Edon Village Council met with a quorum of five for the February 21, 2023 council meeting. Attorney Tom Thompson was present for the meeting via a phone call.
Council voted to approve the reading of the minutes of the last meeting and the financial report and bills.
In his police report, Chief Tom Szymczak shared that the mayor had sworn in a new officer for the department.
Heidi announced that the “Big Spring Cleanup” will be held on April 29th, the last Saturday in April.
The list of what can be put out is on the window in the entry of the village hall and will be posted on the village website.
Village Administrator Chad Ordway reported that the salt barn is completed and has passed inspection and the property on Park St. that had burned is scheduled to be torn down by Austin Fritsch.
In response to a question concerning an old house on Woodville St., Ordway said that they have submitted a certified letter this week to the owner to take care of the property, and that is step one in getting it taken care of.
Council voted to approve (declaring both emergencies) both Resolution 01-23, authorizing permission for an Ohio EPA grant and Ordinance 01-23, authorizing the purchase and installation of a generator for the water plant.
Council President Lee Lawrence publicly thanked Chief Szymczak for his kind and excellent “bedside manner” when he responded to an emergency call at Lawrence’s house that morning. Chief thanked him for the compliment.
At this point Lawrence made a motion to go into executive session to discuss potential disposition of property. There was no action taken.
