DANVILLE — The water treatment plant in Danville is ready to go.
According to Laurie Vess, village clerk/treasurer, it was reported at Monday’s council meeting the plant is complete. Once the tank is filled to capacity, the pumps will be switched. The old pump, No. 5, will be used as a backup, and another pump, No. 6, will be sealed. The village is still under a moratorium from the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency, but officials hope to have it lifted once pump No. 7 goes completely online.
During the meeting, council also discussed the possibility of adding a farmers market in the village. Saturday afternoons or Tuesday evenings were discussed as possible days to have the summertime event.
Several council members reported they toured the Rambo Street area to check out the paving project that was recently completed, and saw no major problems. They talked about getting the street lined before school starts.
Council approved spending up to $500 for banners to be placed on poles in the village. Mayor Bob Dile will get a demo banner from a company he talked with and let council members share their thoughts.
The members also signed a letter of thanks to Genoa Township for its donation of a 2000 police cruiser. The cruiser will be painted and stickers placed on it for police officers to use.
It was also reported the village was not in the first selection group for a police grant.
Four council seats will be up for election this November, and two members have decided not to run for re-election. Seats currently occupied by Todd Didinger and Sandy Ridgway will be open, while Brad Walls and Jill Byers have expressed their willingness to run for another term.
Council adjourned to executive session to discuss personnel items. The next meeting will be Aug. 17 at 8 p.m.
