Butler Council unanimously approved a measure to seek an engineering firm to begin the process of reconstruction or renovation of the village’s waste water treatment plant following a 4-0 vote in favor of the proposal at the Oct. 27 council meeting.
“The compliance schedule says we have to have a preliminary engineering report done by January,” said Butler Mayor Kevin Carr. “Getting it started now gives us the opportunity throughout the year to look for financial options.”
The exact location and specifics of the project are still being discussed among village officials. The next step for the village is to apply for a ‘Permit to Install’ with the state.
Additionally council along with Worthington Twp. trustees, passed a resolution declaring their oppositio of a combined Clear Fork Elementary School, which would be constructed outside the village.
“The Butler (Elementary) building is a historical centerpiece of the community,” said Carr. “It is an economic center of the community and we are urging that Clear Fork School District would keep the elementary school in Butler.”
Council also heard the first reading of an ordinance that nominates John Burton as the village solicitor and James Banks as fiscal officer.
