The Board of Perry Township Trustees met in Regular Session on Monday, February 8, 2016 at 7:00 p.m. at the Community Room in East Liberty.  Roll Call; John Brose, present, Jeff Rosebrook, present, Terry Cook, present, and Cindy Stalling present.  Also present was  Rhonda Cook, Bonnie Brose, Larry Wellington,  Daina Welty, Kacy Welty, Linda Baldridge, Kyle Brugler, Doug Henry, Dave Cook, Mitch Current, Jessica Gibson,  Darren Conley, Leah Lookabaugh, Pup McColloch, and Joy Litteral.

   All stood and said the Pledge of Allegiance.

    The minutes of the previous meeting was given to the Trustees to read prior to this meeting.  Mr. Brose asked if there were any additions or corrections to the minutes and then asked if there were any additions or corrections the financial statements that were given to the Trustees from the fiscal officer.  They both stand approved.

     Mr. Doug Henry, assist. Fire chief, brought up about getting a gear extractor washing machine.  The system costs $3,716.00 and would have a 5 year warranty.  We have 28 sets of turn-out gear and with getting them cleaned now it is $56.00 each set.  That is costing us $1,568.00 now to get them cleaned once.  Doug has been checking around on this, after some discussion, Doug said they will be going to FDIC and can get some comparison prices and companies there. 

     The tanker’s auxiliary air brake pump is not working and they need to get the pump behind the seat checked out as well.

     Doug reported that the street light by his property is still out.  John has reported it.

     Doug brought up about the gas company that is putting in all these gas lines, can the fire dept. get a map of the lines, John said yes, we are going to be getting a map as well.

John is going to go around and take pictures too. Darren Conley wanted to know if the gas company is going to come back and fix up everyone’s yards.  John said that they said they would but he will check on it.

     Joy reported that at the county EMS meeting, the hospital is concerned with bedbugs.   There have been some problems at fire houses.  Joy reported that 91% isopropyl alcohol will kill bedbugs.  So, Joy went out and purchased this alcohol and put it in spray bottles. There is a bottle in the squad and one at the firehouse.  Only other way to kill them is with heat.  In a dryer on high heat for 10 to 15 minutes.  Joy reported that there is a new physician’s team at the ER and they are called Team Help Supplies. 

     Mr. Larry Wellington brought up about the corner on Hamilton Street going out 292.  There are semis taking that corner at higher speed than should be and running vehicles off the road.  His wife has been run off the road twice. Is there any kind of plan for that corner?  John told him we are very much aware of the problems there and we have called the State numerous times, and they aren’t going to do anything about it.  Mrs. Linda Baldridge lives on that corner and she suggested maybe a 3-way stop being put in.  Darren Conley reported that he called in a school bus driver last week concerning that corner as well. 

     Mitch had a quote from Bender Communications to install the repeaters in the tanker and the grass truck, for $2,538.40. Mitch went over the quote and what everything was going to cost.    After a lot of discussion, John wants 2 quotes from now on for radios, equipment, etc.  So, Doug will be getting another price before our next meeting.  Matter was tabled. These repeaters are supposed to help with communication on the scene.

      Mr. Terry Cook reported that he picked up the new picnic tables; they have been put together and are at the shop. 

     Mr. Jeff Rosebrook reported that the tile in the alley between Dave Sharp and John Baughman has been fixed.  There is a well in the alley and years ago they pounded a baseball bat in it and it quit, but is has started overflowing again.  The pipe rusted out and the bat rotted. 

     Britenstine is going to give us a price on drilling a new well at the fire house.

     We had a letter from Margie Cook and BWC is going to quit paying for her pain medicine.  Margie is going for a hearing and would like us to write a letter appealing that decision.  We wrote a letter and Margie was told at her hearing that that was the 1st time

They had ever received a letter from an employer asking for an appeal.  Her appeal was granted and BWC will continue paying for her meds.

     Terry reported that they got new tires for the Bobcat from Levans. 

    Jeff reported that he has Quality Asphalt coming tomorrow to give us estimates on the alleys and 3 streets.  John wanted to know our opinions on maybe chip/sealing the alleys instead.  The majority said NO. 

     There is a tree in the alley beside Ron Walls that needs to come down.  This tree is in the middle of the alley and Del-Mar will take it down for $770.00.

     John stated that the Gas Co. would like to have everyone signed up and they plan on doing the whole town.

     John brought up about getting rid of the old picnic tables.  After some discussion, it was agreed that we would # the tables and take sealed bids at our next meeting on the tables.  The tables will be moved up to the Temperance Street Garage so the bidders may look at them.  Cindy will make up some bid sheets and also advertise it in the Examiner. 

Some of them are in pretty bad shape.

     John has put a copy of the ballot on the website.

     We received a letter from the State about our gratis plates.  John took the list to compare with the vehicles. 

     John brought up about the 2 steel doors at the firehouse.  He had quotes from Best Doors & Windows for $3,300.00 and also an estimate from Rod Cook for $950.00 and we buy the doors for $956.00 and the 2 combination locks for $226.00 for a total of $2,100.00.    Jeff made a motion to accept Rod Cooks estimate, seconded by John Brose.  Brose, yes, Cook, abstained and Rosebrook, yes. The firemen will paint the doors.

     John reported that we get 50’ of free gas line at the firehouse from the dumpster towards the firehouse.  It ends up being 217’ more to the firehouse and the bld beside the firehouse. That comes to $ 750.00 and we need 2 risers for $509.00 and they are giving us a discount of $759.00 so we owe them $500.00 for the extra line.  They will be billing us for this. 

      Cindy passed out fraud information papers for the trustees to sign and have on file.

 John said they were asked about this at our last audit.

     Logan Co. Sheriffs sent us information on how many runs they came to Perry Township for.

      John brought up that we received a letter from The Solid Waste Management on their 5 year plan.  They wanted us to either pass their resolution or deny it.  So,
