1. The Public Hearing was called to order by Mayor Randy Rich.

2. Randy explained that the Village is trying to get a CDAP (Community Development Assistance Program) grant to defer some of the cost of relocating the water and sewer lines. When Route 33 widens the Village water and sewer lines will conflict with the storm sewers. The Village will need to move the water and sewer lines from the north side of Route 33 to the south side. The Village already is in debt for the new Water Tower and the Water Extension. The CDAP grant will cover 75% of the cost to relocate the water and sewer lines. Randy stated that Mr. Bowersmith, from Rural Community Assistance Program (RCAP), was here to answer any questions that anyone might have.

3. Randy opened the meeting up for anyone who had questions. There were no questions asked.

4. Motion by Rick H., with a second by Sherry, to close the Public Hearing Meeting at 7:00 pm. All ayes, motion carried.

Respectfully submitted

Ladora C. Boyd
