SALINEVILLE - Salineville Assembly of God Church is sponsoring a Classic Car Show on Saturday, with proceeds to benefit the three volunteer fire departments that serve the Salineville Area.
Pastor Rodney Ohler told the village council on Monday the car show will be 1 to 8 p.m. The rain date is Sept. 22.
Dinner will be served all day long. There is no admission charge, and no entry fee for participants. Donations will be accepted for the fire departments in Salineville, Highlandtown and Summitville. Cars will be judged and participants will receive dash plaques, Ohler said. Winners will be announced around 5 p.m.
Ohler said the church just wanted to do something to help the area volunteer fire departments pay for the equipment and training they need.
In other business, Mayor Mary Smith said she and other village officials are preparing for the county budget hearing Sept. 25 and 26. She said the 2013 budget will be available for review at the council's next regular meeting, 7 p.m. Monday.
The council took some steps to begin to correct administrative areas cited in the recent state audit, approving a contract with Huntington Bank as its official depository. The village had not had a five-year agreement for a bank to serve as depository, which is required by state law.
Auditors noted, however that the Huntington Bank offices are the only bank offices in the village.
Smith noted the contract allows the village to end the agreement at any time, but with a 30-day notice.
Member Tom Hays made the motion for the contract with Huntington Bank.
The council also approved a cruiser use agreement drawn up by Atty. Andy Beech, village solicitor. The agreement is for use of cruisers when contractors come into town and need police help with flagging and other traffic control.
Smith noted the agreement takes care of another issue cited by auditors. In some previous cases where village police cruisers were used to assist with flagging and other traffic control in construction zones, there were no records kept at village hall about the use of cruisers, or the hours worked by village police officers.
The cruiser agreement is only related to use of the vehicles, not the time any officers would work, Smith said. The agreement is for a minimum of $10 per hour for use of the cruisers.
Smith noted any officers working to assist contractors in such a manner will be in uniform and use the cruisers, but will do so when they are not scheduled to work for the village. They will not be on the village payroll at the time they are being paid for their services by contractors, she said.
