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. The next morning at 8:30 a.m.,Mr. Hueman called the water department. The Water department told Mr. Hueman that they were going to shut off the wPlautnekreattt 2fi2rs1t.North Pearl.

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.
