MILLERSBURG -- Spring Clean Up Day will be Saturday May 20 from 8 a.m. to noon in the village of Millersburg, according to Village Administrator Nate Troyer.

"We have the dumpsters lined up and we'll have more information as we get closer to the date," Troyer said.

The village received two comparable proposals for mosquito spraying in 2017, and council voted to stay with the same company that has been doing the job for the past several years, Holmes Pest Control.

"We've been using Holmes pest," Troyer said. "We did use Bugs R Gone one year and then went back to Holmes Pest. We have had a lot less complaints with Holmes Pest over the years."

Holmes Pest Control will begin applications May 2, at $740 per application, the same price it charged last year. The service will run through October.

On April 28, Arbor Day, the Tree City Board will hold a tree planting day at Millersburg Elementary School where all the students will receive a seedling.

Troyer reports he has been working with Shaffer, Johnston and Lichtenwalter and Assoc., an engineering and surveying company in Mansfield. SJL has been authorized to complete the bid packs and specs for the 2017 street resurfacing project.

"We will get this to bid as soon as possible after review of the documents," Troyer said. "This is moving along quicker than I expected."

Troyer added that he is working on a time frame with Buckeye Sweeping to clean the state routes and downtown area streets. He hopes to start cleaning in mid-April to May, as the weather breaks.

Also, since the weather has stabilized, the village will get the water line installation and concrete pad at the entrance of the Pampered Paws Dog Park off Glen Drive.

The Design and Review Board will meet on April 5 to review a Certificate of Appropriateness application for HC Sports signage at 44 E. Jackson St.

The Planning and Zoning Committee will consider a lot split request by Habitat for Humanity for two lots on massillon Road.

"They have two lots side-by-side that run east-west, and they want to have them run north-south so they can utilize state Route 241," Troyer said.
