Upgrades for the village’s technology and roadways dominated the discussion at Ada’s virtual Village Council meeting Tuesday night.
Under the “old business” section of the meeting, Ken Lauria spoke on the added stresses of the pandemic on the village’s technological infrastructure and the measures he proposed to undertake in response. Following Lauria’s presentation, council proceeded with “new business” in the form of a discussion of solutions to visibility issues at the intersection of Lima Avenue and Main Street.
Only one other guest addressed council at last night’s meeting: Ohio Northern University history professor Dr. Russ Crawford, who called for community assistance in his students’ oral history project of the 2005 ice storm.
Before and during the meeting, council discussed the night’s only piece of legislation: a Resolution 2021-04, which concerns the village’s policy on reimbursement for indigent burials, with further re-tooling to the measure expected by its next reading.
Other items discussed included plans to honor Ada High School seniors with downtown banners, potential repairs to the swimming pool’s hydrostatic valve, and the dubious legality of yard signs in tree lawns.
Ada Village Council’s next regular meeting is scheduled to be held Tuesday, April 6, beginning at 6:30 p.m. Council meetings will remain virtual until further notice.
