PEMBERVILLE - A new water heater has kept the village pool comfortable during cool weather since the facility opened last weekend.
Manager Nathan Decker told village council Tuesday night that attendance has been "OK" and that the water temperature was 80 degrees. That's up from 58 degrees when the pool was filed and he was doing some work in the cold water.
"The pool has had a lot of help from the village utility department, the street department and others to get going," Mayor Gordon Bowman said. "We're looking for a good pool season."
Bowman noted the new heater is the result of a grant received in late 2012 from the Wood County Park District.
He has two projects to propose for 2013 park grants and asked council to make other suggestions by the June 18 meeting. Applications are due at the end of June.
Bowman wants to resubmit a request for help to resurface the village's tennis courts and a new request for money to help install gravel parking or a walking trail at the northwest park. The village can submit three proposals.
Bowman also reported the village has mowed one neglected property on Front Street at the owner's expense, and has been told another Front Street property will be mowed Saturday by the owner.
Police Chief James Darling was directed to notify the owner of a Forrest Avenue home to mow that lawn or have the village do so at the owner's expense.
• Learned the Board of Public Affairs will contract for required water testing. Council Member William Long said having in-house lab equipment and staff do the work is more expensive than hiring an outside service to meet EPA requirements.
• Heard Long report the BPA was not interested in having the village sell a two-acre parcel to Sunoco Logistics. He said the village has one water well in the area an envisions additional wells. "The BPA sees no advantage for the village in this potential sale," Long said.
