LEWISBURG — State Representative J. Todd Smith attended Lewisburg Village Council’s meeting on Thursday, April 2, to share his support with council.

“If there are improvements, infrastructure, let us know and let’s get you in on the Capital Budget. We’re going to start pushing on that. Right now we’re doing operational budget and we have another four weeks of this absolute misery. Starting in the middle of the summer, we’re going to start looking for capital campaigns,” Smith said.

“My number one job is to get as much resources to our area, as much attention, so when there are things on your agenda to try and work on the next few years, let our office know. The office in Columbus is not my office, it is your office. Anything we can do for you, I want you to reach out to us and we will be here anytime that we can.

“Now, let’s get some things on the Capital Budget if you have them.”

Municipal Manager Jeff Sewert shared his thanks for Capital Budget money the village had received in the past.

“We were fortunate enough to receive State Capital Monies for the Bicentennial Store we purchased here a couple weeks ago. We matched that with Capital money, so thank you and Jeff Rezabek,” Sewert said.

•Sylvia Adams attended the meeting to ask council to approve a Color Run fundraiser for the Clas of 2021. They are looking to hold a Color Run on June 15 at 10 a.m.
