Recent Meeting Notes

The meeting began with prayer from Pastor Steve Cox then the Pledge of Allegiance was recited by the council and visitors.

 

There were two public hearings. The first public hearing was regarding Chris Breese petition to vacate an unpaved public way running east and west between N. Glenwood Drive and N. Graham Street in Cambridge City. Nobody was available to protest the vacate, so the town attorney will record the information and the unpaved area will be vacated. 

 

The next public hearing was on the 2023 Budget. Town attorney Bever went over the proposed budget numbers advising the town did not see much of an increase overall on the budget and still are able to give raises to the employees. There was a slight increase of 3% to the General Fund and 1.3% towards the rest of the funds. This low percentage should not make a big impact on property taxes. The budget has been advertised in the Western Wayne News or interested parties can look on the GATEWAY system to review the budget. The October meeting, the budget will be passed by the town council.

 

Guests: David Jones from the Milton Masonic Lodge and four other lodge members were present to donate $1000.00 to the Capital Hill Cemetery Fund. 

 

Gary Cole and Tiffany Magill were present to discuss vacating an alleyway between their houses on North Mulberry Street. The alley in discussion has not been paved and has to be maintained due to the amount of weeds growing in this alley. A motion to allow Attorney Bever to begin a petition to vacate this alleyway was approved and a public hearing will be at the October meeting.

 

Unfinished Business: The notice of public sale of real estate or commonly known as the southeast corner of N. Green Street and W. Maple Street was up for sale. One offer of $1,150.00 was received and approved to purchase this lot that has been maintained by the property owner for 30 plus years. The bid will be recorded at the Wayne County recorders office.  

 

New Business: A motion to pay application 1, 2, and the retainage fee to Milestone Contractors in the amount of $154,000.00 was approved for the 2021-2022 CCMG paving project.

 

A motion to approve a $9000. donation for helmets was received from American Legion to the fire department. 

 

Staff Reports: Fire Chief said Canal Days was a success, both the hog roast and the parade.

 

Superintendent of Public Works Ken Risch advised council he has CCMG funds left and will begin paving Parkway Drive in front of the Lincold High/Middle School with the leftover funds. 

 

Capital Hill Cemetery was discussed again in length. A motion was made for Ken to install a gate at the entrance to the cemetery and to begin looking at lights to install inside the cemetery. 

 

With nothing else to discuss, the meeting adjourned at 7:45 p.m.
