Council president to fill in for ailing clerk/treasurer

By Leigh Ann Rutledge
FPS Reporter

In the absence of Judi Noble, Carrollton village clerk-treasurer for health reasons, council was required to appoint one of its members to perform the clerk’s duties.

Mayor Frank Leghart told council according to the Ohio Revised Code (ORC) 733.27, a council member must be appointed since Noble will be absent for a period of time.  The ORC states the village clerk “shall attend all meetings of the legislative authority of the village, and keep a record of its proceedings and of all rules, bylaws, resolutions, and ordinances passed or adopted...”

Dan Locke was asked if he would fill in during Noble’s absence but told council time is of the essence since he is employed.  Mary Ann Miller, who is council president pro-tem, told council she would be willing to fill in since she is retired.  Miller would not be in charge of the money but would be required to sign resolutions, etc. as defined in the ORC.   Miller was appointed to fill in for Noble until her return.

In other business, council:
-HEARD monthly reports from department supervisors.

-APPOINTED Luke Grimes and Andy Gonda to the Fire Fighters’ Dependents Fund board.

-WAS reminded of the Rural Community Assistance Partnership (RCAP) training courses by Leghart.  If at least 50 percent of council does not complete the utility management courses, the village could lose almost $1 million of loan forgiveness for the Brenner Rd. waterline replacement and Water Treatment Plant projects.

-SCHEDULED a Public Works Committee meeting for Feb. 11 at 6 p.m.

-LEARNED the village will not receive any grant money for Lincoln Ave. Phase I but do quality for a zero percent loan.  Cost of the project is the $400,000 range.

-DISCUSSED mobile home issues.  Apparently 5th wheel camper trailers are being parked in the village and being used as residences.  Manufactured home regulations and mobile home park rules are being reviewed by the village solicitor. 

-PAID bills totaling $161,779.06 for vendors and $36,109.12 for payroll.
-EXCUSED Luke Grimes who was absent.

-SET the next meeting for Feb. 11 at 7 p.m. in council chambers.
