Temporary Water Issues During Construction of Ground Water Storage Tank

The Village is in the process of constructing a new Ground Water Storage Tank. The former Ground Water Storage Tank has been taken out of service and the Elevated Water Tower is supplying the entire Village system.

Pressure Relief Valves will be installed on two water hydrants at Old Rix Mills Road and the intersection of Delaware Street & Maple Ave. There could be intermittent water flowing out of these hydrants depending on the needs of the system. Please do not attempt to close off the hydrant as this is intentional and necessary for the system to function properly.

 Water customers, throughout the system, may experience varying water pressure and cloudy or discolored water. Please check your water prior to doing laundry. Water is safe for drinking.

 If you lose water pressure or if you notice water flowing out of the ground please contact the Village immediately.

Thank you for your assistance!

Food Truck – Results of Community Survey

Smokin’ Joe’s Burritos, a food truck located on Main Street, was allowed by the Village Council under a special 90-day trial. During the trial period, the Village collected feedback from residents of the Village and patrons of the food truck as to their thoughts and opinions.

The results of the community survey are in for Smokin’ Burrito Joe’s food truck. Please take a look at the responses from residents, businesses and visitors to New Concord. The Policy Committee of Council will review the survey results during a public meeting on June 12th at 5:00pm at the New Concord Village Hall. The meeting will take place in the Village Administrator’s office. Village Hall is located at 2 West Main Street, New Concord, OH.

The Policy Committee will make a recommendation that evening to Village Council on whether or not to refer the issue to the Village Planning Commission. If Village Council does recommend referral, the Planning Commission will be asked to develop a Zoning Code amendment allowing food trucks within the Village of New Concord. The Planning Commission would then send their final recommendation back to Village Council for review and adoption.

Please email Charlotte Colley, Village Administrator, with questions or concerns or call her at (740) 826-7671.
