- Breakfast with Santa was a huge success. Every child received a toy from Santa and we raffled off 4 bicycles.
- I met with Michael Boyd of PEP (Public Entities Pool of Ohio), Loss Prevention. He was very impressed with North Bend. We have our boiler inspected annually, all fire extinguishers are updated. Rick already changed out the Stop signs with reflective signs.
He checked our playground and the barn and gave us a passing grade with one recommendation; the tree by Council Hall must be trimmed or cut down.
- Beautification Committee meeting will be Saturday, January 13, 2018 at 9:30am.
- The Ohio History Connection stated the tree trimming bid for clearing the tomb site property must be included in next year’s (July, 2018) allocation. There is not enough money in this year’s budget to take care of it.

- I attended a webinar for the Hamilton County Mitigation Planning process on Friday and a meeting requiring my attendance will be planned in January/February, 2018.
- Cleves Water Works contract is due December 31, 2017 – It was not listed in our tickler file because it was a 20-year contract. After Scott’s review, Cleves agreed to make a few changes and the new contract should be signed tonight.
- I found 7 of the 13 M1-Garand Ceremonial Rifles. The VFW in Fairfield had them and gave them to the VFW in Harrison, Ohio. The Army Department of Defense is in contact with them regarding those rifles.
- The handles for the adult fitness equipment should be shipped this week. There is no cost to the Village.
- We did have a request for a copy of our Police Contract. After verifying with Scott,
I released a copy to the recipient as it is part of public record.
- We had a rooster complaint in the village and after one letter was sent, we had
an officer visit the home and the rooster was removed. The homeowner was trying
to comply with our noise ordinance, however, couldn’t find anyone to take the rooster.
