Leetonia buys a small sewer camera | News, Sports, Jobs

LÉTONIA – Mayor Kevin Siembida announced the purchase of a small sewer camera during Wednesday’s meeting.

The camera will reduce the village’s need for contractor services, charging up to $ 1,000 for each video frame.

“It won’t completely save us from having to contract, but it will help our guys use the equipment for diagnosis and ultimately save us money,” Siembida said.

The camera has already been used. Siembida predicts that the camera has already saved a few hundred dollars.

Regarding street repairs, the village is working to repair nine areas of pavement following recent water pipe breaks.

In other areas, EMS chief Robert Sanchez is calling for payroll to be distributed once a month instead of once every three months.

Sanchez believes the change in payroll would encourage people to take more shifts.

Council members discussed the payroll change on the first of the year.

In other news, original record books dating as far back as 1882 have recently been returned to the village.

“We were able to recover them and they are now back in possession of the village of Leetonia”, Siembida announced.

The books will be kept in a safe.

In other cases, Zoning Officer Tina M. Schneider, has addressed a retaining wall ordinance put in place by the village.

A retaining wall bill was introduced in the spring at the request of Council member Neal Bayless.

Schneider said she had looked at the project and suggested that the council go ahead with passing legislation.

She suggested changing the fees in the future.

“I find the fees a bit low for the service we provide them”, Schneider pointed out.

It has expressed its intention to settle costs related to compliance violations and to address legislative delays regarding retaining walls.

Regarding local commerce, Siembida discussed the distribution of the rest of the Covid relief funds to the village.

Siembida informed village administrators that the remaining relief funds would be distributed among businesses in the village.

Village officials have considered requests from local businesses and Siembida expects the funds to be dispersed in two to three weeks.

Finally, a meeting of the Coke Ovens Commission will take place at the village town hall at 6 p.m. on October 27.
