FORT JENNINGS — Fort Jennings Council members discussed and bypassed the three-reading rule and passed on emergency the ordinance authorizing the village to put the electricity aggregation on the Nov. 4 ballot during the meeting Tuesday night.

Mayor Jim Smith said the residents will be able to vote whether they want the village to act on their behalf by putting the village’s electricity costs out for bid and choosing the contract length. He said the aggregation program is also being considered by Ottoville and the two communities — if each approve the aggregation program — may be able to combine and use the same agent giving both villages a better utility rate.

“This gives us the ability to negotiate with a vendor,” Smith said. “We will have two public hearings which we will hold at 6 p.m. before council meetings on the third Tuesday in September and October.”

In addition, Smith will send residents the information on the aggregation in a future mailing.

Park Board Vice President Kari Amstutz updated council as to how plans are proceeding with Fort Fest events.

“Registration for Kid’s Camp Day is July 31 and registration forms can be downloaded online from fortjenningspark.com,” Amstutz said.
