Village reimbursed for storm

CRIDERSVILLE — Cridersville Village Council took time to approve resolutions during its August council meeting held Monday night.

Looking back to the storm, deemed by the state a microburst, that hit last summer the village was pleasantly surprised when a reimbursement check was received from the state of Ohio for the costs of damages to the village and emergency assistance from the fire department.

As explained by Candy Stevely, village clerk-treasurer, Resolution 2244 deals with the appropriations of funds received from the state.

“We didn’t know we were going to get those, so now we need to appropriate these funds to be taken out of the FEMA account,” Stevely said.

With a total of $20,781 the state reimbursed the village for 75 percent of the cost of damages caused during the storm referred to by the village as a tornado. According to Village Administrator Jarid Kohlrieser, the originally amount was to be for 60 percent.
