Citizens petitions: 


Department Heads:

Director of Public Works, Ron Jean; not present.

Police Chief, Bob Cole, present; Niko, the police canine, has been involved in finding meth recently.  Dodge built the wrong vehicle for the police department. The police ordered a pursuit Durango and a special services Durango was what the police received.  He is trying to get the vehicle replaced with the vehicle they requested, in the meantime, they are driving the vehicle that was delivered.  Jared Larson will be off for 6-weeks for service with the National Guard beginning in August.  August 6th, Kyle Askren will begin his SRO duties.  The school will receive the SRO grant from Homeland Security for the upcoming year.

Fire Chief, Mike Little, was not present.  Chris Beedle and Ed O’Farrell attended in his absence.  Chris reported that the fire department is still seeking quotes for heating and cooling for the fire department.  There have been 11 fire runs so far in July.

Building Commissioner Jeff Pyke was not present.

Unfinished Business:

Brian Jarvis, the owner of 106/108 S Perry St, was served with notification of damages sought for the demolition of the building at this address.

Mr. Smart asked if a letter has been sent to Mr. Bieneman. He also asked if a letter has been sent to the owners of the Attica Hotel on N. Perry Street.  Mr. Pycke is not present to answer these questions.

Mr. Smart said that Mayor Brad Crain said that Covington city crews demolish houses themselves and use roll off dumpsters.  This is done at a cost of $5000.

Chief Cole asked what the plans are for the lot that Basic Auto/Mark Stepp owns on S. Perry St.  Some people have recently been asking him about this property.  Tom O’Connor says the City has not had any further conversations about exchanging this property for the ones owned by the City on N. Perry.  Those are currently zoned residential so that isn’t even a viable scenario.  Mr. Stepp currently does not have a license from the state to sell cars at the S. Perry property.  Can the Mayor follow-up on this?

New business:

There were no utility credits at this meeting.


Mr. Gayler made a motion and Mr. Smart made a second to approve all claims presented.  All were in favor and the motion passed.

Miscellaneous Business:

There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned, and the next Board of Works meeting will be held on August 7th, 2018 at 4:30 pm.
