Another approval was given to accept Bernard Petro for the empty seat on the Architectural Review Board (ARB). Petro has served as an engineer for the past 41 years, serving several Ohio cities. He is very well versed at presenting to ARB Boards.

"I've been on the other side of the fence bringing plans to the ARB," he said.

On a different matter, Councilman Sam Moffe brought up posts he has seen online and was concerned over some of the content, which he claimed was untrue. He asked if anything could be done to correct it. He also asked about the levy and what was happening with the forest board.

Forest Board member Eleanor Zedaker said a budget for the forest has been assembled and would be addressed at the next forest board meeting. She said the board will have to agree to a budget before it is submitted to council.

In other business:

Council approved a resolution accepting the amounts and rates as determined by the budget commission and authorizing the necessary tax levies and certifying them to the county auditor.

Council approved an ordinance amending ordinance number 1537-18 (permanent appropriations) and an ordinance authorizing the transfer of $600 from the Street Levy Fund to the 2018 OPWC Capital Project.
