ELIDA — The first and short meeting in March for Elida Village Council addressed several issues.
An ordinance to make appropriations for current expenses and other expenditures of the village during the fiscal year ending Dec. 31 was read for the third time by Fiscal Officer Janet Bonifas. It passed unanimously.
Also presented was an ordinance authorizing a working agreement between the Allen Soil and Water Conservation District and the Village of Elida. This ordinance will be voted on at a later date.
Bonifas reported the listing of all records of the village with the Ohio State Auditor and the historical society has been signed and approved.
“The Ohio Historical Society has made recommendations that we need to go digital in the near future. We really need to stay current with our records due to the fact that if people in the State of Ohio Auditor’s Office request to see our past records and we don’t have them, they can fine us up to $1,000,” Bonifas said.
Council member Claude Paxton spoke before the meeting ended.
“I would like to thank Mr. Scott Fessler, the village administrator, for the good job you did on reporting about the water department,” Paxton said. “I also would like to ask what Digital Data Technologies, Inc., that is listed on our payment listing?”
Bonifas fielded his question.
“That is a fee for software used for the village police cars so Allen County knows where they are; it is like a GPS system,” she said.
The next scheduled meeting will be at 7:30 p.m. on March 25.
