Mayor Sammons asked about the new firehouse being built adjacent to the present location on East Miami.

Finance - Mr. Moorman

Dave Moorman reminded everyone that there are issues on the March 17th ballot. There is an issue asking for our sales tax to be increased by 0.8% from 7% to 7.8% which would pay for bus service and the repair of roads and bridges.

Dave Moorman also talked about the Harrison Avenue Improvements project. He asked why the estimate from JMA was so low compared to the actual bid from contractors to complete the project. Ron Hartoin suggested asking JMA what portion of the bid is controversial. Mayor Sammons stated he thought the second section of Harrison Avenue could be taken off the bid, which would reduce the amount by $20,000. JMA’s estimate was $189,000; actual bid was $227,000. Dave proposes we do not move forward until we figure out from where the additional $40,000 is coming. Mayor Sammons said there’s a construction meeting this Friday, February 28th.

- In discussion with the new manager at Consolidated about purchasing trees to match the ones in front of shopping center. We would plant them along US 50 in the grass area running west to east. I will research and get him the cost of the trees. I’m 95% sure this will happen.

DEPUTY CLERK’S REPORT February 24, 2020 Marilyn Kramer

- We were awarded the $7,500 grant from Hamilton County Recycling and Solid Waste to purchase a blower and vacuum to start our leaf recycling program this fall. The monies we receive from our recycling efforts will be used towards advertising for this new program along with the purchase of gas to operate this equipment.

- North Bend has been awarded the $1,000 grant from PEP and should receive the check by the end of March. We submitted the application for safety lights for our maintenance trucks.

- The President William Henry Harrison Birthday Tribute was very well attended.

A copy is attached.

- The Primary Election date is Tuesday, March 17th. Polls open 6:30am – 7:30pm.

- Last week, a large truck took out a STOP sign and damaged a Duke Energy pole when turning right from Miami Avenue on to US 50. I received the police report and their insurance information. Rick will give it to ODOT for reimbursement.

- I copied a letter Fran sent to Dollar General regarding the litter issue around their store on St. Anne’s. She is also meeting with Jennifer Vatter with JMA regarding the CRA report tomorrow.

- Ron Nunnery attended our January meeting and advised us about trash setting out along the side of the road for several days at 4 Miami. The trash belonged to the CMHA property at 3 Taylor and after contacting the manager, she did discover that they inadvertently missed payments to Rumpke. She took care of that issue and the trash was picked up.

- Mr. Frey attended our January meeting and had concerns regarding new cracks on St. Andrews and Eaglescliff roads. I advised him Rick will be crack sealing that area in the spring and should take care of those issues.

There is nothing in our tickler file for the next three months.
