  • First Reading of Resolution No. 2022-29, entitled “An Emergency Resolution Authorizing and Directing the Mayor to file an application with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources for financial assistance with public recreation areas through the State of Ohio Natureworks Grant Program.”  Introduced by Mayor Bodnar.

Council President Schutt stated, my understanding is that this emergency Resolution was added to the Special Meeting Agenda because there is a deadline approaching for the Natureworks Grant Program.  Mr. McAvinew, do you have anything to add to that?

Mr. McAvinew stated, the application process has changed.  It used to be that a letter from the Finance Director was sufficient to submit the application and the resolution came after.  Looking at in June, I realized they flipped that around.  It does not commit the Village to enter into an agreement with the State of Ohio, but it does say that we support this grant application.  Once we potentially receive an offer letter for the grant, we can decide based upon the funds that are presented to us.  So basically, the project will be around $300,000 and the grant could be around $150,000 and then we would go to Land and Water Conservation in November to fund 50% of that.  But if they come back and say they will give us $20,000, it doesn’t commit us to take the $20,000.  In the future we could reapply in the hopes that it is a little higher in the future.  This is for the renovation of Wiley Park which would include an updated pavilion, bathrooms, bocce and volleyball courts; a place you can rent for families to go or class reunions, and things like that. The grill’s out.  It will be usable to the general public.  Also, there are a lot of ADA issues which need to be addressed.

Mr. Meyers asked, how much money is available to that grant?

Mr. McAvinew replied, generally Natureworks grants up to 80% of the project with a maximum of $150,000.  Land and Water is a Federal grant and Natureworks is a State grant.  They fund each other.  In reality, it’s better off getting Land and Water first.  But we have a timeline issue with the State for the grant this time only.  So, if it doesn’t go through it’s not the end of the world because we can apply in November with Land and Water.

Mr. Meyers stated, thank you.

Council President Schutt asked, are there any other questions?

There were none.

Council President Schutt stated, thank you, Mr. McAvinew.

Council President Schutt stated, the following four emergency Ordinances are for easements that are needed prior to work beginning on the Worton Park Culvert Replacement Project.  Ms. Calta or Mr. Cappello, do you have any comments or additional information you would like to provide?

Mr. Cappello stated, if anyone has any questions, these are channel easements.  There are also two temporary easements.  One of them is for access during construction across Mr. Marston’s property and the Mackey property for construction of the culvert.

Council President Schutt stated, thank you Mr. Cappello.  Ms. Calta, do you have anything you would like to add?

Ms. Calta replied, other than that Tom did a lot of legwork, so kudos go his way.  Also, did Susan Jerome help you?

Mr. Cappello replied, she did the notary work and Diane worked hard also with us.

Ms. Calta stated, and thanks to the residents as well. They were very cooperative and helpful.

Council President Schutt stated, thank you for your work on this.
