Georgetown Council examines options for electricity purchase

By Martha Jacob

During its May 12 council meeting members of the Georgetown Village Council, after suspending the three reading rule adopted a resolution for the purchase of electricity by the village.
“I’ve handed out a purchase agreement to everyone to look at,” Mayor Dale Cahall said, “There is a company that will be buying the methane gas from Rumpke Landfill and then selling it. We are currently purchasing our electricity from American Municipal Power, Inc. (AMP) of which we are a member. We have an agreement with AMP to be our power supplier. We will be paying the same as we always have, so this won’t really save us any money.”
After suspending the rules, council adopted the agreement resolution.
Mayor Cahall commented that Mayor’s Court was doing very well and showed more activity than last month. He said there were over 60 cases heard.
Council also adopted a resolution making a supplemental appropriation of $47,000 for building and other structures for the village after declaring it an emergency and suspending the rules. “This is for the purpose of fronting the money for the ‘Senior Playground,” Cahall said. “The grant we’re getting will reimburse the village.”
Village Administrator Art Owens reported to council that he plans to advertise for bids for the sidewalk replacement in the upcoming week. Bids will be opened on June 21. He also said that he had signed for the crosswalk painting which is scheduled to begin in a few weeks and will be done by A & A Safety.
Owens also told council that the street sweeping would have to be done again because the company that was hired to do it did a really bad job. The street sweeping will be done again.
Georgetown Police Chief Rob Freeland reported to council that since his last council report on April 14, his department had received 555 calls for service, 19 incident reports, 10 crash reports, 84 mayor’s court citations issued and 17 charges filed with county court.
“With the warmer weather, certain people have been taking their drinking and partying outdoors, disturbing neighbors, being disorderly and fighting,” Chief Freeland reported to council.
“Our officers have dealt with several underage drinkers causing problems, including one called in by a resident who found an underage drinker passed out in his yard.”
Freeland said that whenever possible, officers charged the individuals who provide or purchased the alcohol for those underage as well as the actual drinker.
Freeland briefly discussed other cases of domestic violence and disorderly conduct.
“Unfortunately we had another incident where a man stole his girlfriend’s truck and credit card and withdrew several hundreds of dollars then went to Cincinnati to buy heroin,” Freeland said. “Then he drove to Tennessee for an unknown reason.
“Officers Detective Matthew Staggs and Corporal Kyle Singleton intercepted the stolen truck as it entered the village on SR 125 and arrested the man.”
Freeland told council that his office had received two trauma packs that had been donated by Ripley Officer John Amole. Amole was severely injured after being assaulted while attempting to arrest a man in January. He returned to active duty about a month ago.
