students present a proposal to Eolia administrators | Local News
On May 10, at 7:01 p.m., the Board of Directors of the Village of Eolia began its regular monthly meeting. Consent agenda items were approved unanimously.
The results of the research on alternatives to the online sewer payment system currently in use have revealed an option that can be used at no cost to the Village. Likewise, the scale of fees for citizens is very comparable to that currently in force. Information had been sent to directors ahead of the meeting so that they could read a Court Money offer, designed to meet the needs of cities the size of Eolia. Trustee Josh Magruder has decided to accept the contract and put it into effect immediately. Director Tim Nothaker seconded the motion and the board approved the motion.
Zumwalt village clerk announced that a blood drive will be organized in the Eolia community building on June 16 from 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
The state of the clerk’s office was discussed. Zumwalt reported discovering a new leak under his desk but did not determine the point of origin of the water. In addition, the office has not received any offers regarding the necessary repairs so far. Directors discussed the matter, the decision being to submit the idea until the new leak could be located.
The village maintenance supervisor, John Haake, provided a report on the condition of the sewer system. The pump acquired for the Second Street location was manufactured as previously planned by the Commission. An appointment will be made with Perkins to discuss the installation.
Haake also reported that three new cleanouts have been installed on Highway D and the system is operational. The repair site still needs to be seeded and straw placed over the area after the dirt is deposited. With Femmer Drive having been repaved, soil is still needed near Mr. Yates’ house to help with drainage.
Kain Eivins and Rileigh Kuntz, students in Mr. Rodgers’ English class at Clopton Junior High, was hoping to get board approval for an upcoming project. On behalf of their teacher and their peers, Eivins and Kuntz applied to install a new basketball hoop / board / net in City Park. The students scheduled a fundraiser on May 26 to pay for the equipment and asked the trustees to provide the installation of the new sports equipment.
In accordance with the request, Administrator Jerry Burbridge offered to provide the installation of the elements as suggested. Administrator David Land seconded and unanimous approval followed.
At 7:20 p.m., Burbridge moved the adjournment of the meeting, with Nothaker’s second followed by unanimous approval by council members.
