Ann Rudrauff,director of Licking County Community Mental Health was present
to inform Council of the replacement levy that will be on the ballot in November. The levy
is a $1 mil replacement levy which would be used to keep six agencies running in Licking
County. She stated that she would be visiting townships and cities in the area to answer questions and get good visibility to the public concerning the levy. Ms. Rudrauff asked
Council for their support on the levy in November.
Mayor Eisenberg thanked Ms. Rudrauff for her information and time.
Clifton Crais asked Council if they had any plans to take care of traffic problems in Granville and on what time table would the problems be taken care of.
Manager Plunkett stated that the Village had performed traffic studies and
petitioned ODOT for a traffic control device at New Burg Street and North Pearl Street. ODOT denied the Village's request and instead chose to install highway signs. The Village asked ODOT to consider rerouting SR 661 around Granville and their response had been perhaps sometime after 2017M."r. Plunkett stated that the State had built SR 661 and that they had no intention of abandoning it though Granville. He stated that he had read Mr. Crais' letters and understands his concerns. The Village patrols the area and issues citations for anyone disobeying the speed limit.
Mr. Crais expressed concern with the speed at which trucks travel Pearl Street. He stated that his question referred to not just traffic problems on Pearl Street but throughout the entire village. He stated that residents have serious concerns with traffic. Mr. Crais

asked if Council was accepting the answer from ODOT that they would not do anything to
resolve the problem or if Council was pursuing the matter further?
Manager Plunkett stated that he had accepted the answer. He stated that Granville
did not have control of the road,ODOT had jurisdiction.
Mr. Crais stated that if Council thinks creatively,there could be something done to
attack the issue. He stated that large trucks should be banned in the Village. He stated that
there are lots of bad laws in the state and that Council can take no action or they can take
action and try to change the law. He stated that he had been in contact with the Attorney
General's office,and they seemed to think that a municipality had a lot of options.
Mayor Eisenberg stated that the Village couldn't bar trucks from traveling on a
state highway. He stated that the Village could not do what is illegal under state law.
Mr. Crais stated that the Village should enforce the 25 mph speed limit and cite
people for traveling at 27 miles per hour,as the law states. He stated that the traffic study
performed did not explore traffic in the entire village and that the study was extremely
incomplete.
Mayor Eisenberg suggested that Mr. Crais continue with his studies and inform
Council if anything turns up.
Councilmember Shulman stated that the committee that had been formed to study
the traffic issue had only met twice. He stated that a lot of ideas were brought forth but the
committee hadn't made a report to Council, and Council can't do anything if they are not
informed.
COMMITTEE REPORTS
Councilmember Freytag reported on the Recreation Commission meeting. At that
meeting,two new members were appointed. Five people had expressed interest in the
vacancies;the three candidates not chosen were assigned to committees to assist the
Commission. The Commission is still interested in building the road across the bikepath at
Wildwood Park. There had been discussion of installing a phone at Wildwood Park in the
