Minutes, June 30, 2014


Mr. Brian Hudgins, Maintenance Supervisor of Aston Oaks Golf Course is requesting a North Bend Title 9 ordinance amendment to allow deer culling (approximately 8 - 14) only on the Aston Oaks Golf Course property through December 31, 2014.   Dave Moorman asked about what type of weapon would be used and would this pertain to Aston Oaks Golf Course property only.  Bow hunting would be the type of weapon used and it only pertains to Aston Oaks Golf Course property.  Mr. Hudgins has already secured all the necessary Ohio Division of Wildlife permissions and permits.

Dave Moorman asked about the scenario of a deer being hit but falling outside of North Bend boundaries.  Brian stated he would need the property owner’s permission to retrieve the deer.

Fran Romweber asked about the boundaries of Aston Oaks Golf Course property and Brian said they would use the Auditor’s maps.  Fran also mentioned that deer are major carriers of lime disease.

Dave Moorman said tonight’s discussion was the informative part of this topic.  The public will have until our July 28 Council meeting to comment.

Mayor Sammons asked if a Resolution versus an Ordinance would suffice.  Jim Reichert is working to properly word the Ordinance amendment.   There may be a problem with issuing an exception to one specific property owner.  Dave Moorman says other communities set a minimum property size, (such as acreage).  Jim Reichert proposed further Law and Ordinance Committee consideration.


Assistant Chief Wells reported there were three (3) fire runs and eighteen (18) EMS runs for the month of May.   There was a discussion of details around the EMS runs.  No particular pattern exists.


No one from Three Rivers School attended, however, Mayor Sammons read from the school’s website regarding two concerts at the Miami Township Center.  (Please see website)

Mayor Sammons mentioned the flag poles will be installed at the Point on July 1, 2014.  He thanked Consolidated Grain for their contribution.

Ron Hartoin added his thanks to Skyline, Lowe’s and Home Depot for their donations to the park.  There is also a sign at the park listing all the donors.  Marilyn reviewed all of the donations of time and materials for the park and the Opening Day celebration.  Check the Community Press for an article on our Opening Day festivities.  Marilyn is also keeping a log of the number of residents using our new playground so she can report its’ progress to Council over the next few months.


Ron Nunnery asked about the progress of the fitness building being built in Tisch’s center.           Mayor Sammons said Mr. Tisch had asked to have requirements altered.  Mayor said he would need to go through the proper channels.


Jim Reichert asked about the second parcel located at 430 Three Rivers Parkway.  Mayor Sammons stated it is underway.  Jim also mentioned that the Wayne Manufacturing bankruptcy settlement is still in progress.

The bid for the Shady Lane Improvements Project was accepted at the June 21 meeting.        Mayor Sammons reviewed the project as that meeting was not televised.  The bid was for $133,410 and Council voted to approve the full project.  Of that amount, $75,000 is a grant and $58,410 is from Village funds.  Mayor Sammons is working to recapture the North Bend portion with grants.


The Cooperative Agreement for participation in the Hamilton County Community Development Program from March 1, 2014 through February 28, 2017 was adopted at the June 21 meeting.  This allows the Village to apply for Block grants.
