Dalton Village Council monthly meeting Jan. 17
KEY ACTION: Council passed a motion to upsize a sewer line extension from 8 inches to 12 inches at an amount not to exceed $9,000.
Mayor Dennis Finley also told council that the project being developed by LincWay LLC project and Wayne County Children’s S.T.E.A.M. Playlab at 150 Kurzen Road N is going to pay for a force main and lift station and will donate it back to the village to make sure wastewater distribution to the sewer plant is adequate. This also will enable more development in the future, Finley noted.
Council also passed a resolution granting variance to Mars Horsecare to drill a water well so the facility will have adequate water supply quickly and can feed their own sprinkler system if need be.
In other business,
* Fiscal officer Neena Miller told council the bank balance at the end of December was $1,581,040 with $229,266 payments and receipts of $140,099.
* Finley told council the four buildings at the wastewater plant are now networked thanks to a camera system so that plant workers can monitor from their phones in case of an emergency.
* Councilman Terry Johns said motorists continue to disregard the barrels and they are using the closed median at Wenger Road and U.S. 30. Tire tracks can be seen and ODOT said vehicles seem to be driving through early in the morning. Members discussed options and a more semi-permanent solution while still allowing fire and EMS to have access to the crossover. Council had rescinded its resolution to close the median.
Finley said he would reach out to ODOT to see what options are available.
