Those present were: Bob Bentley, Betty Bentley, Judy Morrison, Debbie Morrison, R.E. Baldwin, Ric Pferfer, George Hecwig, Beth Frazer, Mike Frazer, Nancy Orth, Brenda Emery, Lee Pertuset, Deputy Engineer, Mike Hughes, and Charles Grove, The Peoples Defender.

The residents brought up the following concerns:

• Public safety and emergency vehicles getting to residents in a reasonable time.

• Why the road way was not ditched first, and why crusher run stone was not used?

• Difficultly driving due to the #304 stone.

• The residents feel the road has been neglected for the past 10 years.

Deputy Engineer Lee Pertuset addressed the group and explained the project and the following timeline:

• Mr. Pertuset explained that the State of Ohio allowed money for the project which is required to be used within a certain timeline. The funding was to be used to repair the roadway as a result of the ODOT State Route 247 project.

• The County was going to just repair the soft spots in the road but then decided to repair the entire road.

• Mr. Pertuset explained the scope of work to group, 304 stone will be the base layer. The next layer would be (possibly #67), and then chip and seal within 60 days.

• Mr. Pertuset reassured the residents that the stone application should be completed this week or next.

The County Engineer plans to pave Germany Hill next year.
