Flag Replacement Program


Flag Replacement Program

As you are displaying a U.S. flag at your home or business in Johnstown, you may possibly wish to take advantage of the “Flag Replacement Program” jointly offered by the Village of Johnstown and American Legion Post 254. At your request, American Legion Post 254 will provide a new flag to you for their cost (see current prices below). A post member will remove your old flag, replace it with the new flag at no additional charge, and Post 254 will properly dispose of the old one.

Do NOT contact the American Legion directly; the village will coordinate with the Legion and arrange for a Legion member to call you and schedule a convenient time to get your new flag to you. Payment to Post 254 for your flag will be due when the flag is delivered. To place your order for a new flag contact:

Village of Johnstown
599 S. Main Street
PO Box 457
Johnstown, Ohio 43031
Telephone: 740-967-3177

Current prices as of August 2012 for Polyester Outdoor flags that are made in the USA are:

3’ x 5’    $21.00                 4’ x 6’    $26.00
Larger sizes also available (ordered upon request)

A copy of U.S. flag etiquette will also be supplied at no additional charge.

Thank you,

URGENT: Information Regarding Water & Sewer Rate/Infrastructure

I have been made aware of reports of our water and sewer infrastructure failing. I want to assure our residents that our infrastructure is not failing and we continue to invest in our infrastructure to ensure we get the longest life possible. Our water and sewer rates are evaluated on a yearly basis as part of our annual budget process which begins in the fall. Our rates have remained steady over the past few years and we believe they will continue to do so in the immediate future. If you have any concerns or source of this incorrect information, I would ask that you contact me at jlenner@villageofjohnstown.org or 740-967-3177 ext 2.

Sincerely,
Jim Lenner

Village Manager

Prescription Drug Take-Back Day Scheduled for April 27, 2013

Prescription Drug Take-Back Day 
Scheduled for April 27, 2013 
10AM-2PM 

The Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) is spearheading a nationwide Drug Take-Back event for Saturday, April 27, 2013, from 10:00am – 2:00pm. Called the “National Take-Back Day”, this event provides an opportunity for the public to surrender expired, unwanted, or unused pharmaceutical controlled substances and other medications to law enforcement officers for destruction.

The Village of Johnstown Police Department and several organizations throughout Licking County are helping to coordinate this effort. There will be several collection sites throughout Licking County on the day of this event including the Johnstown Municipal Building (599 S. Main Street). Other locations include:

Pataskala-Pataskala Police Department, 430 S. Main St.

Newark-Kohl’s Parking Lot, 1041 Mount Vernon Rd.

Heath-Best Buy Parking Lot, 701 Hebron Rd. 

Medicines play an important role in treating certain health conditions and diseases, but they must be disposed of with care to avoid harming the environment. The Village of Johnstown supports efforts to ensure the safe and secure disposal of unused, unwanted, or expired medications.

  • Do not flush medications down the toilet or drain
  • Do not throw medications away in the trash

Instead, the public should take advantage of pharmaceutical “take-back” programs.

Controlled, non-controlled, and over-the-counter medications will be collected. Liquid products and creams in its containers will be accepted. Sharps and syringes will not be accepted due to the potential hazard posed by blood-borne pathogens.

This program is absolutely anonymous and all efforts will be made to protect the anonymity of individuals disposing of medications. No questions or requests for identification will be made by law enforcement personnel present. Participants should remove any personal information from bottles or packages that contain pills/capsules and liquids and place the bottles or packages into the disposal box.
