The Village of Russells Point Council conducted its first June meeting Monday.
Mayor Robin Reames reported that the village would be hosting dumpsters at the municipal building from June 7th to the 8th. This will give residents the opportunity to dispose of hard to get rid of items, like couches and mattresses. The dumpsters cannot be used for organic or hazardous materials.
The council also voted on contributing to the Indian Lake Chamber of Commerce fireworks fund. The motion was voted down 4-0. Two council members abstained from the vote. The council voted it down because the Ohio Revised Code states that funds spent by a council must benefit the health, welfare, and safety of the community. However, the village already dedicates about $723 in additional police coverage and directing traffic on the night of the event.
Mayor Reames comments on the meeting.
Bill and Amanda Arnett from Helping Local Families were present to speak to council. Helping Local Families is a non-profit organization that helps people with food and clothing. They spoke to the council to promote a “No Bullying” event at Emil Davis Park on July 28th. The group is also looking for reliable volunteers. Anyone interested may contact Amanda Arnett (935-6115) or Bill Arnett (935-3366).
Bill Arnett speaks about the organization and event.
The Village of Russells Point Council will meet again on June 18th at 7 pm.
