The Board of Perry Township Trustees met in Regular Session on Monday, November 9, 2020 at 7:00 p.m. by Virtual session.  Roll Call; John Brose, present, Terry Cook, present, John Baughman, present and Cindy Stalling present.  Rhonda Cook called in virtual.

Chairman Brose called the meeting to order and all stood for 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,

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 brought up about the crack-fill machine.  John sent Mr. Doug Henry, Zane Twp. Trustee, a video.  John walked around the machine and pointed out some things, and Mr. Henry is going to try to sell the machine on Deals.Gov. 

     Trustees discussed about putting a reserve on the machine.  They think maybe around $10,000.00 to $12,000.00.  Will run this by the other 2 townships and see what they think.

     Mr. Brose reported that the concrete pad would be poured for the exercise equipment at the park tomorrow.

     Mrs. Stalling reported that we have spent our Cares Act money. The Lucas devices are here but the video laryngoscopes are not here yet.

     Mr. Baughman reported that the cemetery bases are poured for the fall.  We will not be doing anymore until spring.

     Mr. Cook reported that the lights on the walking track are done.  The electric bill for the walking track lights has really went up.  This is another reason we are changing to the LED lights, it should lower our bill, and we will keep an eye on it.

     Mr. Brose reported that we are getting Shorty Fields to fix the spouting on the firehouse.  We will have Shorty check out the lights on the Christmas tree too.  Santa will be coming to town on November 29, and that is when the tree will be lit.

     We got Del-Mar to cut some limbs down and a tree behind the store. We have a couple of dead trees that need to be removed.

     Mrs. Stalling brought up that we need to pass our Insurance Resolution for 2021.


                                  RESOLUTION   # 11-09-20


   Mr. John Brose 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, 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.
