Storm Drains

May 30, 2016

Please be MP neighborly and keep the storm drains in front of your home cleared of debris. Grass clippings in the street wind up clogging MP storm sewers and cause street damage, costing the Village money. Please mulch grass clippings into your own yard or dispose of them properly. Thanks for being a good neighbor.


Reprint from the August 2015 Villager
By Scott Doellinger, Code Enforcement Officer

When everything works as intended, the stormwater system is a thing of beauty. No, really.

Rain flowing off the streets goes into storm drains ... then into underground pipes ... then into Minerva Park lakes ... then into Kilbourn Run ... then into Alum Creek ... then further downstream ... as intended.

But just like plaque build-up in your arteries, when that flow is restricted, there’s back-up. In a stormwater system, we call it flooding. Offenders are leaves, grass clippings, branches, or any other obstruction that keeps rainwater from moving quickly through the system.

Village Ordinance 660.05 requires the occupants of a lot abutting a street to keep the sidewalk, curb, and gutter free of snow, ice, or “any other nuisance.” This includes keeping leaves, grass clippings, and other debris out of the stormwater system to avoid flooding.

It’s just as important to keep organic material from running into the lakes, thereby reducing sediment that requires dredging, costing thousands of dollars. And toxic materials such as motor oil, fertilizer run-off, and fluids from automobiles will do serious harm to the lake ecosystems.

So keep the roadway and gutter free of debris and keep the fish happier and Minerva Park’s lakes healthy and clean. And help prevent flooding that can strike unannounced at you and/or your neighbor(s) ... a worthy goal in and of itself.



Veterans Memorial Update

Mar 3, 2016

By Mayor Lynn Eisentrout ...
I just had a great meeting with Harry Toy. As you may recall, he is the Wildwood Road resident and veteran who first approached me several years ago about erecting a Veterans Memorial, specifically in front of the Community Building and near the existing flag pole. Mr. Toy and I reviewed the text for the Memorial, "Dedicated to all veterans who have honorably served past, present and future," and he has approved it. We also discussed the placement and the status of the sales of the bricks/pavers. Please consider purchasing a paver for $40 from Mr. Toy or the Village, because this is an integral part of the Memorial. These pavers memorialize loved ones, living or deceased, who have served our country. He can be reached at 614-890-0141. I can be reached at 614-668-8240. You do not need to know the exact dates of service. WW II, Korean War, etc., is fine along with the branch of service, i.e., Army, Navy, Coast Guard, etc. Mr. Toy has taken on the task to reach out to his many contacts in veterans organizations to participate in a dedication ceremony when the time comes. Our target date for this dedication ceremony was Memorial Day 2016, but Mr. Toy reminded me that most veterans attend parades and ceremonies that day. At his request, we will target the weekends before or after Memorial Day for the dedication. NOTE: Portions of this project (the foundation work) are dependent on decent weather for completion. We will be posting the paver form on the website the weekend of March 4. What will this look like? I hope to have a rendering of the Memorial posted on the website within the next week.
