The Village is undertaking an important cost cutting Capital Improvement Project this year; its conversion of our street lights to LED throughout the Village. The conversion includes new Roadway lights in the historic Village and Post Top lights in Aston Oaks. The conversion is now underway and should be complete by June, 2019. The Village will make a $105,000 Capital Investment with a 5-year payback period. The new lights will both help improve safety for drivers and pedestrians and reduce our street lighting expense from $2,100 per month to less than $300 per month.
Shirley Smith favorably commented on the new street lights in her neighborhood; the whole street is well lit.

- Our Spring Clean-up dates are May 6 - May 20. The yard waste dumpster will be located on Post Street behind the administration building. Our tire recycling event will be May 20 – May 28. The tire recycling dumpster will be paid for through a grant with Keep Cincinnati Beautiful.
- I submitted the State of Ohio Hazard Mitigation Grant pre-application on Friday, March 22. They will contact us in mid-April to advise of our status.
- It’s We Thrive’s 10th Anniversary and they will be doing an article on North Bend and our journey over the years with them regarding their guidance in making North Bend a healthier place to live which includes our playground, shelter, security system, lighting, adult fitness equipment and baby kits for caregivers.
- Our Wellness Committee meeting is Saturday, March 30 at 9:30am. We will confirm our action plan and establish future meeting dates. All are welcome to attend.
- The INEOS meeting is Thursday, April 25 at 5:30pm at the Sayler Park Community Center. All North Bend residents are invited to attend.
- Miami Township’s Drug Take Back date is Saturday, April 27th between 10:00am – 2:00pm at Miami Township Administration Building, 3780 Shady Lane. It will be set up in the fire bays as a drive-thru drop off. This is a safe way to dispose of prescription drugs.
- I checked with the insurance company handling the car accident from October 6, 2018 on US 50 which destroyed our planter, pole and banner. They advised me they cannot pay on any of the claims until they have received all claims. Duke Energy has not submitted theirs as of yet.
- We received payment from the Edinburgh Condo Association for their hanging basket flowers.
- The cost for our dumpster, which Rumpke picks up each week is now costing us $125.00 per month. After speaking with Rick, I contacted Rumpke and asked that they only pick up two times per month. This lowered our bill to $62.00 monthly.
- Jason Cassidy, a Boy Scout with Troop 614 from St. Antoninus is asking for a project to complete for his Eagle Scout Badge. Rick, Fran and I met and we are asking that he plan and landscape the property at 3 Miami. Rick has put together a few suggestions for him. Shirley also advised Rick that she located a William Henry Harrison park monument that we can incorporate into this property. (see the attached picture)
Jason wanted to be here tonight to advise council of the Eagle Scout Badge requirements, but he had other commitments. He stated, while a Life Scout, you should plan, develop and give leadership to others in a service project helpful to any religious institution, school or your community. This project proposal must be approved by the organization benefiting from the effort and his unit leader before he starts the project. He must use the “Eagle Scout Service Project Workbook” in meeting these requirements. (Deadline is May 18, 2019) I met with Jason last Wednesday and showed him the property to be landscaped. He’s obtaining approval from his unit leader.
