Council met in Regular Session at 6:00 p.m. with the following members present: Mayor Church, Councilmembers Clark, Collins, Colvin, McCabe, Nicholas, Stalder and Thompson.


Motion was made by Colvin, seconded by Nicholas to accept the minutes of the Regular Session on July 18, 2017, as distributed.  Motion carried.


Mayor Church opened the Citizen Forum and asked anyone present who wished to discuss an item not appearing on the agenda to come forward. 

            Fred Peckholt, 57 N Main Street, stated that he commended the citizens who came to the July 18, 2017, meeting.  Their concern at that meeting was a drug rehab program being established at the vacant church at the corner of Buckeye and Fourth Street.  Mr. Peckholt said that took courage.  He himself sees nothing wrong with the program as long as there is no overnight housing.  He feels that the answer to the drug problem is apprehending the drug dealers which is going well with law enforcement.

            Emmett Krueger, 603 Overland Trail, feels that the water tower near his home needs painting badly.  City Manager Johnson stated that the new paint is included in the current $70 million project and should be good for 15 years.  Mr. Krueger is also concerned that the street lights across the Linden Bridge are rusting.  His last concern was about a property across from 624 Linden Avenue that has a flat roof on which are tires.  This would be a good breeding ground for the mosquitos that carry the West Nile virus.  Mayor Church thanked Mr. Krueger for bringing these concerns to Councilís attention.


There were no further comments and the Forum was closed.


Motion was made by Nicholas, seconded by Thompson not to request a hearing for the new liquor license for Plaza Theatre Association, dba Plaza Theatre, 33 S Main Street, Miamisburg.  Motion carried.


Motion was made by Colvin, seconded by McCabe not to request a hearing for the transfer liquor license for CEC Entertainment Inc., dba Chuck E Cheeses, 30 Prestige Plaza, Miamisburg.  Motion carried.
