Byesville Council Denies Closing Alley

Written by


Council also updated on various projects
BYESVILLE,Ohio--On the final day of November, the Byesville Village Council made short work of a light agenda.
Village Administrator Brennan Dudley updated council on a number of projects.   The 9th Street waterline replacement project is underway.  However, due to a number of waterline breaks and other priority matters, the project has been slowed, and is thus far, about 35% complete.
Dudley reported that he recently attended a Safe Route to Schools workshop.   He says he would like to pursue the grant early next year.   Dudley attended t a recent Rolling Hills School Board meeting and informed the board of the project, with the district pledging their support.   
The Village Administrator also reported the village received a check for $1,912 from AEP for the village's participation in a demand response program.   The electric company pays the village for their cooperation in dropping "off grid" in times of high electrical demands.   While they have not yet actually "dropped off grid" the village could, by using their own power generators for a short period of time.
After some discussion, council voted 3 to 2 to not close an alley between 5th and 6th Streets and Euclid Ave.   According to council members, part of the debate on the matter boiled down to a neighborhood dispute.   One that council members felt they should not be a part of.   The matter has been a topic of discussion and public meeting for several months.   With the ordinance failing to be approved, the alley will remain as it has.    It also remains open for emergency vehicles and utility work as needed.
It was reported that two new tornado sirens have been erected, and some testing has been taking place.   The new sirens are located near the village sewer treatment plant, and adjacent to Greenwood Cemetery.   Officials say eventually, they will be tied into the fire siren at Village Hall.    More information is forthcoming. 
Councilman William Albright led a brief discussion concerning a tree located on South  4th Street.    The tree, on private property, has become a increasing safety concern, as it hangs over the road.   The property owner cannot fund renovation, so the village is looking at bids to remove the limb or the tree, as necessary. 
Due to the upcoming Christmas holiday, Byesville Council is changing the dates of their December meetings.   The next meeting will be December 9, with Finance Committee meeting at 5 pm, and council to follow at 5:30 pm.   The final council meeting of the year will be December 16, at 5:30 pm.
