The Granville Village Council adopted the following legislation at the January 6, 2016 regular meeting:
Resolution No. 2016-01, A Resolution Authorizing the Village Manager to Advertise for Bids for Various Village Projects and Items Throughout 2016
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 2016 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 2016 include street improvement project, the purchase of water chemicals, lime sludge removal, HVAC system replacement and ground maintenance.
Resolution No. 2016-02, A Resolution to Designate the Clerk of Council to Attend the Required Trainings Related to Public Records Laws and Sunshine Laws on Behalf of the Village Council
This resolution designates the Clerk of Council, on behalf of the Village Council, to attend the required trainings related to the public records laws and Sunshine Laws. Section 149.43 of the Ohio Revised Code requires that all elected officials or their designees attend trainings related to public records laws and Sunshine laws. That training shall be for each elected official or their designee for each new term in office. We have been advised by the State Auditor’s office that the Clerk of Council may attend those trainings on behalf of the Mayor and Council. However, the Council must officially select the Clerk of Council as their designee to attend those trainings on its behalf.
Resolution No. 2016-03, A Resolution to Appoint a Member to the Union Cemetery Board of Trustees
This resolution appoints Matt McGowan to fill an unexpired term as the Village Council representative to the Union Cemetery Board. Matt McGowan is replacing Constance Barsky as she retired from Village Council December 1, 2015. Matt McGowan’s term will expire on May 31, 2016.
