- Last month Dave Moorman asked for a list of the HMAG (Hazard Mitigation Assistance Grant) application funding awards. Please see the attached.

- I attended the Hamilton County Planning and Development Commission meeting on October 9th.

This meeting is to outline the county’s needs, goals and programs for housing, economic and community development for their 5-year consolidation plan for 2020-2024. They wanted our input as to what’s important to our communities. They primarily discussed public housing and how to have landlords take better care of their properties. I advised them North Bend’s goal is to increase economic and community development and would like to see grants awarded to smaller communities.

- Election Day is Tuesday, November 5th, 2019. The polls open at 6:30am.

- At the previous INEOS meeting, the committee voted to hold quarterly meetings rather than bi-monthly meetings. As a result, we are not having a meeting this Thursday in North Bend. The next INEOS meeting is Thursday, December 12th at Three Rivers School.
