Cridersville council looks back to look forward

The Cridersville Village Council met for the first time in 2014 last night for a two hour meeting addressing the month of December, 2013, as a whole and what is on the slate for 2014.

Cridersville Mayor Lorali Myers opened the meeting by welcoming new council member Robert Conner and by seeking nominations for council president. 

Conner nominated council member Eric West, and council member Paul Lynch seconded the nomination.

Myers revisited some concerns from the December 2013 meeting. One concern was that of a recreational vehicle parked in a resident’s driveway. As of now, the vehicle has been moved into a horizontal position in the driveway as to not obstruct the street views for surrounding neighbors. A second concern was that of vision obstructions on the corners of streets in a couple of different locations. Currently, the planning committee has decided to wait until closer to spring when the weather is better and adjustments can be made more easily.

During the committee reports, Rick Miller, Chief of the Fire Department mentioned that the annual pancake day raised $512 in December. He said all of that money is going toward books for kids at the school.

Many of the village’s larger events for 2014 have their dates set. The events include the annual garage sale which will take place May 3, the annual village clean up day will take place May 17, the Fireman’s Jamboree is celebrating it’s fiftieth year this year and will take place July 11 and 12 and Christmas on Main is set for Dec. 13.
