Pursuant to Article 3.06 Section (b), the Johnstown Village Council will meet on September 30th at 7:00pm in Village Council Chambers (599 S. Main Street) for the purpose of discussing the proposed charter amendment to allow collective bargaining and for the purpose of discussion of appointment of a finance director.
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.
Roadway Seal Update – The sealing of the roadways that was planned for Leafy Dell, Concord Crossing, Concord Crossing East and Rolling Meadows has been postponed due to the delays in pavement repair. We do not have a revised schedule at this time. Residents will be notified by door hanger once a schedule is determined. There is still restriction on on-street parking so that the cracks can be repaired.
