Russells Point authorizes reception of Public Works Grant (Audio included)

Spirited discussion highlighted the first of two May meetings for the Russells Point Village Council Monday night. Authorizing the Public Works Grant and tax administration were among the topics on the agenda.

Reception of the Public Works Grant funds worth $70,606 was approved without the normal three readings. The funds are earmarked for the New Trail Extension which is an addition to the Open Space Project.

The Central Collection Agency out of Cleveland is employed by the village to collect taxes. Two local collection agencies contacted Mayor Robin Reames about the possibility of replacing CCA. After hearing a historical background about past collection practices from former fiscal officer Sue Leonard, council determined that CCAs performance has been satisfactory. However, council is receptive to exploring new opportunities for potentially better service. The two agencies will be invited to address council at a future meeting.

Council plans on applying for the Community Development Grant. The grant, which could bring as much as $300,000 to the village, could be used for updating the sewer system, developing a community market, or street paving.

Council approved the hiring of Clemons Nelson and Associates out of Lima to update personnel policies and job descriptions.

The council will next meet on May 20th at 7:00 p.m.

Robin Reames discusses items from Monday's meeting.
