Residents Buck and Beth Spangler and Doug Czako were also present. Ryan Sark from Mid-Ohio Water Management arrived after the meeting had started.
HEARING OF VISITORS:
- Buck Spangler addressed the flooding problems at his property on Duvall Road since ODOT has finished the overpass and cut the drainage tile. His property is flooded and has nowhere to drain. His septic tank is full and the health department is coming out tomorrow to test the surface water. If there is bacteria in the water the EPA will be notified immediately. The four properties east of him are also flooded and having water drainage problems. He has been running two sump pumps in his basement that run constantly. Doug Czako shared that he is having the same problems at his house three doors east of Spangler’s. Mr. Peters said the Trustees will help in any way they can to get ODOT to fix this problem.
- We have two variance applications and a meeting scheduled for each.
- Jayme is communicating with the attorney of Dino Martin regarding that zoning violation.
- There is water in the ditch at Lockbourne Eastern Road south of Duvall Road. Chris Shine suggested contacting the phone company or the gas company because they were the last two in there working and may have hit a tile.
- Caravan Mobile Home Park had a catch basin put in.
- The platform at the cemetery is in bad shape. Kevin had a bid to fix the platform and replace the steps for $2094.00. The Trustees asked him to get another bid, possibly to replace the platform with wood.
