DECEMBER 21, 2015
- Carpets cleaned in office and Council Hall
- Made final adjustments to Christmas decorations
- Fencing and gates installed around storage building
- Installed new post on Shady Lane, which was damaged by auto accident (Insurance was claimed)
- Street resurfacing was completed at Eagles Cliff Development
- Repairs to Aston Oaks Drive were completed
- Small patch of asphalt failure on Shady Lane. JMA has the contractor looking into the repairs.
- Started clearing brush along guardrail, back 5-feet starting at the Cleves line heading east to Addyston. Our goal is to finish by January 1, 2016.
- Made final connections of snow equipment and checked for proper operation.
Snow plow problem still exist. The light problem on the pickup truck still exists.
To rewire snow plow $ 1,400.00
New plow, installed $ 5,350.00
My plan before this was to replace existing plow for the 2017 (January) snow season. Our current plow is 8 years old and has been welded twice since I have been here. I feel the age and wear has reached a time to consider replacing. We have had the equipment to the Ford dealer twice this year with no resolution to the problem. The issue is likely to be in the snow plow wiring.
