The Granville Village Council adopted the following legislation at the April 4, 2012 regular meeting:
Ordinance No. 04-2012, An Ordinance Authorizing the Village Manager to Enter into a Right-of-Access Agreement with Park National Bank and the Granville Historical Society for Properties Adjacent to 118 South Main Street
This ordinance authorizes the Village Manager to enter into an agreement with both Park National Bank and the Granville
Historical Society to allow for Right-of-Access to the parking lot located on Village property at 118 South Main Street. On December 21, 2011, Village Council passed Ordinance No. 39-2011, An Ordinance Declaring the Pass Through Between St. Luke's Episcopal Church and the Granville Historical Society be Converted from a Vehicular/Pedestrian Way to a Pedestrian Only Pass-Through. The conversion of this vehicular/pedestrian way cut-off the rear parking area that is owned by the Village. This ordinance would allow for vehicular access to the parking lot located at 118 South Main Street.
Ordinance No. 05-2012, An Ordinance Authorizing the Village Manager to Grant a General Permit to Park National Bank to License the Use of the Village Right-of-Way on the South Side of East Broadway and Adjacent to 119 East Broadway
This ordinance grants Park National Bank a permit to further encroach on the East Broadway right-a-way. Approximately three feet of the building and all of the existing walkway and landscaping on the north side of the building already encroaches on the right-a-way. This ordinance allows for the planned handicap updates and legitimizes the pre-existing encroachment for the Bank.
Resolution No. 2012-25, A Resolution to Establish a Process to Request and Authorize Expenditures from the Capital Improvement Reserve Fund
This resolution approves a Capital Improvement Fund Distribution process. Village Council determined that $1,000,000 of the Capital Improvement Fund balance should be held in reserve for the 2012 fiscal year. Council and staff will work during 2012 to bring the General Fund into balance and allow Council, during the 2013 budget process, to review the remainder of the Capital Improvement Fund for other capital project expenditures.
Regarding the remaining Capital Improvement Fund balance (approximately $900,000), Council recommended that $359,000 be used to pay off the Bryn Du note and $312,754.25 be used toward the 2012 street improvement project.
A balance of approximately $252,027.81 will be left. Council has indicated a willingness to use these funds toward capital projects in the Village that improve the resident’s health, safety and welfare, promote economic development, support cultural activities, and/or improve the quality of life for Granville’s residents.
Resolution No. 2012-26, A Resolution to Appoint a Member to the Planning Commission Representing the Board of the Granville Exempted Village School District
The Granville School District Board of Education, during their March 19, 2012 meeting, appointed Douglas Eklof as the School District’s ex-officio member to the Planning Commission. This resolution will approve that appointment. Mr. Eklof will be a non-voting member representing the School District
