The Deputy Clerk’s Report is available at the Village office.
Lt. Keith Boeing reported there were 36 calls for service for the month of June. Five are under investigation. There were two thefts and one assault.
Ron Nunnery asked council about North Bend’s residential rental property program. His view is that when we send out the application and checklist to the rental property owner, we ask them to complete a self-inspection and upon receiving this form, we issue a permit. There is no recourse ….North Bend does not publish information on rental property and whether they are compliant. His view is to abandon the program. Joe Bonner and Scott Sollmann stated we may be able to improve the program and had a few suggestions.
Chief Ober reported there were seven EMS details and four fire runs for the month of June. There was a natural gas leak, a tree down and an appliance fire in Stonehaven. All hydrants have been tested. Chief Ober is working on the Frequently Asked Questions handout for the levies North Bend and Miami Township are proposing on the November 5th, 2019 ballot. We will post this information on our website, have copies available in the office and display them at the post office and on our bulletin board.

The school’s overall grade is now a “C” up from a “D” rating; their graduation rate is an “A”; and TRS most vulnerable, which includes their handicapped students, has a grade of “B”, up from a “D” rating.
