Road Superintendent

Mr. Kelley reported that they were done wedge coating in Oxford Township. He said that they used 695 tons of asphalt on the north section of Ransom Road from Mason Road to the NASA fence. Mr. Kelley said he was happy with the outcome, he said with minimal care, the road, should be in good condition for a long time. Mr. Kelley said that once they were done wedge coating in Groton Township, they would be berming the section of Ransom that they wedge coated and any other spots that needed done.

Mr. Kelley reported that the 2002 IH dump truck had quit running while out on the job. He said that he called Mike Stark who came out and cleaned several wire connections and checked things over, he got the truck started, but he never did figure out what the problem was. Mr. Kelley said that the computer flashed several codes, but it couldn’t be determined if they were recent problems or something that had happen before the Township bought it. After some discussion it was suggested that the codes be wiped and then if it happens again the codes would be for the current problem at that time.

Mr. Kelley said that he had received notice from the County Engineer that they would tentatively start seal coating in the county August 8th.


Mr. Leber said he didn’t have anything at this time.

Mr. Parker was absent.

Mr. Stewart said that he met with Bob England, from the Erie County Health Department and, and Don Schaeffer, who was representing the elevator board, at Central Erie Elevator, and they inspected both Prout and Kimball plants. Mr. Stewart said that both plants had rotten grain lying around the bins and silos, and stagnant water and grain in the basements and pits that needs to be pumped out. Mr. Stewart said the Health Department is pressuring the Board to clean up the elevator sites and board up the plants, for health and safety reasons. Mr. Schaeffer said that the Elevator Board has no funds to attempt a cleanup, because all monies are being frozen by the bank.

Mr. Stewart said that the Health Department said they will continue to pressure the Elevator Board for results.
