Resolution No. 2017-44, A Resolution Authorizing the Village Manager to Enter into a Contract for 2017 and 2018 with William Caskey for Services as Chief of Police
This resolution expresses Council’s desire to recognize and formalize a contract with Chief Caskey to retain him as police chief. The impact and continuous improvement in the police department is significant. While all of the officers have played a part in improving services and the connection with our community, Chief Caskey’s influence in that progress has been a major contributing factor.
Resolution No. 2017-45, A Resolution Accepting the Amounts and Rates as Determined by the Budget Commission and Authorizing the Necessary Tax Levies and Certifying Them to the County Auditor
The annual resolution is required to accept the inside property tax millage (2.5 mills) and estimated revenues that were determined by the Licking County Budget Commission. (Inside Millage is un-voted millage that is within the 10-mill statutory limitation on un-voted property taxes.) The millage is unchanged from prior years and will generate approximately $416,000 in revenue for the Village. This resolution also authorizes the County Auditor to levy that inside millage on behalf of the Village.
Resolution No. 2017-46, A Resolution Endorsing the Granville Recreation District’s Plan to Tear Down the Existing Wildwood Park Playground and Construct a New Playground at Wildwood Park, as Endorsed by the T J Evans Foundation
This resolution expresses Council’s endorsement for the Granville Recreation District’s rebuild of the Wildwood Park playground to make it more accessible, ADA compliant and more maintenance-free, as endorsed by the T J Evans Foundation. Council endorses the GRD in using the existing materials to raise funds for the project through sales and/or auction.
