CAMBRIDGE, Ohio -- Cambridge City Council took care of a short list of items as they met in regular session on Monday Night.
Mayor Tom Orr addressed Council concerning the large number of potholes in city streets. The Mayor says this year's extreme winter has wreaked havoc on the streets, causing large potholes in the pavement on a large number of streets. Orr says he has been taking calls from residents regarding those potholes and explained that crews, at this time, are still having difficulty obtaining patching materials, including plain old dirt.
The Mayor says the Street Department is anxious to start work and will begin patching as soon as the proper materials can be obtained.
Orr also says a meeting will take place in the near future for those interested in mowing for the City this year. He says Code Enforcement Officer Kim Conrath will oversee the mowing of properties that fail to meet city requirements.
The Mayor congratulated Cambridge Clerk of Council Sharon Cassler on her appointment to the 2014 Board of Trustees for the Ohio Municipal League.
Council approved a tax abatement for American Energy Utica, who is purchasing property in the D.O. Hall Business Park. The company is now to receive an 80% tax abatement from the city for the next 15 years.
Council also passed a request from Safety Director Rocky Hill to appropriate $2,014 to the police salary line item.
