DEPUTY CLERK REPORT APRIL 25, 2016 MARILYN KRAMER
Spring Clean Up for yard waste is going on now through May 16. Rumpke made an error and delivered the tire dumpster on April 8th. That dumpster was picked up today, 4/25.
May 10, 2016 Congressman Steve Chabot will be here in Council Hall from 9:00am – 10:00am to hear residents’ concerns.
I’ve ordered new brochures on our two presidents from the Ohio History Connection.
Our wireless connection was disabled; I contacted Cincinnati Bell and they reinstated our code, North Bend Building, however, we do have a new password. Information is in your desk.
I’ve also updated our Council phone and email sheet to reflect our new Fiscal Officer’s contact information.
Our new copier is working perfectly. I’m checking into companies that would pick up our old floor copier, a desktop printer and monitor for recycling. Rumpke charges a $75.00 transportation fee plus $0.25 per pound for e-waste.
Regarding our Veteran’s pavers, the company, Ascent, on Spring Grove Avenue stated they would engrave each brick for $15.00. We will try to sell each brick, personalized for $25.00
I’ve cleaned out and organized one closet in Council Hall. I’ll be organizing and labeling the blueprint container and other closet soon.
