Published in The Free Press Standard April 21, 28 and May 5, 2016.

Evans accused Lambert of giving her ratings of ‘2’ while all other employees received ratings of ‘5’ during their evaluations. Lambert said she has never done an evaluation of Evans. Evans said she had a letter signed by Lambert and Lambert asked her to produce it. The letter was not produced during the meeting.

“The village has never appreciated her. She had to buy her own printer, chair, desk, everything,” said Evans’ husband Ken.

Referring to Evans not always having a report to give council, as she did not that evening, council woman Eunice Thompson questioned why she would want to come to the meeting if she had no report to give.

Upon questioning of council members, Lambert admitted she had asked Giroux to prepare the ordinance stating Evans does not have to come to meetings anymore. Council member Tom Holmes admitted he had spoken on the phone to Giroux about the matter and agreed that Evans shouldn’t come if she didn’t have to.

Council member Kathy Ritter also said that Giroux discussed the matter with her but agreed because she thought it would make it easier on Evans. “I just thought it was a matter of efficiency, of saving her time,” said Ritter.

“The money wasn’t an issue,” said Lambert.

The ordinance was passed as an emergency measure unanimously by council members.

Moving on, Lambert announced that she had received letters from Attorney General Mike DeWine’s office stating that the audit findings for $13,905 from James Bates has been resolved. The matter of $867 owed by James Cinson was also stated as resolved from DeWine’s office.

As for current fiscal officer Pat Galbraith, the matter of $1,331 and $465 from audit findings has been resolved. And former clerk, Nancy Yeager’s findings for $402 and $12,574 have also been resolved.

“From the previous audit, all of this has been taken care of,” said Lambert.

Following clarification by Village Solicitor Vince Slabaugh, council approved an ordinance that permits the village to enter into a unitization agreement for horizontal wells through the Clinton Sandstone.

Slabaugh explained that the village already has a lease agreement that permits vertical drilling on the leased acres. Slabaugh said it was in the best interest of the village to sign the unitization agreement because the drilling would take place anyway. This does not permit drilling into the Marcellus or Utica shale.

Council discussed the merits of an ordinance that was prepared by Slabaugh and also one that was prepared by Giroux that specifies Charles W. Caldwell III will be paid for six hours a week at $38.46 per hour.

It was unclear why both village officials prepared an ordinance for the same issue. Council agreed that any work over six hours per week must be verified and approved in writing before payment is issued. This ordinance was read as an emergency measure.

This agreement with Caldwell, who is the licensed water plant operator for the village, is retroactive until Jan. 26, 2016.

Council member Bob DeLong reported that applicants for seasonal help for the village had been narrowed down to three people. Those three people were asked to come to village hall last Tuesday for interviews, however only one applicant showed up. Council passed an ordinance hiring Shawn Strock for 20 hours per week at $8.50 per hour. He will work through Nov. 1.

In other business, council:

– AGREED to host a village wide garage sale day on Saturday, July 30 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Residents may set up garage sales at their homes or at the village park near the stage area or under the pavilion.

– WILL hold a village wide spring clean up day on Saturday, May 14 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Dumpsters will be available at the park and the village will pick up items on curbs from residents.

– HEARD the mayor say that she will be shredding old records several Saturday’s in May and a few in June and would appreciate council members help.

– LEARNED that grants are being prepared by Giroux for paving, to purchase a hot box for paving, and for a fire alarm system.

– REMINDED residents that dogs are not permitted to run loose in the park, must be on a leash, and owners must pick up after their dogs.

– WILL erect signs that state no over night parking of semi trucks is allowed in the park.

– REMINDED parents that young children or teens walking on top of the picnic tables is considered vandalism and will not be tolerated.

– WILL hold a park board meeting at the park on Thursday, April 28 at 7 p.m.
