In other news:
Administrator Dawn Fitzcharles reported to council the village’s credit rating with AMP Ohio has improved once again. The village scored an 88 percent for 2015 (the most recent year available). That is up from 44 percent in 2014 and 17 percent in 2013.
The improved rating will mean lower interest rates for any power-related bond the village seeks.
The council approved the purchase of a V-box to hold road salt in the community’s recently acquired truck. The village paid $20,000 for the 2008 model. That was a savings of $60,000 over a new truck.
The council will meet with department heads at 6 p.m. Dec. 14 to discuss the 2017 budget. That meeting will be following by an informal business meeting between council and other local government representatives. No action will be taken.
The next regular council meeting will be 7 p.m. Dec. 21.
