President Michael Parker called the meeting to order at 7:00 pm with the Pledge of Allegiance.
Roll call indicated that Trustees Michael Parker, James Stewart, and Scott Leber were present as well as Road Superintendent David Kelley
Mr. Stewart moved to accept the minutes for the meetings in September and November 16 and Mr. Leber seconded the motion. Roll was called, with all present voting yes; motion to accept the minutes carried.
Residents Fred Moffit and Andy Dunlap were present.
None, however Mr. Moffit volunteered to be a member of the Zoning Appeals Board to fill one of two vacancies for alternate member. Mr. Leber also stated that Charles Rogers volunteered to fill an alternate position on the Zoning Appeals Board. Mr. Stewart moved to accept Mr. Rogers and Mr. Moffit and the Trustees voted unanimously to accept the two as alternate members.
Mr. Kelley reported that road-side mowing was done. He was placing stone berm on roads with the Freightliner and using the International truck for salt and snow removal until berming is complete. He will be installing the broom on the tractor to clean berm. Mr. Kelley said he had checked with David Pockock (Clark Equipment Sales) on the cost of a snow push box for the backhoe and the cost of a new 10 ft. box was $5200. He was also checking on used boxes via local landscaper. Mr. Leber said he found a good used one in Toledo for $2000 that may work. After discussion Mr. Stewart moved that we purchase the box in Toledo if Mr. Leber and Mr. Kelley find it acceptable upon inspection. Mr. Parker seconded the motion and the motion carried unanimously.
Mr. Kelley said the service department at Valley Ford had not contacted him yet on a date for warranty work on the F550. He also reported that service rep for the minor issue with the salt spreader on the Freightliner had not returned his calls yet.
Mr. Kelly reported that a verbal request for a “hidden drive” sign had been received from Samantha Gilbert who resides on the north side of the railroad on Ransom Rd. This request was due to a car leaving the roadway and striking a pole in front of her house. Although the accident was unrelated to the location of the driveway, due to the high grade of the railroad and low visibility to and from northbound traffic, Trustee Stewart moved to place a “hidden drive”sign for northbound traffic, Mr. Leber seconded the motion and it carried unanimously.
