ELIDA — Concerns about election campaign signs dominated the Elida Village Council meeting Tuesday.
Council member Chris McNamara brought up the signs.
“I have people coming to me complaining about the campaign signs that are in the rights of way and in vacant lots,” McNamara said.
Mayor Ron Klopfenstein said campaigners are not allowed to put the signs on the rights of way.
Village Administrator Scott Fessler re-iterated the zoning laws prohibiting the signs in those areas and said he will take a tour around the village and make some phone calls.
McNamara added that she is still working on the donations for the cookies that will be provided for the annual Halloween festival.
“I have prices from a bulk supplier and they are close to what we paid at the supermarket, which would be $20 more,” she said.
Council approved McNamara going forward with purchasing the cookies from the bulk supplier.
Fessler also reported he received the final plaque for the dedication of Bulldog Boulevard and North Street from Elida Local Schools.
The pay ordinance for the Elida village for the month of October totaled to $72,713.12. Fiscal Officer Janet Bonifas said she was preparing the pay ordinance for the year end and wanted to let the council members know she will be putting together a packet and when they receive it to look it over.
The next village council meeting will be held on Nov. 12.
