Grantsville town council met in the Calhoun Courthouse little courtroom on Monday at 7 p.m.

Thomas Aman, the town’s bond attorney, was present to submit several resolutions concerning the sewer project, which were approved by council.

Included were a proposed supplemental resolution providing for issuance of Sewer Revenue Bonds, Series 2009 A, and Sewer Revenue Bonds, Series 2009 B; draw resolution for the payment of invoices from the bonds; and sweep resolution pertaining to the automatic payment of bonds to Municipal Bond Commission.

Council approved the appointment of Nick Wood to the sanitation board.

Dan Ferrell of Thrasher Engineering was present to answer questions on the sewer project.

He announced that a public meeting will be held Tuesday, Nov. 17, 10 a.m., in the little courtroom for contractors, inspectors, attorneys, mayor, and council.

According to Ferrell, construction is ready to begin. He informed the council that only a handful of municipalities have received the grant the town has obtained; therefore, Grantsville is fortunate.

Council members thanked him and Tim Meeks of Mid-Ohio Valley Regional Council for the labor and effort they have put forth for the town.

Terry Harris reported that the Grantsville town improvement committee is planning the second annual “Light Up Night” on Friday, Dec. 4, the same night as the parade and Hometown Country Christmas. Harris has prepared letters for local businesses to request their participation.

The town’s Christmas lights will go up the week before Thanksgiving.

During the citizens’ open forum:

--Katheryn Kerby made the following complaints: dogs running loose, need for the removal of dead river rats and opossum, and the repainting of handicap parking places.

--Helen Jordan said that the display of pumpkins by the scouts was a great addition to the town.

--Loretta Stevens donated flood lights for the flags in the traffic island on Rt. 16.

--Helen Morris thanked the block party committee for a wonderful event.

Council members and mayor Gary Knight agreed that the block party was wonderfully planned.

“Thanks to everyone for a job well done. Thanks for all the effort, energy, and donations that went into planning the night,” said Knight.

The following Grantsville Police Dept. law enforcement report was given for October: 53 calls for service; 41 citizen contacts; 3 criminal investigations opened; 2 traffic crash investigations; 1 parking citation; 3 warnings for traffic stops; 4 citations for traffic stops; 2 K-9 calls for service; and 3 arrests: possession of controlled substance, attempting to operate clandestine laboratory (assisted State Police); and possession of alcohol by person under 21 years of age.

Chief Charles Stephens participated on the Halloween block party committee.

Municipal court judge Jacob McCumbers gave no report for October.

After approving a motion to pay bills, council adjourned at 7:55 p.m. The next regular council meeting will be held on Monday, Dec. 7, at 7 p.m.
