Dave Burtch extended an invitation to the Paulding Chamber Downtown Revitalization Committee meeting on August 24, 2017 @ 8:00 a.m.

 

Barb Rife reported on the Street Committee meeting held on August 14, 2017.  The following items were discussed:

 

1)      Dave Burtch representing the Paulding Chamber requested the replacement of sign cables over the roadway at the corner of Perry Street and Main Street.  The lower cable is still intact but the upper cable needs to be repaired.  The sign cables at the corner of Williams Street and Perry Street also need repaired.  Mr. Burtch will contact ODOT to get approval since it crosses their roadway.  Mr. Burtch will also solicit volunteer companies to repair the cables.

2)      Richard Kipp from the Branch Christian Fellowship Church was in attendance.  He came to the meeting to discuss the one-way alley adjacent to the North side of his property.  He would like to change the one-way alley to the other direction going
West to East to accommodate handicap visitors to the Church.  A new elevator has been installed in which visitors must use the alley entrance to access the church.  The committee walked through the alley to evaluate the situation.  There is one apartment which uses the alley.  Making the alley the other direction may make it difficult to turn into their garage.  The committee felt that they should allow the alley be both directions.  The property owners to the North side of alley should be informed of potential changes.  Barb Rife also notified Police Chief, Randy Crawford of potential change.  He had no objection to the change.  He did suggest placing signage at the West end of alley to caution drivers of a pedestrian cross walk.  It is the recommendation of the Street Committee to allow to be a two-way throughway.

 

Randy Daeger approved the Street Committee’s report, seconded by Dan Workman.

Vote:  all yea.

 

Ryan Mapes reported on the Utility Committee meeting held on August 14, 2017.  Amy Hoffman from Palmer Energy Company presented information on energy aggregation.  Local communities are allowing to buy electricity as a group and they negotiate the terms and the price of the electric supplier.  Another Utility Committee will be scheduled to discuss additional information.
