Pemberville council supports Free Fair


PEMBERVILLE — Members of Pemberville Village Council passed one ordinance and gave readings to three others during their most recent meeting.

An agreement with the Pemberville Free Fair was the focus of the ordinance that passed unanimously after its third reading.

Mayor Carol Bailey previously explained there was no monetary value to thee agreement, saying the Free Fair is a community event.

“We don’t charge (the Free Fair) anything, but we must have some form of a lease with them,” Bailey said.

A second reading was given to an ordinance that, when passed, will provide an agreement with the ATSI delivery point study and construction agreement with American Municipal Power.

Village officials have worked for some time on the agreement for the construction of another power substation in the village.

First readings were given to two other ordinances, one of which makes permanent changes to the village’s appropriations for 2024, totaling $10.1 million.

The other ordinance that received its first reading will allow village officials to enter into an agreement with Columbia Gas for construction of a pipeline to power the main pump station backup generator.

The village’s new water tower was one of the focuses in Bailey’s report.

“We scheduled a groundbreaking (ceremony) for the new water tower and we will pour the foundation,” Bailey said in her report to council.

She also reported issuing a proclamation for the now-closed Eisenhour car dealership that was a staple in the village for the past 100 years.

The mayor reported attending the recent grand opening of GiGi’s Confections and More.

The next meeting of Pemberville Village Council is slated for Tuesday at 7 p.m.
