HUBER HEIGHTS — Huber Heights City Council moved to wrap up this year’s sidewalk improvement work at Monday night’s council meeting.

Council unanimously passed by emergency vote special assessments for the 2016 sidewalk program. Homeowners affected by this year’s work have until Sept. 2 to make payment arrangements if they don’t want to pay for the improvements by tax assessments.

Mayor Tom McMasters and City Manager Robert Schommer also discussed plans for getting information to residents about the issues on the November ballot. Information will be sent out with water bills as well as through a direct mailing and will be available on the city’s website.

Council also acted on the following issues:

  • Passed to third reading changes in the city’s contract with Pickrel, Schaeffer and Ebeling Co. for legal services. The changes reflect recent changes in the rules of council.
  • Approved an amendment to the city’s revised public records policy and passed the ordinance to a third reading.
  • Passed to second reading a resolution authorizing the city manager to enter into a contract with a consultant for a city-wide opt-out electricity aggregation program. The program would allow the city to place residents who want to participate into a group to negotiate better utility prices.
