The May 2 Quincy Village Council meeting was opened with an invitation to join in with a Pledge of Allegiance to the American flag and reciting of The Lord’s Prayer.
Kathy Williams was present to obtain information concerning the placement of a manufactured mobile home at the corner of Jefferson Street and Miami Street. Council reviewed the pictures and information of the brand new trailer. Mrs. Williams was advised to contact Zoning Officer Jamie Stevenson regarding zoning rules and regulation for placement of a trailer and review the location of utility lines located on the property.
Dana Booghier and Ken Etherinton were present for the meeting representing the Logan County Building inspection Authority.
Both gentlemen explained how the inspection process worked and stated that the Village could join the residential program or the commercial program or both. Only structural changes to existing property or new construction would be involved in the program.
Plumbing was not a part of this inspection program. When doing an inspection for a permit only the item being permitted would be reviewed. If the Village of Quincy Council feels that the program is not working for the Village it can be opt out at any time. It will take thirty to forty-five days to start the program after a decision is made to join. County issued building permits would take approximately seven to ten days from the time of application.
There will be no cost to the Village of Quincy and fees for building permits are placed in the General Fund of Logan County.
Millard Shaffer has agreed to be in charge of the annual Village of Quincy Yard Sales. Council determined that the sales will be held June 10, 2017 from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. for the Village but residents can run their sales before or after those hours. New yard sale signs are being purchased and the cost will remain $5.00 per sign. This fee pays for the signs and helps with advertising the sales. Further information will be available at the next Council meeting.
The Council discussed activity at the Finfrock Park. Issues are happening with new barricades being placed to prevent pedestrian and auto traffic problems. Patrons of the Park are ask to abide by the placement of traffic barricades. Parking on the grassy areas of the soccer field is not permitted and those not abiding this rule will be ask to move off the grass or remove themselves from the park.
The soccer field is used by children and being mowed. Parking vehicles in this area causes ruts in the field which can result in accidents when soccer is being played and damage to equipment when mowing.
Patrolling of Village of Quincy streets was then discussed. Issues with liter vehicles that are unlicensed, not moved or derivable, or outdoor storage of historical vehicles are not permitted by way of ordinance and Ohio Revised Code. Property owners will be notified.
Autos will be towed at the owners expense if residents do not comply after being warned. This prevents growth of weeds, rodent housing, and insect and mosquito problems.
