Enon Village Council held an informational meeting on Tuesday, July 28. Mayor Tim Howard stated that the council did not have a quorum to conduct business with the absence of council members Jerry Crane, Elmer Beard and Rick Hanna.
Village Administrative Assistant Kristy Thome received approval from the mayor for the staff to proceed with starting a Farmer’s Market to be held each Thursday from 4 to 7 pm at Settler’s Park. According to Thome, vendors will be limited to farm produce only. No baked goods or other items will be allowed at the market. Vendors will be able to bring their own tables to set up and tents if they desire. The village insurance carrier has approved the new market for residents in the area to sell items and to enjoy buying fresh vegetables. Rite Aide is understanding and is agreeable with individuals parking at the far end of the lot. Vendors will need to set up on the green grass area of the park located south of the gazebo.
The Farmer’s Market is expected to start in early August following the National Night Out event scheduled for August 4 according to Thome.
A tentative date for the unveiling of the plaque to honor former Mayor Charles Koons is scheduled for 6:30 pm on Tuesday, August 25 prior to the regular council meeting at the water department. Additional information is expected at the next council meeting the second Tuesday of August.
Village Administrator Benjamin Ross announced that the resurfacing of Bob White and Brunswick is now completed. Patching is being planned for Nightingale Trail. The village has applied for Ohio Public Works funds to complete the water loop on Speedway Drive. Ross stated that the village would need to provide $190,000 in local funding for the project.
Mr. Ross also reminded council members present that the new e-mail system is now operational. The village has moved from a .com system to a .gov address server. The long anticipated overhead projection system has been installed and was utilized during the meeting. The council can now project the agenda and other items on the wall directly behind the council seating to allow the audience to follow along.
The council meets on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month at 7 pm at the Government Center located on Main Street.
