School board candidates pay visit

BLOOMVILLE – Three candidates for seats on the Buckeye Central School Board visited the village council meeting Wednesday night to introduce themselves. Beth Dietsch, Chris Martin and Steve Aichholz told members they want to improve communication with the district’s outlying communities.

Mayor Steve George is encouraging residents in the village and Bloom Township to participate in the activities Tuesdays at the Community Center. Cards and games are scheduled, along with refreshments and an occasional potluck.

George also thanked council members Nancy Zellers, Travis Cole and Tracy Meadows for their labor improving the surroundings of the newly erected community calendar wall. They discussed removing old organizational signs and adding new ones to the wall.

Street Superintendent Rick Dentinger reported that costs to repair the plumbing leak near the swimming pool were quoted to be $515 for the first two hours of work, with an additional $145 for every hour after that. American Leak Co. has several weeks of work scheduled at present, and Dentinger said he preferred to wait until spring to make the repairs.

He also is ordering road salt for winter to be delivered soon.

Clerk/treasurer Janis Weasner noted she had received her annual training in Perrysburg recently and that the village’s audit is in progress.

In other business, the council:

Approved paying bills.

Approved an ordinance amending a previous ordinance with additional appropriations for tree removal, leak repairs, electrical work and the audit, and declaring an emergency.

Encourage anyone interested in being on the committee for the Party in the Park to contact the village office.

The council is scheduled to meet at 7 p.m. Oct. 16.
