Neighborhood Update

At the May regular monthly meeting, City Attorney Doug Farnsley reported that he had not been informed of any further action taken regarding the Glenview Park development. However, since that meeting Attorney Steve Porter advises that Canfield has submitted a new plan to the Planning Commission slightly increasing the number of proposed lots to 52. A modified entrance location for the subdivision from Cabin Way is included, but Lime Road continues to be the main access thoroughfare. This plan is scheduled to be presented to the May 29 hearing at the Planning Commission.

A first reading of a proposed annual budget for the fiscal year 2008-2009 for the City was presented by City Treasurer, Bill Galloway. Drafts of ordinances incorporating and maintaining the same tax rates as previous years were distributed. A discussion about enacting an increase in the tax rate to enlarge the City’s available funds for contingency expenses was had, but no action was taken. The Glenview Hills Commissioners will hold the second reading on the proposed budget at the June monthly meeting, at which time it is expected to be voted upon and approved.

Commissioners Ken Lampe and Virginia Schulte will soon be posting Rumpke's holiday schedule on the website. This schedule advises residents of the dates for waste pick up during the weeks of major holidays such as Memorial Day, July 4, and so forth.

Finally, while the Commissioners would prefer that residents not use the City stop signs or light or street signs to post notices, they do understand that circumstances sometimes compel the need to advertise for lost pets, etc. We request, however, that should you use this method, that you timely remove all papers, tape and other materials before they become unsightly.
