Mr Godfrey appears to be the only one who gets the amount of tax revenue that the sale of cannabis can bring to the city. It’s time to replace the other council members

Thank you to the council members who listened to the voices of Belpre who overwhelmingly said via emails, phone calls etc that they did not want Marijuana sales in Belpre. That is how you govern.

Way to fail, Belpre. Way to fail.

๐Ÿ—‚๏ธOffice of the Mayor,
Report July 8,2024๐Ÿ—‚๏ธ

Communications:
โ€ข On the 4th of July I had the pleasure of attending the Belpre Area Veterans and the Masonic Lodge Flag raising and retirement ceremonies. What an incredible and moving event. Those organizing and participating did a wonderful job the retired 1047 flags. I was also pleased to see the number of citizens that came out to participate in service and retire a flag.

โ€ข We have posted the Cities open positions on indeed, the city website, Facebook and are working with Civil Service to get applicants tested if they want to move forward.
โ€ข We have had a couple water leaks over the past several days. The water crew in collaboration with the street dept has worked very hard on resolving these issues.
โ€ข Tomorrow Rumpke will be having a seminar on Recycling at the Layfette.

Well 2 Rehab - Engineering on this project to begin.

Water Rate Analysis:
โ€ข A rate analysis presentation went very well I look forward to the next steps of discussion in order to begin moving our projects forward.

โ€ข Water Tower:
This project is on hold until Utilities determine if any rate hike will occur. The hospital is preparing for demolition of the current site at the end of the month.

Lead Service Lines โ€“ We are not doing very well with getting the surveys completed. Everyone needs to work within your wards to help get the surveys completed. Next week we will have a strategy session on how to accomplish this task prior to Sept 1

Street:
โ€ข ODOT will be working on Rt 50/7 near the City line. They are having issues with road surface.
โ€ข The recent Tar spill along the highway was handled quickly and effectively by all parties involved. The area has been reseeded with no issues following the incident.

Operational Issues:
Currently we have several open positions: 1 in the streets, 1 in the water, 2 in sewer and the Public Works Superintendent has submitted his resignation effective August 3. Mr President at the end I would request and executive session related to staffing and salary planning.

Pond Update: The pond is full and beautiful. We are receiving many nice comments and people are excited for it to stocked and ready for the children. I have met with the Bass Club regarding their desire to stock for the kids derby in August.

I know I’m probably not the only one here but if I am, so be it. I like getting the ‘Mayor’s Report’ and all that prior to the Council meeting, just like we have for tonight. It gives me (and us) a chance to look over everything and have our questions, opinion, (etc.) ready, if any. I know it can’t always be this way because people get busy but this is nice.

Your doing a great job the pond looks beautiful.

I love seeing the updates and things that are being done to make Belpre what it can be…beautiful. Where is the right place to post concerns on things that do need cleaned up ?

What is the role of the tree commission and what are their responsibilities?

Too bad not in evenings. I would love to see what it’s all about but work during the day b

City of Belpre, Ohio the 40 fruit trees the Girl Scouts planted by the tracks are looking kind of grim in this heat. Do they still get regular tlc? (Just noticed on a drive by there today. This heat has been brutal! ๐Ÿ™ )
