WINTER MEETING DATES:
Council President Hughes has asked City Administrator to submit the winter City Council Calendar for approval changes are in the month of November and December.
Motion to approve changes for the calendar for the months of November and December 2013.
Motion by Council Member Gallaher, Second by Edwards: Motion Passed
USED CLOTHING/SHOE RECYCLING CONTAINERS:
A number of for profit collection/recycling bins have been popping up along the Woodville Road corridor within the last few months. I suspect that some of them are there with the permission of the property owner while others have been placed without permission.
I believe that this accessory use of the property without the proper city permits is in violation of our Central Business District zoning Chapter 1275.
Staff is compiling a list of properties and owners names for these non-conforming properties.
WALES ROAD UPDATE:
The latest projected date for the opening of Wales Road from Woodville Road to East Broadway is early November 2013. Droulliard south from (new) Wales Road into Walbridge will also be open. Other portions of the road will be completed in the spring of 2014.
The paving subcontractor on the project will be paving Wales Road beginning early next week. Completion is scheduled for this portion by Thursday, September 19, 2013.
2014 BUDGET TIMETABLE:
In order to have three readings before the adoption of the 2014 City Budget, the timetable attached has been proposed and recommended to the Finance Committee.
The next meeting to discuss the feasibility of joining Rossford City, Walbridge, Millbury and Like Township in a regional dispatching venture will be held Friday morning September 13, 2013 at 9 am at the old highway patrol post on Lemoyne Road. The police chief, fire chief and I will be attending.
The main issues remain: location; cost; and the creation of a local council of governments to oversee operations.
GREENWAY ESTATES SUBDIVISION, DRAINAGE IMPROVEMENTS:
By way of reminder, sealed proposals for the construction of the detention pond for Greenway Estates will be received at the City of Northwood, 6000 Wales Rd, Northwood, Ohio, 43619 until 11:00 AM Local Time September 17, 2013 at which time they will be opened and read.
The project consists of constructing a 451,400 CF Detention Pond, pump station, and miscellaneous site work on a parcel of land located at the east end of Dalling Road.
Substantial completion of the project is slated for March 1, 2014 with final completion including landscaping to be done by May 1, 2014.
Since bids will be opened prior to our September 26th Council Meeting and a recommendation will be made to the Service Committee prior to our regular council meeting.
Therefore, I recommend setting a Service Committee meeting for September 26th, 2013 at 7:15 pm.
