MARION TOWNSHIP — The Marion Township trustees held their regularly scheduled meeting on Monday with the following members present: Joseph Youngpeter, Howard Violet and Jerry Gilden.
The purpose of the meeting was to pay bills and conduct ongoing business. The minutes of the previous meeting were read and approved as read.
The trustees then reviewed the bills and gave approval for 26 checks totaling $10,797.71.
Road Foreman Elwer advised that the Road and Sign Inventories for November are done.
He made the trustees aware of some issues with the heating system in the maintenance building and the age of the system.
He also had quotes on removing trees in the ditch in the Cremean Road area and asked Violet if he would contact the county to see what help they could provide. Fiscal Officer Kimmet reminded Elwer that a Certificate of Insurance is required by the township for any contracted work.
Kimmet read a letter for ODOT regarding changes to the ORC pertaining to signage at railroad crossings and advised of a memo from the County Association regarding this issue and that the County Engineers office was also looking into this.
He also gave the trustees information regarding the phone and Internet system and they agreed to make changes necessary to upgrade the system which would result in a savings to the township.
There being no further business, a motion to adjourn by Gilden was seconded by Violet and passed unanimously.
