NORTH BALTIMORE - Village council has passed its 2014 budget, again.
Council met for a special meeting on Thursday to approve the 2014 budget, despite having done so in December.
In December, council thought it properly passed the $5. 2 million budget with a 3-2 vote.
However, according to village administrator Kathy Healy, the budget required the majority vote among all council members. When the budget was first passed in December, Jeff Bretz was absent from the meeting, as was Mayor Mike Julien. Council needed, at minimum a 4-2 vote to capture the majority of all council members.
During the first vote in December, Aaron Patterson and Leslee Thompson voted against the budget's passage.
On Thursday, during the special meeting, the budget passed by a 5-0 vote, Healy said.
Aaron Patterson was absent from the meeting and two new council members, Rich Rose and Art Patterson III, casted their votes.

Bowling Green and Wood County welcomed 2014 with a blanket of white causing numerous accidents, though most were minor.
The snowstorm produced an estimated three inches of snow. Complicating matters this morning was blowing and drifting.
Both the Ohio Highway Patrol and the Wood County Sheriff’s office report numerous slide-offs and cars in ditches throughout the county.
Wood County went to a Level 1 snow emergency as of 7:59 a.m. this morning.
A dispatcher at the OHP this morning said she did not have time to elaborate, as she had at least 20 calls to make to arrange for vehicles to be towed out of ditches.
Sheriff Mark Wasylyshyn reminds all drivers to “drive for conditions.” He says safe speeds should be maintained and people should be prepared for the snow drifts.

Wood County's first baby of the year was born amidst the swirling snowdrifts and frosty temperatures of the first big snowstorm of the winter.
Both debuted in the wee hours of Thursday, after nearly 12 hours of build-up, but unlike droves of area drivers trying to get to work or appointments, little Avery Pearl Jackson arrived warmly, smoothly and without harm.
Stacy and Bill Jackson of Deshler welcomed their daughter at 4:45 a.m. Jan. 2 at Wood County Hospital. Delivered by Dr. Ian Leggat, Avery weighed in at 7 pounds, 8 ounces.
Stacy says her due date was not until Jan. 7, but her doctor decided to induce her labor.
The couple initially had plans for New Year's Eve that involved going out to dinner with another couple who recently had a baby of their own "but we decided we'd better not." Instead, the mother-to-be opted to rest while she could.

A total of 124 safe rides were provided in Bowling Green by the Swallow Your Pride, Call for a Ride offer on New Year’s Eve, according to Sandy Wiechman, Wood County Safe Communities coordinator.
She said the first call was received at 5:40 p.m. Tuesday and the last call at 5:10 a.m. Wednesday.
The busiest time was from midnight through 3:15 a.m. with 45 calls. There were nine calls between 3:15 and 5:10 a.m.
Bowling Green Police issued two citations for drunk driving.
At 10:54 p.m. Tuesday, Evan Karchner, Maumee, was cited for operating a vehicle while impaired (BAC 0.148) at Summit Street and Frazee Avenue.
At 1:54 a.m. Wednesday, Jessica Phorpe, Xenia, was cited for operating a vehicle while impaired (BAC 0.260) and stopping in the roadway after police found her stopped in the 100 block of East Wooster Street.
“I would like to thank the numerous partners who made this evening an overwhelming success,” Wiechman said. “Without the wrecker companies, Super Cab, and the downtown Bowling Green bar owners, this evening would not have been the overwhelming success that it was. Special thank you to Chief Brad Conner, Major Tony Hetrick, Lt. Jerrod Savidge, and Barbara Ruland for the extra assistance in planning and implementation of the program.”
