Discussion regarding Application #09-10:

Charles Nigg stated that they would like to replace the tile shingles on the roof and they have learned that the asbestos tiles cannot be replaced as is.  Ms. Terry stated that she spoke with the Ohio Health Department, Ohio EPA, and The Licking County Health Department and each of them follow the OCEA standards.  Ms. Terry explained that the OCEA standards state that the installer must be certified and they are not allowed to throw tiles from the second story.  The applicant, Mr. Nigg, stated that he understands the restrictions.  Mr. McClow questioned the disposal requirements.  Ms. Terry stated that OCEA is the only restricting force - due to it being a residential property and the Village has no responsibility as to the disposal.  Mr. Mitchell stated that it is the contractor’s responsibility to ensure that they are certified to handle asbestos shingles.  Ms. Terry agreed and she stated that if the Village were to hear of a violation they could phone OCEA.  Mr. Nigg stated that the contractor, Mickey’s Roofing, has indicated that they are certified to handle the removal of asbestos shingles.  Mr. Nigg stated that they are proposing the use of Owens Corning Duration Dimensional shingles in ‘Estate Gray.’  Mr. Burriss asked the current roof color.  Mr. Nigg stated that the color is a faded red tile that looks more gray then red and it was installed somewhere around 1924.  Mr. Burriss questioned if in discussions with the contractor – has he given any idea on the ridges and where they are capped?  Mr. Burriss stated that capping can be done with the shingles Mr. Nigg is proposing.  Mr. Burriss stated that he would suggest that they be capped in a way that is similar to the look of what is there now.  He later stated that capping would be best – rather than lacing.  Mr. Mitchell questioned if the applicant considered the use of  synthetic tiles.  Mr. Nigg stated that they hadn’t looked into any synthetic materials.  Mr. Mitchell stated that it would cost more money than asphalt shingles, but other materials are available.  Mr. Nigg and Patricia Nigg indicated that they probably wouldn’t be a consideration due to money.  Mr. Mitchell agreed that the ridges can be managed with shingles.
