The South Central Hilltop Spring Cleanup has returned. On

May 1, hundreds of volunteers came out to Sullivant Avenue

to pick up trash and other debris along the thoroughfare and

its connector streets near Burroughs Elementary School.

Event organizer Lisa Boggs said the cleanup was established

19 years ago as a way to bring about unity within the community.

“It goes alongside our message that we are all in this

together and that good things can happen if we work together.”

Doing a good thing here (top right) is Edward Davis, 8,

who is using a grabber to pick up two empty plastic water bottles

at Burroughs Park. Davis, a resident of the westside, was

there with his mother, Anndrea Judd.

Bottom right, Grove City resident Nicole Mavromatis and her

son, Mason Buck, 13, share their found “goods” near this

closed business.

Below, Mike Minnix (standing), Miles Minnix (perched above),

and Melissa Green are prepared to clean up the streets. Mike

said his son would only be participating in the capacity as a

“morale booster.”

Hilltop nuisance

property shut down

On May 11, Columbus City Attorney

Zach Klein announced that the city of

Columbus secured a temporary restraining

order to shut down a Hilltop residence

located one block north of West Broad

Street. It’s the 10th drug-related nuisance

property the city has boarded up in police

zone three on the westside this year.

Klein filed a complaint for preliminary

and permanent injunctive relief in the

Franklin County Environmental Court

against 135 North Burgess Ave. After the

initial filing, the owner of the property

entered into negotiation with the city

“These residents deserve to live in safe neighborhoods

these with such egregious, violent criminal activity.”

Failed levy for Franklin Township police

Prairie Township Summer Jobs Program

Prairie Township is seeking a limited number of

students that live in the township to participate in its

2021 Summer Jobs Program.

This is an eight-week program that will begin on

June 16 and run through Aug. 12. Eligible students

are those that reside in Prairie Township, are at least

14 years of age and have completed grades 8, 9, 10 or

11 during the 2020/21 school year.

Students who participate in this year’s program will

be working at the Prairie Township Community

around the westside

Residents in Franklin Township overwhelmingly

rejected a proposed police levy on the primary ballot,

held on May 4.

According to the unofficial results from the

Franklin County Board of Elections, the levy failed

with 66.43 percent voting against the measure.

The 7.37-mill continuing additional tax levy for the

Franklin Township Police Department would have cost

taxpayers $737 a year per $100,000 home valuation.

“It would have cost roughly an extra $13 per

$100,000 of value, once the timed levy would have been

rescinded,” said Mark Potts, township administrator.

The levy would have replaced a five-year timed levy

the township current has that is set to expire at the

end of 2022, said Franklin Township Police Chief

Byron Smith.

The board debated weather to ask for a permanent

or timed levy and when to ask taxpayers for this. In

November 2020, the township received approval from

taxpayers for a 5.89-mill replacement fire levy, so

there were concerns about asking voters for back-toback

levies. This is the second levy the township asked

for in a two-year period.

Smith said he wanted to present the levy to voters

sooner rather than later in case it failed. This gives the

department several more times to present the levy

before it expires.

Franklin Township trustees John Fleshman and

Ralph Horn agreed with this strategy.

“We work for the people of Franklin Township and

we wanted to present all options to them and let them

decide what they want their police department to look

like,” Fleshman said. “By presenting a permanent levy

now, we can see what the public thinks and if they

don’t support it then we know what they are comfortable

with.”

Fleshman said a permanent levy would have helped

the township plan more long term for the police

department and not have to go back to the voters every

four years for a renewal.

If it were approved, the levy would have generated

over an additional million dollars for the department.

However, the current timed levy the department has

would have gone away.

“According to the auditor’s certificate, it would have

collected $1.4 million based on the current valuation,”

Potts said.

The department currently also has two other permanent

levies it collects from township taxpayers.

Those two levies bring in approximately $700,000 a

year for the department.

The funds from the levy would have been used for

operational expenses, including paying for salary,

equipment and other department needs.

Smith recently said if the levy didn’t pass, they will

not only not be able to proactively investigate issues

like drug trafficking, robberies and other felony offenses,

they also will lose about half of their current staff.

“We will lose a minimum of five officers,” he said.

“We also will only be able to take priority runs and

won’t be able to focus on the drug houses or other crime

in the region.”

Currently, the department has 10 full-time and two

part-time officers, including the chief. They typically

have 13 full-time and six part-time officers.

Fleshman said while he supports permanent levies,

if the residents of Franklin Township prefer timed

levies, they need to consider that going forward.

“We need to listen to what our residents are telling

us,” Fleshman said. “If they keep rejecting permanent

levies and are more comfortable with timed levies, we

need to respect that.”

During the week of April 12, detectives from the

investigative/tactical unit executed a search warrant

and seized more than 200 grams of methamphetamine,

cocaine, and other drugs, as well as three semi-automatic

weapons and close to $1,400 in cash.

“It’s unfortunate that the conditions at this property

deteriorated to such an extent that we had to file a

complaint with the court, but this is an instance where

the property owner eventually agreed to work with us,”

said Assistant City Attorney Zach Gwin, who is the

zone initiative attorney for the city’s westside. “We

hope that he’ll continue to negotiate in good faith to

find a permanent solution that brings his property

back into compliance and protects the health, safety,

and well-being of the neighborhood.”

This is a mock-up of the design that will be painted on the Wilson Road retaining wall.

The design is the collaborating artist’s vision of what Delivering Black Dreams means

to them. It is meant to inspire and empower the youth.

“Deliver Black Dreams”

mural comes to Hilltop

By Josephine Birdsell

Staff Writer

The Greater Columbus Arts Council is

bringing its project “Deliver Black Dreams”

to the Hilltop.

The announcement was made May 4 at

the Greater Hilltop Area Commission

meeting.

Through Deliver Black Dreams, the

council is painting murals across the city

that deliver positive messages to the city’s

youth. The project was inspired by the

street art that was painted on boarded up

storefronts in downtown Columbus last

summer, following protests of George

Floyd’s murder.

The Greater Columbus Arts Council

aims to bring hope to the city.

“Deliver Black Dreams is looking at all

the things that make a healthy community.

Art is the piece that brings it all together,”

said Lisa McLymont, project director.

The project includes a mural in the

Hilltop. It features two cartoon children,

posing in front of the city skyline. The

mural includes a black background with

dotted line designs that mimic stitching on

a quilt. On top, the mural reads “Write it,

American Red Cross volunteers will

Sound the Alarm in Columbus as part of a

national effort to educate 100,000 people

about home fire safety in high-risk neighborhoods

this spring. Columbus area residents

are encouraged to call 844-207-4509

to request a virtual education appointment

and referral to partner agency for installation

of free smoke alarms.

“Home fires remain the most frequent

disaster, yet most of us don’t realize we

have just two minutes to safely escape,”

said Cory Paul, executive director of the

Greater Columbus Ohio Chapter. “Our volunteers

can help residents create personal

home fire escape plans and provide them

Paint it, Do it” in bold white lettering.

The design is “talking to the youth in

the community who are very impacted (by

racism) but probably don’t get many opportunities

to talk about what’s happening in

the world with race, the pandemic, and

other things. This is a hopeful message to

encourage families to create, talk and

share,” McLymont said.

The mural is to be painted on a bridge’s

retaining wall on North Wilson Road, just

south of Fisher Road. The mural will be

painted this summer. The council estimates

that it will take roughly 10 days to

paint the mural, during which a portion of

North Wilson Road will be closed.

The council plans to power wash the

wall, get rid of existing vegetation on the

wall, paint and apply an anti-graffiti coat

to the wall, which will allow them to easily

clean potential graffiti off the mural.

The arts council will offer volunteer

opportunities to Hilltop community members

who want to be involved in the project.

“We want to put Columbus on the map

for something positive,” said Jami

Goldstein, vice president of marketing for

the Greater Columbus Arts Council.

protect themselves from these everyday

disasters.”

Central Ohio residents are also encouraged

to visit SoundTheAlarm.org and

pledge to prepare against home fires.

Sound the Alarm is part of a larger

Home Fire Campaign. Since launching the

campaign in 2014, the Red Cross has

helped save 864 lives across the country by

helping families create escape plans and

installing free smoke alarms. This critical

work is made possible with our partners,

who have helped make more than 900,000

households safer in at-risk communities.

Treasurer shares financial concerns with board

By Dedra Cordle

Staff Writer

South-Western City School officials say

the financial outlook of the district remains

stable, but there will be things that need to

be monitored down the road.

According to Treasurer Hugh Garside,

the district’s expenditures will likely begin

to surpass its revenue at the end of fiscal

year 2022. He told the board of education,

at its meeting on May 10, that it is a trend

that is projected to increase steadily

throughout the duration of the five-year

forecast.

He said that while it is always a cause

for concern when a district’s expenditures

outpace its revenue, what will help the district

is that it is projected to maintain positive

cash balances through fiscal year

2025.

“We’ve always talked about how our

cash balances needed to be on target for

three to six months of active operating

expenditures and we’re well within those

targets in this forecast,” said Garside.

However, he added that while the district

will have those positive cash balances,

the expenditures outpacing the revenue is

something that the district is going to have

to watch out for in the future.

To quell any panic that may have been

rising with the board or the listening public,

Garside mentioned that when he makes

the projections for the five-year forecast,

which is a hypothetical representation of a

district’s financial future based on historical

trends and known facts, he does so in a

conservative manner as a way to mitigate

unwanted surprises.

“I do expect the revenue to come in a little

bit higher, and I do expect our expenditures

to be a little bit lower, so that will

improve our overall financial situation,” he

said.

The biggest expense of the district

comes from personnel services, which consist

of salaries and wages for its administrators,

educators, and support staff. The

forecast has accounted for negotiated base

salary increases of 2.5 percent for its union

groups, and the health insurance funding

levels will increase by 1.5 percent to keep

up with health and prescription costs. In

No bean dinner in 2021

According to officials with the Hilltop

Business Association, there will not be a

bean dinner in 2021. Due to the uncertainty

with COVID-19 restrictions, the organization

did not have time to properly plan

for the annual summer event on the westside.

The HBA plans to host the 2022

Hilltop Bean Dinner on the fourth

Saturday in June.

Historical Society is in the process of

news and notes

future years, trend increases of roughly 10

percent are factored into the health insurance

premiums from fiscal year 2021-22

through 2024-25.

The district will also be spending more

to purchase additional computers and textbooks,

along with any technological

upgrades that are needed. It is estimated

the district will spend between $1.8 and

$2.7 million annually to implement its

technology replacement cycle.

While the district spent 21 percent less

in fuel expenses during the COVID-19 pandemic,

Garside expects those numbers will

rise again in the future. Fuel makes up

roughly one-fifth of the overall supplies

and materials budget. Every 30 cent

increase in the price per gallon of fuel represents

roughly $130,000 in increased cost

annually.

According to forecast projections, the

district’s expenditures will be $292 million

in 2022, $306.7 million in 2023, $322 million

in 2024 and $337 million in 2025.

The district’s revenue is projected to

grow but at a slower pace. Garside said

roughly 56 percent of its overall revenue is

provided by the state. He believes the district

is likely to see an increase in dollars

when the state’s biennial budget is

approved later this year but is most interested

in the Fair School Funding Plan that

is making its way through the state legislature.

Should the funding plan — which would

change the way state aid is calculated and

distributed to public schools — be approved,

the district could receive upward of $32

million more in state aid due to its demographics

and size. The district currently

receives roughly $125 million in state aid.

Garside said he will have a more solid

picture of the district’s future revenue

regarding the state’s plans while preparing

the five-year forecast in October.

The Franklin County Auditor recently

completed its triennial update for property

values. According to the auditor’s website,

there was a median value increase of 20

percent for residential properties and 15

percent for commercial and industrial

properties. Garside said the triennial

update increased overall property values

they will likely see some delinquent collections

According to the forecast’s projections,

the district’s revenue will be $280.2 million

in 2022, $280.57 million in 2023, $280.74

million in 2024, and $280.72 million in

2025.

As for the cash balance, the forecast projections

show the district will have $237.9

In early May, Columbus Mayor Andrew Ginther joined

community partners to announce several programs and

resources for central Ohio youth to keep them safe,

healthy, active and engaged during the summer. From violence

prevention to sports, employment and skills training,

all programs are designed to provide constructive outlets

for safe and healthy activities while supporting children

and families as they plan for the end of the school year.

“We are excited to be making these unprecedented

investments in our city’s youth to help them gain back

some of what they have lost throughout this challenging

year,” said Ginther.

As part of several ongoing initiatives to curb violent

crime in Columbus — particularly incidents involving

youth as victims and assailants — the city is committed to

equipping at-risk youth with the skills and strategies

needed to de-escalate violent situations and lay the foundation

for a successful future, such as through the

Applications for Purpose, Pride and Success (APPS) program,

which is administered by the Columbus Recreation

and Parks Department (CRPD).

Ginther also discussed the following:

• Summer Camps: Children may register to attend

CRPD day camps featuring a variety of subjects and interests,

including arts, fitness, sports, science/STEM,

outdoor exploration and adaptive recreation. Local

community centers will also host other activities

and programs for children of all ages. The summer

session runs June 1 through August 20.

• Late Night Basketball: In partnership with

the Columbus Divisions of Police and Fire, CRPD

will offer this free program for children and young

www.columbusmessenger.com

City implements summer programs to keep kids safe and engaged

adults ages 12 through 30 at participating community

centers June 7 through July 30.

• Go, Lunch!: This CRPD-led program provides

free, nutritionally balanced meals to anyone

between the ages of 1 and 18. Meals are also available

for those between the ages of 18 and 21 who

have been determined by a state or local public

educational agency to be mentally or physically disabled

and involved in an independent education

program. Dates and times vary.

• CRPD is waiving admission fees for entry to

city pools. Due to COVID-19-related capacity limits,

residents will be required to register in advance to

ensure a spot.

• CRPD is hiring more than 200 seasonal staff members.

• Earth Service Corps: The city’s Department of Public

Service and the YMCA of Central Ohio are teaming up to

employ 400 16 to 24 year olds to clean up litter in

Columbus neighborhoods. Participants will receive soft

skills training and a daily lunch.

• Peer Education Program expansion: A collaboration

between CelebrateOne and Planned Parenthood’s Ohio

Center for Sex Education, this evidence-based prevention

curriculum will expand to enroll 50 participants between

the ages of 14 and 18 to become Peer Educators and disseminate

sexual health information to help prevent unintended

pregnancies, reduce sexually transmitted infections

and address unique health issues and disparities.

Peer Educators are paid stipends for their service.

• Summer Youth Workforce and Career Development

Program: Facilitated by the Ohio Center for Sex Education

and Nationwide Children’s Hospital, CelebrateOne will

recruit an additional 50 youth ages 14 to 19 to enroll in an

eight-week paid summer fellowship in which participants

learn life and work skills alongside experienced health

care professionals and become positive health messengers

in their neighborhoods and communities.

The Workforce Development Board of Central Ohio is

also helping to connect young people with jobs — and

employers who are interested in hiring young people this

summer.

On May 4, dozens of Star Wars fans

across the west and southwest quadrant

of our local galaxy descended upon the

Columbia Heights United Methodist

Church in Galloway to partake in its

annual “May the Fourth be with You” festivities.

Limited in scope last year to

slow the spread of COVID-19, the popular

event was able to expand the number

of attendees and the number of in-person

activities for fans of the universe. “It

has been so nice to see so many people

engaged this year,” said Duane McVay, a

life group leader at the church who

established the event in 2016. The theme

for this year was “The Battle of Good vs.

Evil” but Stormtrooper Ella Gallebo (pictured

second from the left) was to get

along with Yoda, Chewbacca, and her

mother Brandi (who was sporting a BB-

8 Disney hat) for a quick photo op. The

12-year-old resident of Galloway said

she likes the aesthetic of the

Stormtroopers and their “cool blasters.”

Pet Corner

Pets of the week

Noi is about 3

months old and is the

smallest one in her

family but she

doesn’t let anyone

push her around. She

is fast and nimble,

especially when

she’s going after a

toy. Don’t let her permanently

furrowed brow fool you. She enjoys

getting tucked into a sweatshirt when she’s

feeling cuddly. Noi and her three siblings are

now at the Colony Cats Adoption Center and

available for adoption.

FYI: www.colonycats.org

Alaska is a shy girl

when she first meets

you but once she

warms up, she will

strut around your

home exploring every

nook and cranny. Her

biggest joys in life are

food and toys. Both

are an easy way into

Alaska’s heart. Alaska is the definition of a

curious cat. Stop by and meet her at the Pet

Supplies Plus, located on Soldano Drive in

the Consumer Square West Shopping Center.

She is up for adoption through Colony Cats.

FYI: www.colonycats.org

Hope is a sweet girl

who is waiting

patiently for her furever

home. This girl is

about 8 months old

and she loves to cuddle.

Hope can be a little

shy but should

warm up in a short

amount of time. She

is up for adoption

through Friends for

Life Animal Haven.

Fostering program adopted at FCDS

The Franklin County Dog Shelter and Adoption

Center will begin offering individuals in Franklin

County the opportunity to foster shelter dogs while

they are still available for direct adoption. While fostering

a dog, it is possible to learn more about how that

dog will act in a home setting, increase the dog’s network

of potential adopters, and give them time out of

the shelter to decompress. Many dogs enter the shelter

as stray dogs, so virtually nothing is known about

them. Foster homes provide the opportunity to learn

important details about dogs in the shelter’s care.

“Fostering is an important and rewarding experience,”

said Kaye Persinger, director of the Franklin

County Dog Shelter. “We don’t know the history of so

many dogs in our care, and foster families can help fillin

the blanks, letting us know how these dogs will

behave around people, children, other dogs and pets,

and how they generally exist in a home setting.”

Thee dogs also become Instagram and Facebook

stars, and the shelter can learn information that will

help find the dog their perfect forever home.

“The shelter has been working on our foster program

for months and we are excited to welcome interested

parties to join with us in support of the dogs in

our care,” said Persinger.

Those interested in learning more about the program,

and possibly participating, should visit the shelter

website, www.franklincountydogs.com. To speak to

someone directly about the program, email

foster@franklincountyohio.gov.

The shelter is beginning the program by offering

long-term resident dogs (at the shelter for over a

month) initially to interested homes. Foster candidates

at the shelter include both dogs with medical

issues and those who would benefit from time outside

the shelter environment.

July 1 is deadline for getting a dog license

Franklin County Auditor Michael

Stinziano announced an extension of the

dog licensing deadline. The new deadline,

based on COVID-19 relief passed by the

General Assembly, is July 1.

These furry friends are available

for adoption at local

rescues and shelters

Lily is an 8-year-old

beagle mix who is a

bit shy. She has been

quiet and reserved at

the Franklin County

Dog Shelter but may

come out of her shell

in a new environment.

Lily is looking for a

nice, quiet forever

family. Make an

appointment to meet

her today.

FYI: www.franklincountydogs.com

Dobby is a 4-year-old pitbull who is a total goofball. He is a fun-loving,

happy-all-the-time, glass-is-half-full kind of dog looking for someone

who loves to laugh and play around. Must have a great sense of humor

and a bunch of tennis balls. Dobby is up for adoption at the Franklin

County Dog Shelter. Schedule an appointment to meet him.

FYI: www.franklincountydogs.com

This extension will allow dog owners

more time to purchase or renew a license

without a penalty.

Dog licenses can be purchased online at

doglicense.franklincountyohio.gov.
