  Regular Meeting Minutes

September 6, 2018


President Michael Parker called the meeting to order at 7:00 pm with the Pledge of Allegiance. 

Roll Call:

Roll call indicated that all Trustees were present, also present were Phillip David, Fiscal Officer/ Zoning Inspector and Road Superintendent David Kelley.


There were no minutes to approve.


Ohio State Representative, Steve Arndt was present at the meeting to report on the business going on at the Ohio House of Representatives. He said as the 2018 session winds down, there are several bills important to Township Government that are stalled in committees. He urged the Trustees to contact their State Senators asking them to bring these important bills to the floor for a vote. Representative Arndt said in a session there may be upwards of 1200 bills submitted to the house for consideration, so far 250 have been brought to the floor and passed, most of the others will die in committee. The Trustees thanked Representative Arndt for taking time to come and discuss these important matters with them.

Zoning Report:

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

Mr. David said warning letters had been sent out to several residents for failure to obtain a pool permit, and after observing the lack of action on the owners’ part to clean up the weeds and junk, at 6109 Mason Road, and their failure to remove the portable outhouse, he was going to forward the complaint to the County Prosecutor for legal action.

Road Superintendent:

Mr. Kelley reported that they had finished asphalting Schied Road and had come in under the estimated tonnage to complete the job. He said the asphalt slips and total tonnage had been forwarded to Perkins Township for their records. Mr. Kelley said they would be moving to Wood Road next to complete the asphalt work.

Mr. Kelley reported that it was discovered that the rear springs on the 350 Ford truck were broken. He said it was trailered back to the Township garage and both rear springs were replaced and the truck is back in service.


Mr. Leber said the lot sold to Fred Moffitt had been surveyed. He said the parcel that was sold to Mr. Moffitt consisted of .5865 acres. He questioned what the next steps would be to register the parcel with the Auditors office. Mr. David said the township would have to do a lot split process, which would mean forwarding it to Regional Planning for approval, then it could be registered with the Auditors office.

Mr. Parker said he would be attending the Erie Regional Planning Commissions work sessions for filing for grants from the Ohio Public Works Commission

Mr. Stewart questioned if anyone was aware of the wires coming out of the ground in the road right-of-way by his house. He wondered what they were and who gave Nexus the permission to put something in the road right-of-way. There was discussion about the wires, it was questioned since all permitting for the Nexus Project was going thru the County, maybe they had. Mr. Stewart said he would be contacting the Engineers Office to see if they had issued permission and why Oxford Township hadn’t been notified about it.

Fiscal Officer: Mr. David said he didn’t have anything to report at this time.

Communications: Communications were reviewed.
