HUBER HEIGHTS —The Huber Heights City Council Monday night approved a resolution authorizing the City Manager to enter a lease agreement with the Huber Heights Chamber of Commerce for the rental of the Thomas Cloud Park house located at 4704 Brandt Pike.
City Manager James Borland said that since the city acquired Cloud Park, that it has been looking for a use for the house located in the park. He said it is a beautiful house and wanted to make sure it wasn’t destroyed. He said that as part of the lease with the Chamber, they would be able to sublease a section of the house only to the Wayne Township/Huber Heights Historical Society. The groups would maintain the inside of the house. He said these groups would be responsible for the utilities.
“It’s the best option for everybody,” said Borland.
Council member Judy Blankenship said this arrangement “was a good fit.”
Council approved a resolution authorizing the City Manager to solicit requests for proposals from trash hauling firms to service the residential areas of the city of Huber Heights. Borland said the city has had numerous meetings related to having one trash hauler for the city with input from citizens and staff and some outside sources. He said the requests for proposals to the trash hauling companies will have a lot of options to it. He said after these are returned, there would be another public meeting to show the cost and options to Council. He said at that time, Council could choose the lowest cost and best hauler or they could do away with all the proposals and start over fresh.
Council member Ed Lyons said Council had been working on this possibility since spring.
In other business, Council appointed Mark Campbell as the Vice Mayor for 2013. They also appointed Scott P. Falkowski as Assistant City Manager.
