Chief Ober reported there were four fire details and six EMS runs for the month of December. There has been a 7% increase in total runs from 2017. For North Bend, there were 20 fire details and 112 EMS runs for 2018. Chief Ober also stated that all fire hydrants have been pumped dry as part of their fall check.

Ron Hartoin asked if the staffing has increased. Chief Ober stated they have been able to maintain their staff, however, it’s a constant battle attaining new hires. They did review and adjust their part-time pay scale; they also are training in-house. Chief Ober stated that TIFF money pays for all of their fire trucks and equipment, but that money cannot be used for salaries.

Mayor Sammons asked about Miami Township placing a Fire/EMS levy on the May ballot. Chief Ober stated that Miami Township had a 1Mil levy that expired and a 3.29Mil that is a continual levy. They will be asking for an increase on their levy for a 5-year duration.

THREE RIVERS SCHOOL

Superintendent Hockenberry reported they hosted the State Superintendent Public Instruction meeting. TRS students are in the middle of preparing for state testing. On February 5th, they invited real estate agents to tour Three Rivers School and update them about the district and its future. Approximately sixty-eight real estate agents attended.

Mayor Sammons asked about the Community Building Project. Mr. Hockenberry stated this is a four-year project and he would like to host in-home meetings for feedback. He would also like to hear from community leaders for their feedback. He mentioned that Skyline will have a new location near TRS.

COMMITTEES:

Finance - Mr. Moorman

Dave spoke about the Duke Energy LED conversion status. Rick worked with Duke to reconcile the number of lamps needed in Aston Oaks. There are a total of 38 acorn style lamps needed in Aston Oaks and we were only being billed for 31 in the past. Because of this increase in number, the amount that council approved of $100,000 has increased to $105,000. Dave Moorman made a motion to add $5,000 to pay Duke Energy for the additional seven lamps needed. Bill Deters seconded the motion. Motion carried 100%. Dave stated it would take 6-8 weeks from time of ordering to be completed. (Approximately April, 2019). The Cobra style lamps will be installed in the historic part of the village as soon as they become available.

Dave talked about the Fire/EMS agreement with Miami Township now being renewed every year compared to the previous 5-year agreement. Chief Ober stated he would be our contact representing Miami Township. He will speak with M.T. trustees for information. North Bend may want to place a levy on the May ballot and we would need the costs from Miami Township.
