  Regular Meeting Minutes

July 16, 2020


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

Roll Call:

Roll call indicated that all Trustees were present, also present was Phillip David, Fiscal Officer / Zoning Inspector, and Road Superintendent David Kelley.


There were no minutes to approve.


No Guest were present.

Zoning Report:

Mr. David reported that he had issued one permit since the last meeting;

1.     Lot split for Thomas Sloma & Hermes Parker Land Holdings to divide a section of the old B&O Railroad right of way bordering their properties.

Mr. David reported that he was working on a zoning permit for Robert & Linda Joseph for a new garage and breezeway for 12511 Thomas Road.

Mr. David reported that he had a property search done on 9703 Thomas Road parcel #23-00124.000 belonging to Tamara D’Andrea, because of complaints about trash and weeds on the seemly abandon property. He said the report stated that the property is up for sheriff sale in the near future.

Mr. David reported that he had taken pictures of the weeds and un-mowed grass at 10316 Patten Tract Road which belongs to Quicken Loans. He said that he had talked with the property agent at Quicken Loans last year about the upkeep of this property and from the looks of it he would have to contact her again.

Road Superintendent:

Mr. Kelley reported that Ford F350 had blown a brake line and the shifting lever had broken so the truck was towed to Ebert’s for repairs. He said the repairs were done and the truck was back in service. Meanwhile he said he had been busy mowing road sides.

Mr. Kelley reported that they were going to start asphalt work but they were short truck drivers. He said Groton Township lost their truck driver and Margretta Township’s driver would be on vacation for the season startup. He said doing the paving with the single axle township trucks that only haul 5-6 ton per load means short actual paving times and with the asphalt plants being busy a lot of time waiting for the next truck to arrive. He said meanwhile the asphalt in the paver starts to cool causing rough startups when the next truck does get back to the paving machine. Mr. Kelley questioned if he could contact Erie County or Erie Blacktop about pricing for having them haul some asphalt with their tandem dump trucks. He said the bigger loads would help with the turnaround time of loads coming from the asphalt plant, thus eliminating the asphalt cooling in the paver while waiting for the next truck. The Trustees agreed the bigger trucks would eliminate some of the problems, they told Mr. Kelley to get some pricing for the hauling. There was some discussion about approaching the County first, being that we have done some work back and forward for each other in the past.


Mr. Leber said he had received the EMS run reports for the call to Liana Wensink’s house when her daughter was hurt. He said the run reports seem to conflict with the discussion at the last meeting between Mrs. Wensink and Ashley Ballah, he said he was going to call Ashley Ballah and request that the Trustees be able to listen to the actual EMS run tapes. The other Trustees agreed with his decision.

Mr. Parker suggested that the Trustees wait until after the last park reservation of September 26th before removing the old Jungle-Jim playset and installing the new one, the other Trustees were in agreement. Mr. Parker reported that Fire Chief Kerry Jett had said he had new “fire department signs” for the Oxford Township building bays where the engines were stored.
