Chillicothe Council passes 6 items; hears update from Safety Services

Chillicothe Council passed 6 agenda items at its regular session, Monday.

All ordinances were passed after members waived the three-read rule and included: accepting $17,613.43 in insurance reimbursement for a totaled utility truck; appropriating $1,400 in funds for automatic door openers at the Transit lobby restrooms; appropriating $2,667.46 for a wireless router for the Transit Department; appropriating expenses not included in the 2021 budget; appropriating $7,300 to cover costs associated with the city's participation in the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission Intern program.

Members also voted to allow the mayor to enter into an agreement with the Walter H. Drane Company to update the Codified Ordinances.

A second reading of an ordinance that would appropriate $20,091.34 from the HUD Housing Revolving Loan Fund to use toward funding a CHIP Grant Owner Rehabilitation Project will move on to a final reading at the next council session.

Additionally, Council heard from Safety Service Director Jeff Carman, who reminded residents to have their large-item pick-up items ready for Monday, May 31st.

"If they don't get picked up on that Monday or that Tuesday, please leave them out," said Carman. "We'll be in areas all week long."

Carman also said that the city pool will open at noon on June 2nd.
