January 10, 2022 at 7:00 p.m. at the East Liberty Community Room.  Roll Call: John Brose, present, Ken Rosebrook, present, John Gibson, present and Cindy Stalling, present.  Also present was Doug Henry, Melony Baker, Kyle Richards, Daniel Vertucci, Renee Rosebrook, Jessica Gibson, Sandy Wilcox and Neill Rhoades.  

     The meeting was called to order by Chairman Mr. John Brose and all said the Pledge of Allegiance. 

     The meeting was then turned over to Mrs. Stalling who asked for nominations from the floor for Chairman of the Board for 2022.  Mr. Ken Rosebrook nominated Mr. John Brose for Chairman of the Board, seconded by Mr. John Gibson. Brose, yes, Rosebrook, yes and Gibson, yes.  Chairman Brose then asked for nominations for Vice-Chairman of the Board.  Mr. Brose nominated Mr. Ken Rosebrook for Vice-Chairman, seconded by Mr.  John Gibson.  Brose, yes, Rosebrook, yes and Gibson, yes.  Mr. John Gibson will be the member for 2022.

           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 to the financial statements that were given to the Trustees from the fiscal officer.  They both stand approved by the trustees.

     Mr. Brose reported that the Trustees met with the Logan County Commissioners about the closing of the alley beside Virginia Montgomery’s property.  It was all approved of and is a done deal.

     Mr. Ken Rosebrook brought up that he had done some price checking on tables and chairs for the Lodge Hall.  He had numerous quotes.  He is also going to make a road trip to see some of them in the next couple of weeks.  He stated that the tables also come in gray and maybe we should check on a rack for the chairs.

      Mr. Brose reported that there is a leak at the firehouse, it is on the old shop building and it is over the door. 

      Mr. Brose reported that the garage door at the shop has been fixed by Watkins Door.  

      We received our Road Mileage Certification from the Logan County Engineer to sign off on.  We signed 2 copies, 1 for us and 1 goes back to the County.

     Mrs. Stalling brought up that we need to set our 2022 Appropriations Meeting.  It was agreed to meet the 18th of January at 10:30 a.m. at the East Liberty Community Room.  Mrs. Stalling will advertise it in the Examiner.

     Ms. Baker agreed that we need to replace the tables in the Lodge Hall.  She also reported that Mr. Joe Antrim, a Logan County Commissioner told Melony that he learned  lot at the Solar meeting that was recently held in East Liberty and that he is making it a high priority for him. 

     It was brought up about whether we need to have a zoning meeting with Brad from LUC about these solar panels or not? Trustees feel that something of this nature about solar panels being in Perry Township, should be something that should go on the ballot, for everyone to vote on.

     It was brought up about whether we are going to have an annual meeting with the Zoning Boards this year or not, we haven’t done this for several years.  If so, we should invite Brad from LUC to attend.

  Mr. Daniel Vercutti, from Invenergy, was here to see if we had more questions about the solar panels or not?  Mr. Rosebrook asked him about putting the property back as prior to having solar panels?  As to being in ground or above ground, Mr. Vercutti said the property will be returned to the state it was in prior to having any solar panels put on it.

It was asked how these panels are being paid for?  Mr. Vercutti reported that through tax money, grant money, apply federal tax credit, not local, bond vs stock, long Gevity and through banks and lenders.  Daniel said that the money would be distributed by tax levies.  He stated that this is a 4.4 million project with tax payments from the Company, to the land owner payments.  He said the low estimate is 2 million on taxes. 

     Daniel was asked again about the wildlife that lives on these properties?  

    Mr. Brose reported that a lady talked to him and she had a contract from the other solar panel company and she took the contract to her lawyer and was told that the 1st option when she would pass, is that the land would go to this solar Company.  She then took the contract to a 2nd lawyer for a 2nd opinion, therefore she never signed up for the panels.  Mr. Vercutti stated that her land should go to whoever inherits her land when she passes, it should not go to the Solar Panel Company.  Mr. Vercutti stated that he would look into this.

      Daniel was asked how large are you planning on getting in this area?  He said just what the Company already has planned.  280 megawatts @ 3500 acres. Not planning on anymore here.   If this amount of acreage doesn’t work for them, then they will downsize this project to make it work on that amount of acreage.  Daniel answered questions from the floor and was very cooperative and informative.  The Trustees thanked him for attending another one of our meetings to see if we had more questions.

     Fire Chief Doug Henry, reported that his credit card is getting ready to expire.  And he inquired to see if he could get a Lowe’s credit card, all Trustees agreed to let him have one.  Mrs. Stalling will order more Lowe’s credit cards.

     Chief had a report/quote from TRC for servicing the fire trucks. They will be DOT inspected.  The DOT inspections for 6 vehicles at $205.00 each, to have the oil change at an hourly rate of $82.00, the mechanic’s hourly rate is $67.00.  Chief wanted to have the Trustees sign a contract with TRC for the trucks.  This will be an annual contract, and also for general maintenance.  Mr. Brose made a motion to sign the contract, seconded by Mr. Gibson.  Brose, yes, Rosebrook, yes and Gibson, yes. 

     Mrs. Jessica Gibson brought up about getting 2 new i-Pads, the 9th generation.  A basic i-pad to get signatures of patients being transported to the hospitals.  It would be much easier on an i-pad instead of on their phones.  They would like to have 2, 1 for each medic.  This would also be more secure than on their phones.  After some discussion, Mr. Gibson made a motion for said purchase, seconded by Mr. Rosebrook.  Brose, yes, Rosebrook, yes and Gibson, yes.

     Mr. Rosebrook brought up about the property on the corner of S.R. 292 and C.R. 2.  It looks really bad and needs cleaned up.  Mr. Brose had sent him a letter in the fall, but got no response from the property owner, Mr. Charles Zigler.  Mr. Rosebrook is going to pursue this and will be sending him a certified letter.

 

           We then went into our re-organizational meeting. 

     Mr. John Brose made a motion that we leave our meeting on the 2nd Monday of each month at 7:00 p.m. at the East Liberty Community Room or by virtual meeting; all Special meetings will be advertised, seconded by Mr. Ken Rosebrook.  Brose, yes, Rosebrook, yes and Gibson, yes.
