New Business: Rowland Hall Repairs and Grant

President McDonald summarized the issues involving Rowland Hall and its' designation as a polling place. It currently does not meet the handicap access requirements for a polling place or public building. Reasons given were the condition of the sidewalk/access path and step into Rowland Hall, as well as the deteriorated asphalt in the two parking spaces that are utilized for temporary Handicap parking during elections. The township was notified that these repairs must be made before the next election or Rowland Hall cannot be used for that purpose. Addison Township and the Village have been working to complete a grant application to get money to bring the Hall into compliance. The Township would be obligated to pay the money for the renovations under the terms of the grant. The Township and Village wish to cooperate and make the necessary repairs, so a resolution was drafted to address the concerns of both parties. Should the Township fail to get the grant, the village would still pursue using CDBG funds, but would likely not make the November election deadline due to the time it takes to reprogram the funds.

A resolution produced by the township was provided and another resolution with some minor revisions was also provided, The Council discussed the different versions and the attached resolution was adopted by the Council.

The motion by Mr. Noaker, supported by Mr. Hoffman was: The amended resolution is adopted and if further revisions are necessary, the Village President may modify the resolution as needed in the best interests of the Village of Leonard. Upon a Roll Call Vote: Motion carried. Ayes: Mr. Noaker, Mrs. Blanka, Mr. Birr, Mr. Hoffman, President McDonald, Mrs. Sutherby. Absent: Mr. Almeranti

A motion was made by Mrs. Blanka to adjourn at 7:53 p.m., seconded by Mr. Hoffman. All in favor.

Sincerely,

Charlene Sutherby

Deputy Clerk/Trustee
