Resolution No. 953- 3,A "Resolution To Award The Bid For ContractD" "T,he
East Granville Sewer Lift Station,To Performance Excavating Incorporated,And To
Authorize The Village Manager To Enter Into A Contract Thereforw,"as introduced,
read in full,and moved for adoption by Councilmember Freytag. Seconded by Councilmember Garrett.
Manager Plunkett stated that the lift station is the key to the sewering of east Granville. He stated that the lift station will service all areas in the east end of Granville
and north and south of State Route 16. The sewage will be pumped into the lift station
and then pumped out to Galway Drive and eventually into a major trunk sewer that will
someday have to be built. The lift station is necessary now to service property east and
west of Cherry Valley Road and north and south of SR 16. He stated that the sewer will
be deep enough to handle the area south of the SR 16,the Keny property,and all
properties in Granville Village south of SR 16,including the site purchased by Bob Evans.
Manager Plunkett stated that Bob Evans and SuperAmerica had submitted their proposals for building their portion of the sewers. He stated that there had been a difference of opinion between the Village's engineers and Bob Evans' engineers as to the cost of building those sewers. Bob Evans and SuperAmerica had asked the Village to make up the cost difference. The issue hasn't been resolved yet because the Village's engineer wants to meet with SuperAmerica and Bob Evans to discuss the matter further. Manager Plunkett stated that the Westgate Drive sewer was contractI E" "of the bid,and the low bid for that project was 3$15,670. He stated that he had talked the Village's engineers and made a rough calculation as to what the assessment to the property owners on Westgate Drive and Welsh Hills School would be. He stated the he used half in the calculation because ifthe Village didn't consider the entire area and use bigger pipe size and depth to serve other drainage area properties the cost would be about half He stated that would mean levying assessments and that Welsh Hills School is the driving force behind the Westgate Drive sewers. other Vice Mayor Marshall questioned ifthe assessments could be figured on something than acreage?

Manager Plunkett stated that in some cases,a combination of acreage and front
footage could be used but,didn't believe it would work in this case. He stated that by
basing the assessments on acreage,one has a finite,known quantity.He stated that one
could not accurately calculate the number of occupants that would use the sewer on any
of those parcels of commercially- zoned property.
Councilmember Shulman questioned where the lift station would be located.
Manager Plunkett stated that the lift station would be located northeast of Wendys
on property owned by Murphys. The sewer will connect to a manhole to the north east
corner of Westgate Drive and Cherry Valley Road.
Councilmember Freytag questioned what the"driving force"to build the sewers
was and how much acreage would be served with the sewers?
Manager Plunkett stated that the south side of SR 16,Wendys,Welsh Hills
School,Bob Evans and McDonalds would need the sewers. He stated that the lift station
could service the Keny property and points east and south ofNewark-Granville Road.
Manager Plunkett stated that the lift station would be funded with the $1. 1 million
sewer note,as will the Westgate Drive sanitary sewer. He stated that some of the cost
needed to be funded by assessments. Sewer tap fees would go into the Capital
Improvements Fund,which would be used to improve the sewer system and can be used
to pay the debt. He stated that Bob Evans Farms had apparently agreed to the Planning Commission requirements.
Councilmember Shulman stated that he was against the resolution because he felt
Granville was building something that could serve much wider areas without the ends accompanying it.He stated the if Granville builds the sewers,more and more development will come into the Village. He stated that in his opinion, tied the sewer should be into whatever happens with SuperAmerica and Bob Evans.
Vice Mayor Marshall stated that the area south of SR 16 is part of a bigger picture and in his opinion,Council needed to get on with building the sewers. He stated that it is unlikely Bob Evans will g"o awaya"nd if the Village waits too long,the Welsh Hills School's calendar will be messed up and the Village could end up with a septic system at the Welsh Hills School that the Village would rather not have.
Councilmember Freytag stated that Council would be accelerating development by building the sewers.
Manager Plunkett stated that if sewer is not available in the area,the Village could
see a law suit and perhaps eventual detachment ofthe area to the City ofNewark. He ostcacteudr.that if the property went to Newark,a 21 st Street style of development would likely
Councilmember Freytag stated that he would like to see the Resolution tabled until Council was aware what the Welsh Hills School would do. He stated that he may be inclined to support the Resolution if the school is going to need the sewers.

Manager Plunkett stated that the Granville Milling Company had requested that
Council waive a portion of the sewer capacity fee if they tap into the new sewer within a
defined period. He stated that they are asking the Village to waive a portion of the fees
because the Village had waived a portion of the water tap fees in east Granville.
Mayor Eisenberg stated that he wasn't in favor of waiving the fees. Council
agreed.
Councilmember Freytag questioned if the New Burg Street Storm Sewer Enclosure
Sidewalk project should be built?

Works Program had denied the Village's grant request for the project. He stated that there
currently was enough money in the sidewalk fund to complete the project if Council
wanted to complete the project.

storm sewers. He stated that Council had a prioritized list of sidewalks that needed to be built.
