FREDERICKTOWN — Little agenda was on tap for Fredericktown Village Council when it met Monday evening at the Fredericktown Municipal Building.
Council unanimously approved the appointment of Kris Dalton as a delegate to the Regional Income Tax Agency Board. Dalton will attend various board meetings representing Fredericktown.
Fredericktown Mayor Roger Reed announced the state auditor’s office has begun its routine two-year financial audit of the village. It began Aug. 30 and should last about two weeks with the audit report expected to be delivered around Oct. 15.
Reed shared a copy of the village budget from Knox County Auditor Jonette Curry. He stated that council must review and submit the budget back to the county office by Oct. 1.
Word was shared from village administrator Gary Gallogly that the Oswalt property has been cleaned up after letters were sent out requesting it be cleaned. But another residence on Erie Street reportedly needs cleaned as well. Gallogly stated he will look into the matter and send a letter if necessary.
Reed announced the Ohio Department of Transportation wants to purchase land from the village for an easement to allow for widening of a bridge on Ohio 95. Council will soon be addressing this issue.
Finally, council set Saturday, Oct. 30 as Trick-or-Treat Night, wishing to keep it the same night as Mount Vernon.
Council will next meet at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 20, at the municipal building.
