Sugarcreek Council hears from councilman Sam Beachy.


Sugarcreek Council held a brief meeting Nov. 20 to discuss concerns in the village. Mayor Jeff Stutzman wanted to promote Light Up Sugarcreek, which will be held Dec. 2 from 4-7 p.m. on Main Street in front of the World’s Largest Cuckoo Clock.

There will be free horse-drawn sleigh rides, free hot dogs, cookies, s'mores and hot chocolate. Live music also will be provided. Children can visit with Santa Claus, and photos may be taken. The first 100 children will receive a tree ornament. A live nativity will be offered at Sweetwater Farm.

Council also did the following:

—Learned from Kevin Kaser, village administrator, the traffic light at U.S. 39 and Ohio 93 needs repaired. Kaser said the repairs are to be made the first week of December.

—Heard a report from council members that several streetlights are not working. Kaser said to get the pole number so it can be reported to American Electric Power.

—Discussed if a no engine brake sign is still located near the high school/middle school. It was reported the noise is very distracting. Kaser will check for the current sign.

—Held the second reading to amend an ordinance, passed Nov. 21, 2015, for the income tax ordinance in the village.

—Held a brief discussion about the cheesemakers statue and when it may arrive. Stutzman said the parking lot located on Broadway and Main streets should be torn out, with grass planted, and the statue should be set in place at the site by spring.
