Moody’s Investor Services assigns MIG 1 to Johnstown, OH’s $1.25M Street Improvement GOLT BANs, Series 2014

As part of the Village’s Transportation Asset Management Plan, the Village will be issuing $2.5MM in future debt to finance the reconstruction of Concord Road, W. Jersey Street and S. Kasson Street as well as institute a pavement preservation plan. The first step in securing the debt was to be rated by Moody’s Investor Service. The past three years the Village has cut expenditures which has resulted in increased general fund balance. The increase in general fund balance was a factor in the Village receiving the highest rating (MIG 1) for our Bond Anticipation Notes (BAN). This designation denotes best quality. There is present strong protection by established cash flows, superior liquidity support or demonstrated broad-based access to the market for refinancing.

Public Notice: Hydrant flushing

Annual Hydrant Flushing Schedule for 2014

 

The Village of Johnstown Water Department will be flushing hydrants weekdays between the hours of 7am to 5pm through the month of September. 

 Hydrant flushing is an important preventative maintenance procedure that helps us to ensure that our hydrants are working properly and to remove accumulated sediment in the water mains.  Residents may notice lower than normal pressure, air in the lines or slight discoloration of water.  If you experience some discolored water, let the cold water tap run for a few minutes and it should clear up.

 

If a problem continues please call Patti Barlitt at 740-967-1139.
