Minutes 03/18/2015

The regularly scheduled meeting of Newbury Township Trustees was called to order at 7:00 p.m., March 18, 2015, with Glen Quigley and Jan Blair present.

 

Ms. Anita Stocker from Geauga County came to discuss a CRA (Community Reinvestment Area) zone.  This would abate taxes on the real property in this area.  The county must create these areas and would handle all the paperwork townships cannot do this on their own.  The township would appoint two committee members.  The original tract of land must have a home on it and then can have other structures or businesses on it, like an industrial park with a home would be able to be abated.  The Trustees took no action on this.

 

Mr. Ober reported for the park board that there is a new eagle scout that wants to plant trees in the park.  He reported on getting Veteran’s park going this spring.

 

ScapeAbilities presented a contract for work this year at the same cost as last year in the amount of approximately $6,800 according to how many times they cut the lawn, this year.  Motion to accept the contact was made by Ms. Blair, 2nd by Mr. Quigley and a unanimous affirmative vote by all.

 

Ms. Hrabak reported the BZA hearing on the property at Elm and 87; they received a 1 year continuance to get the project going.

Ms. Mansfield presented the March 3, 2015 minutes for approval Mr. Quigley indicated a correction in the amount of the Fire Contract the General Fund will contribute $50,000 not $70,000, Ms. Blair made a motion to approve the minutes with the correction 2nd by Mr. Quigley                               and a unanimous affirmative vote by all.

 

Ms. Mansfield presented Resolution 20150318-01 allowing the township to accept donations for Veterans Park as allowed under section 505.261 of the Ohio Revised Code.  Motion to accept the resolution as presented was made by Ms. Blair, 2nd by Mr. Quigley and a unanimous affirmative vote by all.

 

Discussion then turned to the Geauga County Health District seeking authority to allow discharges to the road ditch.  Resolution 20150318-02 was presented allowing/disallowing the authority to Geauga County Health District for blanket authority to allow discharges to the road ditch as permitted under section 3701-29-16(G)(6) of the Ohio Administrative Code.
