Dear Editor and Perry Township Residents:
Highlights of the Aug. 11 Perry Township Board Meeting included the discussion of a loose stop sign at Fishback and Waln Roads. Township officers had made attempts to straighten the sign, which appeared to have been struck by a vehicle.
The sheriff’s department in a 2:30 a.m. call to Trustee Wilson told Wilson that it would contact the county for straightening of the sign, after Trustee Wilson told the department that he understood the county would take care of the situation.
Also, the trustees discussed a large and heavy television set that had been dumped in a ditch beside Fishback Road. Trustee Wilson stated that he had been unable to remove the TV by himself due to its weight.
Trustees Wilson and Creachbaum, and Fiscal Officer Smith decided to try to remove the abandoned television following this meeting. The issue of a septic tank lid that had allegedly been damaged by the township’s snowplow truck was revisited. The trustees moved to hire Jay Cockerill, at a cost undetermined, to further discuss the matter with the property owner and to uncover and replace the lid.
Fiscal Officer Smith informed that he found out that the township’s insurance would not cover any property damage until the property owners’ own insurance had first paid for the claim.
Trustee Creachbaum announced that Good Hope Care Center withdrew its request for a zoning variance to establish a birthing facility on a York Road property. Instead, the center has purchased a property in Ross County for its facility. Trustee Smith was not present at the August meeting.
