November 12, 2019

The Ordinance approving the election of a Charter Commission is set
for the third reading and approval at the Council meeting November 18.
Officially then, I am announcing that we will have a Charter
information public meeting at 7:00 PM the following night, November
19. The meeting will be held in the Village Council Chambers at 10
West Scioto Street.

Although there may be some level of community interest in forming a
charter, the reality is that this meeting is being promoted in order
to solicit members for the commission. No actions will be taken. No
selections will be made. No laws will be passed, etc, etc.

Individuals have to file for office using Board of Election Form 3-P.
There is a $35 filing fee.

Commission members will be elected by ballot at the Primary Election
on March 17, 2020.

The Commission will probably meet twice per month starting in April.
Days/dates/times TBD. Attendance is not arbitrary.

The Commission has one year to complete the work of presenting a
proposed Charter to be accepted by Village residents.

After the November 18th meeting, I will start sending information to
the persons who by that time are committed to the process.

Any questions you have for me will be answered TO ALL unless it is
indicated as private.

  • Solicitation in the Village

    ****ALL APPROVED Solicitor’s in the VOCP will have a permit issued by the village office with the Mayor’s approval.****

    The Mayor requires anyone interested in soliciting in the village to provide drivers license and federal background checks on all personnel that will be in the village before he approves any application.  He also can restrict them to the times and days they are allowed to solicit.   If a solicitor approaches your residence, they should be able to provide you with a copy of the approved permit.
