March 6, 2008 Minutes

Call to order: by President Jim Welch at 6:37 PM

Introduction/Attendance: There were 18 residents present (including two first time visitors.)

Shandrea Thomas with Channel 6 was already on site. Pam Clegg and Jim Welch were interviewed. Jim encouraged visitors to comment on air about water quality from Ohio American Water. Yellowing of clothes, price of water, and no improvement in water quality were among the complaints voiced. The film was to be shown on Fox Channel 28 at 10:00 PM and Channel 6 at 11:00 PM. Jim said profit margin for OAW was not what the company expected, so it is now applying for higher rates in hopes of raising the value of its stock. It already has a 14% increase and is asking for 31.68%. OAW rates for water vary depending on the areas it serves. Updates will be posted to the website. A meeting with OAW, PUCO and the public is planned for late May or June. Everyone is encouraged to help circulate petitions.

President Jim Welch asked for comments and questions from the group. Rachel Hart , a five-month resident, expressed concerns about her neighbor?’s vehicles being parked in a manner that makes it difficult to get out of her driveway and blocks a clear view of the street. She was advised by Pam Clegg that vehicles not moved in 48 hours are in violation. Pam will forward her complaint via e-mail to the police department.
On a positive note, cars have been removed from the street on Oslo and Stockholm.
Doug Dapo will speak with Kurtz Bros. concerning the odor from mulch.
