Guests:  Dave Willinger, 8419 Ransom Road, was present at the meeting to discuss flooding problems he was experiencing on his property. After discussing his concerns, Road Superintendent David Kelley suggested that a catch basin be installed at the low spot where the properties meet the road right of way. The Trustees agreed that installing a new catch would help to elevate the surface water run-off. They told Mr. Willinger that installation of the catch basin would be later in the year because right now Mr. Kelley was in the midst of scheduled road repairs. Mr. Willinger “thanked” the Trustees for their help. Mr. Willinger gave the Trustees a $60.00 donation that had been collected during their recent family reunion at the park. He went on to say that his family enjoys using the park every year for their reunion.

Groton Township Fire Chief Kerry Jett along with Chris Acierto spokesperson for the fireman association was present at the meeting to discuss their plans to have a “touch a truck” event at Oxford Township Complex. They said they would have several fire trucks present for kids and adults to explore, and suggested having hot dogs and drinks for refreshments. Saturday October 14 was the suggested date for the event.  The Trustees were excited about hosting the event and said they would put a notice in the “Messenger” newsletter and publish it early so everyone would know about it.

Chief Jett said that some other things that would be available for the event would be child emblems for bedroom windows, and they would be taking orders for missing house number signs. The Trustees thanked Chief Jett and Chris Acierto for coming to the meeting and reassured them that they were happy to be hosting the event.

Zoning Report:

Mr. David reported that he had issued no permits since the last meeting. He went on to say that he had contacted Mark Janowich with the Erie County Health Department about a trailer located at 2909 Mason Road belonging to Isaac Mathis that was sitting loaded with garbage bags. He said Mr. Janowich said he would check it out and get back to him.

Road Superintendent:

Mr. Kelley reported that he had taken the 2002 International truck to Midway to have an electric brake controller installed. He said because the truck doesn’t have a tarp for hauling asphalt, they were going to use it to pull the utility trailer which has electric brakes. He said that while it was at the garage he told them to check for a possible oil leak coming from the steering box. After some discussion, the Trustees agreed that maintenance on the equipment was important, and it was best to get it done before winter season comes.

Mr. Kelley said they were finishing up crack sealing and would be starting paving next week in Groton Township. Once they were finished there they would be moving to Oxford Township.
