Carrollton Council may have the opportunity to rename a street as a result of a recommendation at the Monday night meeting.
After receiving information of confusion over 10th St., in the village, the Public Works Committee recommended sending a request to the village planning commission to change the name of 10th St. NW to Daringer Ave.
The proposed change would not affect mailing addresses for any residents as there aren’t any houses located along that section of the street.
The section of 10th St. NW in question runs from Canton Rd. to Daringer Ave. There are two sections of 10th St., which do not connect. Changing the street name would alleviate confusion. The street in question is located next to the proposed site of a Microtel.
In an unrelated matter, Councilman Dan Locke told council he is concerned about gas and oil company water trucks running red lights throughout the village. He is a driver for Carroll County Transit and often sees the first truck in a group go through a green light and the others follow regardless of whether the light is still green or has changed colors.
Police Chief Ron Yeager told council his department is watching intersections when not on other calls.
In other business, council:
-HEARD supervisor’s monthly reports.
-TABLED the possibility of selling the lot where the village water tower was located.
-ANNOUNCED Asplundh Tree Service is trimming and removing trees throughout the village. Firewood left in the right-of-ways is free on a first come, first serve basis.
-LEARNED two campers are still located in a village trailer park. Village Solicitor Clark Battista will follow up on the issue since there has been no response to letters mailed.
-HEARD the village has been invited to participate in another tire recycling program. Dates will be announced.
-PAID bills totaling $82,115.87 for vendors and $43,236.06 for payroll.
-SCHEDULED the next council meeting for April 8 at 7 p.m. in council chambers.
