HARTVILLE  At its Oct. 20 regular meeting, Hartville Village Council amended the 2020 budget to appropriate the village’s most recent CARES (Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security) Act COVID-19 Act funding received.

The ordinance appropriates the village’s final payment CARES Act payment to date, totaling $133,368 to be used by federally permitted purposes related to the village’s COVID-19 response.

When he announced receipt of the payment at the Oct. 6 village council meeting, Fiscal Officer Scott Varney said that this brings the village total CARES Act receipts to $178,123, the “vast majority” of which will be used to pay police department wages.

Other actions:

• Village Engineer Samer Awadallah reported that the village is in the process of seeking grants for the 2021 paving program and that the Ohio Department of Transportation is finalizing its reconstruction of State Route 619 in the village.

• Council members two recommendations from the village planning commission; an updated plan for a residential housing development on the south side of Woodland Street, and a building expansion at SKJ Properties/Quality Machine.
