HARRISON TOWNSHIP TRUSTEES MEETING

October 7, 2014

REGULAR MEETING CALL TO ORDER:

Chairman Paul Welsh called the Regular Trustee Meeting of October 7, 2014 to order at 7:15pm at the Harrison Township Building, 2746 Weigand Road, Lockbourne, Ohio. Attending were Trustee Keith Peters, Fiscal Officer MaryAnn Elliott, Fire Chief Eric Edgington, Zoning Inspector Joe DeFelice and Road/Cemetery Superintendent Kevin Hulse. Trustee Doug Clark was absent. Also attending were Jacob Slechter, from ODOT and residents Matt Rayburn, Dave Smith, Paul Pence and Chris Pence.

HEARING OF VISITORS:

  1. Jacob Slechter was present from ODOT to address the issues with the four residents on Bulen Pierce Road south of Duvall Road (SR 762). The main concern was with the driveway access and the property between the new Bulen Pierce Road and these existing properties. After much discussion the residents decided that the matter needed to be brought before the County Commissioners since they now own this property. The Trustees asked to be notified when that meeting would be so that at least one Trustee could attend.

ZONING INSPECTOR:

  1. Joe reminded the Trustees that we still need a new secretary for the zoning boards.
  2. Jayme requested pictures of Bailey’s property showing the zoning violation. Joe will get those to her.
  3. Jayme also needs pictures of the violation at the Burdak residence.

ROAD/CEMETERY SUPERINTENDENT:

  1. Kevin asked that we make the payment to Digger McCray. They are going to help fix the problem with the truck and they weren’t given any directions regarding the vehicles. The Trustees approved payment of this invoice.
  2. A truck carrying asphalt spilled asphalt on Weigand Road. The truck is owned by Shackelton Trucking, Hillsboro, OH and the driver was cited. He said they would clean it up by the end of the day, but never did. Mr. Welsh will call the truck company tomorrow.
  3. The backhoe needs a new blower motor. At Southeastern it is $187.45 or $166.00 from Hills. The Trustees approved purchasing it from Hills.
  4. Kevin asked for next Wednesday and Thursday afternoons off. The Trustees agreed as long as there is no funeral and everything is covered.
  5. Kevin has shoulder surgery scheduled on October 28th and will be out for several weeks.

FIRE CHIEF’S REPORT:

  1. Brooks Morrison turned in his resignation on October 1. His last day will be October 10th. He called in sick on Saturday. The Trustees stated that if he calls in sick again, he must have a Doctor’s excuse or he will not be paid.
  2. The chief would like to reallocate $35,000.00 of funds so that he can buy needed hoses, a PPV fan and the remaining seven sets of firefighter’s gear as well as cover regular expenses charged to Machinery, Equipment and Furniture.
