Corporal Swearingen reported there were 60 calls for the month of October. Two were assigned to detectives and one has been closed. Two criminal activities took place; one at 154 Miami Avenue and one in Edinburgh Place.
Joe Bonner, President of the Edinburgh Villas Homeowners Association, stated he put out an email vote to the homeowners and they have agreed to purchase 14 hanging flower baskets on seven poles in Edinburgh Place. He will sign the contract from North Bend in December. Mayor Sammons advised Mr. Bonner we have contacted our insurance company and they would like to see Edinburgh Homeowners’ Liability Certificate.
Chief Ober reported there were 11 EMS details (none of which were heroin related) and 2 fire runs; one of which was a false alarm and one an auto accident.
He also reported that all fire hydrants in North Bend that are on the Cleves system are operational.
Mayor Sammons stated he met with ODOT to discuss with them reducing US 50 to one lane and reducing speed in the North Bend area. (This is called a "road diet"). Mayor Sammons asked Chief Ober if he thought this might help reduce accidents on US 50 in this area. He also would like to know where Chief Ober thought the best exit onto US 50 would be for a light to be installed; St. Anne’s and US 50 and Miami Avenue and US 50 were brought up. Chief Ober will collect his data and report on this at our December meeting.

They’re now promising to print them for us, hopefully in time for President William Henry Harrison’s Birthday Celebration in February.
