On June 7th, there will be a driving rodeo through the VFIS driving course. It is
mandatory for the members in order to drive any of the vehicles. There will be another
course in the fall.
I’ve received a letter from the prosecutor’s office stating it was ok to mandate some
training and still retain our volunteer status.
I’ve received some resignation letters this past month. Matt McManus, Deb Juba and
Melissa (Dash) Crooks have turned in their letters and gear. Devon McElhannon now
lives in Aurora and will be bringing his letter and gear to me.
Moved by Monroe, second by Conley to accept the resignations of the following from the
fire department: Matt McManus, Deb Juba, Melissa Crooks and Devon McElhannon. The
fiscal officer is to compose a letter of thanks for the trustees to sign. Roll: Monroe, yes;
Conley, yes; Pavlick, yes.

The fire fighters association has purchased a pop machine with 10 different selections
as a fundraiser with the drinks to be 50 cents each.
The association will also be purchasing a bookcase for the videos and books.
The prom program this year was a mock trial. The trustees also attended the trial.
Last month I attended a Fire District meeting with Medina City, Medina Township and
Montville Township. There was a presentation showing different options. At the end,
they presented cost estimates. Our township is not like Medina City or Medina
Township so I would recommend that we not join the proposed Fire District. I would
recommend that we enter into a more detailed mutual aid agreement with Litchfield and
Liverpool Townships. Bill Pavlick also attended and spoke with Mike Todd. Mike would
still like us to attend the June 2nd meeting. He has spoke with Columbus and believes a
grant will be obtainable to cover the costs of the feasibility study. The consultants there
had a fee of at least $35,000 and increased from there depending on who was
involved. Mike also stated we could invite Litchfield and Liverpool Townships to go
along. The June 2nd meeting will be at the Medina Township Hall at 7:00 p.m.
The Career Center has been doing some upgrading on their fire training tower. The
carpentry class has put in some rooms and an SCBA maze. They have some other
ideas planned also.
On May 30th there will be the “Run With The Bucks” and we will have a squad there.
We’re in transition with the Athletic Director. They have also asked for a squad to be
present at the soccer games. Ken is checking with the OHSAA to see what the
requirements are. We will continue to cover the home football games because he
believes it is good public relations.
I am concerned with the safety of our drugs with the various public meetings and
therefore would like to speak with Albright Security to see if we can adjust which key
phobs can be used to enter the bays where the trucks are. Rick Monroe commented
that there were other people with phobs and that no contractor or historical society
member should have one. They should only be in the hands of the trustees, fiscal
officer and employees. Dorothy Crouch will deactivate all non-employees whose phobs
are still activated which include Tom Croston and Frank Ehrman.
Moved by Monroe, second by Conley to approve the following:

Trustees:
Bill Pavlick:
 Vandalism continues to be a problem at our cemetery. A planter was dug up. The
sheriff’s department will have their deputies sit in the driveway when they have reports
to work on.
 Ron Pfaff has replaced ballasts out in the bay area.
 Columbia Gas came in yesterday to turn off our gas for non-payment. Bev brought me
a copy of the canceled check and I spoke with a couple of different people who will
investigate where the funds went, but did not turn off our gas.
 American Tree came and removed the trees on Branch Road and Tom Giese will do
the trenching in mid-July.
 I received some calls regarding the lateness of the newsletter since some did not
receive them until Saturday.
 I also had a resident asking why we didn’t plow the streets at the golf course area. They
are not a dedicated street and are maintained by the Homeowner’s Association.

May 22, 2008
Colene Conley:
 The Historical Society did receive their Letha House grant to bring in the barn from
Montville Township. The Building Department will need plans to see how the contractor
is constructing the building. The Historical Society will be meeting with Architect Kerry
Illes tomorrow.
 We had a special meeting on Monday to discuss an addition to the fire station.
 I have requested the Soil and Water District to gather all the information for the
Balanced Growth Plan. It doesn’t seem that a complete document exists. They will send
the information to the Prosecutor’s Office for Bill Thorne to review to see just what the
resolutions of support that have been passed mean. There have been concerns of
property owner rights.
 By Camelot on Spieth Road, there are flooding issues that are being reviewed.
 Irene Wolff called regarding the Wolff Brothers drive last month. Part of the side of the
road was caving in and Tom Croston went and repaired it.
 We have some patching that needs to be done on Wolff Road between Columbia and
Station.
 I’ve spoken with Jim Lytle regarding paving Spellman and Indoe. I’ve let him know that
we have applied for a grant for a sidewalk. He asked if we could get the sidewalk on the
old schoolhouse side done before he comes in so a smaller machine doesn’t “mar” the
pavement.
 I will compose a list of our roads that need centerline striping and will forward them to
Pat Crouch at the Highway Department since they are going out for another bid.
 I’ve also asked Pat to make some no parking signs for us to put at the cemetery and on
Hastings and Seven Bridges Streets.
 The Medina Co. Township Association’s executive committee will meet on Saturday to
discuss the fair booth.
 We’ll need the side of the Town Hall washed and the cupola needs to be painted at the
top of the station.
Rick Monroe:
 The culverts on SR18 by Fenn have been checked by Matt Simms from ODOT as well
as the culverts by the old York School. He’s hoping a hydro-jet will work. The hydro-jet
is shared between counties and he hopes to get it in June.
 The EPA has been contacted about the old York School. They were contacted by the
contractor. The EPA’s not too concerned about the brick and mortar, but he is
concerned about the floor tile if it is ground.
 Federal Signal sent two technicians out on May 7th to perform the maintenance on the
siren. They found bad brushes and springs and changed them. It is pulling high
amperage on the motor starter. Ron Pfaff will give me an estimate on the cost to
change that and dress it up.
 The gravel has been delivered for the old schoolhouse area. It was not spread as I
thought. Greg Dobson will level it and fix some other spots for $300.
Moved by Monroe, second by Conley to hire Greg Dobson to level and fix spots at the old
schoolhouse. Roll: Monroe, yes; Conley, yes; Pavlick, yes.


As everyone can see, the Orth-Stone house has been taken down. Everything went
well. The ground will need to be leveled out some, but it was just too wet when Butcher
and Sons took down the house.
Ron Pfaff’s PO needs to be increased for the bays to $900.

Rick asked Ken again about how the department codes the report information for
“Resident” or “Non-Resident”. One of our residents is being billed for the balance of his
bill that the insurance didn’t cover.
I’ve been asked to serve on the Commissioner’s Transportation Board.
FIscal Officer:

Comments/Concerns:
 Mr. Gilbert Fuller commented on the drive on his property by the rail trail that he’s heard
through the grapevine would have to be removed. At one time ditching was done and
removed one of my drives and didn’t replace it. I don’t want my drive dug out because I
need it for semi’s to get into the field. Dorothy stated that ODOT was going to contact
him. Mr. Fuller’s not sure who dug it up and took out my drive. The south side of the rail
trail flowed to the west and the north side flowed to the east. Mr. Fuller also commented
about the Balanced Growth Initiative documents and how they seem to be so difficult to
obtain.
Moved by Pavlick, second by Monroe to adjourn at 8:09 p.m. Roll: Pavlick, yes; Monroe,
yes; Conley, yes.
