Mr. Maurer said that if you were fortunate enough to make it down to the Memorial Day Observance at the Military Honor Roll, he took a rough count and came up with about 450 people not including the band.  He said we had a real nice turnout.  One of our middle school math teachers is a Lt. Colonel in the Marine Corp. and he gave very nice and very moving speech.  He said it was a very nice observance/tribute to the men and women who have served this Nation.  Mr. Maurer said the nice thing about the Honor Roll is a lot of people came home to read their own names. He said it is not really a memorial.  He stated that everyone who did pay the price is also listed with a special designation.  He said it is very hard to keep a dry eye when they fire the salute over the lake and play taps. 

Mr. Maurer said that those on the East Side received their trash cans today.  He stated that Mr. Palmer said they all should be distributed by the end of the week. 

Mr. Megyes said that Friday will be Art At The Farm, at the O.C. Barber Pig Barn.  The time is 5:00 – 8:00 pm.  He said that Rich Mueller will have a few pieces as well as himself.

Mr. Megyes said that Saturday, June 1st is Day of Play.  It will be at Tuscarawas, Edgewood, and Avilee Parks from 12:00 – 3:00. 

Mr. Stefan would also like to congratulate Mrs. Debevec’s DI team.  He said that 5th place is great when you are talking about out of the world, however, it is more important that they are teaching the kids how to give back.  Mrs. Debevec’s team was the first team, since they came out with the new challenge to take this on in Barberton.  He stated that her and her husband do a fantastic job with it.  It said what it is that they raise money and they raise food for the people of our community that need it.  The accolades are great, the medals are great, and the experience for the kids are great but more so than that is the great leaders like Carla and her husband and the rest of their team.  The parents that participate are the ones that are giving back to our community and are teaching the kids how to do that.  Mr. Stefan said he would again like to say how great a job they do and it is more than just a competition thing, it’s the showing the kids exactly what we should do and that is take care of our community and those that need it. 

Mr. Maurer then said it is quite accurate.  He said if you do teach the kids young to be civically responsible, that they will be the rest of their lives. 

 

COMMUNICATION FROM THE MAYOR

Mr. Judge introduced Mr. Michael Kimble, our new HR/Safety Director.  He stated that today was his first day so if you have any questions or concerns you can contact him. 

Mr. Judge reported that the DI Teams that went to Tennessee; 3rd grade team took 12th in the world out of 55 teams, 8th grade team was 5th out of 70 teams.  He also said he would like to thank everyone especially Carla for all of the work that she puts into it.  He said this shows what our kids our capable of.  Carla stated the other team had a little problem but they worked through it and finished their task. 

Mr. Judge said that they received confirmation back on two grants that were applied for.  The first one is the Action Community’s Grant, which is the Van Buren/Snyder Avenue new bridge and the 2nd Street area of the tow path.  Out of 10 applications to AMATS, we were number 1.  We will receive about $50,000.00 to conduct a study.  He stated that the nice thing about this is once AMATS funds a grant study they are more than likely to reapply for funds to carry that study through to get everything going.

Mr. Judge also said we heard back from the State on Mr. Stefan’s and the Planning Commission’s/Planning Department’s Safe Route for Schools grant.  He stated they applied for $500,000.00 and that we received $226,000.00.  He said they only funded 1/3 of the applications, so this is great news.  This will go toward a new traffic light on Robinson Avenue. 

Mr. Judge said that last week we had our change for change for the month of May.  We received over $460.00 for the free clinic.  He thanked everyone who showed up.

Mr. Judge said on Saturday, May 25th, we had the charity basketball game against Alcoa.  He said that once again we beat them so the trophy comes back home where it belongs.  He said they raised over $4,400 for the Valor House which is a non-profit improvised housing for veterans in Summit County. 

Mr. Judge said that the roof project for the Weigand and Magical Theatre will start tomorrow so parking will be limited. 

Mr. Judge stated that he would like to thank the Kiwanis and everyone that was involved with the Gazebo project.  It has been since 1982 that a construction of this size/magnitude has taken place.  Mr. Avant, Mr. Mueller, Shane, Mr. Carpenter and anyone that has been involved – Mr. Judge would like to thank.  He stated that if you haven’t seen it you need to stop down.  He said that Mr. Maurer brought up weddings – they had their 1st wedding Saturday.
