MAYOR’S NEW BUSINESS/ REPORT
Mayor Sammons advised everyone that JMA and the Village of Addyston have an agreement to tie in the Addyston water pipes to the Cleves water pipes. There will be construction on Three Rivers Parkway near the Addyston and North Bend boundary line.
OPEN TO THE FLOOR
Ms. Anne Poppe, resident of North Bend on Stonehaven, talked about the stop sign as you leave Aston Oaks Golf Club. When people exit Aston Oaks Golf Club they do not realize that oncoming traffic is not required to stop or yield before they turn left into Stonehaven. This is a safety issue and Ms. Poppe would like to see an additional sign stating that “oncoming traffic does not stop”. The stop sign is also blocked somewhat by tree limbs. North Bend maintenance will trim those tree limbs blocking the sign.
Nathan Goldschmidt, Eddie Schmidt and Nathan Schulte of Boy Scout Troop 420 introduced themselves to council and remained at the council meeting taking notes.

I’d like to thank Ron Hartoin for purchasing the remaining 10 pavers needed for North Bend
to secure the discounted price from Acsent.
I’d also like to thank Shirley Smith for donating a new 6.5’ Christmas tree to North Bend, which
Rick will use in our Christmas display at the Addyston/North Bend boundary line.
I took a picture of that display and Rick’s gift box for our Christmas card this year.
Breakfast with Santa was a huge success; we had donuts, OJ and hot chocolate for everyone. We had plenty of toys for all of the children and raffled off four bicycles. It was well attended.
We received cookies from Constellation, our gas aggregator and candy from Kleem, which
is one of Rick’s vendors.
We have received the required three bids for demolition of 3 Miami and will submit them
this Wednesday to Spot Demolition along with our application. Demolition cannot begin until mid-February because of the required 90-day vacancy policy.
