- NUISANCE REPORT: Learned new letters will be mailed Wednesday to people having junk vehicles and/or overgrown vegetation.
- CEMETERY: Adopted a resolution to provide two burial options in the Pomeroy City Cemetery. Optlon 1 requires purchase of liner of vault at the time of a full burial. The city's opening and closing fees pertain to these burials and will be charged at the current year rates, with the purchaser responsible for vault or liner and associated lowering fees. The second option does not require a vault or liner, but the city will require a $140 fee for interment and another $200 for settling fees. The clerk's office will advise that liners and vaults are strongly recommended for use at the cemetery, but are not required. Unanimous.
