Bill Hoffman of 508 West College commented on Burg Street. He stated that his
concern was the proposal that Burg Street be one way up and Thresher Street one way
down. He stated that before one approves such a proposal, perhaps the members of
Council should drive down Thresher Street.
Marilyn Jung stated that when Burg Street had last been improved, problems
became apparent. She stated that the side curbing and the height of bricks are uneven.
She stated that she agrees with the Hoffmans',she would not like to have the traffic
coming down Thresher Street. She stated that with the added traffic, the road would
become more dangerous. She stated that she was against the proposal that Burg and
Thresher be one way.
Manager Plunkett stated that the reasons these questions are coming about is
because the Village is about to begin the 1994 paving program. One of the streets to
be paved is Burg. He stated that the Streets and Sidewalks committee had looked at
Burg Street and believed that paving the street was the only way to solve the problem.
He stated that there was some question as to whether the asphalt would stick to the
brick. Manager Plunkett stated that the Street Department and the staff needs to make
a decision concerning what needs to be done with Burg Street, if anything. Mr. Plunkett
stated that there had been one accident last fall, and several tires had been damaged
where drivers had hit the curb. He stated that some of the bricks on Burg Street have
sunk. He stated that taking out those bricks and relaying them would be a labor
intensive project that would take away from the Service Department's other assigned tasks for the year.
Sara Jean Wilhelm stated that she had seen the problems on Burg Street the like snow plow not being able to get down the street. She stated that Burg Street will not take heavy traffic. She stated that she parks on Thresher Street because there is not enough parking on College Street. She stated that Burg Street needed some long term improvements. She stated in her opinion, Council needs to look into long term improvements for Burg Street.
Dave Goldblatt of 419 Burg Street stated that he objected to the paving of the brick portion of Burg Street. He stated that perhaps instead of replacing the bricks, the two foot unleveled lip could be replaced to be level with the brick. He stated that the accident that happened took place on the asphalt and not on the brick section of Burg Street. He stated that he knew that Burg Street had problems, but the issue needs more discussion.
Lori Green of Burg Street statedt-hat she was opposed to paving of the bricks on Burg Street. She stated that 20 years ago, huge chunks of pavement piled up at the bottom of Burg Street because the asphalt wouldn't stick to the brick. She stated that the brick section of the road required far less maintenance. She stated that if the tVeirlmlagiemwpraosvegmoienngtsto. spend money for improvements, they should think about the long

Mayor Eisenberg stated that it was an interesting suggestion to replace the curb
and gutter unstead of the brick portion of Burg Street. He stated that if that were to be
done, it might be possible to pick up a small amount of width.
Service Director Mark Zarbaugh stated that a small amount of width may be
obtained, however, the hillside would have to be dug into, which might make it difficult
to determine what one would be getting into.
Manager Plunkett stated that Council may want an engineer to look at that.
Bill Clamurro of 529 Burg Street stated that the problem on Burg Street is that
it's very narrow and very difficult to widen because of the hill. He stated that Burg Street
should remain two way. He stated that Council should look into the possibility of
widening Burg Street . He stated that the bricks seem to hold up better than the asphalt
and in his opinion, the most important thing is the widening of Burg Street.
Lori Green stated that she did not want to see Burg Street widened. She stated
that two cars can pass safely on Burg Street. She stated that she would not like to see
the street widened because the vehicles would travel faster and there are children in
the area.
Clarke Wilhelm stated that when the weather wet, the road is a slippery
nightmare. He stated that there is no curb going up Thresher Street. He stated that a
car could very well bounce off the railing wall and go under a house. He stated that he
feared the safety on that street if it's heavily used.
Ed Vance of 248 Thornwood Drive stated that he would like to support what is
being said here tonight. He stated that he felt that the little brick road should be saved. Councilmember Garrett stated that she would like to speak on behalf of three
citizens who contacted her concerning Burg Street. One resident stated that she had
lived on Burg Street for three years and the amount of traffic has increased
tremendously. The increase in traffic adds to the problem. She stated that the citizens
thought that widening the road 8 to 12 inches would help.
Councilmember Garrett stated that her son had had an accident on the brick
section of Burg Street. The accident had been caused by the Someone coming down narrowness of the road. vehicle. the hill put their brakes on and lost control and hit her son's
Lori Green stated that that accident is really the only accident she can remember in history. She stated that when you have an issue where you have a narrow road, only the people who are unfamiliar with that road abuse it. She stated that in her opinion, there are alot of solutions before paving and widening.
Bill Hoffman stated that it was natural coming around the curve to accelerate easily without thinking. He stated that it would be helpful to have rumble strips to give drivers a warning that they should slow down.
COMMITTEE REPORTS

Councilmember Shulman reported on the Street &Sidewalks committee meeting
of August 8. The committee had met on Burg Street to consider possible repair
alternatives. He stated that the committee had walked the length of the brick section of
the street. One of the alternatives was grinding off the brick to meet the gutter plate. He
stated that the committee's view had been that the road would become narrower
because of this border. Mr. Shulman stated that last week's Granville Sentinel stated
that he personally was the "protector of the bricks". He stated that residents have
informed him that the brick section had been paved and the pavement washed away.
He stated that he had mentioned to Manager Plunkett that Burg Street could be made
one way up to take away dangerous situations. He stated that the committee also had
discussed digging up the bricks and putting them back, but that would be a labor
intensive project. He stated that the southwest side had been redone last year and it
was starting to sink again. He stated that the project would take away from the Service
Department's tasks.
Service Director Mark Zarbaugh stated that according to his Senior Equipment
Operators, Burg Street had been paved in 1978. In 1978, Burg had been paved to the
top and bottom. He stated in his opinion, the reason the asphalt didn't stick then was
because there was a crack at the top of the hill which allowed rain to get in and help
wash it off. He stated that he personally feels that the asphalt will stick this time
because this would be a continuous, seamless, paving all the way up the top of the hill.
The continuous paving would prohibit the weather from getting under the asphalt.
Ed Vance stated that it would be wise to look at other alternatives. He stated that
Burg Street has a steep part and when one brakes on asphalt, the asphalt tends to
slide and roll downhill, pushing the asphalt up. He stated that he didn't think the asphalt would come off, but it would roll and ripple.
Councilmember Montgomery asked if perhaps it would help to make Burg Street
one way down unstead of one way up?
Councilmember Shulman stated that on the lower part of Thresher Street, parked people on the east side of the street. He stated that if one made Burg one way down,
you would have people going up and making a left turn across traffic.
Mayor Eisenberg stated that Council needed to work on a solution for Burg Street. He stated that the Streets and Sidewalk Committee should explore some of the new ideas presented tonight.
Manager Plunkett stated that perhaps Council should appoint an exo-fficio member who lives in that area to enliven the conversations.
Councilmember Garrett reported on the Planning Commission meeting of August 15. At that meeting, a sign application had been tabled, Mary Bline's architectural review application was denied, and two architectural review applications were approved. Four sign applications had been submitted for Erinwood with three getting approval. A work session had been held to discuss placement of a sign on South Main Street by the Sentinel building. The board also recommended a location for the
1

Page 6
placement of HVAC units at 118 South Main Street. Mrs. Garrett stated that the board
had recommended the east side of the building beginning at the north east corner of
the building.
Councilmember Shulman reported on the North Pearl Street Study Committee
meeting of August 4. At that meeting, the committee mainly went over ideas. The
committee did question the status on the rumble strips that had been discussed to be
placed on North Pearl Street. He stated that one of the ideas that had been discussed
had been more regular police/ speed enforcement in the area near the elementary
school. He stated that the committee had discussed sending letters to Dension asking
that perhaps they mention to their students the traffic concerns on Pearl Street. He
stated that also, since the fifth graders are moving to the high school, perhaps the bus
patterns could change.
Mayor Eisenberg asked if anything that Council expects the committee to bring
back in their final report was written?He stated that he thought the committee should
have a charter so that the committee understands what Council wants from them.
Councilmember Shulman stated that one of the committee members is studying
the hazardous materials regulations to see about the possibilities of eliminating them
on North Pearl Street . He stated that some of the residents are monitoring truck
patterns to see which companies travel that road consistently. He stated that the
committee would them write to the companies encouraging them to use an alternative route.
Manager Plunkett stated that he received a telephone response from ODOT
saying that the Village can't put rumble strips on North Pearl Street. He stated that he is
going to write to ODOT to get their reasoning for the denial in writing.

118 South Main Street -Sensibilities
Mayor Eisenberg stated that he regretted that it had been necessary for Mr.
Vance to resign from Council because of the concerns at 118 South Main Street. Mayor
Eisenberg stated that he personally believed that Mr. Vance had always acted in the
most honorable way. He stated that his own personal take was Mr. Vance had bent
over backwards and if anything, perhaps did not act on the best interest of his business
during Council's discussions concerning 118 South Main Street.
Mr. Vance stated that he appreciated the comments.
Mayor Eisenberg stated that Council needed to discuss the placement of the air
conditioner units and the trash location.
Planning Commission member Larry Huey stated that the Planning Commission
had looked over the sketches that Mr. Vance drew with the proposed locations for the
HVAC units. Mr. Huey stated that he did have the sketches with him. He stated that the
Planning Commission recommended a placement which was not on any of the
sketches. He stated that the Planning Commission did not know what the back section
of the building was going to look like with the suggested improvements. He stated that
the Planning Commission had recommended that the units be placed in the east end of
the building. He stated that there were still 10 to 12 feet for location of the trash
containers. He stated that that location would not be in the front yard of the
McKivergins.
Mayor Eisenberg stated that he thought Council's position had been that
Sensibilities Inc.,could proceed with whatever plan they choose, however, Council
would contribute only to the limit that was necessary to keep the building in a safe and sound condition.
Mr. Huey stated that the Planning Commission's discussions concluded that the
main entrance of the building should be maintained and not have clutter. He stated that another concern was that the units not interfere with the park. He stated that it Planning Commission' was s policy that air conditioning units be located at the back of side of buildings. He stated that as long as the neighboring property didn't mind the unit on the side, the Planning Commission would approve it.
Mayor Eisenberg asked if the Planning Commission followed the same rules for commercial properties as residential?
Mr. Huey stated that the Planning Commission tries to follow the same rules for everyone.
Mr. Vance asked if the HVAC units had been discussed at the past Monday's Planning Commission meeting?
Mr. Huey answered yes.

M. Vance stated that he understands what the Planning Commission is
recommending. He stated that that location interferes with plans that Sensibilities Inc.,
presented to Council during the negotiations of the lease for outside displays and
tables at which customers could sit down. Mr. Vance stated that those air conditioners
would obviously take up at least one parking space. He stated that Sensibilities Inc.,
had not said the air conditioners would be screened. They had said that if Council
wished, appropriate screening would be applied. He stated that for the HVAC units to
have proper efficiency, they needed 3 feet of clear space. He stated that if the units
were too close, the coils would burn out. He stated that he could show the
manufacturer's directions recommending the area restrictions. He stated that if the
manufacturer's directions are not followed, the Village would pay more for maintenance
and Sensibilities Inc.,would pay more for utility bills.
Mayor Eisenberg asked how large the trash containers were?
Mr. Vance stated that they are the size one would have at a residence. He
stated that he thought they were 36"by 30".He stated that a comment had been made
about their garbage. He stated that Sensibilities would not have smelly garbage. He
stated that it was a retail establishment with mostly paper waste. He stated that 99.9%
of their trash would be cardboard and paper products. He stated that their business
does not include food preparation and smelly garbage is not the type of waste they
would be generating. He stated that Sensibilities Inc.,will run a clean operation. He
stated that they hoped to keep the grounds cleaner than they have been for years. Mr. Vance stated that Sensibilities Inc.,will be working with the Tree &
Landscape commission on a landscape plan for the building. He stated that if the
HVAC units are placed at the northeast corner, he believes they will be noticeable from
the park. He stated Sensibilities Inc.,had been trying to pick the location with east impact on the Village as a whole. Mr. Vance stated that Sensibilities Inc.,would like to place a door and a window in the back section of the building. He stated that they had
thought it would be nice to have some natural light in the back section of the building. Mr. Vance stated that if Council doesn't require screening around the HVAC
units, they will take up 9 feet on the south end and would be visible from the park. He stated that Sensibilities Inc.,leased the building through a successful and wanted proposal process to use the property on that side of the building for customer use. He stated that placing the HVAC units on the southeast side would take away from the area they wanted to use and takes away a parking space.
Vice Mayor asked if the HVAC units were not screened, would they take up a 6'X9' rectangle?
Mr. Vance stated yes.
Vice Mayor Marshall drew a picture on the chalk board of where the units were to be placed.
Lisa McKivergin stated that she had spoken with Mr. Vance concerning Sensibilities placing their garbage behind her garage. She stated that Sensibilities Inc., could place one of their HVAC units at the north side of the building in the east corner
1

and the other at the east side of the building at the north corner. She stated that she
wanted Sensibilities Inc.,to be successful as a business. She stated that she just
wanted to protect her property.
Mr. Vance stated that he had had a conversation with Ms. McKivergin discussing
the possible shared garbage facilities. He stated that he showed her where Sensibilities
Inc.,wanted to place the air conditioner units and asked her to consider the location.
He stated that she had offered to lease the trash receptacle on her property for a dollar
a year. Mr. Vance stated that Sensibilities Inc. considered Ms. McKivergin's offer and
decided that it was not a good business investment because the property could be sold
or other problems could arise. He stated that Ms. McKivergin stated that she would get
back to him on the placement of the air conditioner units but never did.
Mayor Eisenberg asked if Sensibilities was willing to accept Ms. McKivergin's
offer. Mr. Vance stated that since he had not heard from Ms. McKivergin concerning
the placement of the HVAC units, he went to the Planning Commission and presented
the plan to them. He stated that Sensibilities Inc.,did not want to be dependent neighbor. on a He stated that Ms. McKivergin could move or a number of things could
happen. Mr. Vance stated that he did not do this to be derogatory in any manner. He
stated that Sensibilities Inc.,had no intention of blocking off the McKivergin's access. Mayor Eisenberg stated that Council must make a decision and move on. He
stated that Council should make a decision on the placement of the air conditioners and leave the trash area separate.
After a discussion, Council agreed that the air conditioner units would be
installed flush with the end of the building, side by side along the east wall at the northeast corner of the building.
Manager Plunkett stated that he had not received an estimate for the tuck
pointing at 118 South Main Street. He stated that he had received three estimates on the roof and shed repair.
Mr. Vance stated that he could have Sensibilities Inc.,contractor perform the work to finish the shed portion for under $ 1, 000.
rebuilt.Vice Mayor Marshall stated that one of the estimates said that the roof should be
Mayor Eisenberg stated that Council has a series of estimates with numbers close enough to settle and proceed with the ordinance. He stated that he recommended that the Village contribute3 $,000 to the restoration of the shed portion of the building, 1$,000 for the interior alterations to the back section of the building, and es1t,i0m0a0tefosr the repairs of the roof. He stated that the tuck pointing would be left until are received.
Mr. Vance stated that he felt obligated to mention the flaws in the proposals that Council had received. He stated that the roof had been leaking for a long time and is going to give the Council trouble because it is not pitched. He stated that in his opinion, the roof needed to have a pitch.

Page 11
Law Director Hurst asked if Mr. Vance was suggesting that all the estimates be
rejected and start over?
Mr. Vance stated that he doesn't want that to happen, he just wanted to let the
Council know that they may run into extra expenses. Mr. Vance stated that he is trying
to be helpful, not argumentative. He stated that if Council appropriates the money and
problems arise, the work won't be performed until more money is appropriated.
Mayor Eisenberg stated that $5,000 is Council's best guess at this point. He
stated that if a situation arises where there will be extra expenses, Council will deal
with that when it is discovered.
Mr. Vance stated that he wanted to go on record telling Council that that type of
roofing proposed is not correct. He stated that one needed to make sure there was
proper flashing so that there is no leaking.
Councilmember Montgomery stated that the only proposal which talks about the
roofing is the Hutchinson proposal.
After a long discussion, Vice Mayor Marshall moved to adopt Ordinance No. 25-

NEW BUSINESS
Newark Granville Road -Pathwav, Street, Storm Sewer Design
Service Director Mark Zarbaugh stated that Council had received a memo regarding the plans for Newark Granville Road. He stated that the prices for an engineer to design the project ranged widely. He stated that he and Village Planner
Doug Tailford had wrestled with the issue and suggested Bird &Bull to perform the design work. He stated that Bird &Bull had been the Village's engineer for many years. He stated that the staff had a good working relationship with Bird &Bull. He stated that CurryWillis &Grove is a young company which had done some similar work for Licking County. He stated that he spoke with the County and they stated that they had no problems with Curry Willis'work. Mr. Zarbaugh stated it was his opinion that Bird &Bull would be the better bet.
Mayor Eisenberg asked if any information was found to say that Curry Willis was not competent to perform the work?
Mr. Zarbaugh answered no.
Mayor Eisenberg stated that it may be time to take on a different engineer and not automatically give everything to Bird &Bull. He stated that it may do Bird &Bull some good to have some competition.
Councilmember Montgomery asked if there was anything Mr. Zarbaugh found negative about Curry Willis? 1

Mr. Zarbaugh stated that Curry Willis hasn't been in the business more than five
years and the only similar project they had performed was with Licking County. Mr.
Zarbaugh stated that the county felt Curry Willis did an acceptable job.
Councilmember Montgomery asked if the County had said anymore than that
Curry Wills performed an acceptable job?
Mr. Zarbaugh stated that the county indicated that Curry Willis did what was
asked and expected. Mr. Zarbaugh stated that it was not an easy decision to make. He
stated that he had a good working relationship with Bird &Bull, however, he saw no
reason Curry Willis couldn't perform the work.
Mr. Zarbaugh stated that the project would eventually be submitted as an ISTEA
project. He stated that both engineers are fully aware of that.
Mayor Eisenberg stated that he didn't like to step on the judgment of Mr.
Zarbaugh, however he felt this time it was appropriate to go with the low bidder.
Manager Plunkett stated that the staff is saying that Curry Willis is competent to
perform the job. He stated that the staff has an established working relationship with
Bird &Bull and a comfort level. He stated that the staff is not going to be hurt by
