They stand approved by the Trustees. Mrs. Joy Litteral reported that she is back at work with the EMS. We are glad to have her back. Joy reported that Deb Roberts contacted her about our EMS going up to Ben Logan schools to cover more athletic events. They want to cover more of the sporting events other than the football games. Joy was told that if we would have a run in Perry Twp. While we were up there the squad could leave and go on the run and they would call in a back-up. The BL Athletic Club wants all the county EMS’s to take a turn in providing service to the sporting events. Trustees wanted to know who will fill the squad at 4:30 p.m. when the daytimers leave. Dave Cook reported that they are already doing 3 football games. After some discussion, all the Trustees decided that the 3 football games were enough for this year. Squad Chief Dave Cook brought up about getting a new squad. Mr. Jeff Rosebrook reported that he talked to Terry Pfund and did some negotiating with him. He got $20,000.00 out of the old squad, the striping on the new squad and a new cot for a price of $175,693.00 for the new squad. This includes a loaner squad if something should happen to the new squad then they will bring us a loaner to use while it is being fixed. We are checking on an extended warranty also.

This quote from Pfund is a state bid. Mr. Brose complimented Mr. Rosebrook for his negotiating with Pfund. He did a great job. Larry Wellington reported that the 911 signs have come in and they have no holes in them. They also did not receive the numbers for the signs either. There should be 100 of each number 0 through 9 in the order. John will call and check on the numbers. Fire Chief Montgomery reported that they need 4 new tires on the rescue. The fire dept. is planning on keeping this vehicle at least a couple more years. Mr. Terry Cook made a motion to get 4 new tires for the reScue from Levans, seconded by Mr. Jeff Rosebrook. Brose, yes, Rosebrook, yes and Cook, yes. Levans will come down here and do the tires at the firehouse. The Fire/EMS has hired a new guy, Mr. Aaron Litwin. They will be interviewing another guy tomorrow too. Bonnie reported that there are some problems with the lights in the Community Room that needs to be looked at. Trustees will check them out. Dave Frangis is going to check out some prices on new lights tomorrow from Loeb’s where he works. Trustees are going to change the bulbs first and see if that works. If not, we will then replace with new lights. Mr. Terry Cook reported that T.R. 131 is done. Mr. Jeff Rosebrook reported that Paul Tracey contacted him about checking on the tile in front of his property on Foundry Street for the water in front of it. Is it Paul’s problem, the Township’s problem or the County’s problem? Trustees are going to check on it to see whose problem it is. Joy gave her opinion on the water problem in front of her home on Foundry St. which has been a problem for many years. Jeff asked about the new street light? John said that he signed the paperwork for it and hasn’t heard anything about it. John reported that the old sign frame at the gas station has been removed. Cindy had the official wording for the levies to be on the ballot in November. Trustees looked them over and all approved them. Terry brought up about the fall cemetery flower clean-up. We will put that all flowers need to be removed by Oct. 1 and re-decorating can begin after Oct. 8. Cindy reported that the phone in the office isn’t working. Phone Co was down to the firehouse putting in the new modem and they cut the line to the office. John will call the phone co tomorrow and have them come back out and fix the phone to the office. The siren is not turning, the part has been ordered to fix it, but is not in yet. Dean Moore will fix it when the part comes in. Terry reported that he sold a lot in the East Liberty Cemetery and has a base to pour. John stated that Oct. 11 will be dumpster day for the fall. Jeff will call and get the dumpsters set up for delivery. 8:00 a.m. until Noon. John reported that Joel Miracle stopped at the shop today and a Brian Kavanaugh lives on C.R. 8 is flooded in his barnyard and is going to run a tile under the road on CR 8 to make a larger tile to hold more water and then the township is going to tap into it on the tile that goes along T.R.132. This will be very beneficial to Mr. Kavanaugh. And there will be no expense to the township. We turned in our road work to the County Engineer for 2015. We are going to chip and seal 3 roads, Bible Road, Wolever Road and the northern part of T.R. 131 from C.R. 8 to the township line. Jeff asked if we were going to asphalt the old part of the walking track at the park next year. John stated that the park fund is depleting and maybe we should wait on this project. We should think about putting a levy on for the park for next year.
