HEARING OF VISITORS: None

ZONING INSPECTOR:

  1. Jim Wells resigned from the Zoning Commission because he moved out of the township.

ROAD/CEMETERY SUPERINTENDENT:

  1. Kevin requested July 30 and 31 off for vacation. The Trustees agreed to these days of vacation.
  2. Kevin asked for a radio for Joey to use when plowing snow. There was then a discussion of how many radios the road department had vs. how many we are billed for. We are billed for four, but Kevin only has one. The Fire Chief will investigate this.
  3. The Road Mower has numerous problems. Mr. Peters presented bids for a new tractor and mower. No decision was made at this meeting.
  4. The air-conditioning has gone out on the 2003 Chevy roads truck.

RESOLUTION 15-49

A RESOLUTION TO APPROVE THE REPAIR OF THE AIR CONDITIONING UNIT IN THE 2003 CHEVY TRUCK FOR $400.00. Mr. Clark moved and Mr. Welsh seconded and the Trustees voted with three yes votes to approve R15-49.

FIRE CHIEF’S REPORT:

  1. The Chief presented the attached Chief’s report.
  2. A Site Survey is needed before we can go any further with the building plans and the Chief would like to have this done. It would be approximately $3000.00.

RESOLUTION 15-50

A RESOLUTION TO APPROVE HAVING A SITE SURVEY DONE FOR THE FIRE DEPARTMENT PROPERTY FOR APPROXIMATELY $3000.00. Mr. Welsh moved and Mr. Clark seconded and the Trustees voted with three yes votes to approve R15-50.

OTHER BUSINESS:

  1. Mr. Peters asked how much of the road that is being paved under County contract does the board want to have striped. The cost is $1100.00 per mile, and we are having a little over three and a half miles paved. Mr. Welsh suggested that it all be striped, especially for the Fire Department and for safety. When it is dark, it’s hard to see the berm without the striping.
