During just six days of use, Greendale’s new speed sign dropped average speeds on Nowlin Avenue to 25.8 miles an hour.
The device is portable and is being moved to other areas in the city on a rotating basis.
The planning has been complicated by the location right on the state line of Indiana and Ohio, involving highway departments from two states, Hamilton County, and the City of Greendale.
He stated that the bottom of the city’s new swimming pool is being painted, with a target date of May 20-21 to fill the facility with water. The new pool also will require 16 security cameras at a cost of about $14,000.
At the council meeting which followed, members agreed to extend the fee for fire protection to part of Lawrenceburg township at the same price they have been charging: $24,000 a year for 2014. The extension was requested by Lawrenceburg township trustee Jerome “Tony” Gilb.
At the suggestion of councilman Albert Abdon, more research will be done to determine the percentage of the fire budget devoted to township protection before the contract is renewed next year.
Lampert was given approval to award the contract to complete Greendale’s ongoing upgrading of streets and curbs to the apparent low bidder, Paul Rohe Company, whose bid was $1,046,623, if information received proves Rohe is the lowest and most responsive and responsible bidder.
Lampert had budgeted $1 million for this final segment, since this project is more than twice as large as previous ones have been.
Council also approved a donation of $2,400 to the Central School Destination Imagination team to help pay for their participation in global final competition in Tennessee.
