COMMITTEE REPORT
Councilmember Shulman reported on the Granville Planning
Commission' s January 19th meeting. At that meeting, five items
were to be considered. One passed, two were turned down, and two
were deferred. The two deferrals were caused by discrepancies in
the new Zoning Code. When the new Zoning Code was passed, GPC
knew there would be some inconsistencies, and now would be a good time to clear some up.
Councilmember Garrett reported on the Parking Update Study Committee' s meeting held Wednesday January 13. The committee is
still considering options, and will render a decision in March.
OLD BUSINESS
Ordinance No. 51-92, "An Ordinance To Amend Section Codified 925. 18 Of The Ordinances Of The Village Of Granville Establishing
Water Regulations And Charges And To Repeal Existing Section
925. 18 Of The Said Codified· Ordinances, "was moved to be taken off the table by Vice- Mayor Marshall. Councilmember Herman
seconded.
Manager Plunkett noted that the Ordinance was presented in two forms because Joe Hickman would like to propose to Council utility billing be done on a monthly basis instead of bi- monthly, as it is now. Also, the discount for water used over 75,000 gallons was eliminated from the ordinance at Councils request.
Joe Hickman stated by using a monthly billing system, the Village would be able to better serve its customers. One of the
barriers the water department see now is that some homeowners have plumbing problems that result in high water usages. With
the current bim- onthly billing, it often takes two months to spot homeowners' problems, resulting in high water bills. As a result, the customer is very unhappy. By using a monthly billing system, Mr. Hickman believes, some of those problems will be eliminated, resulting in better customer service.
requCesutr.rently 94 residents receive a monthly water bill at their accurate bTihllis. monthly bill is an estimated figure rather than an meter readings. This can be easily corrected with actual monthly
Monthly billing would lower the outstanding balance of money owed to the water and sewer funds by customers. As of now, the monthly outstanding balance for water alone exceeds $6,000. The downside of this proposal is that additional mailings and billing would increase annual costs by approximately $1,500.

Councilmembers Freytag and Vance felt that the proposed
monthly billing would cost the Village more than the estimated
annual $1,500, because there increased labor hours will arise out
of monthly billing.
Manager Plunkett stated that the Village staff was willing
to reorganize their time to provide this service. No additional
persons will be required to complete the tasks.
Councilmember Herman stated that Council should not second
guess its staff as to whether they could handel more responsibilities.
Ordinance No. 51-92 was moved for adoption, and the title
read by Councilmember Herman. Seconded by Vice- Mayor Marshall. Roll call vote: Herman yes, Vice- Mayor Marshall yes, Garrett
yes, Shulman Five yes, Vance no, Freytag no, Mayor Eisenberg yes. yes votes. Two no votes. Motion carried. Ordinance No.
51-92 was adopted.
Resolution No. 930- 2, A" Resolution To Endorse Sanitary Land Fill Fees As Recommended By The Coshocton, Fairfield, Licking, Perry Solid Waste Committee."Solid Waste Coordinator, Carol Phillips
wcoasstspreosfelnatndtofiinlflorm Council of the reasons for the lowering fees.
Ms. Phillips stated failure to approve the Resolution to the lower sanitary fees would mean that the sanitary fees would rise far higher than their current level. The proposed lowered rate is really a small rate increase, not actually a rate decrease. Ms. Phillips spoke of a number of factors surrounding the solid waste issue, none of which were very encouraging. The main
reason the Committee would like to lower the fee increase is because they are going to be making a profit that is greater than they can dispose of by law.
Motion to remove Resolution No. 930-2 from the table was made by Councilmember Vance. Seconded by Councilmember Freytag. Resolution No. 93-2 adopted.
