Aberdeen Village Council update

By Martha Jacob –

The following actions were taken by members of the Aberdeen Village Council in the last few meetings.
In the month of April this year, according to village fiscal officer Nathan Pfeffer, council discussed a bill for lights on the approach ramp on the bridge and the pending de-annexation. According to Peffer, the village is no closer to resolving the problem.
Aberdeen resident and Aberdeen Concerned Citizens President Shari Stafford,  continues in her efforts to apply for grants for park improvements.
She explained to council that the group had received funds from Scripps for playground equipment and it will be geared toward children with autism.
Funds have also been secured for a frost-free water fountain from the Hayswood Foundation. The location for the fountain will be determined by council. A security system would also be secured by the group for the park which would monitor activity. Some of the gardens in the park were removed due to difficulty in maintenance.
In other business, Mayor Jason Phillips ordered that a stone on the property of a village resident be removed.
Council also heard the first reading of a resolution amending the 2016 appropriation budget, and heard the first reading of an ordinance adopting and enacting American legal publications Ohio basic code as the code of ordinances.
 Delbert Hester, village administrator, proposed to council that an impound lot be built behind the shop due to the expense of storage. Cars have been in storage at Souders in Ripley with some bills over $40,000, but there is not a written contract. Pfeffer agreed to set a rate.
Hester also briefly discussed the cutting of the trees on Mountain Street and methods of recovery and what to replace the trees with. Hester also discussed a drainage problem on High Street and a serious problem with motorists not stopping at crosswalks. Parking on residential streets was also discussed.
Earlier this year council discussed the following items:
• Problems with the traffic light at Rt. 52 and Rt 41;
• How often the water should be tested;
• Sewer lines from River Road and how much they would be assessed;
• Aberdeen will celebrate its  bi-centennial over Fourth of July;
• Appointed  J.R. Ball as a part-time police officer
• Set the police chief salary at $32,000
• Appointed Eugene Longgo as a full-time police officer and Anthony Mountjoy as a part-time officer.
