Salineville hopes residents toss junk during clean-up days
SALINEVILLE — With village clean-up days slated for next week, council is hopeful Salineville residents will take advantage of the program to get rid of junk around the village.
During Monday’s council meeting, Mayor Linda Adams said notes about what can and cannot be accepted were sent out with the most recent sewer bills. Any Salineville resident and those on the village sewer system are invited to participate, but they should bring their identification.
From 7:30 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday and Tuesday, June 28 and 29, there will be roll off dumpsters sitting at the street garage, which is located on Washington Street.
Items that cannot be taken include tires; unsolidified paint; liquids; items containing freon such as refrigerators, freezers, AC units and dehumidifiers; E-waste such as TVs and computers; batteries of any kind; mercury switches and thermostats; ammunition and explosives; radioactive, pressurized, volatile, highly flammable, toxic, hazardous or infectious materials.
For those unable to haul their items to the clean up event, campers from Camp Gideon will be in town next week as well and have offered to help. Call the village hall and if no one answers, leave a message with your name, phone number and address. Adams said someone will call back.
Camp Gideon, which has sent campers to perform community service in the village in the past, except last year due to the pandemic, is expected to arrive in town on Monday. Adams asked for everyone to make the campers feel welcome as they provide a service to the village and Councilman Jim Wilson noted they are some of the hardest working people he knows.
With Sgt. Keith Evanoff at the meeting council and Adams made it clear that after the clean up, those who continue to violate village ordinances regarding leaving junk around their properties may be cited.
In other matters:
— A finance committee meeting was set for 2:30 p.m., Wednesday, June 23.
— Council approved hiring of Mark Sloboda, a part-time police officer, who will be hired using funds from a grant Evanoff wrote to help provide extra police protection on off hours in the village.
— Council discussed the riding of ATVs in the village with Evanoff stating a group of children recently riding dirtbikes and ATVs in the village park were warned not to ride into town again.
— The village property insurance will increase from $11,923 to $13,027 next year.
— Council is seeking prices from those interested in mowing the ballfield.
— Adams said she continues to look for solutions for the repairs to bridges on Beadnell Road, but so far has found there is little funding assistance available from the county and the state for the project, which by one estimate could cost about $600,000.
— Due to the next regular council meeting being scheduled for the federal holiday, the meeting has been moved 6 p.m. Tuesday, July 6.
