Beach City Village Council

Monday meeting

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.

OTHER ACTION:

  • 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.

FOR YOUR INFO:

  • A moment of silence was held for Connie White, who died recently. She served on council and was also the mayor for four-terms.

UP NEXT: Meets at 7 p.m. June 6 at 105 E. Main St.
