Bellefontaine Council considers agreement with DPL (Audio included)

Bellefontaine City Council heard a presentation by DPL Energy Representative Robyn Livesay while considering an affinity agreement Tuesday.

Livesay spoke with council about an optional program offered through DPL Energy that could save city residents on their electric rate. Residents who have not changed their rates from about nine cents per kilowatt hour could receive around a 35 percent decrease in their electric rate if they opt into the program. The agreement will be considered again at the December 11th meeting.

Service- Safety Director Jim Holycross comments on the presentation.

Council passed a resolution congratulating Suzuka, Japan on its 70th anniversary. Suzuka has been Bellefontaine's sister city for 21 years. It was formed as a combination of two towns and twelve villages and has grown to nearly 200,000 citizens. Council President David Henry and Service-Safety Director Jim Holycross will be leaving Thursday for a celebration in Suzuka. They will give the resolution, a written statement, and gifts to officials at the celebration.

Two ordinances were introduced on first readings. The ordinances would form two Tax Increment Financing (TIF) Districts in Bellefontaine. The two districts were proposed in the main street area (from Lake Avenue north to Northview Drive) and on the east side (from the Hilliker YMCA north toward State Route 47). The ordinances are establishing a fund for economic development in those areas.

Mayor Adam Brannon reminded council that the Hometown Christmas Parade is scheduled for Saturday at noon. The parade will start at the Logan County Fairgrounds and head north up Main Street to the Columbus Avenue intersection. Santa Claus will wrap up the parade and will spend time at the Holland Theatre listening to children's Christmas wishes. The Holland will show a movie at two p.m.

Mayor Brannon discusses the Suzuka resolution and the parade.

Bellefontaine City Council will meet again on December 11th at 7:30 pm.

We encourage open dialogue among people who may disagree. Difficult conversations must be had sometimes to make progress. If you disagree, please disagree respectfully. Cruelty will not be tolerated. This is a family friendly group.
