HARRISON TOWNSHIP TRUSTEE PUBLIC HEARING

December 6, 2016

PUBLIC HEARING CALL TO ORDER:

Vice-Chairman Joe DeFelice called the public hearing of December 6, 2016 to order at 6:35pm at the Harrison Township Building, 2746 Weigand Road, Lockbourne, Ohio.  Attending were Trustee Joe DeFelice, Trustee Bill Welsh, Trustee Doug Clark, Fiscal Officer MaryAnn Elliott and Zoning Inspector Doug Czako.  Nate Green from The Montrose Group, representing NorthPoint Development was also present.

Trustee DeFelice read the Rules of Order for the public hearing.

The Clerk read the Legal Notice of Public Hearing published in the Circleville Herald on October 29, 2016.

Mr. DeFelice asked if there is anywhere in either of the contracts to expand the JEDD for NorthPoint that would obligate Harrison Township in any way financially.  His main concern was in the development of utilities for the NorthPoint Development.

Nate Green answered that there would be no financial liability to Harrison Township.  He stated that in the original annexation moratorium dated 2007, it states that sewer is the responsibility of the City of Columbus, water is the responsibility of Earnhart Hill and Roads are the responsibility of ODOT and/or the County.  He stated that the only financial responsibility for Harrison Township would be fire protection.
