WINTERSVILLE - Robert "Red" Nottingham has been involved in the village for as long as Mayor Bob Gale can remember.
Nottingham has served on the village police department, been elected as a member of Village Council and is a current trustee in Cross Creek Township.
For his dedication and hard work, Nottingham was awarded the 2011 Frank P. Layman Lifetime Achievement award during a recent council meeting.
"This award is given to people who have showed outstanding service to the village over the years," Gale remarked.
"Red lives a life of service and dedication to his community and the residents of both Wintersville and Cross Creek Township."
Councilman Robbie Martin congratulated Nottingham on his award.
"You are a great pillar for our community, and I am really glad to see you earn this award," Martin said.
In other matters, the 2011 paving project was discussed. Village Administrator Walt Ziemba told council members that Lash Paving was the lowest bidder for the project. Council approved awarding the bid to Lash.
"The project will begin as soon as we get a contract together and the weather decides to cooperate," Ziemba noted.
He planned to attend a Brooke-Hancock-Jefferson Metropolitan Planning Commission to deliver a letter concerning Fernwood Road.
"We asked that it be placed on the federal aid secondary system, which would allow us to obtain federal funding through the Ohio Department of Transportation," Ziemba said. "We will use the funds to replace curbs, improve drainage and resurface the street."
Gale said the village's annual spring cleanup will be held each Monday in June. Cleanup for residents whose normal garbage collection day is Tuesday will be June 6. Those whose scheduled garbage collection day is Wednesday will participate on June 13, those whose normal collection day is Thursday will participate on June 20, and those who normal collection day is Friday will participate on June 27.
In other action:
Gale announced village offices will be closed Monday in observation of Memorial Day. There will be no change in sanitation.
The next council meeting will be at 7 p.m. June 2.
