Loveland City Council Continues Student Government Night Tradition

Eleven Loveland High School students received a hand-on lesson in leadership on April 25 when they ran the Loveland City Council Meeting.  City Council Members stepped aside and let the students debate agenda items, vote on issues, and listen to resident concerns. 

The April 25 agenda included proclamations for Arbor Day and Buckeye Trail Town Day, an agreement with PIRHL for the completion of park improvements on a City owned parcel, the submission of a Department of Natural Resources NatureWorks Grant, and ladder truck repairs.  Student Mayor Rachel Ingal drafted and presented Mr. David Volkman with a Proclamation expressing their appreciation for his service to the Loveland School District, and a Resolution to recognize Mr. Volkman as a recipient of the 2017 Federal Bar Association Excellence in Civics Education Award.

Prior to the meeting, City Council Members and City Staff Members met with their student counterparts to help them learn more about the issues, help them understand what is involved when making a decision, and teach them what questions are important for local government officials to have answered before they vote.

The students and their counterparts were: Rachel Ingal (Mayor Mark Fitzgerald); Autumn Binford (Vice Mayor Angela Settell); Andrea Wittekind (Council Member Kathy Bailey); Renn Redslob (Council Member Pamela Gross); Gianna Vitali (Council Member Ted Phelps); Ben Cummins (Council Member Robert Weisgerber); Max Sprigg-Dudley (Council Member Steve Zamagias); Nate Lawry (City Manager David Kennedy); Thomas Schott (Clerk of Council Misty Cheshire); Braxton Smith (Police Chief Sean Rahe); and Abbie Puchta (Finance Director Kelly Flannigan)

This event was organized by Loveland Government Teacher David Volkman.  During his opening remarks, Mr. Volkman indicated this program has been in existence for 42 years.

New and Noteworthy

The former bowling alley property located at 897 Loveland Madeira Road was sold on Friday, April 21, to Bunnell Hill Development Company, Inc. (Schueler Group).  The contract sale price of $540,000 allowed the City to recoup their cost of purchasing the property.  Prior to the closing, Bunnell Hill invested in inspections and surveys of the property and is committed to developing the site.  The property is comprised of 6.53 acres and is currently zoned business retail.

Loveland's Public Works Department installed solar powered advance warning low clearance signs on both approaches to the downtown train trestle.

Barrett Paving is scheduled to begin the final paving of the Little Miami Scenic Bike Trail next week. Paving will start at Camp Dennison and move north.  They expect to be in on Loveland May 1.  During this time, the trail will be closed in areas of active paving.

Marcie Longenecker, Southwest Ohio Regional Representative for the Office of State Treasurer Josh Mandel, attended the Finance Committee Meeting last week to discuss the Ohio Checkbook Program.
