    Updates From Around the Village

    Capital Improvement Plan (CIP): On August 17th the Village Board adopted the 2018- 2022 CIP. The CIP is a list of the major expenditures the Village expects to save for or

    spend money on over the next five (5) years. Roads are the single largest expenditures in

    our annual CIP and budget . Next year, the Village intends to pave Mayfield Road from Pioneer Road south to Pleasant Hill Road and Monches Road from STH 164 to Plat Road.

    The cost of each one (1) mile stretch of road is approximately $355,000. As a part of this

    Plan, we also intend to save $212,000 towards the purchase of new vehicles in our fleet.

    Rather than borrow money to pay for plow trucks, patrol trucks, etc. we save an equal share of the vehicle’s cost for each year of its expected lifespan. This fiscally responsible

    approach assures that when vehicles come due or unexpected major mechanical failures

    occur, that we have the capital to pay for them.

    DPW Building: The Village recently signed an agreement for masonry repairs, the

    installation of control joints to help with building movement, and the exterior painting of the Village’s DPW Building. The building, constructed 19 years ago at a cost of

    approximately $600,000, has had limited masonry work preformed on it over the years

    and still has its original coat of blue paint on it. Repairs such as this are necessary to

    extend the life of this vital Village facility.

    Address Markers: On October 19th, the Board will continue their discussion on Village- wide address markers. During the month of August Trustees took up a request from the

    Richfield Volunteer Fire Company’s (RVFC) Board of Directors to consider the erection of

    these markers on properties throughout our community. The reasons cited by the RVFC

    are related to resident safety. Safety over insufficient mailbox markings, multiple mailbox groupings in residential subdivisions, non-sequential house numbering in some

    parts of the Village, shared driveway access points, and most importantly, increased

    efficiency and a reduction on emergency response times. In 2016, the RVFC responded to

    466 EMS calls and 121 fire calls.

    PASER Results: The Village’s engineer completed its biennial review of the condition of our 146 miles of road. Each segment of roadway is rated on a scale of 1-10, with 10 being

    classified as a newly constructed road. The results of the study showed approximately 40

    miles rated a 5 or worse needing repair and 46 miles rated at a 6, which is considered “Fair”. The Village Board referred these results to the CIP Subcommittee for review and


    Passing of former Town Chairman John Kohl: On August 16th, our community lost one

    of its proverbial icons. Next month the Village Board will be considering a resolution

    honoring his life and service to the community.

    Richfield Days: Thank you to the men and women who helped organize and volunteer

    their time and talents to make Richfield Days a huge success this year!

    Jim Healy, Village Administrator

  • Public Works Thinks Fall

    Winter will be here in no time and the Department of Public Works is already getting prepared! Currently, our Shop Foreman is

    checking plow trucks, installing wings and salters that have been removed for summer hauling and ensuring all equipment

    operates correctly. This work coincides with the day-to-day issues that pop-up. Regular maintenance such as oil changes and

    other general repairs to the fleet as well as the unexpected breakdowns that occur, keep the shop busy every day!

    Our Highway Crew has been busy with multiple projects such as ditch cleaning in areas that, over the years, have filled-in which

    has reduced flow of storm water in the ditch line. Several new cross culverts have also been installed along with continued

    shoulder work. Additionally, our Public Works team is in the process of coordinating with the Washington County Highway

    Department for crack sealing and to asphalt some areas too large for our staff to address alone. By working with the Washington

    County Highway Department, we can accomplish more results while maintaining our limited road budget. We are truly grateful

    for all the assistance the County has provided.

    Although the summer season is winding down, our Parks System continues to stay very busy! Fall baseball and soccer have

    begun, requiring weekly field prep and painting. Grading of the trail
