The Enon Eagle will continue to update the community by focusing on the major news items in the New Year. We plan to do our best to bring you information from the local governmental agencies.
Here are a few updates since we ended our publication. Greenon Local construction of the new school building will be on hold until the January and work on the underground utilities can begin. The recent wet weather left the site too muddy for work over the holidays, however the district explained that the contractors will begin again in the coming weeks.
Mad River Township will hold their first organizational meeting of 2019 on Monday, January 7 beginning at 7 pm. The public is invited to attend all meetings which are held the first and third Monday of each month beginning at 7;30 pm.
Things to watch for in 2019 include how they will allocate the recently approved extension of the tax levy for roads.
Will they resolve the flooding issues in Green Meadows following recommendations from civil engineers they met with in late 2018.
How they will spend the donation to the emergency services department from a resident who left his estate to the department.
The Village of Enon will hold their organizational meeting on Tuesday, January 8 at their regular meeting which begins at 7 pm. The public is invited to attend.
Things to watch for in 2019 include the search for a new Village Administrator. Council was unable to fill the position which has been vacant for over a year and have resolved to up the benefits package in hopes of attracting individuals who wish to work part time in this position.
Work is scheduled to begin on the water tower in town this spring with repairs and refurbishing.
There will be the addition of a children’s book swap box at Settler’s Park this spring thanks to a generous donation from a local resident.
Greenon Local Board of Education is scheduled to meet the third Thursday of each month beginning at 7 pm. This year they will be finalizing a decision on the new branding campaign for the schools.
Other items that are sure to be on the agenda are updates on the construction of the new schools and decisions on the interior and exterior when the bids come in for the subcontracts. The board will need to look at the costs of materials at that time which are expected to be influenced by the tariffs imposed by the current administration on steel and other imports.
As 2018 came to a close, the New Year promised to be filled with decisions and changes in our community.
