Cardington Council approved a resolution certifying the county auditor for inclusion on the tax duplicate the amounts owed to the village for delinquent water and sewer charges.

Fiscal Officer Deb Fry said the charges totaled $12,747.19.

Village administrator

Danny Wood, village administrator, said the new waste water operator, Walter Pollock, began his duties at the plant. He also said the EPA visited the waste water plant for an inspection.

Wood explained that the new water line would be laid on Fourth Street on July 6, the day CYT will be closed.

He said the water tower has been repainted and they are now sand blasting the detention tanks.

He also suggested that if there is any money left after the new water line is laid, the village should consider paving North Fourth Street.

Legislation

Two ordinances passed second reading. One looks to establish base compensation for certain village employees and the other would establish a 2 percent increase in compensation for village employees.

Council will hold a public hearing during its next meeting on July 5.

Fry explained that it is required by the ORC to publish the meeting that the 2017 budget (focusing on revenues) will be voted on. The ordinance is due to the Morrow County Auditor by July 20.

Mayor Peyton said Lowe’s of Marion has offered to complete improvements in the village park and will furnish $2500 in materials and their own employees.
