Mr. Snively and Mr. Hollis attended the pre-construction meeting for Cory Lane and the meeting was short and routine.   The construction will start on Monday.  There is one concrete driveway apron that will be changed to asphalt.  Mr. Snively also reported that 13 letters were mailed out certified mail about the neighborhood stabilization program.  Mr. Snively did receive several calls about these letters and they were handled.  Mrs. Blair and Mr. Skomrock attended the ODOT meeting in Columbus regarding the turning lane on State Route 87.  The driveway on Route 87 will not be shut down.  Mr. Hess presented a design and cost as estimated in prior years.  ODOT will review the cost, and extend the work on the turning lane 2 yrs until 2012 when ODOT is scheduled to be paving Route 87.  The state indicated that 629 money may be able to be used for the cost of the turning lane.  State Senator Grendell called Mrs. Blair today and he assured her that Newbury Township would not be charged in any way for this work, it would be paid for by 629 funds or State of Ohio funds.  Mrs. Blair will contact Nacy Panzica and fill him in on the progress made at this meeting.

 

Mrs. Blair reported on Oberland Park that effective tomorrow laser grading will be started and Wheeler will come in and seed right behind them.  Pattie and Hess will both be there to make sure the project is being done to specification.  The Road Department needs to take care of the drainage; this can be done in the spring.  Mr. Skomrock thought that work should be able to start with the foundation for the sign within a week or so.  Mr. Hess will have an accurate plan of the most updated information for the Park Board meeting next week. 

 

Mrs. Blair made a motion for more service/training on the township website from Inventure in the amount of 8 hours per quarter for1 quarter.  The motion was seconded by Mr. Skomrock, and passed by a unanimous affirmative vote.  Mr. Skomrock reported that the Town Hall improvements are complete except for the treads on the stairs.  Mr. Blair is going to provide them to Mr. Mansfield for installation.  Mr. Skomrock will check on the repair of the fogged windows.  Mr. Snively reported that the Ohio Township Association conferences are coming up and that the zoning department would like to send a couple of people, as Mrs. Endres thinks she has 2 or 3 people that want to go to the meeting.  The trustees decided that up to five people may attend.  Mrs. Endres will check to see who wants to go and report that to Mr. Snively.

 

Mr. Snively reported that the township received a bankruptcy notice from Abitibi the paper recyclers, who owe the township a total of $15.30; this notice will be given to Mr. Lair.  Mr. Snively also reported that he received an email from the Newbury Elementary PTO for sponsorship of “Family Fun Nights”, he is going to check on this further.   This meeting was adjourned at 8:23 p.m., upon a motion by Mr. Skomrock, a second by Mrs. Blair, and a unanimous affirmative vote.
