Caldwell Village Council faced light agenda Monday

Parking improvements, new hires on the docket

CALDWELL, Ohio -- Caldwell Village Council is taking steps to ease parking issues around the Courthouse Square.

During Monday night's meeting, Mayor David Evans announced that crews will be making repairs to the streets surrounding the Courthouse in downtown Caldwell, and that newly-painted parking spots will create more space for vehicles on the Square. Council President Troy Nething also told AVC News that a piece of legislation is in the works that would create a Mayor's Court for the purpose of hearing challenges to parking citations. That ordinance is expected to move forward at next month's meeting.

At the Mayor's suggestion, Council also approved the hiring of a Flood Plan Manager for the Village. Mayor Evans said that Chasity Schmelzenbach was a logical choice for the position. As director of Noble County's Emergency Management Agency, Schmelzenbach already serves as Flood Plan Manager for several other townships and villages in the area.

And Council approved a $2,000 appropriation for testing of the village's water system. Mayor Evans said that a local resident reported to the state that the village might not be able to supply water to the Noble Correctional Institute in light of the new developments on State Route 78. Mayor Evans said that, while there is no concern of a water shortage, the village must submit results to that effect to the state. W.E. Quicksall & Associates will complete the review of the village's water system.
