The Granville Village Council adopted the following legislation at the January
4, 2017 regular meeting:
Ordinance No. 11-2016, An Ordinance to Authorize the Village Manager to Execute a Contract Providing for the Sale of Water to Owens Corning Sales, LLC
The Village of Granville has provided water to Owens Corning for more than twenty-five years. The previous agreement expired on December 31, 2016. This new agreement continues the provisions of the previous agreement regarding water supply from the Village to Owens Corning. The rates remain the same as currently billed, which are 1.3 times the rate charged to the Village users living within the corporate boundaries. It is the same rate charged to the Village of Alexandria and Kendal.
Resolution No. 2017-01, A Resolution Authorizing the Village Manager to Advertise for Bids for Various Village Projects and Items Throughout 2017
This resolution requests Council’s permission to proceed with advertising for bids for items or projects for the entire year. The Village complies with all local and state purchasing rules and regulations. These projects and items were approved expenditures in the 2017 budget. Providing staff with approval to advertise for bids with one resolution streamlines the bidding process and Council agendas. The projects or items that need to go through the bid process for 2017 include street improvement project, the purchase of water chemicals, lime sludge removal, New Burg Street Lift Station generator, crosswalk countdown lights, South Cherry Street storm sewer replacements, Sewer RAS control panel, and Welsh Hills Road water main upgrade.
Resolution No. 2017-02, A Resolution to Permit the Demolition of the Ace Morgan Theater at 221 West College Street
This resolution authorizes the demolition of the Ace Morgan Theater on the Denison campus, located at 221 West College Street. The Granville Historical Society has indicated that the structure has no particular historic value. Denison proposes to replace the structure with a parking area for the new arts complex. The Planning Commission has reviewed the demolition request and has recommended that it be approved.
Resolution No. 2017-03, A Resolution to Authorize the Village Manager to Sign a Memorandum of Understanding with the Licking County Parks District
Village staff met with Licking County Parks Executive Director Bob Williams, who provided the Village with the attached agreement memorializing the Village’s commitment to help participate in the maintenance of the bike path through the Village. This resolution, when presented to Council, would authorize the Village Manager to enter into the memorandum of understanding with the Licking County Park District to pay 50% of any major improvements to the bike path as well as do routine maintenance on the pathway.
Resolution No. 2017-04, A Resolution to Authorize the Village Manager to Sign a Memorandum of Understanding with the Licking County Humane Society
In accordance with Chapter 1717 of the Ohio Revised Code, the Licking County Commissioners have established the Licking County Humane Society to prevent cruelty to animals throughout the county. Section 1717.07 of the ORC indicates that the "legislative authority of such municipal Corporation shall pay monthly to such agent, from the general revenue fund of the municipal Corporation, such salary… not less than five dollars." Executive Director Lori Carlson provided the Village with an undated memorandum of understanding for the humane society to provide services to the Village. In addition to the statutory requirements, these services will be of assistance to help provide for the appropriate treatment of Village animals and to assist the Village in arbitrating disagreements in neighborhoods where opinions may differ as to the maintenance of pets. This resolution authorizes the Village Manager to enter into the memorandum of understanding with the Licking County Humane Society to provide services at a rate of $40.00 per month.
All legislation is available for review at the Village office during regular business hours, which are normally 8:00am - 4:30pm, Monday through Friday. The Village office is located at 141 East Broadway.
