POMEROY — Members of Pomeroy Village Council approved Christmas bonuses for employees during a recent meeting.
Council voted 4-0 — with Ruth Spaun abstaining and Vic Young absent — to give full-time employees a $100 bonus, and part-time employees a $50 bonus.
The approval comes after a finance committee meeting, which determined that there were funds available for the payout.
Council also approved the purchase of three head works for storm drains. The cost is approximately $16,000 and will be completed by Pullins Excavating.
Council also approved placing the money from the sale of the old Pomeroy High School into a separate line item in the general fund.
A pay voucher from Doll Layman was approved for the Phase II CSO project.
Council discussed the possibility of changes to the sewer rate, with Village Administrator Paul Hellman to present an ordinance at a later meeting for discussion.
Council went into executive session with Village Solicitor Michael Barr to discuss possible litigation.
Present at the meeting were council members Spaun, Jackie Welker, Dru Reed, Robert Payne and Phil Ohlinger, Mayor Mary McAngus, clerk/treasurer Sonya Wolfe, and Hellman.
