American Water Resources Solicitation
Sidney residents may receive notices in the mail from a company called American Water Resources. (“AWR”) offering water and sewer line service coverage. The company indicates that it offers water service line coverage at a special introductory rate and that they use local, independent contractors for repair services. 

Residents of Sidney are advised that the city is not affiliated with nor can we provide a recommendation on using American Water Resources. Sidney residents are not required to sign an agreement with this company for repair services.

The Better Business Bureau recommends that consumers review the water and sewer service line coverage details to be sure they understand the conditions under which their service plan applies. Coverage details and exclusions can be obtained by calling 1.855.800.5195 or by accessing the following website:

Gas pipeline upgrades underway in Sidney
Contract crews working for Vectren Energy Delivery (Vectren) have completed replacing gas mains and service lines in Sidney for 2018 as part of the company’s pipeline replacement program, which is a multi-year program to replace about 700 miles of bare steel and cast iron pipeline infrastructure throughout Ohio. In Sidney, nearly $2.7 million will go toward retiring nearly four miles of gas main and more than 300 service lines in 2018. Since 2009, approximately 19 miles have been retired within the city. Vectren intends to retire approximately 27 miles in Sidney over the next several years. To read the entire press release click here.

Fall Leaf Collection
City crews will begin the annual fall leaf collection service on October 28, 2019. City crews will have one truck in each zone of the attached map. Crews will be collecting leaves on a daily basis making several rounds through each area. All work is subject to change due to weather and equipment availability.

Please do not rake leaves to the curb lawn until October 28. Until leaf collection begins, all leaves must be placed in a biodegradable bag and placed at the curb for collection with other yard waste as a part of the weekly collection service.

Residents are reminded of the following leaf collection guidelines:

  • Place all loose leaves on the tree lawn, not the pavement or sidewalk and not in the vicinity of catch basins.
  • Ensure all leaf piles are free of garbage and other yard waste items such as brush, branches and large twigs are placed in a separate pile conforming to yard waste guidelines.
  • Commingled piles of leaves and grass clippings or piles of grass clippings will not be collected.
  • Ensure that no loose stone, asphalt or concrete is in leaf pile.
  • Contaminated piles of leaves will not be collected.
  • DO NOT park in/on leaf piles. If you do, they will not be collection.

Steering Committee Volunteers for Zoning Code Re-Write

The city is taking the first steps in the process to re-write the existing Zoning Code. The city’s consultant, Calfee Zoning, has completed a diagnostic review of the existing code compared to the goals and strategies of the city’s Comprehensive Plan. The diagnostic will be posted to the city’s website soon.

The next steps in the re-write will include the first meeting of the steering committee to discuss the diagnostic, and review proposed table of contents and zoning map changes. The steering committee members include representatives who have some knowledge and understanding of zoning, including contractors, realtors, business owners, architect/engineers, etc. We would also like to have one resident from each ward on the steering committee.

The anticipated time commitment  for volunteers would be 12-14 months,with four steering committee meetings, and attendance at public forums as available.

Persons interested in serving on the steering committee are encouraged to complete and return a Volunteer Application. Individuals with questions should contact Community Development Director Barbara Dulworth at 937.498.8131.
