Caldwell Village Council approves new parking ordinance

Written by 

Rules establish long-awaited procedures for ticketing, appeal

CALDWELL, Ohio -- Caldwell Village Council has passed a long-awaited ordinance aimed at easing the village's parking woes.

Meeting in regular session on Monday night, Council voted to waive three readings of the ordinance, meant to address parking concerns on Caldwell's Courthouse Square. It was approved unanimously. Village Solicitor Bill Ferguson told AVC News that the new ordinance also creates a clear procedure for ticketing and appeals:

The ordinance did not establish a fee structure for parking tickets, except to say that fines cannot exceed $100, or $500 for unregistered parking in a handicapped spot. AVC News is following up with the village's Clerk-Treasurer to obtain that fee schedule.

Mayor David Evans told Council that the village recently received nearly $127,000 from a mineral rights lease of 28.8 acres. Evans said that the village is now awaiting a decision regarding 88.5 acres that the village could lease.

Council voted to transfer $700,000 from a CD to a GNMA plan through Raymond James Financial Advisors. Finance Chairman Jeff Minosky said the investment will net the village an additional $17,500 per year.

Mayor Evans said that Street Department Superintendent Earl Ramage has asked to fill a vacancy on his team, which would bring Caldwell's street department to four employees. More information can be obtain at the Caldwell Municipal Building, or by contacting the Clerk-Treasurer's Office at 740.732.2053.

Caldwell Village Council will next meet in regular session on Monday, Sept. 8.
