Road Superintendent

Mr. Kelley reported that he talked with Mike Stark about working on the 2002 International truck once all the parts were in. Mr. Stark said he would be available in a couple of weeks and would lineup a time with Mr. Kelley to get the work done. Mr. Kelley said that he was going to be busy crack sealing with the forecasted good weather, and the truck wasn’t currently needed, so the timeline worked into his schedule.


Mr. Kelley reported that the work replacing the soft spot and broken asphalt on Livengood Road had been completed.




Mr. Leber said he had talked with Roe’s tree Service about the dead trees on Schaefer Road. They said after looking at the trees, because of their location to the overhead electric lines they will have to be cut and lowered with a crane. Mr. Leber said it would require setting up a time with Mr. Kelley because the road will have to be closed while they worked. He said the estimate for removing the trees was $1200 dollars.


After some discussion, Mr. Parker moved to approve $1250 dollars for removal of the dead trees, Mr. Leber seconded the motion. Roll was called, with all present voting yes; motion carried.

Fiscal Officer

Mr. David reported that an auditor from the State had begun the biannual audit of the Township records. He said because of the “good reports” received for the past audits, the Township qualified for an Agreed-Upon Procedure (AUP) that will save the Township money.


Mr. David said that the new tax tables from the State of Ohio had been downloaded for payroll, so everyone should take note of the difference in the state tax withholdings.
