Playground Equipment

May 2, 2016

By Mayor Eisentrout ...
The new playground equipment is going to be pretty popular with our little residents. Congratulations to the Village Council’s Community Committee under the leadership of Councilman Dobbins on a job well done. The Village is paying $25,000 for this equipment, including shipping, installation, and a 100-year warranty on most of the pieces. What happens now? Our risk management representative from our liability insurance company has signed off on the design that meets our safety standards. Council approved a motion at the April 25 Council meeting authorizing me to sign off on the agreement so we can move forward with this project. Our goal is to have the installation completed by mid-June, weather permitting. An additional thank you to your MP Community Association for encumbering $3,000 for new benches and trash receptacles for the playground.

Wish to contribute and help defray the cost? Contact either Mayor Eisentrout or . Learn more.



Veterans Memorial Update

Mar 3, 2016

By Mayor Lynn Eisentrout ...
I just had a great meeting with Harry Toy. As you may recall, he is the Wildwood Road resident and veteran who first approached me several years ago about erecting a Veterans Memorial, specifically in front of the Community Building and near the existing flag pole. Mr. Toy and I reviewed the text for the Memorial, "Dedicated to all veterans who have honorably served past, present and future," and he has approved it. We also discussed the placement and the status of the sales of the bricks/pavers. Please consider purchasing a paver for $40 from Mr. Toy or the Village, because this is an integral part of the Memorial. These pavers memorialize loved ones, living or deceased, who have served our country. He can be reached at 614-890-0141. I can be reached at 614-668-8240. You do not need to know the exact dates of service. WW II, Korean War, etc., is fine along with the branch of service, i.e., Army, Navy, Coast Guard, etc. Mr. Toy has taken on the task to reach out to his many contacts in veterans organizations to participate in a dedication ceremony when the time comes. Our target date for this dedication ceremony was Memorial Day 2016, but Mr. Toy reminded me that most veterans attend parades and ceremonies that day. At his request, we will target the weekends before or after Memorial Day for the dedication. NOTE: Portions of this project (the foundation work) are dependent on decent weather for completion. We will be posting the paver form on the website the weekend of March 4. What will this look like? I hope to have a rendering of the Memorial posted on the website within the next week.
