GAMBIER — At its March meeting Monday, Gambier Village Council discussed a number of actions including seasonal events. Dumpster Days and the Earth Day Challenge were addressed, as well as, residential garbage collection, a new soccer field and the College Township/Monroe Fire Department.
Mayor Kirk Emmert advised council that the College Township/Monroe Fire Department has entered into “serious discussion” for a long-term contractual agreement with the Mount Vernon Fire Department. The proposed agreement would respond to concerns for maintaining staffing levels and responses to Monroe Township.
A regulation soccer field is in development at the site of an unused baseball diamond, Emmert said. Two baseball diamonds will remain in use. The location will need drainage landscaping followed by reseeding and the village has asked Small’s Asphalt Paving to level and seed the field.
Bayleaf Indian Bistro of Mount Vernon approached the village with a proposed lunch truck service in the village. Village council was receptive to the idea but advised Bayleaf that they wanted to explore any concerns and speak to the restaurant at another council meeting.
