By: Anita Thomas
Mayor Pamela Clark called the April 15 Holiday City Village meeting to order, followed by roll call and the Pledge of Allegiance at 7:05 pm. Mayor Clark wasted no time in getting through the agenda.
The previous meeting’s minutes were approved with no questions from council. The next order of business was Resolution R-2021-7, For the approval of “ Then & Now purchase order (32-2021) for $9,184.00 issued to the Treasurer of the State of Ohio for the audit for 2019- 2020.
This Resolution was ready to be declared an emergency resolution necessary for the health, safety, and welfare of the Citizens of Holiday City and for the reasons of proper accounting of village funds.
Therefore, the resolution will be in full force and effective immediately. Once the Resolution was read,
Mayor Pamela Clark called on Clerk/ Treasurer Lauri Rupp, who stated that Council had already passed a resolution last month for the very same thing, but it had been put in under the wrong vender name.
Lauri Rupp went on to say that she had an old vender name for the Treasurer of the State when it was Josh Mandell, so when tried try to pay the bill, she was unable to find the purchase order that she had made.
The current purchase order replaces the purchase order from last month, but this time with the correct vender and name.
Next to take the floor was the Clerks/Treasurer Report by Lauri Rupp, who ask if anyone had any questions of the financial reports from her. No one responded. The deposits for March were $681,556.84. Expenses were $636,100.27.
The remaining balance is $4,171,000,652.82. Interest in the Sweep Account for March was $764.19 and $1266 in Star Ohio. The total Star Ohio balance is $184,869.53.
Rupp also addressed the fact that she received a letter from the Deputy Treasure of Ohio State’s office that says they are pleased to notify the Village of Holiday City has been approved for participation in the Ohio Market access program, which is part of the bond done for the sub-station every year.
Shawn Clark read the Mayor’s report, as Mayor Pamela Clark was out of town during the Mayor’s meeting, and Mr. Clark filled the role in her abscess.
Mr. Clark stated that while attending the Mayors meeting in Williams County, a call to support the youth within the community was discussed.
The mission statement read that their trying to prepare the youth for life. Currently they’re looking for mentors that are 21 or older and able to spend at least two hours a month with the child.
In the Administrator Report, Mr. Gary Baker addressed the council, noting it’s been a slow month; however, the Selwyn Drive project is almost complete.
The stone road is just waiting on the asphalt. A broken tile was also found and leaking water like crazy on the north side of the road.
However, in just a couple of days the tile was fixed, and grass seed had been planted. Baker says he’s also gotten both heaters fixed at the substation. Also, the siren had a blown fuse, which was replaced.
Everything worked properly during the re-test of the siren. Mayor Clark asked if there was any other new business. With no new business being brought before council, the meeting ended at 7:36 PM.
