For a fledgling institution 10 years into its new incarnation, the COVID-19 pandemic brought additional challenges and scrutiny.
Village Council Regular Meeting — March 1, 2021
On Monday, March 29, all Ohioans 16 and older will be eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. DeWine made the major announcement on Tuesday after dropping the age limit to 50 the week prior. Before that, the governor moved more slowly to expand access to the vaccine, which has been limited in supply.
Last week, DeWine even laid out a benchmark to lifting the mask mandate, limits on mass gatherings and other health orders put in place last year: Once new cases fall below 50 per 100,000 residents over a two-week period, all health orders will be rescinded entirely.
Starting on Thursday, March 4, vaccines were to be available for those 60 and older, those with certain medical conditions and those working in law enforcement, childcare and funeral services.
Village Council Regular Meeting — February 16, 2021
At 3 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 22, Allison Moody’s company closed on its purchase of the Millworks business center. By Tuesday morning, its muddy parking lot had a fresh coat of gravel.
Speaking at a press briefing from his Cedarville Township home on Tuesday, Feb. 16, Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine said he understands that some Ohioans are impatient with the pace of vaccination.
Beatty Hughes Park, located between Kieth’s Alley and Corry Street, may someday host live music concerts, outdoor movies, family picnics and art exhibits.
Council members are now more limited in what they can say. According to Council President Brian Housh, the goal of the new measures is to improve civility and respect in discourse.
