Zoning Report:

Mr. David reported that he had issued no permits since the last meeting.


Road Superintendent

Mr. Kelley reported that he had inventoried the remaining salt stockpile, and he estimates that we have 60 -70 ton of pure salt left. He said that barring any unforeseen snowstorms, we should have a good carryover going into the 2015 winter season.


Mr. Kelley reported that he has been pressure washing the equipment, getting the salt residue off, after cleaning the 1991 International dump truck he examined the dump box frame rails. He said the years of salt contact have taken its toll; they have several spots that are in need of repair. He said that he didn’t think the whole bed frame rails needed replaced, just reinforced with some plating. After some discussion, the Trustees told Mr. Kelley to get some estimates for the needed repairs.


Mr. Kelley reported that he had ordered a beacon light for the top of the backhoe. He said that while the unit was out pushing snow this winter, even though the emergency lights were flashing, approaching the backhoe from the side it was hard to see it in the snow. He said with the flashing beacon light mounted on top of the cab it would be visible from 360 degrees. The Trustees agreed with his decision.


Mr. Kelley reported that the road work report had to be turned in to Jack Farschman by the 20th of March. After some discussion, it was decided that the Board would have a better idea of the available funds for the road repairs after the next meeting, and he would still have time to turn it in.



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


Mr. Parker said he didn’t have anything to report at this time.

Mr. Stewart said he was also in the process of getting permission slips and copies of licenses, from all CDL drivers working for the Township, so he could request the annual license review from the Ohio Department of Motor Vehicles.

Communications were reviewed.
