THREE RIVERS’ SCHOOL
Finance - Mr. Moorman
Dave Moorman contacted Hamilton County Auditor’s Office to inquire about special assessments on resident’s real estate tax bill regarding waste removal. Our contract with Miami Township expires December, 2018. We have a couple of potential options. We could continue our participation with Miami Township. We could add the waste removal fees to residents’ Cleves water bill; however, it was noted that some residents on Three Rivers Parkway use Addyston water. We could have each resident pay for their own waste removal. We could contract with a company independently for North Bend residents. Dave Moorman will contact Rumpke, Bavarian and other companies to obtain pricing. Mayor Sammons prefers to keep the charges on the real estate tax bill or utility bill as residents are accustomed to this arrangement. He would like our residents to provide the Village with their feedback on which option they’d prefer. We may send out emails or mail flyers to residents to receive their feedback. The Auditor said we would need to pass a resolution by September, 2018 for the waste removal issue to be placed on the property tax bill. The Auditor’s office would charge a 3% fee.

To Council Members for Your Information and Review
We received the requested advance on our 2nd half real estate tax revenue of $144,000 ($112,000 for GF and $32,000 for Fire/EMS Levy). I will forward the EMS funds to Miami Township when we receive the total revenue for the year.
The OML sent us a report that we may receive an estimated additional $7k revenue from the State Local Government Fund due to recent approved legislation, Am. Sub HB 49, which provided an additional $24 million over 2 years to all Ohio townships and villages with a population under 1000.
We issued no purchase orders this month.

MAINTENANCE REPORT August 21, 2017 Rick Schultz
Finished installation of window catch basins at the end of St. Annes. Added soil to grade and seeded and strawed. I believe this will solve the runoff of storm water into the resident’s yards.
Installed brick walkway from sidewalk to gazebo.
Continued repairs and update lights on Christmas decorations.
DEPUTY CLERK’S REPORT August 21, 2017 Marilyn Kramer
I have an updated copy of our Revised Code of Ordinances for each council member.
Fran and I (with the help of Clete Benken of MKSK) submitted a proposal to the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers on August 9th. This proposal, if approved, will award North Bend a feasibility study for our Riverfront Project property.
I attended two meetings on August 1 at Hamilton County Planning and Development. One meeting was a workshop for the HC CDBG Community and Economic Development Assistance Program. I submitted a pre-application and our Riverfront Project is eligible for this program grant. The full application is due September 30. The second meeting was mandatory for all participating communities regarding CDBG grants. (Please see the attached agenda of that meeting).
We will have two additional estimates given for trimming trees on President Harrison’s burial site. We’ll then have a meeting with the Ohio History Connection (State of Ohio) for approval.
The next INEOS meeting is Thursday, August 31 at 5:00pm at the Addyston Municipal Building.
