The Granville Village Council adopted the following legislation at the December 3, 2014 regular meeting:
Ordinance No. 15-2014, An Ordinance to Amend Section 1159.02 of the Codified Ordinances of the Village of Granville Pertaining to Conditional Use and Two-Family Housing
This Ordinance amends Village Code Section 1159.02 to change the category of “non-profit educational, civic, religious, and social uses which serve and are compatible with other permitted uses in the district from a permitted use to a conditional use. It would also permit two-family residential as a conditional use category in the Village Business District (VBD). Two-family units would not be permitted in an area designated as the core business district.
Ordinance No. 16-2014, An Ordinance to Make Appropriations for Current Expenses and Other Expenditures of the Village of Granville, State of Ohio, During the Fiscal Year Ending December 31, 2015
This ordinance establishes the appropriations for the Village operations and capital improvement projects for 2015.
Ordinance No. 17-2014, An Ordinance to Amend Section 513.03 (c) of the Codified Ordinances of Granville, Ohio Pertaining to Drug Abuse, Possession or Use
This Ordinance amends Section 513.03 (c) of the Village Code pertaining to the possession of a controlled substance, specifically marijuana. The penalty currently for the possession of marijuana is a third degree misdemeanor. The amendment would make the Code consistent with other portions of the Code and the Ohio Revised Code with a sliding penalty based on the amount of marijuana possessed.
Resolution No. 2014-40, A Resolution to Establish the Annual Compensation Adjustment for Non-Bargaining Employees for the Fiscal Year 2015
This resolution adjusts compensation for 2015 for nineteen Village non-bargaining employees in pay grades A-K, not covered by collective bargaining (union) agreements (non-police and non-public works individuals including department heads, clerical, and Village office staff). The resolution treats the non-bargaining employees like Village union employees by authorizing a 1.5% cost of living increase. It also provides merit increases and/or bonus (union contracts have automatic step increases, not available for non-bargaining employees) to those employees who performed well as documented by an evaluation process, requested by the Village Council. The resolution also extends the 1.5% increase to part-time employees also.
Resolution No. 2014-41, A Resolution Authorizing the Village Manager to Enter into a Contract with the Licking County Board of Commissioners for Reimbursement of Legal Counsel for Indigent Defendants for the Village of Granville, Licking County, Ohio
This resolution continues a current contract with the Licking County Board of Commissioners that authorizes the State Public Defenders office to reimburse the Village for legal fees associated with the representation of indigent defendants.
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.
