The Village Voice: Don't forget to vote Nov. 4

Early voting on the November ballot is underway in Ohio, and local citizens have a number of initiatives to consider. For more information on voting, issues and candidates, please visit the Hardin County Board of Elections website at http://co.hardin.oh.us/boe/.

Included on the ballot is a Village of Ada proposed municipal income tax renewal. This proposed levy is for a continuation of the current 0.15% levy on income tax, so it does not result in an increase in taxes. The stated purpose of the levy is for repairs, maintenance, operations and improvements at the Village of Ada’s swimming pool.

Village Voice: Main-Lima intersection closed on Thursday

The Village Voice: The reconstruction of East Lima Avenue continues to progress well. The crews have reached a point in construction where it is necessary to close South Main Street at the Lima Avenue intersection to allow the crews to safely work on paving.

This closure is planned to begin Thursday, Oct. 2. Detours will be posted for the area.

Please keep in mind your safety and the safety of the crews working. Do not move barricades or attempt to drive or walk through areas that have been marked as “closed.”

Village Voice: Another great Harvest and Herb Festival

Another great Harvest and Herb Festival filled Main Street on Saturday! Downtown Ada was full of people, festival food, vendors and of course, the parade. Ada certainly put its best face forward.

This year, the beautiful flower baskets on our decorative light poles in the Depot had a light shown on them during the Harvest and Herb Festival. Many people stopped by to admire the flower baskets and donate to the flower fund. We want to thank everyone for the appreciative words and donations to the fund!

Village Voice: Ada is the place to be this weekend

Ada is the place to be this weekend! On Saturday, Main Street comes alive the same way it does every September – the Harvest and Herb Festival hits the street. This Saturday is also Family Day at ONU, and ONU is encouraging family members to visit the community of Ada as part of the festivities. We’re not kidding; Ada is the place to be!

This weekend is a great time to show some of your Ada Pride! Please help us keep our community looking great. If you see trash on sidewalks, please pick it up and place it in the appropriate trash receptacle. If the sunshine prompts you to mow, make sure your grass clippings are not on the sidewalks or in the streets.

AEP contractors will start clearing tree limbs from utility lines

The Village has received notice that AEP will have contractors in the Village in three to six weeks to work on clearing tree limbs from utility lines. 

For this year’s work, trees that AEP contractors have marked with a yellow dot indicate tree trimming and trees marked with a red X indicate removal. The contractor will leave the wood for your use.

Utility line clearing is an important and necessary aspect for utility companies. By reducing the number of risks to electrical lines, utility companies can reduce the number of power outages.

Village Voice: Back-to-school means use your eyes and ears

Parents, teachers, and students know it’s about that time. Ada Schools resumed classes for the 2014-2015 school on Monday, August 18th. Ohio Northern undergraduate courses are scheduled to resume on Monday, August 25th.

Those involved in back to school activities have their to-do lists full. Those who aren’t directly involved in activities make think the bustle at this time of year have nothing to do with them.

But here are a few things for everyone to keep in mind:
