  1. Business from guests

John Hower – discussed insurance renewal and equipment coverage amounts.  Deleted coverage on 1994 IH 3128 Tractor and also SMT-21 700648 Motrim Mower.  Added coverage on 2020 IH Maxxum Tractor & Mower of $140,000.  

Discussed coverage for each line item.  He also discussed OTARMA and the differences between how their coverage works versus John with Ohio Plan Risk Management Inc.  

Volunteers are covered through our insurance; for example:  Dannette’s sons digging a grave – equipment would be covered and bodily harm to others would be covered.  If her sons were injured they would not be allowed to file a Workers Comp claim, but could file it in their own Health insurance.

He will get us an Uninsured Motorists coverage rate and additionally look a lower deductible for Comp and Collision deductibles. 

Dannette signed the application on behalf of the Trustees.  John shared he’d send me the invoice once adjusted with additions and deletions.  Lindsey will send back adjusted pages via email.

Jeff and Julie Reiswig – August 3rd found a hole in the house of their wall and a bullet int their bed.  They reported this to the Sheriff.  The sheriff has since closed the case.  Julie presented a map of where she thinks the bullet came from in a 1-mile distance.  

She had heard that Zoning tried to get restrictions on shooting and asked about putting a back stop on a target where target practice is happening.  Dannette shared that Ohio Revised Code does not allow for that.  The Trustees suggested posting on Facebook in the McKean Township Citizens Group to create awareness or reach out to the administrator of the group and the Sheriff as this is not a matter the Township can enforce via Zoning.
