Building on North Broadway to be demolished

Building on North Broadway to be demolished

Sugarcreek Mayor Walt Wilson introduced Lynn Dessecker as the new marketing representative for the village at the April 1 village council meeting. She began her duties on March 25.

In another matter, at a recent zoning/planning meeting, a discussion was held about village zoning regulations that need to be updated. Zoning inspector Tom Mueller contacted Julie Lindner, who was hired to write the regulations a few years ago, and asked her to write an update. She has agreed to update the regulations.

Council accepted a quote from Yoder Excavating of Baltic for $12,582 to demolish the building located at 100 N. Broadway. A rough estimate was presented to renovate the village restrooms. Council expects a solid quote on the restroom renovation. The removal of the building project could be completed by May.

Council also did the following:

—Held the first reading of an ordinance authorizing the mayor to execute a letter to the Ohio Department of Transportation District 11 real estate administrator certifying the village has effective and adequate control over the area needed for construction and maintenance of sidewalks for the Maple Street improvement project. The ordinance was presented as an emergency; however, it will have a second reading as two council members were absent.

—Heard the 2017 Chevrolet Tahoe police cruiser will no longer be needed, as the new cruiser has been built. Solicitor Doug Frautschy has been authorized to draw up an ordinance to allow the village to accept sealed bids for the Tahoe.

—Learned the bed tax committee wants to discuss the fireworks event held in the village at its next meeting on April 23.

—Heard the annual renewal for village health insurance has begun with Formfire opening until April 19. Renewal quotes should be available by the first week in May.

—Agreed to review the contract with Kimble Trash and Recycling regarding the time of day when they begin picking up trash in the village.

Other information

A discussion was held about if village ordinances can be posted on the village website. Council agreed it could be a potential project in the future.

The next meeting will be held April 22 at 7 p.m. at 410 S. Broadway in Sugarcreek. The meeting was changed from April 15.
