Village OKs updates to street decor

BOTKINS — Community beautification was the topic of discussion at a regular Botkins Village council meeting on Tuesday.

Angie Woodruff, with the Botkins Beautification Club, addressed council with a request to apply for funding for new snowflake light decoration to top 14 poles in the village to be installed in the fall. She said the cost would be approximately $5,000.

Council members discussed how the new lights would be an alternative to the previous decorative banners.
Woodruff said the lights would be donated to the village.

A motion was made for the club to apply for the grant.

Village Administrator Jesse Kent said the village received an insurance check for the full amount to replace the south corporation decorative sign that was destroyed by a wheel that came loose from a truck. Sign Solutions of Ohio has started construction, and Kent said the sign will be completed within 4-6 weeks.
