Cristie Carlson, Hamilton County Public Health and Christi Valentini-Lackner, Prevention FIRST, talked about youth tobacco prevention and how they are working with students from Three Rivers School. Twelve seniors from TRS put together a "Stand Team" and their goals are: 1) to talk to youth about tobacco; 2) Develop ways to stand up and speak out against big tobacco; 3) have real-world learning opportunities around civic engagement and local government. A tobacco free community includes no cigarettes, cigarillos, cigars, hookah, e-cigarettes/vaporizers and smokeless tobacco. Students from TRS were on spring break, however, they would like to come to our Council meetings in the fall to speak to North Bend’s Council for support of their tobacco-free policies.
Chief Ober reported there were three EMS details and six fire runs for the month of March.

DEPUTY CLERK’S REPORT April 24, 2017 Marilyn Kramer
- Demolition at 3 Miami has been completed. Allgeier and Son did an excellent job.
Before and after pictures were taken and sent along with required paperwork to Hamilton County for direct payment to Allgeier & Son.
- Rick and I met with Steve Ellis of Recreations Outlet today to verify the placement of the adult fitness equipment and rubber flooring. This project should be completed in May.
- Our Spring Clean Up is now going on through May 8. This dumpster is for yard waste only. We will have another dumpster delivered May 1-8, specifically for tires.
- We have a signed Permissive Use Agreement with the owner of the parcel of land on the east side of US 50 and St. Annes. We can now landscape that area.
- Pastor Beth Anne Crego is being transferred to the Westwood Methodist Church. We wish her the best in her future endeavors and we welcome Pastor Dawn Trapp to North Bend. The transition will take place in mid-May.
- The furniture and debris located at a residence on Washington Avenue has been removed. After speaking with the owners of the property, I had a local company
remove the miscellaneous items. The owners have paid for this service.
- Regarding the Riverfront Project, I have been in contact with Mr. Brandon Brummet of the Army Corp of Engineers and have asked Clete Benken, MKSK, to join in the efforts of writing a proposal for them which is due August 9, 2017. This proposal is not for grant monies, but for Congress to establish "authority" for this project. The next step would be to ask for funding.
- I have updated our Code of Ordinances and the Employee Manual to reflect the recent resolutions that were passed. Once Scott approves these changes, I’ll have an updated copy on your desk at our May meeting.
