The purpose of this special meeting is to discuss the incomplete issues with the Long Street/Wilson Ave and Third St. projects.  Several residents were present.


Mary said she had a list of open issues with the projects and pictures to back them up.  Mary and Diane Derringer from ME Companies had met before the meeting to review the work in person.  Tom Mayle (the contractor for Long St.) was supposed to have shown up, but he didn’t.


Diana said she had a list of open issues that she will photocopy and give to the contractor.  It was agreed that we’ve given them the benefit of the doubt for too long and they are blowing us off. 


Residents said some of the catch basins are too high.  Wondered who’s at fault there, the contractor or the engineer?  Diane said they have to go back and check.


Ed said we need to get our Solicitor involved and that the engineers need to check their plans.


Terry Prather asked about easements.  He said there were none, but told there were temporary easements.  Diane didn’t know about that.


Aaron suggested contacting the Solicitor to start legal proceedings against Tom Mayle & Son, but also that the residents start calling him and bugging him.  His phone number is 740-551-2731.


Diane went over the list of open issues.  Council and residents discussed some details of the issues and added a few more notes.


Ed made a motion to have Aaron contact our Solicitor to begin whatever legal proceedings necessary to force Tom Mayle & Sons to complete the uncompleted/inadequate work.  Roger second.  All yea.


Ed made a motion to adjourn.  Rita second.  All yea. 


Respectfully Submitted,




Aaron L. Reedy, Clerk
