South Point moves to apply for water design loans

Dumpster set up for collection

SOUTH POINT — The village of South Point passed a resolution authorizing the application for $96,360 in loans from the Ohio Department of Environmental Protection for a water design project.

Mayor Jeff Gaskin said he was signing the application on Wednesday, the day after the council meeting, which took place at the South Point Community Center.

The village has been seeking to replace its aging water system for some time, which dates back several decades.

In May, the council approved two design contracts for water line replacements.

Gaskin said the village will also be setting up a dumpster next week on the police impound lot, in order to collect items from the public, as the spring clean up did not take place this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the workload on village employees.

Gaskin said the dumpster will be available to the public Monday through Friday from 8 a.m.-noon and Saturday, from 9 a.m.-noon.

Gaskin said tires, paint, demolition materials, gas tanks and liquids will not be accepted. Those dropping off must show proof a residency and a water bill is preferred, he said.
