Carroll County Commissioners was visited by guests and held hearings during the week of June 5-June 9.
Susan Moore, Community Development Specialist for the Ohio Regional Development Corporation (ORDC) opened the public hearing for the PY23 CDBG Program. She announced one project and one planning was chosen.
To be eligible, projects need to benefit low to moderate income (LMI) residents. The LMI benefit can be a direct benefit, limited clientele, or elimination of slum or blight. The 2023 allocation is $150,000.
Village of Dellroy Community Hall is the chosen project. Approximately $114,000 in grant funds will provide upgrades including a new roof, door openers, new flooring, lighting and plumbing, electrical, fencing around the HVAC system and new generators. Security cameras are also being discussed.
“This will allow the center to be used as an emergency center with heating and cooling that is necessary for the community,” said Moore.
An amount of $6,000 will be used for a Planning Activity and $30,000 for administration and the Fair Housing program.
The Carrollton Village Fire Department applied for equipment, but they did not meet the the requirements.
In an unrelated matter, Moore said there was a small delay with bond paperwork for the demolition project. Moore does not have the demolition schedule yet, but she believes it will begin in the next couple of weeks. Commissioner Chris Modranski asked if the third package is being prepared and Moore said package number three will be going out next week.
Sonja Trbovich, Carroll County Transit director, presented quotes for the parking lot reseal project at the building. Trbovich asked five companies for quotes but only received two.
She received quotes from Carroll Asphalt & Sales, LLC in the amount of $6,430 and Milhoan Asphalt Maintenance, Inc. for $5,700. Commissioner Modranski asked if the bids were comparable. Trbovich advised that yes, she asked all companies for an estimate to clean, prep, fill cracks, seal asphalt, and restripe all existing parking spots. Trbovich advised that after looking at the quotes, she discovered that Milhoan’s quote only included one coat of Sealmaster asphalt sealer, whereas Carroll Asphalt’s estimate included two coats of Sealmaster. Commissioner Don Leggett advised that is a huge difference. Trbovich advised that even though their quote is higher, it is better to have two coats of sealer, and it is her recommendation they choose Carroll Asphalt & Sales LLC. In other business, commissioners:
-HEARD Leggett advised residents the county engineer’s office and the township trustees will be spraying a lot of emulsion and chipping and sealing a lot of roads. This process will take a couple of days for everything to dry. He recommends residents slow down if they see tar.
-APPROVED a Biennial Subgrant Agreement between the Carroll County Board of Commissioners and the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services for the term of July 1, 2023, to June 30, 2024, as recommended by Shelley A. Martin, Director, Child Support Enforcement Agency.
-AGREED to purchase a new server for $2,899. The current one has reached its end of life because Microsoft is ending its service. Nuzzolillo Jr. is getting a new HP server with 10 TB of storage because the old one will be at risk to malware with no updates.
