stated that he was in agreement with Jurgen concerning
the long range view but, at this time parking is not a problem.
Vice Mayor Marshall stated that he is in agreement with Mr. Eisenberg. Mr. Marshall lives a block and a
half away from downtown and the parking in front of his house is always empty.
Councilmember Vance stated that most of the comments he receives about parking are from out of town
people. Out-of-towners are not aware of all the parking available.
Mayor Eisenberg stated that the GBPA should consider informing out of town visitors where extra
parking is when they book tours.
Councilmember Vance noted that if Council wishes to proceeded with the suggestion of more parking in
front of Bennett's Marathon,maybe Mr. Bennett would consider closing only one entrance on Broadway instead of
both entrances. |
Mrs. Bennett stated they are just getting over the fact their tanks have been taken out and this wasti't an
appropriate time to ask to close their entrances. A more appropriate time to consider this would be when Mr.
Bennett decides to retire.
Councilmember Garrett on behalf of her committee, apologized,stating she thought the people affected by
the survey were under the understanding it was just suggestions and Council had the final decision.
