ZONING INSPECTOR:

ROAD/CEMETERY SUPERINTENDENT:

  2. The steps have been repaired at the cemetery and everything is ready for the Memorial Day Service.

FIRE CHIEF’S REPORT:

  1. The Chief presented the attached Chief’s report.
  2. The Trustees discussed the revised plan submitted by the architect for the remodeling work at the fire station to address the safety and code issues which must be corrected. The projected cost of the revised plans is still far higher than the Trustees want to allot for this project. Joe will contact a design builder for another estimate. There were also questions regarding whether or not this job would have to be bid at prevailing wage. The Chief will find out.
  3. Pickaway Ross JVSD has asked to enter into an agreement with the Harrison Township Fire Department to allow their students to do “ride time” with our firefighters/paramedics as per the attached agreement. They provide their own insurance and sign liability waivers. The Trustees approved this agreement.

OTHER BUSINESS:

  1. Mr. Clark asked if we can make all of Bulen Pierce a “No Passing” zone. A resident has reported that there have been several near misses because people are passing. Mr. Clark will contact the Prosecutor’s Office to find out what the procedure is for this.
  2. Mr. Peters presented a request from the Pickaway County Health Department for additional funds. They need an additional $1250.00 from our township. Mr. Peters will represent our Trustees at the upcoming meeting and recommended that we pay the health department the additional amount of $1250.00.
