BLOOMVILLE - Bloomville Village Council met Wednesday evening and discussed projects to be completed around the village.
Mayor Robert George asked council to consider the idea of hiring a part-time laborer to assist in cleaning and maintaining village property. He also asked about using county prisoners to assist.
"We're telling people to clean up their properties and look at our curbs and sidewalks," he said.
George will work on a list of projects for street superintendent Rick Dentinger to complete this summer.
George said he received a call last week on a resident with impaired water pressure. Water and Wastewater Superintendent Darin Brown was on vacation and no one was available to assist.
Council also discussed:
Village office closing Aug. 10 in absence of clerk/treasurer.
Village office closing Aug. 20 due to employees subpoenaed for former Bloomville police officer William Laugherty's trial.
Aspen Energy of Powell submitted quote for electrical needs.
Seeking council representative for FEMA county mitigation committee.
Pool concessions above estimate with admissions almost at estimate, passes slightly under estimate.
Council passed a resolution allowing a discounted family pool pass for August (pool closes Aug. 19) at the request of one family. The $100 pass was discounted by $15. Clerk/treasurer Janis Weasner said they have had good attendance this season, but "pool attendance in August really tails off."
A second reading regarding the hiring of Brent Mills as a part-time police officer also was made.
Council is to meet at 7 p.m.
