Transcript of Township Annual Report given by Trustee Janet Vance on June 29, 2023
Since last year at this time, there have a lot of changes… Let me just mention of few of the most recent …
Oak Hill - The cemetery building will be refurbished thanks to a Blight Elimination Grant from the State, and without using Township funds.The tree canopy is being pruned back and stumps ground down. This is an on-going effort, but will allow for more sunlight, more grass, and less mold on the monuments. The road access to the new section of Oak Hill has been improved to allow better entry to the cemetery.
Ohioville Cemetery - We have had some tree stumps removed, along with a new American flag for the flag pole.
12. MARTHA STREET PARKING LOT - There is a great need for additional downtown parking, and since the township already owns property that runs along the trail, north of Martha Street, this would be a viable location. The Board will be discussing this issue with the DDA in the coming months.
13. SEWERS UPDATE - The bids will be going out in August; the permit applications are currently being actively reviewed. If there are any site changes to any private property, please take this opportunity to contact Aaron Nordman at Performance Engineering.
14. GENERAL INFORMATION - The Board initiated the first ever CIP (Capital Improvement Plan) for the Township. This will prioritize projects for the entire community. The Planning Commission worked to organize and advise the many submissions, and they are currently working on the Township's 10 Year Master Plan. The Board is working on written procedures to coordinate and support the first ever policy book the township has ever had. Also, during the Regular Township Board meeting, directly following the Annual Meeting, we will be discussing and approving our annual budget. The proposed Budget submitted by Supervisor Kramer is the first BALANCED BUDGET the township has had in over 20 years… all without raising taxes!
