OAKWOOD – Oakwood Village Council met March 11 with five council members present. Councilman Phil Stucky was absent.
Resident Nolan “Tucker” Shisler requested that council extend the number of years (which was 30 on the original resolution) on Resolution 99-R-03 to allow the house located on this property to remain in its current position. Council voted unanimously to amend the resolution to read 60 years.
Village administrator John Keyes stated that the water and sewer pipe for the Cooper project has arrived and that the project seems to be starting to come together. The Cooper Farms Truck Wash will be located on the east edge of Oakwood along Ohio 613. It was noted in a 2012 council meeting that the cost of the total project would be in the range of about $1 million and would eventually employ 25-30 people.
Keyes also told council that they have started cleaning the other water filter.
Council voted unanimously to suspend the rules and declare an emergency then unanimously passed Resolution 13-R-03 which approves the issuance and sale of revenue bonds for the natural gas system.
The Central Collection Agency tax advisors will be in the area again this year. They will be available March 18 in Oakwood to assist residents with village tax forms.
Oakwood Mayor Erhard “Bud” Henke advised council that there was still no answer from the state regarding street light maintenance.
Henke also told council that the demolition of the house on Auglaize Street had been turned over to the village solicitor due to the property owner not responding to the requests of the village. Henke noted that the property may have to be condemned before the demolition can begin.
EMS coordinator Chad Brown provided council with the particulars regarding the transmission and fuel leak problem with the new squad. Brown stated that there had been a gas tank fuel leak at the seam in the tank. The steel tank was replaced with a plastic tank. The transmission problems are not fixed to date but it is being looked at again.
