Due to the July 4th festivities in the Village, it was decided that there would not be a Council meeting scheduled for July 1, 1998 unless otherwise noted by the manager.

Dow Location

 Council discussed the water situation at the Dow location. It was noted that there is a potential tenant that would like the Village to operate the water treatment plant at that location. There were several issues of concern: 1) Who is potential buyer? 2) The deal is only for the purchase of one building on this site. What would happen if other purchasers did not wish to use a water facility operated by the Village? 3) Capital costs. What will happen when/if the tenant leaves? 4) Environmental liability. Who covers the cost? 

Councilmember Freytag feels that Southwest Licking Water District should be contacted to discuss their intentions and whether they plan to run water lines within the Granville School District boundaries.

 Manager Hickman will initiate contact with Southwest Licking Water District in an effort to communicate Granville’s concerns and needs at the Dow location.

Transportation Improvement District

 It was suggested that consideration be made for the appointment of one councilmember and one citizen to the TID Board. This will be further discussed at the July 15th meeting.

Community Service District Law Director Hurst addressed the issue of the Community Service District ordinance, noting that this particular ordinance does not "spell out" the uses. He added the fact that this ordinance had not been reviewed for some time and may need to be updated to make it coincide with the rest of the ordinances. He noted that in the past Council has been adament about what is to be permitted and what is to be excluded. He noted for instance that a day care center is not specified in this section. He noted that as development has increased in the Community Service District it may be time to review this section to consider and suggest changes.

 Vice Mayor McGowan asked Manager Hickman to make note of the uncut grass situation at the "Old Middle School".
