Mr. Kelley reported that he had finished replacing the Township curve signs with the “high visibility reflector signs” mandated by the State. He said that they had been crack sealing in Margretta Township this week and weather permitting they would be moving to Oxford Township next week.


Mr. Kelley reported that he had been contacted by Curt Heyman concerning several dead ash trees along the right of way on Schaefer Road. Mr. Heyman was concerned that the decaying trees would eventually fall on the road. There was discussion about trees in the right of way being the responsibility of the landowner. It was mentioned that in the past the Township had paid to drop the tree with the landowner agreeing to clean it up once it was on the ground.  Mr. Leber said he would talk to Roe’s Tree Service to see if they would still honor their agreement with the Township to drop the tree for $300.


Mr. Kelley reported that Ridgefield Township had contacted him about doing some repair work on Stoneridge Road. After some discussion the Trustees said they wanted more information before committing to anything.

Mr. Kelley said he wanted to start mowing roadsides so they would be done for the upcoming holiday.

Mr. Leber said he would call Polen and find out what was going on.


Mr. Kelley questioned about getting the trees in the park trimmed up. He said one had some storm damage in it and the rest could stand to be thinned or trimmed up a little. Mr. Leber said he would talk to Roe’s about it.




Mr. Leber reported that he had talked with Lawyers Title Company, and they had said that the deed was ready to be picked up.
