Georgetown hires two new part-time officers

By Martha Jacob –

Georgetown Police Chief Rob Freeland introduced newly hired part-time officer Jesse Green at the May 26 Georgetown Village Council meeting.
Green was promptly sworn in as a Georgetown Police Officer by Mayor Dale Cahall.
“We are glad to have a new officer like Officer Green on our department,” Chief Freeland said. “He brings with him over 15 years of experience.
“He is from Clermont County where he served Lincoln Heights as its SWAT team commander and was also the Police Chief in Sardinia for a while. He is a trained EMT and firefighter. He has completed his field training with our department and is now on the job.”
Chief Freeland told council that another part-time officer, John Pullin had also been sworn into office and is in the process of completing his field training. A third officer, Brittany Stamper will soon begin her field training and will be sworn in at a later time.
In other business at the meeting, Administrator Art Owens told council that by the next meeting, June 9, he would need a resolution passed by council, which would allow him to work with the OWDA (Ohio Water Development Authority) and the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) to get a low interest loan to get the water program started.
“We’re  actually ready to start this loan process right away,” Owens said. “We will be replacing water mains on north and south Main Street, east and west State Street and a build a new water tower on the north end of town. We are not sure yet exactly where the new water tower will be located, but it will be somewhere around Stevens Avenue.”
Owens said the village owns property at that end of town, but the location is still up in the air. He said he is currently working on easements for the project.
“With the completion of this project, it will significantly reduce our water main breaks,” Owens said. “These lines are just so old that they are deteriorating. This project will help with increasing the water pressure within the village and residents will have better water flow for fire protection.”
He continued, “There are a lot of mains here in the village that just dead-end, and when this project is completed those ends will be looped, so water isn’t flowing in so many directions. We will also be creating some new master water taps with Brown County Rural Water so that we have water entering the village at more locations.”
Owens added that the State of Ohio would be paving all the way from Hamersville on Rt 68 to Rt 125 in 2017 or 2018.
Local resident Nancy Montgomery told council that she has completed the grant application for a State of Ohio Grant to purchase equipment for the village park for the enhancement of a Senior Playground. The senior facility would be to help older people dealing with issues such as mobility and balance.
The grant is for $81,000 which includes a reimburse of 75% of the cost. Montgomery said the village is very close to achieving the 25% it needs.
