Minutes, November 26, 2018
Sgt. Raker reported that there were 36 calls for service for the month of October. Three cases were assigned to detectives. There was one theft of a gun and gun box. There was a theft at the Dollar General of several DVDs. There was an apparent overdose death, however, they are waiting for the toxicology report.
Mr. John Niehaus stated he would like to build four large homes on Shady Lane across from Aston Oaks. He’s already graded the property and would like to install the utilities in the spring. He’s asking the Village of North Bend to abandon the “paper streets” located on that parcel. Paper streets are old roads that no longer exist, however, North Bend needs to give permission and control to John Niehaus in order for him to proceed with construction. Mayor Sammons has been in contact with Dan Schoster, our engineer with JMA, and Dan is looking for this approval. Mayor Sammons asked Keith Niehaus to have his engineers comply with Dan Schoster’s requests.
Ron Hartoin, North Bend’s Street Commissioner, stated there was damage done to the road and curb on Shady Lane by John Niehaus’ equipment when he was grading the property. Keith Niehaus acknowledged that damage. Ron asked that the road, curb and any further damage done by their equipment be repaired by John and Keith Niehaus. John stated he will repair the damage, as long as it’s apparent the damage was done by their equipment.
Mayor Sammons asked about the specified parking area shown on the original plans. John Niehaus stated parking will be permitted on the new public street, and there will not be a special parking area for guests. Each home is valued between $750,000 to $800,000.
Mayor Sammons stated Scott Sollmann will draw up a memorandum and a resolution for our December 17th council meeting. The Planning Commission will meet to approve the plans.

Ron Nunnery asked council why the Fire and EMS Levy was not on the November 6th ballot. Mayor Sammons stated that our Fiscal Officer, Marta Fryman, emailed the required information to the Board of Elections in early August. They never received the email and Marty never received a “failed email” response. By the time we realized the issue, it was too late to place it on the November 6, 2018 ballot. Mayor Sammons stated we have spoken with Miami Township and they have agreed to a 3-year payment option; North Bend will pay $40,000 in 2019, $20,000 in 2020 and $20,000 in 2021 which will be paid out of the general fund. The Fire and EMS Levy will be on either the May or November, 2019 ballot. The residents’ taxes will be lower for approximately one year.
