Discussion rules roost at CV council meeting
Written by LISA HOUSERMAN
During the September meeting of Conneautville Borough Council, a resident in attendance approached council with advice about conducting the meetings.
He said that he had been attending the meetings for the past 6 months and had some observations and recommendations that might aid in the meetings flowing in a better manner. One idea was to record them so that secretary Joyce McMillin would be able to take a more active part in the actual discussions, rather than focusing solely on note taking.
In doing so, he praised her for knowing what is going on in the borough and basically being very knowledgeable about the inner workings of all things Conneautville. He continued by stating that there are a lot of things that are discussed every month that do not appear in the minutes. After saying that, he acknowledged that it would be pretty much impossible to include everything in said minutes, hence his idea for tape recording the meetings.
He gave an example of the things that should appear in the minutes by saying that when the solicitor goes over the details about a particular situation, law, etc., those are the kinds of things that should appear in minutes.

The Conneaut School District continues to wait for its money from the sale of a lot at Conneaut Lake Park, one of the lots the Bankruptcy Court has allowed to be sold.
Park managers have said the lots are not needed in running the park now or in the future.
The closing on the sale took place back on June 17 and nearly 3 months later the money remains at the Crawford County Treasurer’s office despite a number of inquiries by the school district as to when payment to the district might be anticipated.
Latest information is that the money should be received in early-mid October, and that it would probably be November or December by the time the other taxing bodies [Crawford County, and townships of Sadsbury and Summit] get their payments paid to them and then processed and approved to pay back the school district that fronted much of the money for attorney fees.
