After review of the bills, Burnett motioned to pay the bills as amended; Canfield seconded the motion, roll call – all yes.
Canfield reported that she had spoken to Prosecutor Innes about the educational agreement. He stated that the agreement must be for all employees including part time and not be discriminatory. A work session will be set up with Mr. Innes to discuss this.
Burnett noted that he had met with the school board on the trade off issue with using the township employees to work on the school road as long as there was a close to even exchange with the school. He found out at the meeting that the school has only charged the Firemen once in the last 14 years for the use of the building for the Country Music Show and this amount could be used toward the exchange. Because of the traffic problems on Route 301 due to school traffic every morning and afternoon, our safety services cannot have clear exit down 301 so this is also a safety issue. The other road would open the school up to Route 303 and divert some of the traffic. The school will fax a letter stating their share of the project and what they expect in return. Our cost would be labor only as the school would buy all materials.
Burnett reported that he had received a letter from Lee Holztrager asking for a workshop with the trustees about road water and tile drainage through property in Pheasant Run which was recently awarded to him in a court case. Canfield stated that there is nothing to talk about until the property involved is in his name and he owns the property.
Burnett announced that the Prosecutor and Engineer have both reviewed the bids received for the Whitney Road widening and reconstruction. Burnett motioned to award the bid to Lytle Construction from Wooster in the amount of $197,258.58; Canfield seconded the motion, roll call – all yes.
Harper asked about the computer situation in the Fire and EMS department. No word has been received from the Fire Chief and this will be researched for the next meeting.
Being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 9:25pm.
