  • Village road surfaces are being sealed

  • Rabbit Run burn postponed

    MTFR has postponed the July 17 controlled burn of the Rabbit Run farmhouse because of further mandated asbestos testing.

  • Village crew works snow days

    Village road and electric crew members, including from left, Kelley Fox, Jane Hamilton, Dave Conley, Jason Hamby, Jason Woods and Kent Harding, have spent the past two weeks plowing a total of around 20 inches of snow that fell on the village roads and parking lots.

    When the sky turns a steely grey and snow starts sheeting down, many residents run for their hearths and accept that they’re at the mercy of the white burial. But Village crew members head straight at the snow, outfitting themselves with plows and backhoes to wrangle up some order, at least in the streets. The eight members of the Village street and electric crews have done quite a bit of wrangling this month since the winter’s two biggest snowstorms dropped nearly 20 inches of snow on the village.

  • Plug pulled on power plant

    The Village made what some would call a wise and prescient decision last year when it declined to sign on to the coal-fired power plant American Municipal Power, Inc. planned to build along the Ohio River. AMP announced last week on Nov. 25 that it was terminating the AMPGS project due to a spike in construction cost estimates that rendered the project unaffordable for its customers.

  • Sewage plant work progresses

    While the horses may have their manes a bit ruffled, members of the Village staff are nothing but relieved to have started digging the giant crater behind the Riding Centre that will serve as the overflow basin for the town’s wastewater treatment plant. Thanks to a federal stimulus grant the Village received this year, the […]

  • Xenia Ave. walks to be fixed

    At its Aug. 3 meeting, Village Council voted to enhance walkability in the village by moving ahead with a long-planned project to repair sidewalks on the east side of Xenia Avenue between Friends Care Community and downtown. In accordance with a current Village ordinance, property owners whose walks are deemed subpar will be held responsible for the repair costs.

  • Stimulus money down the drain— Wastewater funds allocated

    The long-awaited improvements to the Village wastewater treatment plant have finally been funded and approved, and the Village received a permit to install the new equipment this week. The $2.64 million project will be funded by state and federal stimulus grants and is expected to be completed by late 2010.
