The Boat Club may still be interested in participating. Mayor Sammons talked about a group that’s planning a trail from Smale Park to Fernbank Park to Shawnee Lookout Park, which includes a stop near President Harrison’s Tomb. We will be involved with this group since we have mutual interests. We are looking to revise the portion of US 50 alongside this project property.

COUNCIL’S OLD BUSINESS
LAW DIRECTOR’S OLD BUSINESS
Scott Sollmann reviewed the status of the Addison bankruptcy. The judge decided the mortgage holder would be paid first and as a result, no monies were available to pay North Bend assessments. Mayor Sammons stated our previous law director, Jim Reichert, filed an assessment against Mr. Addison’s property in 2010 regarding hillside slippage which North Bend paid. Scott Sollmann will follow-up on this.
MAYOR’S OLD BUSINESS
Mayor Sammons stated we were awarded a $30,000 grant to improve the Presidential Community Park from Hamilton County Planning Commission for 2016. We can begin those improvements April 1, 2016. Mayor Sammons asked Fran if the Beautification Committee could designate what needs the park may have. Dave Moorman recommended considering the $600.00 cost for three new security cameras which will be monitoring the park.
COUNCIL’S NEW BUSINESS
LAW DIRECTOR NEW BUSINESS
Scott Sollmann attended a forum with other village law directors and said it was very informative.
Scott will also establish a Records Policy for North Bend. This policy will advise us what documents the village is required to maintain and what documents are able to be discarded.
