Township Meeting - 10/15/2003

The regular meeting of the Board of Township Trustees, Newbury Township was called to order at 7:30 p.m., October 15, 2003, with all members present.  Minutes of the previous meeting were approved upon a motion by Mr. Fioritto, a second by Mr. Quigley, and a unanimous affirmative vote.

Fire activity reported by Chief Fagan included 22 calls month-to date, with 401 year-to-date.  Chief Fagan noted that the cement of the parking lot was beginning to crumble in places, and that the roof has to be maintained to prevent accumulation of water in certain spots.  Mr. Quigley said that he would review the parking lot condition with Mr. Hollis to see if any immediate action was needed.

The trustees briefly reviewed a police report as presented by Patrolman Aytay on behalf of Acting Chief Battaglia.  Road Superintendent Hollis was unable to be at tonight’s meeting; Mr. Quigley said that the Road Department had been working on Moss Glen asphalt grinding and miscellaneous upkeep around the garage, but had been unable to use the crack sealer as of yet.   The trustees discussed a proposed change in Road Department compensation to a salary plus overtime basis; Mr. Quigley indicated that the Road Department employees were reviewing this proposal and would be responding to the Trustees in the near future.

Mr. Majeski read a letter from the Auburn Township Trustees summarizing the agreement reached with the Newbury Trustees at the previous meeting.  Mr. Majeski brought up the issue of the decision on appointing a permanent Police Chief; Mr. Quigley said that he would have additional pertinent information tomorrow that could affect this decision.  The trustees agreed to meet next week after Mr. Quigley provided this information to them.

A general discussion period covered needed repairs at the township building used by the American Legion, and a report that the Land Use Committee has finished their work and will be ready to present their findings at the December 3rd township meeting.  Also discussed was the possibility of re-opening the sale of cemetery plots to outside individuals; Mr. Quigley agreed to obtain current pricing for a plot at other cemeteries in the area.  A quotation for a replacement front door for the town hall was reviewed; with the trustees concluding that they would prefer a wooden door in keeping with the architectural style of the building.

Street lighting issues were discussed, including a light at a Kiwanis Lake intersection that was installed on a resident’s property and paid for by this resident, but which primarily benefits the township by providing light for the intersection.  The trustees will look into taking over this light and possibly modifying the type of lamp and how it is mounted.  Correspondence received since the last meeting was reviewed by Mr. Majeski.  It was noted that a letter received from ODOT confirmed that there were no plans contemplated for a Munn Rd. interchange on Rt.422.  A letter was read from Marge Hrabak representing the Newbury Kiwanis Club offering to work with the Trustees to create a community billboard to be located on the northeast corner of Auburn Rd. and Rt. 87.
