OLD BUSINESS
Pathway At The Mill -
Manager Hickman made a presentation to Council to request their direction for proposed
storm sewer and bike path improvements at the 'mill"between the Wastewater Plant and South
Main Street. Noting that for decades storm water has run off from the upper part of the village
down to the mill's property. Four years ago the staff proposed to put a storm sewer in from Pearl
Street to the Raccoon Creek. He then noted a stumbling block has been in obtaining from the T.J. Evans Foundation. an easement Now,the Township trustees need to expand the cemetery and have asked to make a land swap with the village. In order to accommodate this,the Township and Village will swap parcels east ofthe wastewater plant.
The Township has offered to finance half the fee of approximately 3$,300 which include,bollards,fence,and striping the pathway. The s Shop,the mill,and township manager hopes to get cooperation from Abes Body trustees to help maintain their respective portions of the path area. Following a discussion of truck traffic using the bike path,it was noted that a right of way has never been enforced on mill truck traffic. It was suggested that the area business be notified by letter of notification of using the path inappropriately.
Manager Hickman was asked to prepare a resolution to pursue this project for the September 3, 1997 meeting.
Manager Hickman then asked Council to consider the storm sewer proposal from South Pearl Street to Raccoon Creek. He noted the alternative proposal would be to start the storm tsheewmerilwl porrokpjuesrttyn. orth ofthe bike path at the end at Raccoon Creek,leaving open ditch drainage to
Councilmember Bellman suggested this work be done by the Service Department to which
Service Director Zarbaugh noted that more personnel would be needed if the Service Departrr ent was to make more infrastructure improvements.
