Zoning Report:

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

Clark & Tiffany Garris, 5219 Taylor Road, for a 30 x 12 deck.

Mr. David reported that Rick Schnell, 12309 Patten Tract Road had stopped in for a permit for a horse barn. Mr. David said he had informed Mr. Schnell that being the building was for horses or ponies that no permit was required.

Road Superintendent

Mr. Kelley was reported that they would probably finish the Higbee Road project next week. He said in figuring the cost of the project the catch-basin cost had been left out. He said the project called for a 4 x 4 or 5 x 5 catch basin to set on the right of way on Higbee Road so all the drainage tiles could be connected to drain to the new 18-inch drain line going across Heymans field to the ditch. Mr. Kelley suggested that being the catch-basin sits on the Township road right of way and will be maintained by the Township, it should belong to the Township. After some discussion, Mr. Stewart moved to purchase the catch basin, Mr. Parker seconded the motion. Roll was called, with all present voting yes; motion carried 

Mr. Kelley said that Jake Wilkin had fixed the toilet and hot-water expansion tank in the garage restroom, the service man had questioned about replacing the toilet, but Mr. Kelley said he thought it wasn’t necessary. The Trustees agreed.

Mr.  Kelley questioned if the Trustees wanted to purchase new mulch for around the building. He said it had been two years since it was last done. After some discussion the Trustees approved purchasing new mulch for the flower beds. Mr. Kelley said he was going to purchase some yellow paint and a roller to redo the strips in the parking lot and in front of the fire door so people wouldn’t park there.


Mr. Leber was absent.  

Mr. Parker questioned about the grass at 2909 Mason Road he said that it     was getting tall and there is no sign of anyone at the house. It was suggested that the grass be mowed before it got too tall and the procedure be started for collection by the cost being put on Mr. Mathis property taxes.

Mr. Stewart reported that once the electric was connected at the Delematre Road building it would be getting the final electrical inspection

Fiscal Officer

Mr. David said he had talked with Sue Brown, Assistant Prosecutor for Erie County about selling the International Dump Truck directly to a buyer or did it have to be advertised again. He said she had said that if there weren’t any bids on the truck when it was advertised, it could be sold directly to one person by way of a resolution declaring it not useful to the Township anymore. Sue Brown had said that the Prosecutors office was down one Assistant Prosecutor so things were really backed up, but she would write up a resolution for the Trustees when they needed it.


Communications were reviewed.

Mr. Stewart moved to pay the bills in the amount of $13, 803.39, Mr. Parker seconded motion. Roll was called, with all present voting yes; motion carried.
