  Regular Meeting Minutes

February 15, 2018


President Michael Parker called the meeting to order at 7:00 pm with the Pledge of Allegiance. 

Roll Call:

Roll call indicated that Trustees Michael Parker and James Stewart were present, Trustee Scott Leber was absent, also present was Phillip David, Fiscal Officer/ Zoning Inspector and Road Superintendent David Kelley.


Mr. Stewart moved to approve the minute for the February 1st Trustee meeting, Mr. Parker seconded the motion. Roll was called, with all present voting yes; motion carried.


Mr. Jason Dulaney and his wife were at the meeting to request that the Township allow them to install a new catch basin and drain tile in the Township right of way. Mr. Dulaney explained that he could not get a septic permit for his new home because he had nowhere to drain the water from his property. The current catch basin had been installed to shallow. He said the required tile coming from his perimeter drain around his septic field would be deeper than the current road side drain tile and catch basin.

Mr. Dulaney said if he was allowed, he would install a new catch basin and drain tile in the road right of way going west to the nearest creek. This new basin and tile would be deep enough for him to drain his property and obtain a septic permit for his new house.

After some discussion, Mr. Stewart moved that Mr. Dulaney be allowed to install a new catch basin and drain tile just inside the road right of way to drain his property. He added that all materials and installation would be at Mr. Dulaney expense with Mr. Kelley overseeing the installation. Mr. Parker seconded the motion. Roll was called, with all present voting yes; motion carried.

Mr. Dulaney thanked the Trustees for working with him on his drainage problem. He said that it was more step toward allowing his new house to finally be a reality.

Zoning Report:

Mr. David reported he issued no permits since the last meeting. He reminded the Trustees that the Appeals Board would be meeting February 22, at 7:00 pm to hear a variance request by Mr. Dulaney for a non-conform use of his property.

Road Superintendent:

Mr. Kelley reported that he had been busy hauling salt and stone to restock the salt shed. He said the Township was a couple loads shy of filling our contract reserve for 2018 salt purchases.
