Village council passes legislation

SHADYSIDE – Village council Monday night passed legislation on natural gas aggregation for the upcoming ballot in November.

Due to time constraints, council had to vote and pass this piece of legislation at this meeting or it would not make the ballot.

Much like the electrical aggregation, residents can vote on whether or not they want it.

The legislation, as read by fiscal officer Jeryl McGaffick, states, “This is ordinance authorizing all actions necessary to affect the governmental natural gas aggregation with opt out provisions.”

After a second and third reading, council voted and passed the legislation.

The renewal levy for the village will also be on the November ballot.

All major and minor building permits were accepted.

Councilman Bob Bell asked if letters to property owners have been sent out and if the code enforcer has been doing followups. Police Chief Rusty Patt assured Bell that the code enforcer was.

The Shadyside Fireman’s Festival will begin on Wednesday. The 5K race will also be held on Wednesday at 7 p.m.

Mayor Robert Newhart was not at Monday’s meeting. Councilman John Tipton was also absent and was excused by council.
