Amelia village seeking new council member

The village of Amelia is selling 7.2 acres of surplus property located at 44 Oak Street.

Determining that it is not in the best interest of the village to retain the 7.2 acre parcel of property, council voted unanimously to authorize the advertisement and sale of the property at its regular meeting April 2.

“The property no longer serves any village purpose,” said Amelia mayor Mike Scharf. “Tonight, council has found that it will be beneficial to the village and the public to sell the this prime village real estate.”

According to the passed ordinance, the sale of the 7.2 acre parcel of property is conditioned upon the granting of right-of-way easements for the development of the proposed Village Parkway as a public road to the Amelia village.
