MAINTENANCE SUPERVISOR’S REPORT, Cont’d.
Mayor Sammons talked about mudslides on U.S. 50. He asked Rick to get estimates for a rebar, reinforced wall, approximately 150-200 feet in length. He also noticed that ODOT had counters out on Three Rivers Parkway. He asked Rick to check with ODOT to ask if they may be repaving Three Rivers Parkway.
Ron Hartoin stated any road work or hillside work that North Bend and ODOT will do in the future, should be done in coordination with each other.
Mayor Sammons stated that North Bend street sweeping will be completed within the next few weeks.
DEPUTY CLERK’S REPORT
Marilyn will have Rumpke deliver a “yard waste only” dumpster on Friday, April 8th and they will remove it on Monday, May 16th for North Bend’s Spring Clean Up. The charge is $355.00 along with a $25.00 delivery fee.
This year we will also get a dumpster just for tires, at no cost, through Keep Cincinnati Beautiful. We will schedule that dumpster for one week at the end of our Spring Clean Up dates.
North Bend organized a Community Health Initiative on February 20th. The Hamilton County Public Health “We Thrive” team reported their findings to approximately 20 residents.
Our office copier is inoperable and because of its age cannot be repaired. I’ve attached several quotes for a new copier. Ron Hartoin made a motion to allow a budget of $2,500 for a new copier. Fran Romweber seconded the motion. Motion carried 100%.
Sgt. Raker reported there were 33 calls for the month of January. One case was assigned to detectives during this period and one case was closed. The one criminal report was a case of identity theft.
Mayor Sammons mentioned that we have had problems with our security alarm. The back door to the maintenance department moves in high winds and alarms the police. A dead bolt lock would better secure the door against false alarms.
Ms. Gillespie addressed council regarding problems at the apartment building located at 154 Miami Avenue. She has found drug needles on the property, there are broken windows with wood replacements and they cut a hole in one area of the building, which could promote “carryout” drugs. She has complained to the manager of the building, Duane Means and to police.
Fran Romweber stated she is not alone. There have been numerous complaints about the 154 Miami Avenue building. Garbage is located in the parking lot, the fence is deteriorating and cars are abandoned there.
Mayor Sammons is using our legal resources to address this major problem. Sgt. Raker has been advised of this issue. There is a process we need to follow to rectify this problem. Next month we will have more information.
Minutes, February 29, 2016
Chief Ober reported there were no fire runs and 5 EMS details for the month of January.
There will be a “drug take back” at the Miami Township Fire House on Shady Lane on April 30th from 10:00am – 2:00pm. No liquids allowed, only pills.
THREE RIVERS SCHOOL DISTRICT
Finance - Mr. Moorman
Dave had a presentation on the streets within North Bend including an assessment of their condition and repaving options. Mayor Sammons stated we need to seriously think about being aggressive in restoring our roads because loans that we have received in the past were at a 0% interest rate. New loan percentage rates will be increasing in the near future. We need to get JMA involved in this endeavor. They need to identify what streets in the village qualify for SCIP grants, and they need to prioritize the roads along with what type of repaving technique needed for each. Ron Hartoin reiterated we need to prioritize the roads that need repaving now. Dave Moorman will contact JMA about SCIP grants and paving options.
Light, Water and Sewer - Ms. Smith
Maintenance - Mr. Hartoin
Police & Fire – Mr. Boll
Planning & Zoning - Mrs. Romweber
Law & Ordinance - Mr. Nunnery

DEPUTY CLERK REPORT
FEBRUARY 29, 2016
Spring Clean-Up - Rumpke will deliver a yard waste dumpster on Friday, April 8, 2016 and remove it on Monday, May 16, 2016. The charge is $355.00 with a maximum weight of 10 tons (last year we only had 2.74 tons). Their delivery fee is $50.00 but we agreed on $25.00 after speaking with Ms. Jackie Osborn. Rumpke will also waive the fuel surcharge because we agreed to pay in advance to delivery. Total cost is $380.00
This year, we will be able to get a dumpster specifically for tires through “Keep Cincinnati Beautiful”. This service is free and it is designed for illegally dumped scrap tires found in our community. It is not for businesses.
