Loudonville Council awarded the contract for Americans With Disabilities Act entry and restroom facility improvements in the Loudonville Town Hall to the Adena Corp., Mansfield, at its meeting Monday, June 19.

Cost of this project is estimated at $250,000, Mayor Steve Stricklen said.

Council reasserted its denial of a request by Gloria Sargent, for Mugs, to hold a flea market in Central Park July 15.

Factors in the disapproval were aesthetics for a flea market in the park area, and liability concerns.

It approved a wedding being held on the Riverside Park foot bridge from 4 to 6:30 p.m. Monday, July 17.

Stricklen put off until the July 3 council meeting a decision on the village joining the Loudonville Rotary Club on a corporate membership.

"Issue I see is most of us are working full-time jobs and many times would not be available to attend their noon Thursday meetings," Stricklen said. "(Village Administrator) Curt (Young) was a member for a while, but resigned because he was hardly ever able to attend meetings."

Council directed Law Director Thom Gilman and Village Administrator Curt Young to draft a letter to ConRail officials expressing dissatisfaction with the lack of repair and condition of railroad crossings in the village on North Spring and North Market Streets.

"Not only are the crossings still bumpy, even after improvements, but they now seem to be a trap for storm water after heavy rains," the mayor said.

Council directed the village maintenance departments to close the village dog park and remove the fence, which Council Parks Committee Chairman Jason VanSickle said had created a liability issues

Councilwoman Traci Cooper said if a dog park is recreated later, she hoped it could be in a better location.

"That site is too small and very swampy when wet," she said.

Young announced that the village will begin spraying for mosquitoes starting today, June 21, and will spray on subsequent Wednesdays, weather permitting, until late August.
