Norwalk city council will review a number of housekeeping items at tonight's work session.

The first is a resolution authorizing the mayor to submit an application to the Ohio Development Services Agency for a fiscal year 2014 Community Development Block Grant in the amount of $75,000.

Council also will consider an ordinance authorizing the finance director to pay Bowser Morner for geotechnical engineering for the Pleasant Street lift station project.

"This is about $9,000 for soil borings," said Josh Snyder, public works director.

Also on the work-session agenda will be a resolution authorizing the mayor to enter into a cooperative purchasing program with the Ohio Department of Transportation for the purchase of rock salt.

"There's not much salt left," Snyder said, referring to the large amount of salt the city used this past winter.

"There might 200 or 300 ton left," he added.

Council members also will take their first look at a resolution requesting the Huron County auditor certify to the city of Norwalk the total current tax valuation of the city and dollar amount of revenue that would be generated by a .8-mill renewal levy for recreational purposes.
