MAYOR’S OPENING STATEMENT
Mayor Sammons gave an update on the Riverfront Project. He met with Congressman Chabot asking for possible management of the Interpretive Center with federal funds. Congressman Chabot was receptive to the idea and will meet with his Chief of Staff to begin this process.
Mayor Sammons also met with the Fifth Third Bank Foundation officer and they are very interested in the historical aspect of the project. Steve Johns of Hamilton County attended both meetings. He suggested Mayor Sammons host an event where all prospective investors can learn about this wonderful project for the west side of Cincinnati.
Hamilton County awarded $7,500 to North Bend for the US 50 Road Diet, which is part of our Riverfront Project and asked Clete Benken from MKSK to design this project. This consists of narrowing Three Rivers Parkway (US 50) to two lanes and slowing traffic for the portion between the Addyston and North Bend boundary line thru to E-town in Whitewater Township. Mayor Sammons will set up another Riverfront Project Committee meeting soon.
Ron Hartoin moved that the December 19, 2016 Minutes be accepted. Ron Nunnery seconded the motion. Motion carried 100%.
The Treasurer’s Report is available at the Village office.
Our audit will take place this year for the 2015 and 2016 period. Marty Fryman has reported that 2016 has not yet been closed. The Accounting Method (OCBOA, currently used by the Village or Regulatory, an option) was discussed by Council. Retaining OCBOA, the more in depth filing method, was recommended.

To Council Members for Your Information and Review
To date I have not closed 2016. Per the UAN system North Bend filed OCBOA (Other Comprehensive Basis of Accounting) which is a more in depth filing method. I completed this filing method to be told by the Auditor that 2015’s filing was in error and North Bend was supposed to file Regulatory. This has set back the closing of 2016. Additionally, there is a new footnote process required by the State Auditor I am still working on.
As we begin 2017 we are faced with issuing our intial batch of purchase orders and blanket certificates to authorize our paying of the bills. I previously sent to Council a list of the 33 items to be approved by council tonight.
We issued 2 Purchase orders prior to year end 2016 for – Hamilton Co. Regional Planning - $270.00 for 2017 RPC fee and $250.00 for 4th quarter zoning services.
The beginning of the year is also when we transfer funds from our general fund to our various other funds to provide resources for those funds during 2017. Those resolutions will be offered to council later in this meeting.
Distributed to council members this month are the following reports:
• Monthly Cash Flow Analysis:
Showing money in/money out and the check book balance
• Payment and charge Register Report:

DEPUTY CLERK’S REPORT January 30, 2017 Marilyn Kramer
Update on Presidential Playground fitness equipment – I spoke with Steve Ellis of Recreation’s Outlet and our adult fitness equipment has shipped. He will need the weather to consistently remain at 40 or higher to install the rubber matting around the fitness equipment.
Update on 3 Miami Demolition – Rainbow Environmental was there today doing an asbestos assessment. This appointment is being paid by Hamilton County. Dave with Hamilton County assured me there is funding for this project, however, $25,000 is the cap amount.
Our Veteran Memorial walkway pavers are ready for pick-up. Rick will install them in the spring.
Our Spring Clean Up will be April 17- May 08, 2017. The cost is $380.00. We will also have a tire dumpster for one week during this time frame.
President William Henry Harrison’s Birthday Celebration is this Friday, February 3rd at 10:30 am in Council Hall. We will have coffee and donuts before our memorial walk to the tomb. I’ve been working on the program and it’ll be printed Wednesday. I’ve contacted all major TV stations to cover this event; no confirmations. I sent a notification to the Community Press with no confirmation of publication.
I’d like to ask if North Bend would want to pay for professional brochures on President Harrison to have in Council Hall and possibly have at the tomb for visitors. I’ve asked repeatedly for brochures from the Ohio History Connection and they are stating funding as the problem.
Kahny Printing has quoted: 8.5 x 11 tri-fold brochure - #100 - $129.00, #200 - $243.00 and #500 - $458.74 along with a one-time design set up fee of $90.00. This includes printing, color design and pictures.
We have set up Saturday, May 13th as our volunteer day to plant flowers for our flower boxes.
