The Edon Village Council Meeting started with a Call to Order and the Reading and Approval of Minutes.
Presentation of Financial Report and Bills: Discussion of Maumee Valley and their suggestions and changes in zoning rules, some of those changes need to go before council for approval and a public hearing will take place before the next council meeting.
The Railroad St. Project to start on May 24, 2021
The Street Lights LED Program: This is a normal street lights maintenance program that when a street light fails it will be replaced with an LED light. The southeast quadrant of town is scheduled to be replaced this summer.
Public Works Building Project: A new Public Works Building is needed, one that is large enough to house equipment and still be able to work inside of the building without having to move 2 or more pieces of equipment outside. The estimated cost of a building such as this is around one million dollars.
A council member voiced concerns about the cost and wanted to know what other options are on the table besides the construction of a new building.
The option of building onto the current structure has been discussed but the age and condition of the current building is a cause for concern and could become quite costly for renovations.
The construction of a new building is still in the discussion stage.
