DEPUTY CLERK’S REPORT February 25, 2018 Marilyn Kramer
The President William Henry Harrison Birthday Tribute event went very well. Congressman Chabot, Sheriff Neal, Judge Ruehlman and a representative from Brad Wenstrup’s office attended the event. Brigadier General Wright spoke to the attendees at Three Rivers School after a wonderful luncheon. A special thank you to Craig Hockenberry, Superintendent of Three Rivers School District. I submitted an article with pictures to the Enquirer.
I filed the Residential Recycling Incentive (RRI) report with Hamilton County on February 11th. According to my calculations, we should receive $1,726.49 from Hamilton County for participating in this program.
I hand-delivered North Bend’s check to Miami Township for Fire/EMS services for 2019 today. February 28, 2019 was the deadline.
We received an email from the Ohio Emergency Management Agency. There are Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) funds available statewide for eligible applicants to apply for projects that reduce risk to people and property from natural hazards and their effects. The deadline is March 22, 2019. Should we consider applying for funding to solve any storm water runoff problems? I contacted Steve Ferryman, the Mitigation Branch Chief, to ask about matching funds, estimates and other details. He stated the grant is 75% federally funded, 12.5% state funded and 12.5% would need to come from local government. Should we get estimates on the cost to submit any pre-applications by the March 22, 2019 deadline?
The State Hazard Mitigation Team will meet and rank the project pre-applications. The highest ranked projects will be selected for full project application development. The emailed instructions include a long list of questions.
I met with Dominique Walker, We Thrive representative, to give her an update on our Action Plan for our Wellness Committee.
I’m looking for grants from the State of Ohio which may help pay for costs incurred for storing the Village’s information for our Records Retention Program.
The next INEOS/PAG meeting is Thursday, February 28, 2019 at 5:30pm at the Addyston Municipal Building. The INEOS meeting schedule for the year is attached.
Mike Kneflin, President of the Edinburgh Condo Association, signed the Contract for Village Services in 2019, between North Bend and Edinburgh regarding the hanging plant baskets.
We will have a yard waste and tire dumpster event again this year in April or May. Dates will be announced soon.
One of the lobby chairs in the office cracked and is unable to be repaired. I’d like to get approval for funds to replace two new chairs.
There’s nothing new in the Tickler File.
