Halloween Spooktacular planned in West Liberty


By April King

The West Liberty Village Council met in regular session Monday evening.

Ryan Brauen, from Wessler Engineering, presented concerns to the council about their aging storm sewers within the village and advised the council there are several sewer and water grants, along with zero-interest loans for such projects.

Brauen will present to the council a full report of the entire system in the coming months. He will also give his recommendation on how the village should precede with repairs and/or replacements.

Contrary to the bulk of Logan County, which will observe Beggars Night on Saturday, West Liberty has other plans.

The village will host its first annual Halloween Spooktacular.

The event will be held between Town Hall and Sweetie Pie’s Coffee Shop on East Columbus Street Thursday from 4:30-7:30 p.m.

Trick-or-treating, costume contests, pumpkin carving, carnival games, inflatable games, face painting, and more are planned.

Multiple food trucks will also be on hand, including Pig in a Pickle, which will be handing out FREE hot dogs while supplies last.

A spooky dance floor will be set up so you can hear DJ Skelly play some Halloween hits.

The village-wide Trick-or-Treat will run from 6-7:30 p.m. with two trunk-or-treat options set up at Bethel Mennonite Church and West Liberty First Church of God.

After recent conversations with village residents, the council heard a motion to not change its ordinance in regards to not allowing livestock within the village. The council voted to not change the ordinance at this time.

Village Clerk, Cindee Boyd, is heading up a fundraiser through the mayor’s office that will befit the West Liberty Business Association’s Christmas account.

Trees can be viewed at mywestliberty.com beginning November 1st.

The West Liberty Village Council will meet again on Monday, November 7th at 7 p.m. in Council Chambers.
