REPUBLIC - Several Republic residents said they are not happy with the trash service in the village.
Ryan Price questioned the length of the contract with FSI. Price said extra bags and any items dropped during pickup are left behind, then, someone reports you have trash sitting out.
David Hamilton complained that the price for additional items is always increased. Mayor Bruce Lambert said he thought the contract continues for another two years.
Council members asked Solicitor Jim Gucker to examine the contract and offer the village his opinion if complaints continue.
Village Administrator Crystal Fields said trees have been tagged for trimming. She said a recent water outage was due to maintenance being done on the water tower. Fields also has developed a maintenance schedule for the aerators.
Police Chief Don Holmer reported the county would be reprogramming the village radios Sept. 24 and that a corporation limit sign needs to be moved. Spare tire repairs for the cruiser are to cost $150.
Fiscal officer Monique Delaney presented the cash summary by fund report.
The meeting went into executive session for discussion of litigation.
