Within the past week, Lt. Daugherty stated that Green Township and the Triple Crown area has been hit hard with car break-ins. Mayor Sammons advised residents to lock their cars, keep your outside house lights on and advise the Sheriffís department when you leave on vacation so they can check on your house while away. Mayor Sammons also said residents should call police or him to report anything out of the ordinary. Talk to the police and let them know whatís going on in our community.




Chief Ober reported there were 9 EMS details and 3 fire runs. One incident involved downed wires and there was a water rescue incident on the Ohio River. This prompted a discussion between Council and Chief Ober about the water rescue. Chief Ober explained that Miami Township owns an inflatable boat and they have one that Sheriff OíNeil loaned them.

Chief Ober stated that the hydrant check has been completed. They are working with Cleves to have the non-working hydrants back in working order. He instructed all residents to please leave the black coverings on the hydrants. This lets firemen and others know that this fire hydrant is inoperative. There are four fire hydrants in North Bend that are inoperative. 1) Near St. Joeís Church; 2) Symmes Avenue; 3) Aston Oaks Drive; 4) Brower Road

Minutes, July 28, 2014

Law & Ordinance - Mr. Moorman

Regarding our Property Maintenance Code, complaints by residents have slightly increased. Dave Moorman believes this is a positive development indicative of resident interest in making

the Village more livable and is a by-product of Village beautification efforts.

At last monthís meeting, Mr. Brian Hudgins, Maintenance Supervisor of Aston Oaks Golf Course, requested North Bend consider amending our Section 900.06 of the North Bend Revised Code of Ordinances Relating to the Discharge of Weapons, because of damage done to Aston Oaks Golf Course property by deer. Bill Welch reminded everyone that this request by Brian Hudgins applies to the back nine holes of Aston Oaks Golf Course within the Village of North Bend. Aston Oaks Golf Course already has the approval from Miami Township for the holes outside of the Village of North Bend. Jim Reichert drafted an Amendment and shared it with the Law and Ordinance Committee. Dave Moorman read the Amendment to Council.

Dave Moorman made a motion to declare Ordinance No. 2014-01 an Emergency. Ron Hartoin seconded the motion. Motion carried 100%. Dave Moorman made motion to accept Ordinance No. 2014-01 Amending Section 900-06 of the North Bend Revised Code of Ordinances Relating to the Discharge of Weapons within the Village. Ron Nunnery seconded the motion. Motion carried 100%.

Beautification Ė Fran Romweber

Fran stated this Saturday, August 2, we have scheduled our Wellness Committee meeting at 9:30am and immediately following at 10:00am, we will hold our Beautification Committee meeting. She stated the Beautification Committee account is $9.44 in the red. We will prepare for the remainder of the year. Bill Welch and Ron Hartoin stepped up and donated $5.00 each to bring our Beautification account to the positive.

Ms. Tammy Simendinger is running for the Ohio 29th State Representative position and she spoke to Council.


Mayor Sammons announced that our Law Director, Jim Reichert is retiring as of December 31, 2014. He thanked him for the past nine years and recognized his efforts. He has always been very responsive in resolving our issues.

North Bend will now be actively looking for his replacement and some of the requirements of our new Law Director would be that they reside on the west side of town, have over five years of experience and be familiar with government issues.
