The McKean Township Trustees met in regular session August 12, 2019 with all trustees and fiscal officer answering roll call.  After the pledge to the flag by the group, the meeting was opened to the audience.

AUDIENCE-Two residents from Phillips Road were present asking for work to be done on the hill on their road.  The trustees agreed along with our roadman that we will take care of the problem. They also questioned noxious weeds.  The trustees stated they would follow the ORC 5579.04 if anyone in the township reported the noxious weeds. They also agreed they were very happy with the township roadman. The trustees thanked them.  Wes stopped in questioning the dumpster at the park. The trustees agreed that it was ordered in with the contract with Rumpke and would remain at the park.  

ZONING-Stan gave the trustees a monthly report, no permits were issued but several letters were mailed and phone calls answered.  The township has requested a survey of the cemetery across from the township building.

ROAD SUPERVISOR-Terry stated they were ready to chip/seal portions of Lafayette (Sportsman Club to Lundys Ln) and south to the Bird property, and Cat Run Rd to Timbuk. They would be working as weather permitted.  The trustees then discussed the truck and a bucket truck purchase or rental to be used Jan, Feb, and March. Trustee McInturff requested they bring the bucket truck discussion back up during the November meeting. It was also noted a funeral was scheduled for Sept. 3.
