Minutes, February 26, 2018
Mayor Sammons welcomed Sgt. Raker back. Sgt. Raker reported there were 43 calls for the month of January. One case was assigned to detectives. There were two criminal incidents; one at 154 Miami for heroin overdose and one at 7 W. Harrison for theft. There was an overdose death at 8 Washington Avenue. This was a visitor to North Bend.
Fran Romweber stated that consideration should be given to placing a traffic light at the corner of US 50 and Miami Avenue. This is a dangerous intersection as trucks and cars pull out to the middle section, waiting for traffic to clear. Is it possible to remove the cement stations in the road for better access? Sgt. Raker will investigate the matter.
Ms. Devon Lambing and Ms. Lily Henkel, seniors at Taylor High School, spoke to council regarding tobacco prevention in the Three Rivers area. Ms. Dominique Walker with Hamilton County Public Health and Ms. Christi Valentini-Lackner with PreventionFIRST also attended. HCPH has partnered with PreventionFIRST for the tobacco-free initiatives. The Ohio Department of Health awarded a grant to Taylor High School for this tobacco prevention project. They advised council on how they intend to reduce tobacco use among Three Rivers’ students. Mayor Sammons asked the Taylor High School students to return to council later in the year to report their findings back to council.
Chief Ober reported there were 13 EMS details for the month of January, two of which were drug overdoses. There were two fire runs; one automobile that caught on fire and one incident where an automobile went over an embankment.
Mayor Sammons asked about flooding in North Bend. Chief Ober stated that the North Bend Boat Club and property further west on US 50 suffered flooding, however, no residents have been displaced. FEMA assistance is being investigated.
THREE RIVERS SCHOOL
Finance - Mr. Moorman
Dave Moorman gave an update on the residential waste collection. Dave asked council members to review the Request for Quote and give feedback by March 20, 2018. Council will vote at our March 26, 2018 council meeting to issue the Request for Quote, and be ready to vote to award a contract to one waste company by June 18, 2018.
Light, Water and Sewer - Ms. Smith
Shirley Smith will attend the next water conservation meeting and report back at our next council meeting.

Mayor Sammons stated he is having a pool built on his property and will be going through the same process as any resident in North Bend.
Law & Ordinance - Mr. Bonner
Joe Bonner stated that he is researching how other municipalities handle residential rental permitting.
Beautification – Fran Romweber
Our Wellness Committee will meet on Saturday, March 10 at 9:30am in Council Hall.
Fran mentioned that she would like to see a litter clean-up day in North Bend during our annual spring clean-up for yard waste.
Fran attended the Hamilton County’s Mitigation Plan Workshop on February 9th. She listed issues that specifically pertain to North Bend, which are flooding, landslides and potential dead tree debris. FEMA is more likely to compensate the village when these special causes are listed within our mitigation plan, if a catastrophe took place in North Bend.
Fran discussed using the total allotment of $3,000 previously planned to landscape both corners of US 50 and St. Annes, to utilizing it on the east side only. The property on the west side is unconducive to landscaping and we have already obtained a Permissive Use Agreement for the property on the east corner.
COUNCIL’S OLD BUSINESS
LAW DIRECTOR’S OLD BUSINESS
Scott Sollmann discussed North Bend’s right-of-way permitting. At this time North Bend does not have a plan in place and Hamilton County does not issue permits for right-of-ways. Mayor Sammons suggested charging a flat fee for a 90-day duration period. Scott will present a resolution at our March council meeting with a blanket permit, having a $1,000 flat fee and a 90-day duration limit for work to be completed. All companies are required to restore the property back to the original condition. Public Utility companies would be exempt.

DEPUTY CLERK’S REPORT February 26, 2018 Marilyn Kramer
- President William Henry Harrison’s Birthday Tribute went smoothly and was well attended. Our Facebook page has been updated with pictures and our article on this event was published in the Cincinnati Enquirer.
- The Residential Recycling Incentive application was submitted February 12, 2018.
We joined this program sponsored by Hamilton County in July, 2017, so the numbers
submitted were only for a 6-month period. Our spring clean-up and tire recycling took place in spring, 2017, so we will not get credit for those recycling events.
- The Ohio Department of Commerce, Bureau of Operations & Maintenance – Boilers, inspected our boiler and it passed. This is an annual inspection. We display our Certificate of Operation in the boiler room.
- I’ve organized the storage closet with Rick’s help. All historical ledgers are now stored in the cabinets in council hall. The blueprints will be labeled and stored in the closet. All of the Fiscal Officer’s and Deputy Clerk’s paperwork is stored in the closet by year. We are at capacity, so I contacted the Ohio History Connection regarding their Records Retention Schedule and she stated that our Records Commission would need to formally approve how we want to handle disposing of paperwork. We would need to fill out form RC-2 and have the State Auditor and the Ohio History Connection approve it. After we adopt a system, we should have ample storage for years to come. I have a copy of the Records Retention Schedule from the Ohio History Connection.
- Regarding the tree between the Council Hall building and the park, did we decide to trim the tree or have it cut down?
- Joe and Bill have been confirmed for the Newly Elected Council Training Series on March 3 at the Marriott Northeast in Mason, Ohio.
- Today we have Ms. Devon Lamding, a senior from Taylor High School, speaking with us about tobacco prevention in the Three Rivers area. Ms. Dominique Walker with Hamilton County Public Health and Ms. Christi Valentini-Lackner are here as well.
