Chief Ober stated there were 13 EMS runs and 3 fire runs. The 2014 inspections are complete.
The hydrant on US 50 at the Addyston boundary line is currently turned off due to leaking water, however, it can be used if needed. The location of this hydrant is not vital for the safety of residents. Chief Ober said Addyston is responsible for repairing that hydrant.

There was a discussion regarding the status, fines and assessments of three remaining properties.
The owner of 3 Miami Avenue paid the fine and provided the required Residential Rental Application and Checklist. Dave Moorman recommends dropping the tax assessment on this property.
The owner of 464 Three Rivers Parkway property transferred ownership to their tenants.           Dave Moorman recommends waiting for the 120 day deadline that Hamilton County Health Department has placed on that property for the septic system to be repaired or replaced. If the new owner pays the $500.00 fine and repairs the septic system, Dave recommends dropping the tax assessment on this property.   Fran Romweber commented on the appearance of their property.   Dave Moorman stated they will not respond to any correspondence from the Village.   There was a discussion about what can be done. Jim Reichert has made several recommendations in the past and does not currently recommend a forced foreclosure based on the tax lien.
The owner of 35 Ridge submitted a Residential Rental Application and Checklist after renting long term without a permit. Dave Moorman recommends if the owners do not pay the             $500 fine, North Bend should place the additional tax lien on the property.

TREASURER’S REPORT
   December 22nd, 2014
 
To Council Members for Your Information and Review
 
This was a quiet period in the North Bend financial world since last month’s meeting. Things will change soon as we approach year end and get ready for 2015.
 
We wrote one purchase order this month for $10,466.09 to R.A. Miller construction for the final payment for the Shady Lane project. The $130,826 project consisted of an $82,000 grant from the County Municipal Road fund and $55,826 from village funds. The Mayor is pursuing grants to offset the Village portion,
 
I would like to take this moment to thank Jim Reichart for his service to North Bend and to me personally for his expertise and guidance during the time we have worked together.
Good luck to Jim in his retirement. He will be missed.
