Village administrator Rob McDonald said the fees go into a fund, which are used to pay for and maintain capital improvements.
The difference between the fees of Gambier and other municipalities has to do with different systems of infrastructure.For instance, he
said, Gambier had a new sewer plant built in 1997.
said the village has installed 41 pit meters so far this year but will take a two-week break and focus on other projects.He
is continuing to work on changing protocol on backfilling the pits by hauling away about half of the dirt unearthed.McDonald
also said he
wants to minimize the amount of disruption to residents' tree lawn areas. McDonald
said the village has problems with communication between the village water tower to a valve pit and subsequently to the village's sewer plant.
...The mayor said McDonald was able to contact the local area manager of Embarq and a new line was installed between the tower and the valve pit. McDonald
reported that he
has an estimate on a backup communication system that would take over if the village lost power or lost the communication signal.This system will keep the village's water tower from under filling and over filling.He
will present the system at the Utilities Committee
meeting in August.
said asphalt will be installed on Kokosing Drive and Scott Lane the last part of this week or the beginning of next week.
will write Rauzi a letter referencing the section of the village's zoning code that treats with screening trash dumpsters, and said he
