Road Superintendent

Mr. Kelley presented several options suggested by Tim Lloyd at the Erie County Engineer’s office for removing the hump in Ransom Road after the rails were removed. After some discussion, Mr. Parker moved that they stick to the plan suggested by the contractor from NASA, which was simple removal of the rails and replacing asphalt damaged during the removal process. Mr. Leber seconded the motion. Roll was called, with all present voting yes; motion carried.


Mr. Kelley reported that he had finally talked with Danny Kidd about the problem with the lost of oil pressure in the 2002 International truck. Mr. Kidd verified that it was probably the oil pressure sending unit, saying that the truck computer would have shut the engine down if there was a complete loss of oil pressure. Mr. Kelley said he would order the sending unit and have Mike Stark install it.


There was discussion about the possibility of getting grindings from the County to use as berming material. Mr. Kelley said after talking with Tim Lloyd that they might be too coarse to be used for berming. The possibility of using some as a base for an access drive into the Bloomingville Cemetery was discussed.  It was decided that no decision would be made until the material was available for review.


Mr. Kelley said that he would be starting to mow the road sides this next week.

Mr. Parker said he didn’t have anything to add at this time.


Mr. Stewart reported that he had talked with A. V. Lake about replacing the side door to the meeting room. He said they no longer do small jobs like that, so he will contact Kock Aluminum about getting an estimate for replacing the door.


Fiscal Officer

Mr. David asks if there were any questions about the projected income and budget thru 2015. After some discussion, Mr. David reminded the Trustees that the figures for yearend were projected, and a clearer picture would be available once yearend was completed and they were working on budget for 2014.


Mr. David reported that he had received a bill and list of four fire calls from Milan Township that covered two months. It was questioned why they weren’t billing monthly, instead of letting them accumulate. One of the fire calls was for a “bon fire” that was listed as “out of control” at 3408 Bryan Road, which is rental property belonging to Ron Cull. The fire reported said that a warning was issued to Shannon Steel, the occupant, for violation of the Ohio Fire Code. During the discussion it was noted that it has repeatedly been posted in the “Messenger” that you should call the fire department before doing any burning, or you will be billed for the fire call. After further discussion, Mr. Parker moved that Ron Cull be billed for the fire call resulting from the illegal fire, Mr. Leber seconded the motion. Roll was called, with all present voting yes; motion carried.
