Minutes, November 20, 2017
Finance - Mr. Moorman
Dave is working on North Bend’s waste collection project and will share Council’s survey input to our Request for Quote from curbside waste collection providers to Council and Scott Sollmann for review.
Dave talked about the Riverfront Project and whether we can proceed alone especially since we neither control the property nor have the Village of Cleves as a partner. Mayor Sammons stated that after Mayor Danny Stacey resigned and Jan Rouse took over as Mayor of Cleves, they are more interested in developing their village proper and as a result, selling the property to North Bend. Mayor Sammons stated that MKSK and Burgess & Niple recommended that North Bend get control of the property as a first step.

To Council Members for Your Information and Review
This month was consumed with 2018 budget preparation along with final audit corrections and normal monthly activities.
Mr. Moorman scheduled a Finance Committee prior to this meeting to review and make recommendations for the 2018 budget. And will request adoption of the proposed Ordinance.
During our 2015-16 audit, the auditor questioned State approval of the Beautification Fund. It was ultimately denied approval by the State Auditor’s office. I am asking Council to adopt the proposed legislation to reduce original appropriations to the Beautification Fund to zero and reallocating those funds to the General Fund. I created a line item under the General Fund for these appropriations. I will still create a Beautification Fund report as usual.
We issued 2 purchase orders this month to Duke Energy for street lighting, $40.15 and a replacement PO to cover 2017 Beautification Fund expenses from the General Fund. 12,000.00. The prior approved POs for these expenses have been closed.
Distributed to council members this month are the following reports:
· Monthly Cash Flow Analysis:
Showing money in/money out and the check book balance
· Payment and charge Register Report:
Includes all checks & automatic payments taken directly from our checkbook since last Council Meeting
· Receipts Register Report:
