HUNTSVILLE COUNCIL: Parole hearing for murderer discussed

Huntsville Village Council members came out at Tuesday’s meeting “strongly” opposing the possible prison release of Frank Mickes III, 47, who was convicted in 1986 of killing an 82-year-old Huntsville woman in her home.

Mickes will have a parole hearing in July. Letters regarding the hearing should be sent to the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections, Division of Parole and Community Services, 770 W. Broad St., Columbus OH 43222.

In other matters, Clerk Susan Yelton made a correction to the last meeting minutes to reflect that the Sheriff’s Office applied for the grant for police protection and not the “Indian Lake Region.”

Council is waiting on word of financial help from the Lions Club before moving forward with a plan to reseal the walking path. Quality Paving has given the village an estimate of $5,975, but the village does not have the funds to proceed at this time.

Village officials have compiled a list of properties that will be mowed at the owner’s expense if they are not mowed within 10 days of receipt of letters sent to that affect.

A Finance Committee meeting was set for 6 p.m. June 23. The next regular meeting is at 7 p.m. Tuesday, June 24.
