PEMBERVILLE - Village officials said Tuesday they will make an effort to educate the public about a 2005 ordinance regarding parking on some streets before they turn to citations.
The ordinance sets limits on the hours and how long vehicles may be parked on portions of Front, Walnut and Water streets in the downtown.
Council Member William Long said he has received questions about the parking. There are no signs and council briefly discussed how to go about reminding residents of the prohibitions.
Police Chief James Darling said he had talked to one resident about the issue and the vehicle had been moved.
Council will check with village solicitor Mike Marsh to find out what signs, if any, are needed, and look into other ways to educate residents before moving ahead with citations.
â€¢Â Â Â Agreed to spend $200 to improve security around the police station.
â€¢Â Â Â Approved spending no more than $3,606 on road salt. The village has a price of $48 a ton but is trying to negotiate something closer to the Ohio Department of Transportation price of $32.52 a ton. The village has paperwork to get into the 2014 ODOT bidding program.
â€¢Â Â Â Approved the hiring of David K. Johnson as part-time utility associate to oversee the water treatment operation. Johnson has the required license to handle the position while the village seeks a permanent solution.
â€¢Â Â Â Learned Pemberville Elementary students are conducting a fund-raiser that both helps the school and promotes village businesses. The effort runs until Oct. 25.
â€¢Â Â Â Heard Wood Lane Superintendent Melanie Stretchbery talk about the 2.95-mill, five-year levy that Wood Lane has on the Nov. 5 ballot.
