The Maintenance Supervisor’s Report is available at the Village office.


The Deputy Clerk’s Report is available at the Village office.


Sgt. Raker reported there were 51 calls for service for the month of August, however, none of those cases were issued to detectives.

On October 22nd from 10:00am – 2:00pm, there will be a drug take back program held at Miami Township Fire House on Shady Lane.


Sheryl Ross and Linda Graviss spoke to council regarding how beautiful North Bend has become with our beautification committee placing flower planters and hanging baskets throughout the village. They mentioned how stunning Shady Lane is approaching Aston Oaks with the new hanging baskets. They asked council if Edinburgh Place residents (a private drive) could possibly purchase hanging baskets to be placed on their street. They would pay for the flowers and labor as well.

Sheryl Ross also mentioned she is in favor of the Riverfront Project and happy to see our playground a success.


Chief Ober reported there were 8 EMS details and 0 fire runs. There were no drug related incidents for August, however, he stated it seems as though these drug incidents are moving around the city so we could see an increase in the near future.

Dave Moorman said Chief Ober and his assistant did an excellent job with the CPR training sessions held in council hall on September 17th. Mayor Sammons would like to make this an annual event.


No Report.

Dave Moorman said the State of Ohio’s School Report Cards have been published and the scores are challenging. The schools have responded by stating this is the third year of different tests and the system should be left to stabilize.

The Beautification Committee meeting was September 10th. Rick displayed the "gift box" idea, which is a painted wood box with a large, aluminum bow that fits over the existing flower boxes to be displayed throughout North Bend in the winter months. A winter banner will top this decoration.

We will discontinue the "Light up North Bend" event. It’s a very busy time of year for everyone. Fran stated our holiday lights will be turned on when Mayor Sammons and Rick agree on a date.

DEPUTY CLERK’S REPORT September 26, 2016 Marilyn Kramer

I attended a Hamilton County Training and Exercise Planning Workshop for emergency management at Nathanael Green Lodge earlier this month. I am currently gathering details of what our plan of action would be in an emergency. Hamilton County asked all participants what training topics we would like to see in the future that would be beneficial to us.

I have forms available if anyone would like to participate in the Veteran’s Memorial Paver Program. They are $25.00 per paver and we currently have 11 orders.

Riverfront Project Open House was well attended and there were many good questions.

The Three Rivers Historical Society will host a Fall Harvest Pancake Breakfast to raise funds

for speakers and history projects beneficial to the community. It’s Saturday, Oct. 1st 8:00am – 11:00am at the Miami Township Senior Center, 8 N. Miami Avenue, Cleves.

Adults - $6.00 children ages 3-12 - $3.00 children under age 2 - free

I’ll be sending in the bids for our adult fitness equipment for the playground grant this week.

I’ve been in contact with Hamilton County regarding the issues we’ve had regarding the

rubber matting and if it was required. This would change the amount of the bids dramatically. They confirmed there is no deadline for the bids to be submitted.

It was brought to my attention last week that each village, township and city is responsible

for deceased, indigent individuals that are residents of that village. A hospice social worker contacted me regarding one of our residents in this situation. I spoke with Scott about this ….

Do we need an agreement with a funeral home, a crematory….etc?

I’ve attached the Ohio Revised Code Section 9.15 stating this has been law since 2007. I also

included guidelines for the City of Blue Ash regarding this topic. (Also see ORC Section 5101.52.1 - dated 2006)
