WASHINGTONVILLE - Council approved final appropriations for 2012 of $151,000 while adopting a resolution for $74,000 in temporary appropriations for 2013 at Monday's meeting.

Fiscal Officer Dale Davis said the 2013 appropriations for current expenses will get the village through until April 1. Both resolutions were passed with emergency clauses and 5-0 votes.

Council President Devon Davis was absent.

In other business, Councilwoman Theresa Allison said a property on Stocking Street was "very bad" as far as junk and Assistant Police Chief Mark Husk said there was a question of where it was located. He said the southside of the property is in Leetonia, but he would check.

He said there are four trailers that were torn down but the scrap hasn't been picked up.

Council also vote to donate $300 to the Leetonia Little Bears booster organization after Mayor Will Jones said he had been approached for some money.

He said it was for all the fourth, fifth and sixth-grade kids who go to Leetonia which included Washingtonville residents.

"It helps get the kids ready for seventh and eighth grade sports and keeps Leetonia competitive," Jones said, adding they use the money for equipment and uniforms.

Councilwoman Ramona Custer said, "I think we should do it for the $300 if we could" and made a motion.

"I think it's really a good idea," Jones said and council approved the resolution.

In other business, Utilities Superintendent Brian Gudat said the new roof had been installed on the wastewater treatment building.

Mike Mancuso Construction in Columbiana submitted the winning estimate out of the four that were received and council approved the $3,575 price that included a new drip edge.

Also, Police Chief Ken Faust said the new patrolwoman, Autumn Dean, was in training for two days last week. He said she was shown the village boundaries.

"We're trying to break her in easy," he said, "and not hit her with too much."

Also, after the Pledge of Allegiance to begin the meeting, Jones asked for a moment of silence in remembrance of the Connecticut school killings on Dec. 14.

Council will meet again on Jan. 7.
