VILLAGE OF GRANVILLE
The Granville Village Council adopted the following legislation at the September 1, 2010 regular meeting:
a. Ordinance No. 15-2010, An Ordinance to Amend Ordinance No. 20-09 to Provide for Adjustments to the Annual Budget for the Fiscal Year 2010 and to Revise Sums for Operating Expenses for Legal Expenses and Mayor’s Court
This ordinance increases the appropriations for legal services in the Mayor’s Court account and in the Law account. Staff was too conservative in preparing the budget with regard to legal services for 2010. In 2009, $90,000 was budgeted after spending between $82,000 to $85,000 in 2007 and 2008. However, this year only $65,000 was budgeted and that appropriation is almost exhausted. Legal services are running higher than anticipated this year due to costs associated with the police negotiations that carried over into 2010 and participation in a fact finding session during those negotiations. There is also an increase of $18,000 for contractual services in the Mayor’s Court account.
b. Resolution No. 2010-37, A Resolution to Authorize the Village Manager to Advertise for Bids for the Purchase of Water Treatment Chemicals
This resolution authorizes the Village Manager to advertise for bids for the purchase of water treatment chemicals. Advertising for bids at this time provides the necessary information to include the cost of these chemicals as part of the 2011 operating budget.
c. Resolution No. 2010-38, A Resolution to Authorize the Village Manager to Advertise for Bids for the Construction of Water and Sewer Lines to Serve the Recently Annexed Mill District Properties
The resolution authorizes the Village Manager to advertise for bids for the extension of water and sewer lines to the newly annexed Mill District properties. The extension of those lines is required by the annexation agreement. This resolution only seeks bids, the actual awarding of a contract would need to be approved by Council.
All legislation is available for review at the Village Offices during regular business hours, which are normally 8:00am - 4:30pm, Monday through Friday. The Village Offices are located at 141 East Broadway.
