Aberdeen Council to go after delinquent income taxes


By Martha B. Jacob –

The Aberdeen Village Council signed a resolution at its March 16 meeting urging the Dayton Power and Light Company to continue operations of the J.M. Stuart Station and the Killen Generating Station in Adams County scheduled to be shut down by June 2018. It’s closure will have a devastating effect on Aberdeen’s economy with the loss of jobs.
The resolution was quickly signed by council and will be sent to DP&L, Governor Kasich’s office, and several other legislators and members of congress.
In other business at the meeting, council heard a report from fiscal officer Karen Campbell who had a list of items to bring before council including:
• after suspending the rules council adopted an resolution to amend appropriations to move funds from one line item to another;
• approve an ordinance allowing RITA (Regional Income Tax Agency) to collect income taxes for the village and enforce all income tax laws after suspending the three reading rule, RITA will also collect all past due accounts;
• members decided to table a decision on the right way to distribute utility deposits, after someone leaves the location;
• approved an increase in medical insurance for employees;
• cancel a village contract with the current municipal income tax collectors;
• permission was given for Campbell to attend an upcoming fiscal officer’s conference at a cost of $200 plus mileage;
• new insurance/and liability insurance which included new cards for the chief of police and the administrator for their vehicles,  at a cost of $35,367 which needed to be paid right away.
Aberdeen Mayor Jason Phillips commended the employees of the village for all their efforts in upgrading the council chambers.
“These guys got my call on Monday and they have worked really hard and quick and did a great job,” Mayor Phillips said. “They painted everything and put down new much needed carpeting. It really looks nice.”
Council also briefly discussed open burning of trash in the village which is not allowed. Also discussed were the memorial bricks which are still available by contacting the Aberdeen/Huntington Township Fire Department.
