They both stand approved by the trustees. Mr. Frank Harmon, of Ohio Insurance Services was here to go over our health insurance Policy. We got a reduction in our premium. We are going to a higher deductible with No prescription co-pay. We are not losing any benefits nor are we gaining any benefits. We are going from $7,810.39 per month to $6,173.44 per month. Mr. Harmon went over all the policy with us and answered our questions for us. This amount is good for us for a year. Mr. Jeff Rosebrook moved the following Resolution: BE IT RESOLVED, by the Trustees of Perry Township that the policy of paying hospitalization, dental and vision insurance for all elected officials and full-time employees will be continued. All policy coverage is to be the same terms and any premium adjustments will be made at the arrival of the next notice of each policy. BE IT RESOLVED, that if any elected official chooses not to have hospitalization, dental and vision insurance coverage that he/she may so elect to have life insurance instead. BE IT RESOLVED, that said payment shall be made from the General Fund, Gas Fund, Road and Bridge Fund, Cemetery Fund, Park Fund and Special Fund (Fire) as appropriated. LET IT BE RESOLVED, that in the event if a change or loss of the now existing coverage the Township would at that time pick up full hospitalization, dental and vision insurance to match the terms of the other official’s policies. Until such time life insurance coverage will be selected if he/she chooses the life insurance policy instead. Mr. John Brose seconded the Resolution, and the roll being called upon its adoption, the vote resulted as follows: Mr. John Brose aye Mr. Jeff Rosebrook aye Mr. Terry Cook aye Bonnie thanked the Trustees for the new lights in the Community Room. Victoria brought up about being upset with the Trustees changing their minds about her going on fire runs. First she can, and now she can’t. She stated that she is signed up to take her fire class and feels that she could go on the runs and help out. She can get the guys water bottles, stand back and learn. The Trustees told her that they are afraid of her getting hurt. The Trustees told her that it was their fault for changing their minds about her going on runs. John has done some more reading and has talked to other fire depts.. and they don’t let members go on runs until they have their card. Victoria said that we can’t keep changing our minds on what she can and can’t do. The Fire Chief wrote up so rules on this. Basically stating that a new member can not go on any runs until they have their card. They can come to the dept and do training. They can’t drive any truck until they have their driving training. Once she has her driving training then she can start riding in the grass truck. Then she would move up to the rescue, the tanker, and on up to the engine. She has got to learn how to run the trucks. Chief does not want her to go to fires until she has her card, but she can train on the trucks and learn what to do and how to drive them. That is the only way to get experience. Chief said it would probably take a year to do the training before she can go on a run. Chief said this is for all new members not just Victoria. Joe Torsell is qualified to teach the driving class. All members need to take the driving class, there is a written test and a driving test. Joe will have to do all the grading of the tests. ALL members on the dept will have to take the driving class unless they have proof that they have already taken the class. Mitch wanted to know if the 3 Trustees were going to take the CEVO driving class, as the dump trucks are considered emergency vehicles. John told him No. Chief said that this was just being picky and it was over. Victoria then brought up about little kids riding in the fire trucks. They aren’t going to take the class to ride in the fire truck. John told her this was a totally different situation, that is for the kids to ride in the trucks for parades and their guardians are signing waivers to let them ride. John went over the waiver and explained it to Victoria. Chief Montgomery stated that this subject is done, what he says goes and this is done! Chief Montgomery brought up that the tanker needs fixed and that the grass truck needs a new light bar. We had 2 estimates for fixing the tanker : 1) Sutphen for $7,534.00 and 2) Jeff Welding for $3,150.00. We have $500.00 deductible on the insurance. Mr. Terry Cook said to let the Chief decide where he wants to take it. Chief would like to see Sutphen fix it. Mr. Terry Cook made a motion to let Sutphen fix the tanker, seconded by Mr. John Brose. Brose, yes, Rosebrook, no and Cook, yes. We had a quote for the light bar for the grass truck. From Sutphen it is $2,300.00. A total for $2,971.00 to be installed.

He would like to have one at the corner of CR 10 and CR 154. With a new Community Room in it too. Could have pull through bays for the trucks. Matter was tabled after some discussion. Nice try Dave . Mr. Larry Wellington reported that they need 100 more of each number 0-9 for the emergency house numbers. They have around 40 houses done. TR 129, CR 142 and CR 2 are done. They also need some more fasteners and about 50 posts. Kacy Welty, the person we use for our oxygen supplies is not doing this service anymore.
