NORTH BALTIMORE — North Baltimore Council on Tuesday approved the replacement of two clarifiers at the water treatment plant.

Council will spend $120,000 to replace the clarifiers after problems occurred with their gears, village officials said.

Separately, council will seek clarification on its responsibility for its share of a public works grant to renovate the 200 block of North Main Street.

The price tag for the village’s share has increased by $30,000 to reach $162,000, and council wanted to know where this amount would come from in its budget.

The Ohio Public Works Commission will provide $175,000 for road and sidewalk replacement there.

In other business, council:

• Hired Chad Smith as a part-time advanced EMT.

• Heard a pitch to have an energy conservation program enacted for municipal buildings.
