Guest Presentation

            Mrs. Boock welcomed Mrs. Teresa Cook from The Area Agency on Aging.  Mrs. Cook began by stressing that the levy money stays in Richland County helping Richland County Seniors.  She said the main objective is to help seniors stay in their own homes and be independent.  She said that the levy provides services to seniors who are not eligible for traditional programs and would fall through the cracks.  She said the 94% of the money actually went for services for the seniors.  Only 6% went for administration costs.  She said that they provide home delivered meals, transportation services, which are vital in Richland County, personal care, and even minor home repairs.  She encouraged everyone to vote YES on the levy and to call (419) 525-6757 if anyone knows a senior in need.

            Mrs. Boock and Council thanked Mrs. Cook for her time and service.



Resident’s Input


Village Inspector’s Report


            Mrs. Boock asked if there was a report and Sherri said that there wasn’t.  Mrs. Boock said that it’s in the job description that once a month if the inspector can’t be at the meeting that he provides a report.  She said that it doesn’t have to be long and drawn out, just report what has been done in the month.


Village Administrator’s Report


            Mr. Wiser read his report aloud.  Council and Mr. Wiser discussed several items from his report.  Mrs. Boock asked if the contractor that will be building the enclosure at the Water Treatment Plant has insurance.  She said that it’s mandatory that they have insurance for the time of the project and provide the Village with a copy of it.  Sherri said that she will call and get that information.



Fiscal Officer’s Report

            Sherri told Council she’d attended Village Fiscal Officer training in Perrysburg, put on by The State Auditor’s office.  She said it was an all day event and covered items such as common audit issues, legal updates, OPERS, budgetary law, and the Hinkle System Notes.

            She also said she had met with Wendy Jaquay from the Ohio Plan (insurance) on October 16.  She said Mrs. Jaquay had several suggestions for her like updating employee handbooks. 

            Sherri said that she had Sheila check into raising costs for Mayor’s Court.  Sheila found out surrounding area costs and Shiloh is the lowest.  She is checking on how to raise those costs since they haven’t been raised in a long time.

            Sherri read aloud a letter from the Plymouth Shiloh Food Pantry wishing to extend their lease for 2018.  Mr. Bailey asked if the Village had ever received the reports that were asked for last year.  Sherri said they had not.  Council discussed extending the lease.  Mr. Bailey made the motion to have the Food Pantry remit the reports that Pastor Wannamaker promised quarterly before the lease is granted.  The motion was seconded by Mrs. Shepherd, RC 3 yea.
