Bloomville council hears good, bad

BLOOMVILLE Bloomville Village Council members heard both the good news and bad news at their meeting Wednesday evening.

The good news is RenoSys has finally arrived to begin rehabilitation on the village pool. The bad news is the work, to be done in two phases, requires a period of no rain for more than two weeks, which may push the pool opening back another three weeks.

Village clerk-treasurer Janis Weasner reported she has been in contact with Tiffin city administrator Deb Reamer and the engineering department to learn more regarding instituting a sidewalk replacement program for certain areas of the village. Due to the specifications information and various steps the village will likely begin early next year.

Other items of note:

Police department will perform LEADS training;

Estimates being received on tree removal;

Fifteen-minute parking sign to be reinstalled by post office;

Village office to be closed July 10-15.

Council approved a request from T.J.s Drive-Thru to remove 6-8 feet of curb in front of their business at their own cost.

Council approved resolutions:

2013-06, request county auditor prepare certificate of estimated tax revenue;

2013-09, employing Gwen Dentinger as part-time clerk;

2013-10, approving estimated budget for FY 2014 for submittal to county auditor by July 15;

Those receiving first readings include:

2013-07, authorization to purchase rock salt from ODOT;
