During a debate on an alley vacation request, at the site between inlots 165, 773, 792, and 793, members of council had valid evidence to argue over both the closing of the alley, and keeping it open. When it came to the vote, it was passed three to two, to keep the alley open.The Leipsic Council declared an emergency on a "then and now purchase order," to pay Peterson Construction for the work on the waste water treatment plant.
Ordinance 2744, was read three times and passed by council to write the check to pay for the construction as quickly as possible. The council was reminded that the money being spend on the project was not the Village of Leipsic's money, but is coming from the Company and the other half is coming from the EPA.
Dolgen Midwest LLC., doing business as Dollar General, located on the southern tip of Leipsic, is requesting to the board of liquor control to be allowed to sell wine at their store.
Resolution 2741, legislation to grand two employees of the village wage adjustments, was read for the third time and passed by council. The two employees whom were included in the resolution, were not granted the normal raises after an allotted amount of employment.
Leaves will continue to be picked up in the village through the month of November.
