NEW RIEGEL - John Davoli with NCOR Council of Governments addressed New Riegel Village Council as original members of the consortium. He presented the final copy of the study done by the Local Government Innovation Fund, "Roadmap To IT Solutions," and requested council's approval.
He also asked for council to allow Mayor Larry Bouillon to sign a partnership agreement for an application for an LGIF loan through the Ohio Development Service Agency for information technology consolidation. The loan is for $500,000 at 0 percent interest for an 11-year payback. The consortium has two years to utilize the money with a grace year followed by 10 years to repay the funds used.
A special meeting has been set for 6:30 p.m. Tuesday to take action on the resolutions as a three-quarter majority of council was not present.
At that time members also will vote on a resolution allowing Bouillon to temporarily replace Councilman Les Staib as liaison on the NBS Joint Fire District board.
