CALL TO ORDER:
Trustee Keith Peters called to order the Regular Trustee Meeting of August 16, 2011 at 7:00pm at the Township Hall, 2746 Weigand Road, Lockbourne, Ohio.  Attending were Trustee Doug Clark, Fiscal Officer MaryAnn Elliott, Fire Chief Eric Edgington, and Zoning Inspector Joe DeFelice.  Road Superintendent Kevin Hulse arrived at approximately 7:15.  Chairman Paul Welsh was on vacation.

FIRE CHIEF’S REPORT:
Andrew Bowen has asked Harrison Fire to sponsor him through fire school.  He wants to start school September 1, 2011.  We would have to cover him on our worker’s compensation policy.  Eric informed him that we would not cover any health insurance.  We will allow him to use fire gear and an air tank.  

RESOLUTION 11-62
A RESOLUTION TO SPONSOR ANDREW BOWEN IN FIRE SCHOOL.  WE WILL COVER HIM UNDER OUR WORKER’S COMPENSATION POLICY BUT NOT SUPPLY HEALTH INSURANCE OR ANY OTHER COMPENSATION.
  Mr. Clark moved and Mr. Peters seconded and the Trustees voted with two yes votes to approve R11-62.

ZONING INSPECTOR:

  1. Joe reported that Greenlawn wants to build another stick built house on their property.  They will be submitting another zoning revision.  They have cleaned up the property.
  2. Joe received a question regarding the zoning of one of the trailer parks.  He has nothing on file, but believes they would be considered “non-compliance permit use” because it is permitted but does not comply with anything in our zoning regulations.

ROAD SUPERINTENDENT:

  1. Kevin was asked to mow the ditch on the NE corner of Duvall and Bulen Pierce.
  2. Kevin requested vacation for a half day on September 15th and all day on September 16.  The trustees agreed.
  3. The trustees talked with Kevin about his timecard.  They asked the clerk to increase his vacation time by two hours for the phone time that was charged as work hours.

 OTHER BUSINESS:

  1. Mr. Peters spoke with someone from the PUCO about the Duvall Road train crossing.  They want to install collapsible rubber barriers at the crossing.  They are heavy barriers that a car would not want to drive across.  Norfolk Southern has agreed to buy them if we pay for the installation.  Mr. Peters will find out what the installation costs will be.
  2. Mr. Peters reported on the Jet Vac process on Duvall Road.  The project took less than two days and it appears that the project should cost between five and ten thousand dollars instead of the projected $100,000.00.  The ditch on Lockbourne Eastern north of Duvall Road will also be done and Mr. Peters will contact Clark’s office to put it out for bid.

HEARING OF VISITORS:
Brian Eddy of Duvall Road was here regarding Pandora Grain.  He stated that they have not done any of the things they planned to do, other than paving the entrance to their property.  Joe stated that the tile in the back is in and the tile along the side to drain water is in.  The blocks of solid concrete that were approved to build islands have been delivered.  Joe is continuing to check on their progress.

FISCAL OFFICER’S REPORT:

  1. MaryAnn received a phone call from Danny Bailey reporting an increase of traffic and speeders on Lockbourne Eastern Road from Airbase to Duvall Road.  He has requested a sign saying “Slow…children at play.”  The trustees asked the clerk to send him a letter stating that we are not able to enforce the 55 mph speed limit and suggesting that he report the speeders to the sheriff’s office.
  2. Next meeting we will meet with Frank Harmon and Mr. Elsea regarding health insurance.

ROAD SUPERINTENDENT: 
MaryAnn presented a list of questions from Kevin:

  1. The refrigerator at the cemetery quit working.  The trustees suggested they bring coolers to work to keep their drinks cool.
