Historical society building experiences water leak

A water leak at the Mineral City Historical Society building resulted in a bill for the use of 64,200 gallons of water last month. The building typically uses 3,000-5,000 gallons in a month.


At the Jan. 23 meeting of Mineral City Council, it was reported a water leak had occurred at the Historical Society building at 8728 N. High St.

Fiscal officer Darissa Lute said the village received a bill from the Tuscarawas County Water and Sewer Department that included the use of 64,200 gallons of water.

Lute said the building typically uses 3,000-5,000 gallons per month. The village will pay the bill, but Mayor Laurie Green will contact the county to resolve the matter.

A community meeting will be held March 22 at 7 p.m. at the fire station. The meeting was originally to be held at the library. The purpose of the public meeting is to gather input on the proposed park complex.

The village is looking to build a park, which would include basketball and pickleball courts, a walking track, a pavilion, new restrooms, barbecue grills and more. The village will seek grant funding for the estimated cost of $1.5 million.

Benefit for Stacie Metcalf

Council heard there will be a rigatoni dinner benefit for village resident Stacie Metcalf on Feb. 26 from noon to 8 p.m. Metcalf is battling stage-four breast cancer, and all money raised will be used to help offset medical costs. The cost to attend is $10 per ticket and can be purchased at the TV Tavern. The benefit will be held at the Drunken Uncle Tavern at 4995 Railroad St.

No levy on May ballot

Council will not be able to place a 5 mill replacement general operating expense levy on the May ballot. The levy was renewed in 2021 and will expire in 2026, at which point the village may place the levy on the ballot.
