Caldwell Village Council focused on improvement projects

Sewer separation, street improvement project upcoming

CALDWELL, Ohio -- Upcoming improvement projects were by-and-large the theme of Monday night's Caldwell Village Council meeting.

Council announced that the village's sewer separation project is moving along, as scheduled. Construction on the EPA-mandated is set to begin in June near Railroad Street, and will proceed east from there. Mayor David Evans also reported that the village's sewer plant was recently subject to an Ohio EPA inspection, which "went very well."

It was also announced on Monday night that Caldwell has received Issue 2 funding for street improvements. The funds will go towards paving six streets throughout the village. Paving will begin in the fall.

Council also voted on Monday to accept four applications for a sidewalk/curb improvement program announced last month. Under the program, the Village will reimburse homeowners for up-to four yards of paving in front of their home. Applications will continue to be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Council also heard from Joyce Young, who owns a business in downtown Caldwell, about the ongoing parking problem at the Courthouse square. Young echoed the concerns of many other business owners that a lack of parking space around the Courthouse, caused by improper parking, is hurting businesses downtown.

Under the advisement of Village Solicitor Bill Ferguson, Council also passed a records retention policy on Monday night. The policy establishes criteria for the retention and storage of the Village's official documents.
