The Granville Village Council adopted the following legislation at the December 4, 2013 regular meeting:
Ordinance No. 22-2013, 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, 2014
This ordinance establishes the appropriations for Village operations and capital improvement projects for 2014.
Ordinance No. 23-2013, An Ordinance to Authorize the Village Manager to Execute a Contract Providing for the Sale of Water to the Village of Alexandria
Since 1981, Granville has provided Alexandria potable water. This ordinance provides for the continued sale of water to Alexandria at a rate equal to 1.3 times the rate charged to Granville residents. The contract also clarifies when communication between the two Villages is required. Alexandria uses approximately 35,000 gallons of water per day, equal to about 6% of the Village’s water production. The contract would be renewed for a five-year period.
Ordinance No. 24-2013, An Ordinance Granting Approval of an Easement to St. Luke’s Episcopal Church to Allow Construction of Two Additions to the Building Located at 107 East Broadway That Will Encroach onto Village Owned Property Located at 118 South Main Street
This ordinance authorizes the Village Manger to enter into an agreement with St. Luke's Episcopal Church to allow for an encroachment easement for a proposed building addition to St. Luke's Episcopal Church.
Resolution No. 2013-60, A Resolution Authorizing the Negotiation of a Preservation and Conservation Easement Over Part of the Granville Golf Course
The Granville Golf Course represents a valuable historic attribute and part of the Village’s identity. Granville Township is pursuing an agreement to acquire the development rights to a majority of the Granville Golf Course property. This effort is to preserve the rural character of the Village by maintaining golf course operations. It is anticipated that the primary source of funds for the Township's acquisition will be Open Space monies. These funds cannot be used for the acquisition of non-agricultural improvements. Hence, similar to the purchase of the Bryn Du Mansion property, it is considered desirable for the Village to work with the Township to maintain this recreational attribute by obtaining control of the development rights of approximately 15 acres, which include the clubhouse and surrounding areas that Open Space Funds may not be used to purchase. This resolution authorizes Village staff to negotiate the purchase of a conservation easement for that acreage.
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.
