Wiser had Pittsburgh Tank do the required inspection. The comprehensive report identified many
deficiencies. The OEPA want all 39 of

divided and done as time and money allows.
He said some of the items are feasible and some actually don’t even make
Boock said she thought those were handled while she was sick. Sherri said she misunderstood her and when
she’d asked about it previously. Sherri
said that what was fixed was the leak that appeared after winter.
Johnny Shepherd asked Mr. Wiser more questions on the mud ring and
repairs. Mr. Wiser said ideally he would
like to have the inside of the tank galvanized, but that would be expensive
Wiser then brought up the extended maintenance proposal for the new water tower
by Pittsburgh Tank. He said that he
thought it was a good deal and would save the Village money. Mrs. Boock asked
if this covered both towers. Mr. Wiser
said that it was only for the new tower but that he had put a call in asking
about such an agreement on The Mechanic Street tower, but had not heard back
yet. Council discussed this and decided
to wait on a price for both towers before deciding.

attended. She said that in that
training, she found out she was required to have birthdates of all employees

she had those for employees

felt there probably wouldn’t be enough participation.
Hall reported that she and Sherri had attended an Economic Development with
Mayor Schag in Shelby. Economic
development in Northern Richland County was discussed. Mayor Schag is interested in creating a position
that would be housed in Shelby, but would benefit Shiloh and Plymouth as
well. Mayor Hall said that she explained
that Shiloh is basically land locked and there isn’t any room for expansion. During the meeting, finances to fund this
position were brought up. A donation
towards the position and expenses of $500.00 was raised. Council discussed this and while it may not
benefit Shiloh, it may. Council decided
not to make any decision about this just yet.

using it next year. She said she is also
