Guest Presentation

Resident’s Input

Village Inspector’s Report

Village Administrator’s Report

            Mr. Wiser read his report aloud.  He then went on to discuss the Mechanic Street water tower.  He explained that The OEPA demanded an inspection be done on the tower.  Mr. Wiser had Pittsburgh Tank do the required inspection.  The comprehensive report identified many deficiencies.  The OEPA want all 39 of those points addressed.  Mr. Wiser said that there were actually only two that are critical and the rest will be divided and done as time and money allows.  He said some of the items are feasible and some actually don’t even make sense.

            Mrs. 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.

            Mr. 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 also.

            Mr. 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.

Fiscal Officer’s Report

            Sherri gave Council the paperwork from The Open Public Records Training she attended.  She said that in that training, she found out she was required to have birthdates of all employees and Council members.  She told them that she had those for employees

            Finally, she told them she needed to move some money around in certain funds.  She said she didn’t need to move it from fund to fund, but to different line items, within the same fund.   She said that due to extra mosquito spraying, she didn’t have enough money designated to County Welfare, but extra money in Zoning Planning, which are both part of the General Fund.  She said that she also needed more money for Water Plant Filtration Chemicals that she could move from Water Plant Filtration Other Op. 

            Mrs. Boock made the motion to allow Sherri to move moneys within the same fund, seconded by Mr. Bailey, RC 5 yea.


Standing Committee Reports


            Mr. Bailey spoke about having an Ad Hoc Meeting to get ready for The Tree Lighting and Santa.  No meeting was set at this time.

Council Member’s Miscellaneous Reports

            Mr. Bailey asked about bringing Halloween activities back such as a parade and cakewalk.  Council discussed this and felt there probably wouldn’t be enough participation.


Mayor’s Report

            Mayor 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.

            Mayor Hall also said she is putting together a grant application trying to get money to help restore the ball field.  She said she has been in contact with a girl’s softball league that may be interested in using it next year.  She said she is also putting together an application for beautifying the Brick Pond with some benches.
