Beach City Village Council
KEY ACTION: Council wants the village of Brewster to take responsibility for the Hilltop Mobile home park's utilities.
DISCUSSION: The mobile home park is inside the Brewster corporation limits; however, Beach City supplies the utilities for the park. Dale Thompson, a resident who served on the former Board of Public Affairs, told council the electric lines were supplied by the village and should not be given away.
Heard complaints about recreational vehicles being driven near the ballfields. Police said they will keep watch on the situation.
Approved $483 for the purchase of emergency lights for an ambulance. Fire Chief Bill Anderson said an application has been sent to FEMA for funds to purchase a rescue pump truck and jaws of life.
Heard the village has a 47.32% water loss. The water loss has not been detected. Water leaks were repaired at Birch and Second Streets.
Heard the village will need to hire an engineering firm to make mandatory repairs at the wastewater treatment plant.
Agreed to meet with the City of Canton about the last water rate increase and to discuss a rate change.
Approved the purchase of four tasers for the police, from Clark County Sheriff’s Office, for $200.
Lauded Village Administrator Jim Spivey and police for planting flowers and cleaning around the police department. Council agreed to reimburse $23 to Gipe for the breakfast he supplied.
Learned a deed from 1947 was located and that property where the ballfields are located was given to the village by the Army Corps of Engineers. A letter will be sent to the Fairless Baseball/Softball Association about the priority of that group to use the fields.
