It's been a while since I updated this. I work construction so this is a very busy time for me and it's been busy in the Village as well. It's been a busy, busy, busy summer and yes, kids...it's ending and school will be back in a few days! So, drivers...watch your speed! We got a lot done this summer, the streets were paved, the parking lot was re-paved, two Phases of sidewalks were put in, and hoping to get the third phase in that runs down Main Street by the middle of September. That will complete the sidewalks that will safely get the children back and forth to school. The "walkers" have been very excited about all the sidewalks because it makes for a much easier walk and safer, too. The Go-Kart Races was a big success. The Subway has opened in town and if you haven't been in there, it's very, very nice!! And the Subs are delicious as well ;) We hired another Police Officer, Officer Kevin Kelly and we hired a replacement Part Time Plant Operator, Burt Cline.

Congratulations go out to all of our Graduates, whether they are graduating from Pre-K, Elementary, Middle School, High School or College, it is a momentous and proud event in their lives and their families. Good work kids, you are our future.
Our road projects were very successful, hopefully it didn't cause too much inconvenience. First Street was widened to allow easier manueverability for the Fire Department as they leave the Station. Grove Run Road and W. Scioto Street was milled and repaved. As W. Scioto was being milled, it was realized that less needed to be removed and repaved which resulted in a credit. So, we took that credit and applied it to the Post Office "triangle". That area was in desperate need of repairs, huge holes resulting in an uneven and unsafe walking surface. It was milled and repaved and new curbs put in. Because it was such an unusual shape, it was striped and parking bumpers were placed. The sidewalk contract will commence after Memorial Day.
As you celebrate the Memorial Day weekend, take a moment and remember why we have Memorial Day and remember those Veterans who gave the ultimate to protect us. Have a safe holiday!
