GRANVILLE — The Granville Village Board meeting on Aug. 1 was short but productive, and members were also looking forward to the village’s annual summer events.
Changes by the Department of Labor prompted the board to approve an amendment to the Prevailing Wage Ordinance. The prevailing wage is defined as the hourly wage and typical benefits paid to the majority of workers and laborers in the largest city in each county. Prevailing wages are established by the Department of Labor for each trade and occupation employed in public work.
The board also approved a $500 payment from the village’s business district fund to the water operating fund to reimburse the water/sewer extension to the business district where Dollar General was constructed.
The board also discussed the playground equipment in Veterans Park, but it decided to table the subject until their next meeting on Aug. 15.
Village President Jared Baker read a note of thanks from the Marshall-Putnam Fair royalty for Granville’s donation and also reminded everyone about the summer’s annual village events including the movie night in Hopkins Park where the film “Sing” was shown. During the movie night, donations were collected for the Putnam County Food Pantry, and popcorn was provided by Axline Pharmacy.
Other events from this past weekend included the cruise night, held on Aug. 4, which featured Spiderman, a petting zoo, and balloon art, and the townwide garage sales.
