Mayor Sammons asked Ron about the condition of the roads in the Eagles Cliff Development. Keith Niehaus is asking for a refund of the $4,100 Maintenance Bond. There’s road damage in that development and Mayor Sammons would like to know if we can use those funds to repair the road damage? Ron Hartoin stated he thought because Eagles Cliff Development has not yet been dedicated, that Mr. Niehaus would be responsible for the road repair.

DEPUTY CLERK’S REPORT April 22, 2019 Marilyn Kramer

- We received the $1,000 grant money from PEP for 2019. The funds were for the playground cameras and security system we purchased in January, 2019. It looks as though this will be an annual funding opportunity going towards prevention of loss. Last year the grant amount was $500.00 and we received that for the removal of the large Maple tree near Council Hall.

- We are receiving $817.10 from Hamilton County Recycling and Solid Waste District for our recycling efforts. For years, we were included in Miami Township and just last year we separated from them. In 2017, Hamilton County was adjusting the process from two payments per year to one annual payment. Their allotment was used for the last half of 2017. Now, their allotment is used for a full year which changes their Diversion Rate Table and results in less money per ton. Please see the attached tables.

- The Mitigation Grant from the State of Ohio Emergency Management Agency was denied ….they need a Hydrology Study done for cost benefit purposes. JMA estimated the cost at $304,400 for storm water work to be done at St. Anne’s and US 50. JMA quoted the Hydrology Study costing $15,000. The Mitigation Specialist stated there will be another declaration of funds available soon and we can apply for the Advanced Assistance funds to perform the Hydrology Study and then apply for funds for the project itself. Please see copy of the grant application.

- The Hamilton County Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan was updated in 2018. (The Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 requires local governments to have a hazard mitigation plan to be eligible for federal disaster relief funds should the jurisdiction be affected by a federally-declared disaster). Now they are asking us to review and update our mitigation actions from the 2018 plan we submitted. I stated we are seeking grant funds for the storm water runoff issue at St. Annes and US 50. I also stated that our maintenance department is trimming and cutting down dead trees in the Village that are a threat to the safety of people and property.

- The Wellness Committee meeting was March 30. The minutes are attached for your review.

Our next meeting is Friday, June 21, at 9:30am.

- The INEOS meeting is this Thursday, April 25 at the Saylor Park Community Center at 5:30pm.

All are welcome to attend.

- Miami Township will have their Drug Take Back this Saturday, April 27th from 10:00am – 2:00pm. You can dispose of your prescription medication by driving through the fire bays at Miami Township’s Fire Department on Shady Lane.

- North Bend’s Spring Clean Up, yard waste dates are May 6 – 20 and our Tire Recycling Event is May 20 – 28, 2019. The dumpsters will be located behind the administration building on Post Street.

- On Saturday, May 18 at 9:00am, in the maintenance garage, we will begin planting flowers in our planter boxes. All are welcome to join the fun.

- I received a phone call from Ms. Caroline Murphy Horn ….. she wanted to donate photographs of the company her grandfather, Lewis Albert Davison, owned…Davison Fuel & Dock, previously called Raymond City Coal on US 50 in North Bend. I’ll put them on display in the bookcases.

- Jason Cassidy has advised us he is unable to complete the project at 3 Miami Avenue for his Eagle Badge within the time allotted. He has several other badges to complete before the end of May and timing was an issue. Rick and our maintenance crew will complete the project.
