BEVERLY-Spring Hills subdivision was once again the subject of discussion at Wednesday's council meeting for the village of Beverly.
R&G Development of Belpre will make a presentation about the infrastructure repairs it will complete at Spring Hills subdivision to council members and the Board of Public Affairs at a special council meeting Oct. 17 at 6:30 p.m. .
"At the end of that meeting, (I'd like) a vote or letter or some way to express our agreement that what R&G Development is doing is OK, and that if they do all those things we will accept Spring Hills into the village for water, sewer and roads," said Beverly Mayor Rex Kenyon.
Richard Waugh, funding specialist with ADR & Associates, reported that bidding can now be opened for the village's waterline project. Advertising for bids will be done the weeks of Oct. 22 and 29, pre-bids will be the week of Nov. 5 and bids will open the week of Nov. 12.
Waugh estimated work on the waterline project would start before spring 2013.
"They work through the winter," he added.
James Ullman, council member and chairman of the Swimming Pool Committee, reported that estimates will be done for repairs needed for next year's pool season. Needed repairs include repainting the bottom of the pool and repair of the pool's chemical pump.
Pool passes for the 2013 season will be advertised earlier than last season, Ullman said.
"We feel...we can get more participation with a longer advertising period," he added.
Professional Pool Management will manage the village pool for the 2013 season for a management fee of $5,000, after a motion passed by Beverly council members.
Jay Arnold, council member and chairman of the Streets, Alleys and Sidewalks Committee, reported that a crosswalk sign reminding drivers that the law requires them to slow down in a school zone area is in place on Ohio 60 near Fort Frye High School.
"It's been successful in the speed of drivers coming through that area, especially during school hours," he said.
