Fiscal Actions:
Payables were presented. Trustee Sayre moved to approve payment of bills. The motion was seconded by Trustee Dever. All voted yea and the motion to pay bills was approved.

Fiscal Officer Bloxam noted some of payables included vouchers instead of checks. Vouchers included payroll taxes and OPERS payments to be made and reported online via the internet. Trustee Sayre asked if other townships paid bills using this method and Fiscal Officer Bloxam reported the majority of townships throughout the state do online reporting and payments giving the example that 98% report and make payments to OPERS online.

There were no reports.

Public Discussions:
There was no public attendance.

Old Business:
Proposals were presented and reviewed by the trustees to seal coat, crack fill and repair the parking areas located at the administration office and township hall. Trustee Williams noted one proposal suggesting crack filling in the front parking areas did not include the linear feet of cracks to be repaired and suggested he talk to the contractor before proceeding. Trustee Sayre made a motion to accept the proposal from McKee’s Blacktop Sealing for the amount of $1,689.00 to seal coat and stripe the rear parking lot. Trustee Dever seconded the motion. The motion passed unanimously. Fiscal Officer Bloxam reported she would forward the signed proposal and report the date to users of the back lot to inform them parking would be prohibited while seal coating and striping are being completed.

A proposal from Ahlum & Arbor Tree Preservation to trim trees on some portions of township roads not to exceed $4,000.00 was presented and reviewed by all trustees. Trustee Dever moved to approve the proposal. Trustee Williams seconded the motion. The motion to contract trimming trees was approved with unanimous votes.

Fiscal Officer Bloxam reported the new commercial grade carpet installation was completed at the Township Hall.

New Business:
Fiscal Officer Bloxam presented a questionnaire from the Solid Waste Authority of Central Ohio. Trustee Williams completed the questionnaire and agreed to be a contact person.

Fiscal Officer Bloxam requested specific review of printed materials received from the Ohio Township Association regarding House Bill 9 that took effect September 29, 2007 regarding the State’s Public Records Act. A draft policy was provided by the State Attorney Generals office. It is mandated that each political subdivision adopt a public records policy and requires all elected officials or their designees to attend three hours of public records training. Trustee Sayre moved to appoint Fiscal Officer Bloxam and the designee. Trustee Dever seconded the motion. All trustees voted yea and the motion carried.
