Approved- payment of bills totaling $103,011.15. Fiscal Officer Deb Fry noted two of the larger payments in that total were $48,650.00 for the new auger unit installed at the waste water treatment plant and $4,916.00 for the 1930 waterline replacement project. She told council that the income tax revenue is still up.

Approved- a quote from Caterpillar, Inc. for the purchase of a Model 430 Backhoe.

Approved- a request from the Girl Scouts to hold a doggy wash. Village Administrator Danny Wood said the water used would approximate a cost of $6.20.

Following discussion at their month’s end meeting, Cardington Council will vote to give village employees a two percent pay raise when they meet on June 6.

Additionally, council appointed Jason Bowman, one of the owners of Anchorage Preservations, to the Planning and Zoning Board. He will fill the un-expired term of Richard Garner, who resigned because he has moved from the village.

After an executive session based on ORC 121.22 (G)(1), council accepted the resignation of William Stufflebean wastewater operator.

Cardington Mayor Susie Peyton said she had attended the Marion Area Safety Council meeting where the village received an award presented to companies who work an entire year without a lost time injury or illness and decreased their incident rate by 25 percent over the previous year. The village has received this award for the past three years.

Fire Department

Gary Goodman, Cardington Fire Chief, asked for more volunteer firemen when Cardington Village Council met on May 16.

“We need more volunteers,” he said. “ Right now we have 17 and we should have 25,” he said.

Interested persons should contact the department. Goodman also told council a portion of the fire house floor is being repaired.

Police Department

The resignation of police auxiliary officer Charles Chandler, was accepted effective April 18. He is now working for Westerville.

Police Chief James Wallace said he has three candidates to be interviewed for the position of full-time and part-time police officers interviews were set for with two committee chairpersons and Mayor Peyton.

Public comment

The new owner of R & G Muscular Therapy, 104 West Main Street, was present to introduce the new business to council and the community.

Matt Meyers, village resident, sent a message commending village employees Clint and Cameron for picking up his brush and going beyond their regular duty.
