New Storage Building Update

On October 6, 2016 council members voted to add a storage building south of the hall.  The proposed building would be 20 ft. x 30 ft.  At the same meeting, the following men were selected as the building committee: Randy Ayette, Paul Mueller, and Luke Stachler.


The committee held its first meeting on October 25, 2016.  On March 21, 2017,  the committee had the blue prints, building permits and zoning permit.


Concrete work will be done by Joshua S. Construction.  Josh Stachler is a member of our council. He plans to start by the end of April.  A fire wall needs to be built between the two buildings.  The wall will be 8 in. wide, 10 ft. high and 20 ft. long.  If any council member would care to help lay blocks for the wall, please call Josh at 937-417-0572.  After the concrete work is finished, Ed Hemmelgarden, another council member,  will put up the building. If anyone would care to help Ed, please call him at 937-417-5452.

When the building is completed, Bud's Electric will install the wiring and the lights.  The engineering was done by Mote and Assoc.  We hope to be able to use the building by late summer, weather permitting.   Thank you for your patience.
