On August 8, in West Unity, the daughters of Mark Null were presented with a reminder on how their father impacted the community.
“Your father would always like to sit in on council meetings, so one day we got him his own name plate”, Mayor Peggy Bernath said to his 2 girls as she presented them with a photo, name plate of their father Mark, along with a certificate for free ice cream. Mark Null was a rapper who recently was taken in a car accident.
After the presentation, council discussed the possibility of a food truck ordinance. Recently a food truck vendor had called to see if there were any guidelines to operating in the village. Even though other cities have more food truck traffic, council decided to wait and see how things progress before taking steps of adding an ordinance.
An ordinance to amend the sewer rates was passed, along with one to amend water rates. No change in billing would take place, since the rate of sewer would rise and the rate of water would decrease. Making the change cancel each other out. The change was made to show an increase in revenue, in order to receive funding from the Water Supply Revolving Loan Account.
Also discussed were the planning of Halloween Trick-O-Treat times. The Village decided on Saturday, 26th from 6pm to 7:30pm, just before Halloween. The next regular meeting will take place on September 12th, Thursday at 7:30pm.
