HARRISON TOWNSHIP TRUSTEE MEETING

September 1, 2015

REGULAR MEETING CALL TO ORDER:

Chairman Keith Peters called the Regular Trustee Meeting of September 1, 2015 to order at 7:00pm at the Harrison Township Building, 2746 Weigand Road, Lockbourne, Ohio. Attending were Trustee Keith Peters, Trustee Doug Clark, Trustee Paul Welsh, Fiscal Officer MaryAnn Elliott, Fire Chief Eric Edgington, Zoning Inspector Joe DeFelice and Road/Cemetery Superintendent Kevin Hulse. Craig Stevenson was also present.

HEARING OF VISITORS:

  1. Craig was present to discuss marking the new section of the cemetery to begin selling lots in that section. The section is approximately 230 x 930. The Trustees would like to map and number one third of that section or about 200 lots. Craig proposed laying out this section for approximately $2000.00 and we would supply the identifying spikes. This would require 800 spikes and Mr. Peters will check on the cost of these and how to mark them.

ZONING INSPECTOR:

  1. We still need a member for the zoning commission to replace Jim Wells.
  2. The Olsson’s on Weigand Road have applied for a zoning application and may be appealing the denial of their zoning variance.
  3. The Zoning Commission will meet on September 28 to provide a recommendation to the Trustees for a gravel quarry on S R 23 in front of the power plant.

ROAD/CEMETERY SUPERINTENDENT:

  1. Kevin had an estimate from Duke’s Garage for $1325.00 to inspect and replace the brakes on the GMC snowplow. Mr. Clark moved to have Duke’s Garage replace the brakes on the GMC snowplow and Mr. Welsh seconded the motion. The Trustees voted with three yes votes. Motion approved.
  2. The road mower needs a new hydraulic pump. JD Equipment has one for $1080.00. Mr. Clark moved to purchase a new hydraulic pump for the road mower from JD Equipment and Mr. Welsh seconded the motion. The Trustees voted with three yes votes. Motion approved.
  3. Kevin asked for Friday, September 25 and October 1, 2 and 5 off as vacation days. The Trustees approved this time off.
  4. Kevin asked about the possibility of having the repairs to the road mower done at the prison. Mr. Peters offered to let Kevin use his trailer to take the mower to the prison once the mowing season is over.
  5. The property at 2802 West Duvall is supposed to be mowed on September 3 by the property manager. If this property is not mowed by September 4, the Trustees asked Kevin to mow it and we will charge the property owner.
